The pollution in Delhi has reached alarming levels post Diwali this year. According to reports, Delhiites have been inhaling copious amounts of particulate matter (PM) composed of dust, dirt, smoke, and chemicals for the past three days. This has raised safety concerns all over the city as people have fallen sick and reported respiratory problems as well as itchy eyes. While bringing the pollution under control is going to need some drastic measures, you can for now escape the pollution by taking a shirt trip. Mercifully, Delhi is blessed with several getaways at a driving distance where the air is cleaner and can provide the much-needed respite right now.
