Come the festive season in India around November and the menace of Airpollution skyrockets ! While big promises are being made at Glasgow , COP26, we are struggling to catch a clean breath !
Back home the AQI is presently between 400-500 . The Central Pollution Control Board shares daily data that sends shivers down our spine ! How does one remain healthy with such high pollutants in the air ?
Health suffers , mental health too ! The state governments of four states play the blame game while Delhi NCR citizens wonder who is going to take the responsibility of solving it ? TV channels are addressing the issue in full flare . Environmentalists are loosing patience over the incompetence of the state government . Who will stop the stubble burning , do we only blame crackers burst during Diwali? The answer lies within the mysterious burning of Parali in midnight and non implementation of pollution norms for industry and construction sector . I on the other hand speak up loud and clear on behalf of my countrymen . Give us our basic right for clean air !
