So AAP's Odd-Even policy to tackle Delhi's ever-increasing pollution can be considered a success. Right?

Well pollution levels did reduce. So did traffic. Fewer murderous drivers were on the road at any given time. So, great.

The fallout wasn't all pollution and traffic-related, though. The policy gave rise to truckloads of criticism, support, carpoolers, random conversations, experimental cab services, new business ideas, good bitching, bad bitching, easy breathing.

And, bonus. these sketches!

Meet Deanne Fernandes, a Delhi-based designer and the author of this creative output that puts a witty spin on the #OddEvenPolicy.

She was meant to do some hand-lettering pieces anyway, Deanne told Catch. Then the policy happened and it seemed a good place to draw inspiration from. She asked herself what carpoolers, women drivers and others would be thinking during those two weeks.

The answer? In the skilful sketches above. #NothingOddAboutIt.
