Dear Indian people, smoke fog cause so many people bought and drove cars. From past decade, our salaries have been increasing few times. No one wants to take the modern developed subways, mega trains, buses and so on. Enjoy your freedom and poverty!

Smog is not a phenomena but man made. Industrial smoke spread over the country which may around a radius of 500 kilometer never moves away but come down with fog is just like a solid smoke affect the bronchus and is deadly. Many Industrial country are suffering from smog . As this is manmade smog can't move from the area to another country. So greener country or states are absolutely free from pollution.
