India asks its people to stay at home and stay safe During Lockdown, Government of India had ordered to people to stay at home and without any urgency no need to come outside. Don't risk your life to come outside and practice social distancing. During Lockdown all markets, shops, offices , school  and places of worship are  closed, most public transportation suspended and construction work stopped.

Due to the widespread of corona virus people are at home and do their work from home.  On the other side, the Mother Nature is rejoicing with the move as the people are at their homes giving her a opportunity to unwind and mend from all the pollution caused by the humans. Earlier, the deserted look of Mumbai has been on a run on social media platforms showing the true beauty of the city and how we always try to make it look bad with creating hurdles. With less to no humans on roads means less pollution, clean beaches, and clean air. The photos of empty and clean streets are unrecognizable as people prefer to stay in their houses. Recently a video of dolphins swimming near Marine Drive went viral on social media after which many people were surprised to see what few days of lockdown has transformed the Mother Earth.

People are even mesmerized as they can see flock of birds in their surrounding which were once nowhere to be seen. As India is said to enter in Phase 3 where the spread will rise rapidly and all we can do is stay safe and stay at home and be a responsible citizen while appreciating the view of Nature. 

As per a study based on 2016 data, at least 140 million people in India breathe air that is 10 times or more over the WHO safe limit and 13 of the world's 20 cities with the highest annual levels of air pollution are in India.

Emissions come from vehicles and industry, whereas in rural areas, much of the pollution stems from biomass burning for cooking and keeping warm. In autumn and winter months, large scale crop residue burning in agriculture fields ? a cheaper alternative to mechanical tilling is a major source of smoke, smog and particulate pollution. India has a low per capita emissions of greenhouse gases but the country as a whole is the third largest greenhouse gas producer after China and the United States.

The Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act was passed in 1981 to regulate air pollution but has failed to reduce pollution because of poor enforcement of the rules. Already, data shows that the main cities are recording much lower levels of harmful microscopic particulate matter known as PM 2.5, and of nitrogen dioxide, which is released by vehicles and power plants.

 Before COVID-19, all over the globe are being suffered by a high level of urban air pollution especially in the form of CO2, SO2, and NO2. The main sources of pollution such as transportation, factories, power stations are responsible for the augmented output of all these pollutants. Various agencies all over the globe announced such as clean air programs to reduce particulate matter pollution levels. Delhi gets first smog tower today: 5 things about the air purifier at Lajpat Nagar.

First smog tower has been installed by the Traders Association Lajpat Nagar . It will aim at treating 2,50,000 to 6,00000 cubic meter air per day and release fresh air in return.

Conclusion:  Such pandemics have taught a lesson to human being, so that they can know the value of nature.
