A thick blanket of smoke is seen against the setting sun as young ragpickers search for reusable material at a garbage dump in New Delhi, India, Friday, Oct. 17, 2014. India launched the Air Quality Index Friday to measure air quality across the nation that is home to some of the most polluted cities in the world.
