This week's debate on The Big Fight focusses on questions raised by New York Times correspondent, Gardiner Harris on whether it is ethical for parents to raise their children in an environment that could be potentially hazardous to their children's health. Mr Harris raised the issue of air pollution as perhaps one of the determining factors when it came to living in India. The panel debated how the situation may improve with this raised awareness regarding our environment, however it will take much more than initiatives by the government for some substantial changes to take place.

X Ray of Air Pollution in Delhi

India has the uncomfortable honour of being one of the most polluted countries in the world with 13 of its cities on that list, and the national capital prominently on it. An alarming number of school children have asthma or other respiratory disorders in spite of efforts to enforce guidelines for industry, the use of cleaner fuel, or encourage public transport. Nothing seems to work, nothing seems to help.

The air pollution levels in Delhi are showing no signs of decreasing. High temperatures have doubled the ozone levels over permissible limits in some parts of the city in the last 10 days.
Ozone causes inflammation in the lungs and reduces lung function. It also causes chest pain, coughing and makes diseases like asthma and bronchitis worse. Environmental scientists have been concerned about the spike in the level of ozone gas in the last few years.'s
