The Dingy Story Of Our Choked Capital – New Delhi

The capital city is yet facing another gust of man induced problems. The delights of Diwali are now showing their ill effects. On the morning following Diwali, the city’s visibility was badly affected.  Despite the considerable amount of awareness among the folks, people carelessly used fireworks which caused such a pathetic condition of the city. As a result, an alarmingly huge quantity of SMOG was reported in the air.

Smog is a scientific term used for a mixture of fog and smoke. It holds close to the ground and thus disrupts the smooth functioning of the transportation system. Vehicular exhausts added to the intensity of the smog.

The condition of the smog has been reported as the worst in the past two decades. The air quality was reported as “severe”. Inhaling such toxic air is very injurious to health. Smog not only affects the lungs, but also the heart. Common impacts of the smog amongst the people include coughing, sneezing, breathlessness, irritation in the eyes.

Though the condition seems to have improved right now, there still remains an enormous amount of toxic gas in the air. People are advised to wear masks and not expose themselves too much to open air. Precautions like this would subsequently prove to be helpful as the condition is really pathetic. Even the schools were closed by the chief minister for the same so that the children remain unharmed.
