Delhi has been dealing with pollution for quite some time now. But the situation gets worse every time during Diwali. People, despite prohibitions and bans, burst crackers leading to the skies you see today.
People are pissed about it and #DelhiChokes has been trending on Twitter since last night.

Who are these people who find delight in killing themselves and their family and friends by burning crackers and polluting the air. Time for bursting crackers is over but it looks like its just getting started. #deathbybreath #DelhiChokes— Ignited Mind (@IgnitedMind7) October 27, 2019
#DelhiChokes what a shame.. despite so much efforts… Delhi is still choking— Vishal Sharma (@vsharma1001) October 28, 2019
Those who lit crackers should be HAPPY with their achievements today. EVEN MORE happy because their acts would lead to the sacrifice of 4.6 million people each year who die of air pollution. Jai Hind🇮🇳 #DelhiChokes— Nikhil (@iamkukreja) October 28, 2019
The reason why #DelhiChokes each year is people perceive air cleanliness as elitist propaganda.— Swayam Tiwari (@swayamt) October 28, 2019
If you truly want to persuade Delhiites from not lighting crackers, you need to really clean the dirt and filth from the city even at the cost of sacking municipal employees.
Guys, it would have been great if your read more about PM 2.5 and how pollution from crackers affect the body.— Shubham (@ShubhamMalik19) October 27, 2019
To all those bursting crackers non- stop:
We’ll all die soon because of you guys. I hope you do too. #CrackersWaliDiwali#DelhiChokes
These outraging cracker-warriors are stupider than the proverbial man who sits on a branch and tries to cut it. The worst part is that there are others sitting on the same branch and these dolts are going to screw us all! #DelhiChokes— I am back (@libertariandesi) October 28, 2019
We seriously need to change this habit of ours. Agreed, that there are other major factors contributing to the pollution in this city but bursting crackers is definitely not helping the case, is it?
