Electronic waste from homes turning city into toxic dump (January Week #2 (2015))
While pollution control boards have put in much effort into creating efficient systems for the storage and disposal of hazardous waste generated by industries, there is virtually no method whereby hazardous domestic waste is treated. Batteries, cell-phones,
old mixers and expired medicines find their way into city landfills, where chemicals percolate into ground-water and rivers.

Delhi’s polluted air may force Obama to stay indoors (January Week #2 (2015))
NEW DELHI: Amid reports that the US may curb President Barack Obama's early morning schedule during his visit to Delhi later this month, air pollution monitoring agencies said the levels of 'PM2.5' or fine, respirable particles that get lodged in the lungs
are likely to be in the range of moderate to high in the period while he's here.

Air quality, because of the high pollution in the city, is routinely rated by the US embassy pollution monitor as "poor" — in other words, unhealthy. It's in that context there is speculation that the US authorities here could
seek to curtail Obama's "outdoor activities" during his visit.
