I don't think they'll even notice.

Apart from the smoke from crop fires, the festival of Diwali on the 5th with
all the fireworks didn't help either.

One source of a lot of smoke pollution in India at the best of times comes
from the burning of cow dung patties. There are a lot of cows wandering
around and wood and cow dung fires are one of the most common sources
of fuel for cooking.

Where improvements have been made in the air quality in many parts
of the world have come through improvements in exhaust emissions from
motor scooters and vehicles.

When you use to wander around places like Dehli or Bangkok, you could
come back inside, roll your tongue around inside the cheeks of your
mouth and literally taste the unburnt gasoline.

Delhi was the only city I could actually smell when overflying it at 34,000 feet

Can't say it was pleasant aroma.

Bleed air off, packs off

Then for the hairy legged hostie (said with a lisp):



"Ladies and gentlemen, to avoid nauseation and headaches, your captain has elected to turn the air cycling system off whilst over India and Pakistan. Please remain seated as oxygen masks will drop to prevent inhalation of outside pollution"

India, the world’s third-biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, has pledged to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2070. The ambitious commitment, made on 1 November at the high-stakes COP26 climate meeting in Glasgow, UK, brings India in line with other big emitters, including the United States, China, Saudi Arabia and the European Union, which have made similar promises.
Although scientists welcome the offering — which could contribute to the world limiting global warming to 1.5 C — they also caution that India’s pathway to carbon zero remains uncertain.
