CNN correspondent Charles Riley writes a personal account of living with Delhi’s horrible air pollution.

“I live in the world’s most polluted city. I also have asthma. I moved to New Delhi in October, to take up a new post with CNN. I had heard the warnings from colleagues and friends: The air in Delhi is bad, they said. Really bad. I mostly ignored them.
