Jhatkaa! Air pollution very high in Bengaluru

BENGALURU: In order to raise awareness about rising air pollution in the city, Jhatkaa, a campaigning organisation, had installed lung-shaped air quality monitoring instrument outside Sampurna Montfort college at Old Madras Road.

"It was installed on January 30 and within couple of days the lungs had turned grey and is much darker now. It reveals the level of pollution in the city," said Avijit Michael, Executive Director of Jhatkaa.

He further added that the idea behind the installation was to give the city residents an idea of the polluted air they breathe.
