Sound of Pollution

Pollution levels in Delhi have shot up once again. This happened last year, this year around Diwali and now again. It is difficult to breathe and there is a burning sensation in the eyes, nose and throat. Doctors have advised limiting physical activities and staying indoors.  Day before yesterday I was badly afflicted by the pollutants in the air. The sound of pollution is a recording of how I was afflicted by the pollutants in the air.
