Breathe Delhi, breathe!
Delhi has been having a hard time breathing these past few days. Post Diwali, the air quality of the national capital dipped so low that people had to wear masks, even at home.
Just this week, the Air Quality Index of Delhi reaches above 600. This means the air we breathe is harmful to us. The Air Quality Index (AQI) is a measure of air pollution. Anything below 100 is okay, but if the AQI crosses 100, it could be dangerous for people to even breathe.
The dense smog made it difficult to even see at some places.
The Delhi government has announced odd-even policy again to control pollution. According to this, on alternate days, vehicles with numbers ending in odd or even digits would be able to ply on road. If your car number ends with 2022 and you happen to travel on odd number day, then you will be fined.
The pollution was so bad that even cricket players had to wear mask and play for T20 Cup happening between India and Bangladesh in Delhi.
So much so, many flights were diverted as they could not land in Delhi due to low visibility.
