They probably should cancel that HM. Not healthy for anyone to do that event. Wonder if they will all be wearing masks to at least filter out some of the particulates and I doubt anyone will have a record time for themselves.

I often call out HMs to avoid but this one is worse than any I've ever done: Air quality in New Delhi is very unhealthy. Not only doctors have advised against running the HM but even the sponsor is considering backing out due to the air quality.

Quote:

“Air pollution poses serious health risks and it is important that these concerns are addressed urgently and appropriately by the authorities for Airtel to continue associating with the event next year and beyond,” Airtel said in a statement (via Bloomberg).

Organizers of the event, a group called Procam International, meanwhile, have no plans to cancel, despite being “conscious that the state of air quality is not conducive.”
