Monday morning, the national capital woke up to a dense smog in the air, with just two days left for Diwali. The stubble burning in Haryana and Punjab farms is considered the main cause behind the smog.

The weather office has warned of worse air quality in the days to come. Earlier in October, Supreme Court had issued an order, allowing sale of only "green" firecrackers, to hopefully reduce the pollution risks this Diwali. The citizens of NCR have been advised to avoid all kinds of outdoor activities.
