    Pollution's effect on nostrils and lungs is apparent but it's effect on human mind is occult and very harmful and so on heart as well...! (Report) Reply

    (smoke+ fog) ... lovely haiku and i appreciate your concern for young lungs
    and nature.

    almost felled down...
    gone...sure nature will fight back
    with epidemics, natural calamities..
