India: Smog chokes Delhi as air pollution soars | DW News



India’s Supreme Court has ordered authorities to shut offices in the capital New Delhi and nearby cities. The order comes after officials ordered schools to close and construction sites to stop work to reduce hazardous air pollution that is blanketing cities in noxious smog.
Schools in India’s capital New Delhi have closed for a week as of Monday. The shutdown is to protect children from the toxic smog that is covering the city. Delhi’s government has been vowing for years to clean up the city’s air. But as winter approaches, people in Delhi are bracing for the next air quality crisis.
New Delhi is one of the world’s most polluted cities. Now it has closed school doors for the entire week so children can stay inside, away from the smog.
Not everyone is convinced it’s a good idea. Because of the toxic air, hospitals are seeing a sharp rise in the number of patients with breathing difficulties, children among them.
Construction work is also banned for several days to stop the dust. And government offices must close until the end of the week.
Delhi’s smog is a noxious mix of pollutants from its millions of vehicles and many factories. Agricultural fires are also a major culprit as farmers in regions around the capital burn the straw, or crop stubble, left over from their rice harvest at the onset of winter.
Delhi’s government has vowed to clean the filthy air. But until it manages to get on top of the problem, the residents of Delhi will continue to suffer.

  1. हर बात मे हम government को ही दोष देते हैं क्या हमारा कोई फर्ज नहीं बनता हमारे देश के लिए क्या ये फर्ज सिर्फ उन्हीं का है जो cm pm नाम के चेयर पर बैठे हुए है
    *ये तो गलत बात है हम भले ही government को दोषी ठहरा सकते है लेकिन फ्यूचर मे तो इस समस्यायों का सामना हमे ही करना है अर्थात आम नागरिको को अगर सब मिलकर ये सोचे की कैसे हम पर्यावरण को पहले जैसे बना सकते है तो रियल मे हमारा पर्यावरण हद तक सुधर जाएगा अगर आप जायदा पर्यावरण मे ध्यान नहीं दे सकते तो कम से कम साल मे एक बात वृक्षारोपण कर दीजिए दोस्तों हमारे देश मे जितनी जनता हैं सभी एक वृक्ष लगाए
    तो क्या से क्या हो सकता है। *

  2. To improve pollution level we can do 5 main things.
    1. Promote public transport & make special Bus lane. For this kejriwal needs to buy 1500 or more buses but for last 5-6 years he has not buyed more than 100 buses.

    2. It should be made mandatory to plant small trees/herbs/shrubs/vegetables on the 70% area on the rooftops of each and every building.

    3. After each 100 meters of any society a small parks should be made and in that park those plants should be planted which reduces the pollution in more effective way like Neem(Azadirachta indica), Peepal( Ficus religiosa) etc.

    4. Corruption should be reduced in plantation in between the devider of the road. You will see at many places there is no plant or even grasses in the spaces left for plantation in between deviders of road. Individuals person can also these things or it can be prompted among children of schools. We can take their help in plantation. (Don't say me to follow. I have already planted more than 2000 saplings in my village which is now becoming trees in both side of road).

    5. Air conditioner should not be allowed to run in winter season.
    If you have some idea please share here.

  6. निंदक नेड़ा राखिये , आँगणि कुटी बँधाइ।
