@utsav: I think you have hardly lived in any other metro, specially talking about NYC? are you kidding me? wake up dude!! Doctors advise you not to go for a morning run but walk due to high carbon content!! Like check out what Beijing and NYC feels like in terms of air quality.
#Utsav on Sep 29, 2013 :
I dont think so....the air quality is not that bad..Compare it with any international it beijing or NYC..its better than them..some amount of pollution is bound to b there in a huge metropolis..And quality of water is good too.i've been living here since 23 years.And i dont find any problem with it.Though I have problem with the roads and infrastructure of this city.And also overpopulation.But still quite comfortable and free compared to other cities.
