Smog over the city: view from Nandi Hills, 271114


I took this picture from Nandi Hills, The grey band in the lower part of the photo shows the skies over Bangalore. It was appalling to realize just how bad our air actually is. I have, several years ago, seen this kind of smog over Los Angeles…well, we can be proud that we have caught up with US cities in this awful respect!
