Diwali Crackers Ban, Air Pollution and Great smog of Delhi

Hello, guys, I hope you all are doing well, it has been a long time when I am writing a recent blog without wasting your time let's move to the point.




I know I am late, as we all know Supreme court delivered a Judgement on October 9 that selling of fireworks will be banned in Delhi NCR region till November 1.

As I've been living in Delhi NCR for last 5 years so I know very well, How much polluted it is? and what happened on the day after Diwali?, I think I should focus on unbiased views so first of all let's know some shocking figures of Delhi NCR-


  • Delhi, a 6th most populated metropolis in the world, the ranking goes to 2nd if NCR region is included and unfortunately one of the most heavily polluted cities in India.

  • NCR residents are losing out on almost 6 years of life because of the dangerous air pollution levels.

  • according to the WHO. In Delhi, inadequate quality air damages irreversibly the lungs of 2.2 million or 50 percent of all children.

  • In November 2016, in an event known as the Great Smog of Delhi, the air pollution spiked far beyond acceptable levels. Levels of PM2.5 and PM 10 particulate matter hit 999 micrograms per cubic meter, while the safe limits for those pollutants are 60 and 100 respectively.

I hope now many of you have got some valid reasons why selling of crackers has been banned in Delhi NCR, I am not here to give any biased opinion so let’s move to other factors which show that Deepawali crackers bursting is not the only responsible, there are many other factors are the reason behind the Air Pollution Level of NCR, here one by one I am going to discuss those points below: -

Major Reasons-


  • Industrial Areas of Delhi NCR – Air Pollution in Delhi is caused mainly by industry, as I found Patparganj, Wazipur Industrial Area, Rajasthani Udyog Nagar, are some heavy industrialized areas of Delhi which release the heavy wastes and pollutants.




 


  • Vehicular Emissions: - This is the saddest reality of Metro Cities people want to live luxurious life, no one wants to prefer public transport result of it, vehicular emissions contribute to 63% of the Air pollution in Delhi, there are 7* millions of cars in Delhi and 1400 new ones are added to the count every day after reading this figure you could imagine the horrible future of Delhi NCR.

    data-ad-slot="8314948495">


  • Over Population: - A line is known about Delhi is “The city is stretched beyond its means.” According to a report, in 2014, Delhi was the second most populated city in the world. This is eye-opening fact is enough to answer every question, why Delhi is over polluted?

Some other common Factors: -


  • Air Conditions

  • Burning of Paddy fields in Haryana and Punjab

  • Smoking

  • Deforestation



I hope after reading these factors, you could predict that One day of bursting cracker is not the only reason of over pollution.




Now I would like to ask some questions which are striking in my confused mind: -


  • Why cracker ban on Deepawali only? I think bursting crackers on Eid, New Year, Christmas should be banned (Sorry If you find me wrong but this is logical) even cracker bursting should be banned on every celebration either it is a wedding celebration or a cricket celebration.

  • Why can’t we prefer public transport once/twice a month? Why can’t they shut down their AC/Heavy Machines once/twice a month?

  • I know we don’t afraid of death, but can we quit smoking for Future sake?

  • Can we start making small efforts by plant roping?



So, I am not here supporting cracker bursting on Deepawali, Even I am not bursting crackers for last 5 years. But I believe in unbiased mentality so please stop blaming only Deepawali Celebration. Yes, crackers shouldn’t be banned on Deepawali but should be banned forever if our city is already over polluted.

That’s all about my straightforward thoughts.

Thanks for reading and giving your valuable time, Happy Deepawali! I am not here to become a philosopher so don’t care about my critic thoughts, especially for parents, let your children do, whatever they want to do on this Deepawali, don’t stop them to burn fireworks until you quit smoking, or until you start applying the precautions to save this environment. (Sorry again I became a criticizer)







Wish you all very happy and prosperous Deepawali.

Love You all.

Thanks!

Scientific reasons behind Hindu Rituals

Hinduism is the world’s oldest living religion and there are thousands of customs & traditions. Most of us really don’t know what is the scientific reason behind them even we have no idea about it.

