In India, life under coronavirus brings blue skies and clean air. Delhi is one of many capitals enjoying improved air quality since restrictions were introduced due to the coronavirus.
These days, Delhiites are stuck at home except when picking up essential goods. But above them are blue skies, the moon and the stars, seen without the usual barrier of smog. The sight is so striking that “I feel like complimenting the sky for its beauty,” said Sameer Dhanda, 26, an architect.

India is notorious for its air pollution — among the worst in the world. The speedy drop in the level of particle pollution by nearly 60% in capital city New Delhi has surprised experts, but the clean air has come at a cost for the country.
Much of India’s economy has stalled, forcing vulnerable workers to journey hundreds of miles to return home by foot, and millions of people may slide into poverty or starvation.

Surface winds have picked up some speed in Noida. Nature is doing whatever it can to help NCR folks. Now its up to us to act. Use minimal vehicles, stop burning waste, stop construction.
