New Delhi: After weeks of thick grey smog hung low across the capital where pollution level reached a new high, Delhi received rain on Friday evening. Throughout the day, the weather in Delhi was cloudy.
This comes as a relief for Delhiites as rain acts as a natural pollution-buster. It washes away toxic particles from the air.
Previously, alarmed over life-threatening high-level of pollution, the Delhi government was in talks with state-owned helicopter service company to aerially sprinkle water over the city to settle pollutants.
Due to the high level of pollution, the Indian Medical Association had declared this situation a public health emergency and they recommended residents to not leave their homes.
