It is my attempt to make us all more aware and conscious of the ill-effects of air that is polluted by our own actions. I hope this initiative makes people stop to think each time they pick up their car keys to drive small distances, or switch on gensets during power-failures, or burst crackers at celebrations. We all want progress and development. But not at the cost of depriving future generations of the beautiful world we have known. Let us celebrate our many technological achievements. Let us celebrate progress and development. But let us first celebrate the clean, wonderful air we breathe, and do all we can to preserve it”.
