Every year we visit kolkata from USA and inspite of all developments in the roads, transports, availability of electricity, it is the air quality which invariably makes us sick. We could never leave kolkata without some upper respiratory illness. Kolkata administration please follow NGT’s permissible air quality index AQI and give a breathing space to its residence.

But we need help of all the citizen of Kolkata.

Kolkata is a city of Joy...the home of Mother Theresa. Pollution is high and the city is over crowded. But life goes on as the people adapt to the environment. People do live here and there is peace and harmony among all the different cultures. Yes we do admit there is lot more to be done. But each day things are changing for the better. We will get there slowly but surley.
This was once the capital of the British India let us not forget.

I wanted to visit Calcutta this winter but was frightened off by the extremely high PM 2.5 level. Today, the weather station monitor atop the American Consulate reports a reading of 235. That number is so high that a person would have to be suicidal to visit or stay there, literally life threatening.
