Canadian singer-songwriter, Bryan Adams was astonished to see his shadow in the pollution of Delhi-NCR during a live concert. The Have You Ever Loved a Woman singer was in the capital for a live-concert, last Sunday.
While sharing a dusky image from the Leisure Valley Park in Gurugram, Bryan Adams captioned the image “In this photo, if you look carefully you can see my shadow silhouetted in the dust and smoke of the venue over the audience. I’ve never seen that before. Magical India. Namaste.”
All the fans immediately pointed out that the picture clicked by Adams depicts less of India and more of its smog. Delhi is considered as one of the most polluted cities in the world. According to the World Health Organisation, the quality of Delhi’s air is going down with the passage of time.
Adams said, “We have been coming here (to India) since 1994. It’s taken long and I’ve always asked our promoters, ‘where is my Delhi show’?” He went on to say, “I have all kinds of songs for you tonight, old ones, a few new ones, I’m not sure how much time you have but we have a long show ahead! Tonight we have the biggest party in India.”
The pollution season usually starts by the time of October as slower winds and cooler temperatures trap pollutants closer to the ground.
However, the month of June 2018 was considered very unhealthy in terms of air quality as the Government of India recorded the concentrations of 999 ppm which is the highest measurement.
