Delhi's air quality severe; slight relief likely ahead of Diwali

IndiaTimes Thursday, 9 November 2023
The air quality in Delhi is in the 'severe' category, but there is expected to be a slight improvement ahead of Diwali. The city's Air Quality Index (AQI) is currently at 420. Stubble burning in neighboring states accounts for 38% of the pollution, while transport contributes 12-14%. The Delhi government has rescheduled the winter break for schools and banned app-based taxis. The odd-even car rationing scheme will also be implemented. Doctors have warned that breathing in Delhi's polluted air is equivalent to smoking 10 cigarettes a day.

Transforming Ayodhya: Confluence of Tradition, Modernity & BJP's Winning Mantra | Oneindia News

#AyodhyaTransformation: PM Modi blends Hindutva with a focus on world-class infrastructure, urging citizens to celebrate Diwali at home on January 22. The town undergoes a renaissance with the inauguration of Ayodhya Dham Railway Station and Maharshi Valmiki International Airport. It's the beginning of 'New Ayodhya,' a global hub seamlessly blending tradition and modern amenities. The move aligns with BJP's ideological pursuit, integrating religious symbolism with modern infrastructure. The airport's name holds cultural significance, adding Dalit outreach to the narrative. Ayodhya's transformation links it to the Modi government and BJP's visionary projects. #Ayodhya2024 #AyodhyaTransformation #HindutvaPlus #NewAyodhya #BJPIdeology #CulturalRenaissance #Ayodhya2024 #TraditionMeetsModernity# PMModi ~PR.282~PR.100~HT.95~

Doctor addresses the increasing cases of heart attacks among young people in India | Oneindia News

On the increasing cases of heart attacks among young people, Dr Naresh Trehan, Chairman and Managing Director, Medanta Medicity says, "There are multiple reasons. We know that India is the capital of coronary artery disease. But in addition to that, the modern lifestyle where we have a lot of consumption of food, which is very rich preserved junk food in special, all the beverages have high sodium content and all that, that's also creating problems. Then in addition, the stress of daily existence and the pollution is taking its toll. So all these things put together, we know that people who are living in an environment like Delhi where the AQI is very poor, the incidence of high blood pressure and lung diseases are going up usually and then heart is not behind. So that is why we really need to understand that in this current environment how we cope with the different elements that are producing higher and higher incidences of heart disease and also younger and younger patients collapsing from it. So this is a main concern to us." #HeartAttacks #HeartAttacksInIndia #IndiaHealth #India #DrNareshTrehan ~HT.292~GR.123~PR.151~ED.102~
