Environment Pollution in INDIA

Environmental Pollution is the biggest menace to the human race on this planet today. It means adding impurity to environment. The environment consists of earth, water, air, planets and animals, if we pollute them, then the existence of man and nature will be hampered.

It is true that trees are being cut down rapidly. Our earth is becoming warmer. If pollution continues, the day is not far when our earth will be a boiling pan and becomes a desert or it will be covered with sea water causing destruction of mankind. Pure air is always needed for inhaling. If we take pure air, our health improves. On the other hand impure air causes disease and impairs our health and causes our death. Smoke pollutes the air. It is the root of air pollution. The smoke which is discharged from industries, automobiles and kitchens is the mixture of carbon dioxide, methane etc. These are all poisonous gases.

These cause lung cancer, tuber-culosis etc. Which take a heavy toll of life. The glaring incident is the Bhopal Gas tragedy in December 1984. Thousands of the residents of Bhopal died due to lungs problem which was caused by Methy Isocynide gas from the Union Carbide Plant.

The garbage emitting foul smell, the decaying plants and animals also cause air pollution Hence the doctors advice the patients having lungs trouble to settle in some rural places is pure and free from pollution. Then comes sound pollution.

The harsh sound of buses, mopeds etc. affect our power of hearing and causes fast trouble. It has been reported that there are two villages named Biraspalli and Devadas-Palli near Dum Dum Airport in Calcutta where a large number of people have lost their power of hearing. This is because of the frequent sound of plane coming in and going out of Dum Dum Airport. The evils of sound pollution can be imagined from this example.

The water of rivers and seas is being constantly polluted all over the world by various dangerous chemical biological wastes. Mills and factories discharge very harmful waste water into many river and sea. The water of the Ganges flowing by the side of both Varanasi and Calcutta is extremely polluted and contains all sets of dangerous bacteria. It is really very strong and laughable that large number  of the Indians regard this water as holy. They even drink this water for salvation. There is no doubt that the fish that grow in such waters are poisonous too. Reckless application of Chemical fertilizers insecticides and pesticides pollutes the soil. Vegetables and fruits are quite injurious today, because they contain the poison of insecticides and pesticides. If the air we breathe,the water we drink and the soil which producers ours crops, vegetables and fruits, all impure, then our chances of good health and longevity will be very less and less.

Environment pollution is a serious menace to our existence Realizing the danger, we must plant trees in large number to absorb impure air. Impure water from industries can be sent back for purification and then it can be used for irrigation purpose. Our government is well aware of the fact and is taking step to save environment from pollution. We have also ministry to look after the environment.
