The only thing consistent about Delhi in the last few weeks has been its AQI levels. It's literally severe and is definitely not safe for kids to be out in the open.
But apparently, Children's Day is an exemption from that situation. Because, this morning, dozens of children were all running in the street without masks, at a time when schools have been shut down to protect them.

This has obviously pissed a lot of people off.
On one hand schools are closed due to pollution, on the other hand this. Who's the organiser?https://t.co/kEtLfuxxn4— Rohit Agarwal 🇮🇳 (@ragarwal) November 14, 2019
