The Capital is Choking 13.10.2017 DNA: Money
For Rajesh Awasthi, Delhi's winter always meant crisp, sunny weekends that his family would often spend picnicking in parks, or near India Gate. Then the pleasant season gradually became a health hazard. "This air was our lifeline. We have made it so toxic that it now takes lives. It's heartbreaking to see my five-year-old son wake up in the middle of the night, coughing and choking," said the 35-year-old MNC executive at his South Delhi apartment. The air in Delhi, one of the world's most polluted cities, has already reached alarming levels, according to the government's real-time air quality index. Thousands are scrambling to hospitals, complaining of breathlessness, watering of eyes, cough, and wheezing. With Diwali, when the quantum of toxic pollutants spikes fourfold, only days away, the Supreme Court (SC) has banned the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR till November 1, almost two weeks after the festival of lights (October 19) will be over. Residents in this region will not be able to purchase ...

Street food express 7.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
It is often said that in India, food and language change every few kilometres. In a vast country like ours, street food is as diverse and limitless, with each region having its own specialties. Many food connoisseurs consider India's capital Delhi as the national street-food capital. From Paranthe Wali Gali in Chandni Chowk to late-night anda parathas at Moolchand, thukpa in Tibetan Market to various state stalls in Dilli Haat, Delhi's street food scene is exciting. Bittoo, the male protagonist in the movie Band Baaja Baaraat, would earnestly profess 'Bread pakodey ki kasam'. Delhiites are likely to swear by their favourite snack as easily as they swear at their best friend. While chhole bhature is typically Delhi, on the streets you are more likely to find pushcarts or bicycles with large brass containers selling chhola kulcha, a soft flatbread served with chhole that's dry or curried. Hawkers trawl the streets and office complexes carrying baskets of ram laddu or deep-fried moong dal pakodas, topped ...
