TREE PLANTATION VERSUS FIRE CRACKERS ON DIWALI

Deepawali or Diwali the festivals of light has come. Everyone will celebrate it in their own way. Old age or senior citizens will spoke to their counterparts and elders or matures will meet and exchange gifts, sweets with their relatives and friends. The youngsters will celebrate the festivals with shopping, party, bursting crackers and enjoying with their friends. Between all these things we forget about the waste generation in form of packing material, consumables and smoke generated due to bursting of fire crackers. The Hon’ble Supreme Court has fixed the timings for bursting of fire crackers, in addition to this I think that some kind of environment maintenance tax must b imposed on fire crackers so that the tax collected could be used for betterment of environment.

Also all of us should start a new trend of exchanging and planting a tree before or after Diwali at their garden or at some other location so that we make reimbursement to nature of our self part. The same may become a part of our culture and tradition so that the coming generation will start learning it from their childhood itself and planet earth will be safe for coming generation of humanity.  

Pollution Control

On Diwali at 2017 Hon’ble Supreme Court of India banned the sale of fire crackers to stop and control threatening levels of pollution. Some of us criticized the decision. Traders said it will cause heavy losses to them as they had already purchased material and ban is done at last moment. Some groups said that it is a strike on their religious faith. Hot discussions on social media are carried out in and against the ban. My personal view is that the money spent on fire crackers may be used for construction of charitable hospitals, schools, etc. which will be beneficial for society and nation. Also looking at current levels of rising levels of pollution due to smog that the little step (ban on sale of fire crackers) to control pollution is a right step. On last few years at every Diwali my father needs oxygen because of too much pollution but this year thankfully he did not needs to be given oxygen and is relaxed. Although now not only my father but we all feeling eyes burn and problem in breathing due to smog. Some serious action regarding parali must be taken on it to stop burning of parali.

If no action is taken then in coming 3-5 years the North India will have to stop its various activities during October – November. But to do anything in India just decision of courts is not a solution but political will, awareness among common man, technological solutions required.

It is also said that parali can be used in gatta factories for making of card board which may be a source of income for .


At last I will say that I support and honour initiatives and decision of the Hon’ble Court. 

Say No To Fire Crackers on Diwali

Diwali is coming and everyone has started planning and buying the gifts, cloths, cards, sweets and our young generations of teenagers, children's and even some well educated mature persons are very enthusiastic about bursting fire crackers. Bursting of fire crackers of hundred crores leads to much smoke, noise and other types of pollution. It even hurts and increase problems of patients admitted in hospitals and senior citizens who are generally have some type of allergy/disease due to age factors are increased. If the same amount of money is used for betterment of society it could be very useful.
By saying no to Fire Crackers we might not only reduce the high costs of buying and burning these crackers, but also reduce the expense incurred in the treatment and cure of asthma and other pollution related diseases including anxiety and heart problems. Should we not act reasonably and prove ourselves to be better citizens? Should we not make improved use of our education?
Yes their many peoples are employed with crackers industry but fire crackers manufacturers should come forward to make a crackers which specifies the limit of noise, size, smoke etc with regard to manufacturing of crackers.
Safety standard keeping in view the user safety must be also kept in mind . Moreover they should also try to invent how the bad impact of fire crackers on environment can be reversed and is it possible to recycle the waste produced by crackers. Although government have fixed 10:00 PM as the last time to burst crackers but government should also fix the standards for manufacturing of crackers.
At our own level we should come forward to SAY NO TO CRACKERS so that we can save environment and our  planet Earth (Our Mother) which has reached to critical dangerous stage right now due to global warming and rapidly increasing pollution levels.
We should celebrate our festivals with flowers, sweets and happiness. There are also many others methods through which we can celebrate our festivals.
Let’s spread this message to everyone.

Concrete Jungle

Recently I read posting of Mr. jamoos jhalla blog jhallevichar about Dhandi Sarak of Meerut which is losing its characterstic due to cutting of trees, too much concrete jungle and pollution but it is not a problem of Meerut only, but in many cities Where the good climate/environment condition have changed and declining every day. In my childhood I have listened from my elders that many fruit gardens, reservoirs exist in my home town Bhiwani but they have been converted into concrete jungle now. In my childhood where I have seen farms is now developed colonies/sectors. In last 10 years at Faridabad I have seen converting too much farming land into sectors/colonies/offices/institutions even in Forest Area at Aravali Hills which is protected under law. Many local vegetables/fruits which are very tasty and nutritious not available now because of human interference in the natural cycle. Now a days SEZ are acquiring more and more land but now some awareness have come and even in Times of India dated 6 June, 2009 there is a news that villagers denied & protested against Reliance SEZ in Maharashtra. Previously the land which is used for farming has been acquired by capitalist/builders and now they constructing flats/buildings/bunglows on them.

Sometime I feel that after five six decades we may not have any land for farming and we will be not able to produce any food for our own country peoples and will be dependent on other countries means we will finish our self dependency.

Suggest your views to save the local environment, culture etc. while keeping the pace of development.

Fire Crackers on Diwali

Fire crackers of hundred crores are burst on Diwali, leading to so much smoke, noise and other types of pollution. Further it creates and increase problems of patients admitted in hospitals and senior citizens who are generally have some type of allergy/disease due to age factors are increased. If the same amount of money is used for betterment of society it could be very useful.

 

I know that many peoples are employed with crackers industry but fire crackers manufacturers should come forward to make a policy which specifies the limit of noise, size, smoke etc with regard to manufacturing of crackers. Safety of the user must be also kept in mind as generally teenagers use them. Moreover they should also try to invent how the bad impact of fire crackers on environment can be reversed and is it possible to recycle the waste produced by crackers. Although government have fixed time in some cities for bursting of crackers but it should also fix the standards for manufacturing of crackers.

 

On the level of individual every one should come forward to SAY NO TO CRACKERS so that we can save environment of our planet Earth which has reached to critical dangerous stage right now due to global warming and rising pollution levels.

 

We should celebrate our festivals with flowers, sweets and happiness. There are also many others methods through which we can celebrate our festivals.
