I blog about Delhi’s toxic pollution levels every year. But this year I’m doing something different. I’m going to list down for my recommendations for air purifiers, anti-pollution masks, car air purifiers, and air quality monitors. Everything you need to survive the horrific levels of pollution in Delhi. I’m delighted to finally see awareness hitting […]
I spent a week in Delhi this winter, measuring the pollution levels inside the house, and outside. This is what I observed, and experienced.
After spending a couple of days in Delhi during the winter of December 2015, I can honestly say one thing – Delhi is choking under a toxic cloud of dust and pollution. The toxic cloud is deathly combination of PM 2.5, PM 10, dust, and other noxious gases. It constantly looms over the city and is so […]
If I asked you which is the world’s most polluted city, you’d probably say Beijing. Sure, with the amount of attention the media gives the Chinese capital, you’d be among the many who believe it to be true. However, the funny thing is that Beijing doesn’t even feature in the top 20 most polluted cities […]
Almost two years later, Delhi is faced with another international high profile rape case. That’s not having to say that this is the only rape case in Delhi in 2014, in fact far from it. But its heightened importance for the world at large is due to the fact that the perpetrator was a driver for […]

One the night of Lohri, a couple of us friends were driving back from Dadhikar Fort when I told these guys – tomorrow is going to be one foggy morning! And it was. Pretty damn foggy. So what has fascinated me about the fog every winter is how within a few hours it drifts away […]
Last year, there were close to 600 reported rapes in Delhi. The unofficial number is probably more than double that. Since the unfortunate incident in Delhi last weekend, there have been two more reported rapes, one minor in Delhi (again) and another gang rape in Uttar Pradesh. Why aren’t we protesting against those, or thousands […]
Seriously, what the hell is going on in Delhi for the past few days? Am I the only one concerned about the quality of air we’re breathing? Does anybody give a shit about this thick layer of pollution over the city?
