Pollution levels in Delhi have reached alarming levels after Diwali celebrations on Sunday night. Citizens woke up to a city enveloped in smog while the air quality went up to the ‘severe’ category for the longest time. Not only Delhi, but many parts of the country got blanketed by the smoke caused by fireworks during the Diwali festivities. This Diwali, many celebrities had come out to pledge against the use of crackers and urged everyone to do the same. This initiative by actors and cricketers should be beneficial for the environment, but looking at the pollution it caused, there seems to be no respite. The jibe between actress Richa Chadda and a few of her followers is a good example of it.

During Diwali, people were advised to not venture outdoors as the air quality turned ‘severe’. This kind of pollution can cause severe effects on the children and elderly, especially those with heart and lung diseases. The Centre’s System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) recorded the level of respirable pollutants, PM 2.5 and PM 10, at 283 and 517 micro grams per cubic metre respectively around 8 PM on Sunday, violating the safe limits by multiple times. The prescribed standards of PM 2.5 and PM 10 are 60 and 100 respectively, and anything beyond that can harm the respiratory system as the ultra fine particulates can embed deep into the lungs and also enter the bloodstream. Actress Richa Chadda went on her usual slay mode to answer many of them. After she tweeted, “Everyone who burst crackers yesterday has a death wish! What do we need more Oxygen or momentary light n fumes?” Here are some of the replies and how she got back at them:
