Delhi: The City of Loot

Looters who thought that they can destroy India and enjoy cool retired life in Delhi are now choking. They blame cars, they blame Diwali crackers, but actually they are choking on their loot.

There is no solution to Delhi’s pollution.

As cooking gas cylinders have reached villages, people now in the villages may not see the smoke. But those of us who grew up in North Indian villages till the 1980s can easily recall the smoke, thick smoke, that hung over the village, and visible to anybody approaching it, in the evenings of December and January.

The living organisms from a single cell to complex Homo Sapienspollute” their surroundings just by being alive. But the surroundings have the power to restore themselves. The wind blows and the foul air gets replaced by fresh air. River flows and self-cleanses.

Matter has been made worse by the fact that Delhi is located at the edge of a desert that practically extends to Sahara.

But both, the wind and the flowing water, have a certain self-cleansing capacity. Pollutants exceeding this limit overwhelm wind and flowing water.

In winter months, the earth is colder and so is air in contact with it. So, it doesn’t rise, and so doesn’t blow. So smoke generated by Homo Sapiens stays longer.

Cities enable the division of labour, and therefore they always grow. But the division of labor also needs trade, and trade by the shipping is the cheapest. Therefore big cities all over the world tend to be on the sea coast or close to big water bodies or large rivers.
Before Independence, our biggest cities were coastal cities. Coastal cities have always fast blowing winds.

The Brits left in 1947, and the charlatans of the Left took over. India of interiors started turning uninhabitable, unliveable. But the looters lived in Delhi because it was the capital. They had to keep its law and order and other services running, for their own sake. Businesses need rule of law and safety, so they also started converging on Delhi. As the jobs moved to Delhi, it started growing. That created even more jobs, so it grew even more, and faster.

Cities grow on the coasts. Not inland.

Wind lost its capacity to supply fresh air to Delhi. The wind got overwhelmed by the looting windbags.

Delhi had no business to grow this large. And had Indian ruling elite been honest and economically literate, Delhi would have never grown to this size. Cities grow on the coasts. Not inland. If the country is governed well. Otherwise, everybody tries to huddle close to the guards of the looting elite. At least it is safe there.

There is no solution to Delhi’s pollution. Let the thugs choke, quicker. Maybe then we will be economically set free, and our taxes will be used to create the rule of law all over India.

  1. Please attribute these views to the right individual. By saying its the opinion of “Team PGurus” you are giving it a cloak of secrecy. To the point of New Delhi – nothing is wrong in a non coastal big city. The imperial capital of India was no exception. Atlanta, Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Dallas, Peking etc are other examples of large cities that have expanded in the hinterland away from coasts. The real problem of India is that all the provincial capitals such as Bombay, Madras, Hyderabad, Lucknow etc have grown so big and become unorganized because of black money funding the real estate sectors in these otherwise well planned cities.

  2. Looting is illegal, if anyone has done any illegality, one should get punished. This is the wrath of nature & inescapable punishment. Nature’s wrath cannot be controlled by humans & if this is the punishment, so be it. Good luck
