Before Delhi winters came with pollution warnings and newspaper headlines urging citizens to stay indoors, people could enjoy clear blue skies and afternoon walks in the sun.

The video above is a nostalgic ode to the Delhi winter that once was. All the familiar tropes from the recent past are present – replaced in real life, alas, with masks and air-purifiers.

Titled A Forgotten Romance With Delhi Winters, the video does, however, suggest its makers, at least, are not giving up on Delhi just yet. Maybe, winters can go back to being what they once were. Some day.
