Infamous as the world’s most polluted large city, Delhi took a small green step on October 22 when it launched its first ‘car-free day’, a campaign that saw a dramatic dip in pollution levels for a short while.

The campaign was led by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia and other cabinet ministers, all of whom left their cars behind and rode bicycles instead in a city where air pollution allegedly kills one person every hour.
