Growing vehicle numbers and resultant congestion to blame

On World Environment Day, CSE warns Delhi’s air pollution and congestion crisis will worsen this decade if urgent action is not taken

Pollution: the great leveller

A harried parent called a few weeks ago. She wanted to know if the pollution levels in Delhi were bad and if so how bad. The answer was simple and obvious. But why do you need to know? Her daughter’s prestigious school (which I will leave unnamed) had sent a circular to parents, saying they are planning to shift to air-conditioned buses because they were worried about air pollution. She wanted to know if this was the right decision.

Take a bus……

Bus, walk and cycle power India’s mobility. Yet rapid motorization is snuffing life out of cities. Can Delhi and other cities reinvent the dream of mobility to get out of this urban nightmare? This needs inventive thinking, action and confidence to break out of the arrogance of old ideas!
