Pollution hits new high

The quality of air seems to be deteriorating by the day. Now, the air smells foul even in residential areas and in downtown one cannot walk around without a hand over your nose. Most of Bangalore's air pollution, in fact all, owes its origin to automobile exhaust. Friends who have visited Delhi say that ever since CNG was introduced as the fuel for automobiles, thanks to a Supreme Court order, the quality of ambient air has improved by leaps and bounds in what was once India's most polluted city. Why not extend this benefit to other cities too?
