India's capital Delhi chokes under 'hazardous' smog blanket | DW News

Air pollution in the Indian capital of Delhi has reached the highest levels so far this year. Authorities in the world’s most polluted city have declared a public health emergency. The smog caused more than 30 flights to be diverted from the airport. A government monitoring agency is warning there’ll be little relief in the next day or two.

  1. I once rented a room in a $1.5 million mansion in Florida from an Indian guy. He didn’t even have the house hooked to the city’s water system in order to save $60 per month, instead he set up pipes to take water from the Everglades and dump it back in. The stench of it was terrible and he got very hostile when I brought up to him. Hygiene is a joke to Indians.

  2. My SiL is a teacher she has done a semester long exchange in India. She said the air was so bad she was sick for weeks. The only place she’s ever been sicker was when she was in China.

  3. Indians have their priorities in the wrong places…Pollution,Water,Food,women safety…make these the issues.Forget every thing else. How will we fight other evils with weak limbs and sick bodies? Cancer has grown by 300% in India in just last 5 years…Wake up Indians…start asking your MPs questions on Pollution control!!!!

  4. It's because of farmers burning off remaining crops in the nearby villages. This happens almost every year during this time as winter arrives and its offseason for agriculture, so they burn off the remains which improve soil quality and helps in better crops during summer next year.
    It has nothing to do with overpopulation or pollution from cars and bikes because that happens all year round but this heavy smog comes only on the onset of winter when the crops are burned.

  5. Lol why they protest? No one told them to born 10 babies…

    They just had to reduce population by 1 child politic and they won't have such problems. But 1,4 billions? Are you kidding me? They doubled population just in 50 years…

  6. The so called world's largest democracy failed its people again. Pollution has been there for decades. Most international medias have turned a blind eye to it until recently. Democratically elected government made promises, but they did little to fix the real issue. People protest every year, but nothing has changed. India is full of talkers, but lacks actions.
