Meghalaya village stays Asia's cleanest 20.11.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
For artists making nature a theme for their art, this tiny village of 500 souls nestled amongst lush green forests in a remote corner in south of Meghalaya, along the Indo-Bangladesh border, is a perfect destination. Situated in the East Khasi Hill district, the village is famous for its cleanliness and of late has become an attraction point for central and various state government officials to learn tricks to make Prime Minister Narenda Modi's 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' (Clean India Mission) successful.

A day after pollution levels in the national capital skyrocketed to alarmingly high levels, the Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority (EPCA) has directed the Delhi government to impose all conditions under the severe category of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP). In a press release that was shared by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), the EPCA said that the GRAP is an emergency plan, which cannot be a long-term substitute to curb the city’s air pollution. The smog in the city has been caused by several conditions. These include the pollutants that come from Punjab that is the result of stubble burning, and the others from eastern Uttar Pradesh that come through moisture in the air. The pollutants collide at higher altitudes and this, minus ground wind level, has resulted in the smog-like situation in the national capital. On Tuesday, the Indian Medical Association declared a public health emergency and requested the state government to shut schools and advised people from ...
