New Delhi, India's capital city, faces a serious problem with thick smog that goes way beyond what the World Health Organization considers safe for air quality. Despite trying various tactics like closing schools, limiting vehicles, and banning firecrackers, none have really solved the problem. Now, the government is considering an unusual method called cloud seeding. This technique aims to create rain artificially to clear up the polluted air. During winter, things get even worse due to farmers burning crops and the air not moving much. Although the government is interested in cloud seeding, they still need official permission to proceed. The people living there are looking for a long-term solution to improve the city's air quality, which has become very difficult to breathe.
