Neighborhood Trees Becoming Things of the Past
by Ritu Sharma Bookmark and Share
New Delhi
Trees once extended a leafy canopy over 19-year-old Shruti Verma, protecting her from the summer sun as she waited for a bus near the Talkatora stadium to take her to college.

But this summer she had to stand under the blazing sun. "I even fainted once because of dehydration and heat," Verma said.

The trees at her bus stop were among the more than 32,000 cut down over the last few years to implement the capital's metro and transportation projects.
