Watch Now: Narrating Polluted Tales Of Delhi
By: Aarushi Tanwar
Impact of Delhi’s air pollution
Delhi has become a burning furnace, enveloping all the hazardous gases and smog in the air over the recent years. Delhi has hit the charts of being the world’s most polluted city lately. In fact, 22 of the world’s most polluted cities out 30 cities are in India, says Greenpeace.
Everyone in the city is witnessing the disaster around but no one actually is looking into the root. Many are choking, number of people are dying and a lot of us have in common- breathing difficulty, nausea, throat ache, headache etc.
Capturing people affected by pollution
We have made an attempt to present our personal life stories affected by Delhi’s air pollution as a resident and migrant respectively. In this story media, we incorporated our visualization of environment with respect to its current state and the future state for which we all are contributing at massive pace.
Through this small contribution we hope to encourage people around us to start recognizing air pollution as a major problem at first and then sensitizing their children, family, friends and relatives about the same because indeed air pollution is a silent killer for which we must awake citizen science to bring larger impact through smaller changes in our lifestyles.
As we believe, “Change is a byproduct in the process!”
