Air pollution has been a hot topic for debate for over a decade now. Well, that literally means we have been talking about it for more than 10years, but for what? I live in one of the most heavily polluted cities of India. Yeah, Delhi, the capital and I have been a mute spectator of all these debates. I see a steady increase in vehicular traffic in spite of having one of the finest networks of metro railways. Every year people talk, and then they drive away in their super luxury cars back and then it’s all forgotten. We all think we have been a part of an environmental cause and then we get back to our mundane lives. Every year the population index shows a more ghastly figure and we mothers buy all possible masks and scarves for our little ones. Every year population increases, illegal industrial units keep increasing, vehicles increase,and we get together to talk!The government measures are not helping either. Places with high levels of pollutants have been passed off as having “satisfactory” air quality. How do we rely on such data? But after more than a decade of talking about it how ready are we to combat this air pollution? I wasn’t sure a few years back. But today the mother in me is looking for answers. I need the means to protect my kid and have seen many other mothers facing the same predicament. So I come back to my initial question: Are we ready to combat pollution now? Combat, not really but with the advent of technology, luckily we can monitor and ensure it is safe for our family!
