TREE PLANTATION VERSUS FIRE CRACKERS ON DIWALI


TREE PLANTATION VERSUS FIRE CRACKERS ON DIWALI

Image result for diwali firecrackers



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.  

Increasing Population Is A Problem for Humanity and our Planet

With respect to change in our lifestyle today we mainly blame the degrading quality of life everyday because of increased busyness, more & more stress, rising health problems in young age and many more daily routine issues. The average age of human beings had decreased in last many decades. The unhealthy life style, eating habit, shortage & unavailability of nutritious food is a big reason behind it. The quality living is very costly and not affordable for many of us. The increased use of chemicals, pesticides in all eatables and daily consumables items has increasing the problem by each passing day.

What is the reason behind this, definitely the increasing demand and decreasing supply? Due to increased demand many social problems take births like starvation, less food, less cloths, less homes and scarcity of basic needs of life for peoples and in search of solution of above problems human beings use natural items which are decreasing at a very fast rate and the only solutions seems to be the population control, it is the biggest problem for which whole world, researchers, scientist, social organizations, different country governments, political leaders etc. are seeking solution. They are trying to solve these problems through various means and ways which ultimately depend on natural resources. Today we don’t want to maintain the things required in our daily life but just use them and throw them, popularly known as USE AND THROW concept.

The usage and maintenance concept of everything has gone and now the time is for USE AND THROW which leads to exhausting of natural resources at a speed which can’t be expressed in words.

In view of above problems if human beings are not aware and no steps are taken for correction of our wrong activities soon the human beings existence on this planet will be a story of history.

TAKE CARE OF PLANTATION

Every Year all over the world lakhs of tree plantations are done and many programmes / functions / seminars and other activities carried out by Government and Non Government organisations to spread awareness about environment and increase plantation. The important questions is how many trees / plants survive out of total plantations and what are the reasons behind the non - survival. One of the important reason is total negligence of their after take care or in simple words just plant a tree and forget it. It seems that tree plantations programme is organised only for the purpose of pump and how. Just have some photographs while planting a tree, circulate it in media, gain some popularity BUT NO ARRANGEMENT FOR TAKE CARE OF THE PLANTATION DONE. It is not important to do so many tasks with half heart but do one task with full energy and complete it. In other words instead of spending thousand crores on plantations a part of above funds may be kept and spent on take care of trees planted.

Their must be some kind of analysis / report / survey and accountability must be fixed that who is responsible for DEATH OF PLANTED TREES.

If today we will not save trees tomorrow we will be not able to live on this planet our mother EARTH. Already we have lost many good things which we got from trees due to cutting of forest and development race. Many ayurvedic medicines, fruits, flowers, strong wood is not available today because these things died with DEATH OF TREES of above species. 

Now slogan of SAVE TREES, PLANT TREES needs to be updated and expanded to SAVE TREES, PLANT TREES, TAKE CARE OF PLANTATION.

Thank you to all the readers for going through above article.

Please come forward to give more ideas to implement and solve the above mentioned problem. 

TREES

Trees are important part of our environment, culture and for our life. In our country India we offer prayers to many trees like banayan, pipal etc. but in past few decades due to effect of western culture we not only stopped offering prayers but the focus of society for plantation program is on trees which grows faster and have been brought to India from western culture. For banayan, pipal, neem and other Indian trees are not only best for long time as they give too much to us in the form of life, shadow, coolness, etc. Neem is the best antibiotic tree commonly available in neighborhood when we are child. Pipal is a common tree found in every temple and people offer water it regularly. Nimboli of neem and barbantas of banayan are still alive in my memories. Here I request the Indian government to save Indian culture government must start planting these trees in government schools, colleges and other plantation programmes. So many initiatives to save environment is being taken and plantation of indian trees must be part of the government agenda. Too much of blank land exist in green belts, government schools, colleges, universities, government offices, hospitals where many programmes are organized for plantation programmes. Government nurseries must start development of new breed of above mentioned trees which offer some commercial benefit also to the peoples and grows faster so that common peoples automatically motivated towards the planation of these trees. Trees are part of our culture, we must save our culture. We must teach our children’s importance of these trees on environment day and take them towards our Rich Indian culture.
 At last SAVE TREES, PLANT TREES HAVING LONG LIFE, SAVE CULTURE.

CLIMATE CHANGE



Now November has started and cold air waves of winters are flowing in morning and evening. Temperature is decreasing slowly with every passing day. Generally our senior citizens say that in the era of 80’s when they are young winters starts early in the month of October and by November environment change completely. Fans are switched off in August end or in 1st week of September only. Windows are cover in October. Full warm clothes are in use by everybody in November. Even some senior citizens say that they use blankets when watching RAMLEELA  and warm up themselves by burning fire while returning home after the show. As per my childhood memories we never used FAN on Diwali and used to buy new warm clothes like sweater, cap, socks before diwali as shoping of Diwali. Also in winters now air is more polluted because increased moisture in air which leads to intermixing of dust particles with pollution and these heavy particles remains  at low levels in air causing diseases problem of eyes, nose and throat. Asthma patient really has big problem during this type of weather.
Winters come late, ends early because climate is changing with every passing decade. Reasons of climate change are known to all of us and we all are responsible for this. The problem and its solution are in our own hands. We must try to use more public conveyance and must tries to secure green area of our cities and many other small steps needs to be taken to save environment otherwise we will lose the golden thing (our environment) and don’t have anything to give to our coming generations. SAVE ENVIRONMENT, SAVE EARTH.

Tragedy in Japan

The recent Earthquake and tsunami has totally damaged many cities of Japan and killed thousands of people. Due to this big earthquake and tsunami the Fukushima nuclear power plant safety measures has failed and radiation has spread in and around Fukushima Nuclear Plant.

This incident has clearly raised big question over energy from Nuclear Sources. In some news it is also mentioned that some data related to safety measures of reactors changed/compromised way back in 1985 so now to stop future recurrence of this type of nuclear tragedy secrecy over nuclear reactors must be reduced and international audit of nuclear plants all over the world must be carried out in view of Japan Tragedy.

Moreover whole world must come forward to help the Japan at this crisis movement. The safety of human beings is the top most priority of any initiative.



It is a reminder from nature to Humans that we should make ourself environment friendly otherwise unnecessary exploitation of nature will yield bad result. All the human creations are small in front of any natural disaster.

I pray to God to help and give courage to the peoples of Japan during this tragedy.

Modernisation Versus Environment

Today in the race of modernization against already developed countries of the world India as a nation is busy in building roads, bridges, buildings means concrete jungle and damaging its environment like anything.

Whenever we made any road we cut lots of trees and cut our hills for road construction material means double damage to environment and never plans how to compensate that loss so policy should be made that whenever anybody cuts one tree another tree is planed against the same.

Also when we made flyover we cut road side trees and drill the earth to raise the pillars for flyover again two sided attack on environment so our engineers must try to find out the designs which are environment friendly and have space for greenery consisting of not only flowers and plants but for trees also.

During the creation new residential colonies and sector by government also many of agricultural land is compromised instead of developing residential area on non-agricultural land.

I think government should impose a environment tax on the lines of education surcharge.
