Dust storms used to be common in Delhi and Punjab, I recall in the 80s and 90s.. but not so severe at times. Only once in 5-10 years you got a severe one where trees fells down, flower pots got displaced a few yards..

I remember one in Faridabad 1982. It took down a tree which was some 400 years old.

Re: So, what's up?

Now petrol / diesel prices are shooting up, INR going badly down against USD.

Petrol, diesel hit new lifetime highs on the 7th straight day of fuel price hikes

And RBI forex reserves down for 4th week straight, showing that even near these all-time lows, the INR has been propped up by RBI. Maybe 70+ is coming soon.

BTW, there are some 5 threads on Petrol prices. I for one have supported the 'market model' in that and there is no alternative to that. Cong was subsidizing petrol prices for a while and it was leading to Petroleum companies making huge losses. There will be many lifetime highs for petrol prices. When Indira Gandhi came back to power in 1980, petrol prices jumped from 3 rs to 5 rs a litre. That would also have been a lifetime high.
BTW, how much does a Kingfisher 650 ml bottle cost in Delhi nowadays?
