This article provides information how Indian cities were caught by Haze.

Haze

Haze is a situation where the sky is not clear and near by objects are not visible easily. Haze may be caused due to variety of factors such as dust, smoke, polluted air, air particles, fog, smog and much more.

Indian cities

Indian cities were recently caught by a Haze. Yes, the atmosphere was very hazy and we could not even see building opposite to us, which were easily visible on any other day. Haze was seen in the past few days in many Indian cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Jaipur and many other cities.

Cause

The cause of haze is still not confirmed. There are different reports providing the reason for such a haze. Some say it is due to dusty storm in the Indian desert state of Rajasthan. However, some say it is due to dusty storm in the Arab deserts. The Haze may have come from Arab, travelling to Arabian sea and then venturing to Mumbai. Or travelling from Arab and then going to Karrachi through Arabian sea and ultimately to Indian cities (including Mumbai).

Situtation

The situtation was very scary. No one was aware that what the specific reason was. There was no news channel showing the exact reason of such a hazy atmosphere, until the next day. People were afraid in general. Some thought it may be due to the nearby construction activity. However, there was rumors that it was due to the recent earthquake in Mexico. However, everything was speculated, the real reason, no body was aware.

Effect

People's health was affected during these hazy days, particularly among the people who are suffering from respiratory diseases like Aasthma.
