In Pictures: Lives lived under India’s coal burning and agricultural fire induced particulate hell.

According to media reports, select Indian cities are on the verge of going into lockdown once again, only this time it is a pollution induced event. Ironically, after knee-capping COP26 by insisting on weaker language with regards to coal use, New Delhi is on the verge of shutting down due to smog generated by the burning of coal.

This gallery takes a quick look at lives lived under smog in India.
