Queen of Hills Shimla

Queen of Hills, Shimla a famous tourist place / hill station especially during the summers situated at an altitude of 2128 meters known for its good cool environment is facing the slap of global warming. Recently I read on website of some news site probably times of India or Hindustan times that first time in history of Shimla summer vacation in government schools of Shimla has been announced for few days due to rise in mercury level which is around 30° Celsius, five degree above normal. Even private institutions have been advised to declare summer holidays. Peoples are advised to stay indoors during afternoon. Lack of Pre-monsoon showers have increased the temperature and heat waves and the farmers of Shimla is also under threat due to changing environment and loss of crops may be seen in near future. Some Old peoples say that two-three decades back even during the month of June they wear some warm clothes but now the climate is totally changed and people wear summer clothes. In changing scenario cooling systems, fans and Air conditioners are must now a days in this beautiful city.

Famous resorts around Shimla like Narkanda, Kufri, Kasauli, Manali, Dharamsala, Palampur, Chamba and Dalhousie also facing heat waves and temperature is above normal as per Metrological department. Meteorological department also reports that minimum and maximum temperature remains above average throughout the year clearly indicating that hills are warming up. If hills will warm up, glaciers will decline and sea water level increase and environment cycle will totally damaged means the destruction of our planet and ends of humans. We are clearly moving very fast towards destruction.

Experts says that environment of Shimla has changed due to global warming, deforestation on large scale and rise in pollution.

Government of Himachal Pradesh must start implementing the steps on very fast track basis to increase awareness, making laws, rules & regulations to save their capital. NGO's must start some programmes in small villages around Shimla for starting environment friendly activities. On Individual level anyone who is living in and around Shimala must stop every activity which affects climate and I request all the tourists to be friendly with environment so that the coming next generations can enjoy their trips to the Queen of Hills.

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.

Let’s spread this message to everyone.

Environmental Changes

Due to heavy raining flood in Bihar, Assam and Orissa many peoples are dead and lakhs of peoples gets displaced while crops on lacs of hectare submerged in flood water and it is hard to estimate the loss of other assets. It is all result of wrong steps like industrialization, Cutting forests on large scale, etc. which affects the environment of our planet ‘Earth’ and we all knows about Global Warming. Even if you want to analyze, see the Mt. Everest picture of 1970 and see the picture of today, you will immediately feel the change. If we continue to play with the nature & environment of our planet it will become a danger for human beings.

 

Every individual should put his effort to improve the environment.

 

Please send me the ways how the rain water can be used so that no flood occurs and our environment did not gets affected.
