Pollution poses one of the greatest challenges in India. There are various types of pollution, to state a few, air pollution, water pollution and noise pollution. These are all having ill effects on humanity such as TB, lung cancer due to inhaling cigarette smokers, etc. Noise pollution causes hearing imparment. It is due to horn sounds. Water pollution is like a slow poison to human beings and animals.Let me now discuss each of the pollution in detail.
Air pollution is caused by the emission of carbon dioxide from the running vehicles. It is also caused by the effect of emission of smoke generated by big factories. For instance, cement manufacturing companies. There is no other way of producing cements without polluting the air. Even though such companies argues they use high tech filters, we have to be aware at least 25% of pollution is caused by them. The vulnerable group of workers without knowing their status of health because of emission of chemicals, they work with their mouth shut. They fall prey to such chemicals to feed their families. Because of the bad effect of the air pollution, some companies are giving Horlicks to its workers which must be appreciated.
More plants and tress are the need of the hour
Planting of more plants and trees are vital at this stage as people will be able to get pure oxygen. Traffic policemen should be provided a mask. So that he doesn’t have to inhale polluted air and also medical checkups unnecessarily. Twice a year medical checkup should be encouraged.
Most of the poor hearing problems arise because of noise pollution. Usually, we come across this pollution in market area and other places like Bazaar where the sound speakers are set up during the festival. Even when we travel in a busy area, the noise pollution is high. We don’t have to say about the traffic jams where traffic policemen are shouting. It creates mental stress for both common man and traffic policemen.
Water pollution or water contamination
Water pollution happens everywhere. In cities, it is caused because of the manufacturing factories throwing the wastes on the river. While in villages, they take their animals such as goats and cows to bathe on the lakes and even humans bathe there. They drink this water too which is utter foolishness.
Village people must be educated and the companies should shift their companies where there is no river or lake.
Any type of pollution can be avoided if proper measures are taken by the authorities before in hand. Big company owners and the politicians must put themselves in the shoes of the lower middle class and poor people. If they do this our country. India will become a pollution free nation.
