Taj in trou­ble

Down to Earth - - EDITOR’S PAGE - Fol­low Us: @down2earth­in­dia @dtemagazine

The Supreme Court has pulled up the Cen­tre, the Ut­tar Pradesh gov­ern­ment and the Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey of In­dia for their "lethargy" in tak­ing steps to pro­tect the iconic Taj Ma­hal. In Shadow over Taj (1-15 May, 2015), Down To Earth ob­served, "There is no doubt that pol­lu­tion - acidic for­ma­tions from sul­phur and ni­tro­gen ox­ide par­ti­cles or soot from black and or­ganic car­bon par­ti­cles-will take a toll on the mon­u­ment. How much and how se­ri­ous can be de­bated."
