Post the Indian festival of Diwali, country s capital made news for all the wrong reasons as Delhi woke up to its worst smog in almost 25 years. The schools/colleges were shut, business was affected and there was a significant rise in the number of patients with repository problems. Worst, cricket matches in the city also took a hit as a couple of Ranji Trophy games were being called off due to poor visibility caused by the smog. Even as the local administration pondered over the implementation of odd-even rule once again and other corrective measures, Team India s Test captain and local boy Virat Kohli came up with a video message and series of tweets for the Delhites.

Kohli, also a resident of the capital city, took to Twitter to express his concern. He posted a video message on Twitter along with other tweets, asking the people of Delhi to be more aware, sensible and intelligent adding that the future depends on how we act now. Kohli added that it was heartbreaking to see the pollution levels rise so high. Life is precious is nature is our lifeline. The air we breathe, the water we drink. It is our responsibility to be more conscious, first of his three tweets read.
