This time of the year, it's less of smog and more of fog, that smog is caused by stubble burning, and that stubble is burned because it is not usable, and it is not usable because of the combine harvester which renders the stubble unusable and as a result this is burned, prior to the combine harvester there was only fog and no smog. None of the so called experts cited in this article are aware of this basic fact..

Winter fog has been a regular feature in the subcontinent for centuries.

Smog is a relatively recent occurrence and its only in the last 15 years or so that smog has been regularly observed.
