My booger is multicolored

Dear Daniel,

Today, when I woke up, my booger was a vivid shade of green. Soon after breakfast, it turned a gory yellow. Right after dinner, it was a polluted grey. I have a full blown sinus infection after 7 days on antibiotics. This pollution is killing me. Delhi's government is working to combat this obvious problem of murderous air. It had issued a warning to elderly and children to not leave their homes during peak hours because the air is toxic. The air is toxic. One of the saddest parts of this situation, apart from slowly witnessing my lungs corrode, is that car pollution aside, it's developed countries that are the biggest culprits when it comes to climate crime. By outsourcing production to the developing world, and not upholding international standards, they leave developing countries drowning in diesel and choking on industrial fumes.

My heart aches and my lungs collapse in bouts of uncontrollable coughs.

How much can we hurt our planet, our home...

In wonderment,
Suparna
