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 …

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 plant…

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?

Badkhal Flyover to Ankhir Chowk

Currently these days so many trees are being cut on the green belt adjacent to road between Badkhal Flyover to Ankhir Chowk, probably the road is being converted from two lane to four lane and a another two land flyover may be constructed in coming near future joining the existing flyover which connects with National Highway-2 Mathura Road. Construction of new road will ease down the traffic problem and increase pace of development but Hundreds of trees has been cut down for the above mentioned purpose on the One Kilometer green belt area .  Important questions regarding environment which arises are :- 1. How the environment will be compensated? 2. Does any other location has been identified where the trees will be planted against the trees cut down? 3. What budget has been allocated for the new trees to be planted? 4. What timeline has been made. I don't think that anything out of above mentioned questions has been done but is it possible to access these information using RTI. What ar…

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.

Pepsi accused of over extraction of groundwater - India - The Times of India

As per the news on Times of India website the state government of kerala has made a report regarding over extraction of ground water by Pepsi at its plant in Kerala. It is good that now the state government is reviewing the working of Pepsi Plant for over extraction of ground water. But the response of company to media is that is using innovative recycling and recharging techniques to save water and brought down the usage by 60% in last few years. Also the company has received environment and water management awards.



I would only say that company should be allowed to operate but must be on the strict norms that it will invest its resources for recharge of water not only in plant but also in surrounding areas of plant. The performance and result must be verified at regular intervals. Also Pepsi should try to spread awareness in that area for improve of environment and provide funds to the local NGO's and start some project to increase ground water levels.

Mining in Aravali Hills

Today I read a news in Hindustan Times about Partial Mining Lease in Aravali Hills okayed by Haryana government in Faridabad and Palwal area. Lease will be given to Private players for a period of 7 to 10 years. and the same may be extended to Gurgaon including Mewat area after Supreme Court permission.



I just want to say when mining will start it will definitely affect our environment so did the government had made some provision/plan/guidelines to save environment or the exercise which will be carried out for calculating the impact on nature/environment and how the same will be cured. I think heavy environment taxes must be imposed so that environment tax money can be used for planting of trees, re-originating natural water resources, giving re-birth to wildlife etc.

Moreover as we all know that all the parties involved in mining for this area are powerful peoples (politicians/bureaucrats/corporate) and these all have the knowledge about means & ways for illegal mining, I mean…
