On Thursday, New Delhi, the capital of India, declared a state of "pollution emergency" due to the toxic smog that hung over the city for three days in a row. Citizens complained of headaches, coughs, and burning eyes as the city was forced to close down public buildings like schools. Doctors in the area declared that the air in New Delhi has become so unhealthy, breathing it is roughly equivalent to smoking 50 cigarettes a day.

2 days of shooting in Delhi and my chest hurts, head hurts, & throat is paining. Can’t believe we have let things go so far....— Parineeti Chopra (@ParineetiChopra) November 8, 2017
Why introduction of Odd-Even and other vehicular restrictions will have zero impact on air pollution. Need to focus on the real problem of crop/garbage burning, construction etc. Traffic management is a separate issue, and odd-even is not the solution even then. https://t.co/w1Z3rVGndi— Sanjeev Sanyal (@sanjeevsanyal) November 9, 2017
