First of All, We are an Entertainment Website, focused on “how to entertain our visitors with interesting Topics”. But We also have something like “we share what we think should be shared and what would be useful for our visitors” in our about page. This post is kinda collected resource and from our end we are really worried about those issue, and think those should be solved in a real time.
Yeah India is a great country, one of the biggest on this planet, developing itself so fast. But every action has a positive and negative reaction. As an entertainment website, we have shared funny posts about India, like Smart things only The Indians can Do. But today A moments ago, a post shared by National Geographic caught my eye. A photographer of them named Matthieu Paley recently visited the capital of India, Delhi and captured some photos which will give you a 440 volt Shock. Let us share some of his works.

Women search the Ghazipur dump in Delhi for metal they can redeem for money. On a good day, a recycler can make up to 1,000 rupees, the equivalent of $15.
Children also act as recyclers, searching the polluted Yamuna River for religious items tossed in from bridges above. The objects, ranging from coins to small metal statues, can then be given to recycling shops for money.
Diseases such as dengue fever are a threat for those who live along the polluted river and open sewers. Here, a man sleeps under a mosquito net as a safety measure.

Delhi residents bathe and drink from the steps of the Nizamuddin Sufi shrine in Delhi. These steps used to be the spot where people would collect freshwater, but it’s now just as polluted as any other water source in the city.
