Delhi's air quality index (AQI) is still considered to be "very poor." When smoke, dust, and winter fog come together, they form a smog cloud that reduces visibility and raises health hazards. As the pollution in Delhi and the neighbouring areas worsens, mocking memes have taken over social media at this time.

Businesses are embracing social media to display their ability by making memes and one-liners with creative punchlines, while irate people use the medium to express their displeasure. The most recent one was released by the online meal ordering service Zomato, which included a hilarious meme.

On November 7, the meal delivery service Zomato used Twitter to send a message criticising Delhi's air pollution. Due to the air pollution, Zomato apologised to residents of Delhi-NCR for the smoky flavour that would emerge from their order of "chicken." Sorry Delhi-NCR, our chat support can't assist if your chicken is delivered as smoked chicken, it said in the tweet.
