Air pollution  11/08/2019 19:27:44 

With the Air Quality Index exceeding 500, indicating high level of air pollution and very poor level of oxygen in the air, Delhi was literally choking for about a week. One of the causes for such a high degree of air pollution was the irrational burning of crop residue by farmers in Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. The enormity of the smog and pollution impelled the Supreme Court to intervene. Whatever be the standards of Indian polity and bureaucracy, we the Indians should be proud of having the best apex judiciary.
