After all the festivities have ended, the real problem has just begun. 👊 
Delhi already comes in the list of most polluted cities in the world, all thanks to the rising levels of global warming. Reports show that pollution levels this Diwali have increased dramatically when compared to last year.

LET US BREAK IT DOWN http://emoticony.leestone.co.uk/emoticons_standard/glasses-nerdy.png

Particulate matter is the sum of all solid and liquid particles suspended in air, many of which are hazardous. This complex mixture contains for instance dust, pollen, soot, smoke, and liquid droplets. 🤔

They are classified into two types 😮 :
1) PM 2.5
2) PM 10

Both the particulate matters are very harmful to our respiratory system.🗣

The Acceptable limit for PM 10 is 100 micron/ meter cube. But in Delhi, it shot up to 1680 micron/meter cube, which means the concentration was nearly 17 times higher than the acceptable limit. 😱😱

Similarly, the acceptable limit for PM 2.5 is 60 micron/meter cube, but it shot up to 500 micron/ meter cube; which is almost 8 times higher than the prescribed limit.😷😷

These particles go and settle deep in the lungs and get absorbed into the bloodstream, It's the main cause of various respiratory problems, lung cancer, and various cardiovascular diseases.🙅 😕
This has also affected vehicular movement on roads as there is almost zero visibility due to the formation of Smog. 💭

No wonder there's a rise in patients suffering from Lung Cancer and other respiratory ailments. We at India e-Paper have celebrated Eco-Friendly Diwali by zero-usage of Fire Crackers. 😇😇

Let's not destroy the environment.http://emoticony.leestone.co.uk/emoticons_standard/good.png Let us work hard in preserving our environment and natural resources for our future generations.❤