1- Blowing Shankha(Conch shell) - In Hinduism, According to our ancient scriptures that Puranas, the shank originated during the Churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthan) by the Deities and Shri Vishnu held it in the form of weapon. As per a holy verse which is regularly chanted during the puja ritual it is mentioned that by the command of Shri Vishnu the deities Moon, Sun and Varun are stationed at the base of the shank, the deity Prajapati on its surface and all the places of pilgrimage like Ganga and Saraswati in its front part.

We blownShankha before starting any religious event even some of the people blown it every day during their regular prayer.

प्रेम पत्र २(पत्र का जवाब)

जैसा आपने पिछले पत्र में पढा था कि प्रेमिका रूठकर व्यंगपूर्ण पत्र लिखती है और जब यह पत्र उसके प्रेमी को मिलता है तो वो अपनी प्रेमिका को मनाने और भरोसा दिलाने के मकसद से पत्र का प्रेमपूर्ण जवाब लिखता है मगर मस्तिष्क में चलते गणित के कारण कैसे उसके विचार पत्र के माध्यम से निकलते हैं पढ़िए -

प्रेमी  अपनी प्रेमिका से -

प्रेमिका मेरी ओ प्राण प्यारी!

तुम्हे एक पल हृदय से ना दूर किया है ,

तुम्हारा और मेरा संग तो रसायन विज्ञान में जल बनाने की प्रक्रिया है !

जैसे हाइड्रोजन नहीं छोड़ सकती ऑक्सीजन का संग,

भगवान ने ऐसा रचा है ,हमारा प्रेम प्रसंग|





दुविधा सुनो मेरा क्या हाल हुआ है,

पूरा समय गति के समीकरणों में उलझ गया है !

कभी बल लगाकर पढ़ाई की दिशा में बढ़ता हूँ,

कभी तुम्हारे प्रेम की क्रिया प्रतिक्रिया से पीछे तुम्हारी दिशा में खींचता हूँ|



मेरे विचारों का पाई ग्राफ उलझ जाता है ,

ये Tan@  के मान की तरह कभी ऋणात्मक अनंत तो कभी धनात्मक अनंत तक जाता है !

मेरे ग्राफ रूपी जीवन में सारे मान अस्थिर हैं ,

मगर तुम्हर स्थान मेरे हृदय में पाई(π) …

पथ भ्रष्ट हैं इसलिए कष्ट हैं

क्यों पस्त हैं, क्या कष्ट है? किस अंधेर का आसक्त है। क्यों पस्त है कुछ बोल तू, अगर कष्ट में तो बोल तू, क्यों लड़ रहा हूं खुद से ही, ज़ुबान है तेरी भी, खोल तू।
क्यों भ्रष्ट हैं, वो मस्त हैं, वो निगल रहे हैं सारा देश! हम कष्ट में, पथ भ्रष्ट हैं, नहीं बच रहा है कुछ भी शेष। वो भ्रष्ट हैं क्योंकि हम कष्ट में, वो मस्त हैं क्योंकि ख़ुद हम भ्रष्ट हैं।
जो सख़्त हैं वो लड़ रहे हैं, जो कष्ट में भी बढ़ रहे हैं! जो कष्ट में भी सख़्त हैं, जो सख़्त हैं, वो समृद्ध हैं। क्यों हतप्रभ है, किसी समृद्ध से, तेरे भी हस्त हैं, चला इन्हें शस्त्र से! तेरे पास वक़्त है, तेरे पास शस्त्र हैं, फ़िर क्यों तू स्तब्ध है, यूं कष्ट में?
क्यों निर्वस्त्र है अगर वस्त्र हैं, क्यों चल रहा ये नग्न भेष, अगर निर्वस्त्र ज्यादा सभ्य है, तो मत कहो कि मानव है विशेष। कहो जीव सारे सभ्य हैं, वो सब भी तो निर्वस्त्र हैं| सब निर्वस्त्र ही समृद्ध थे, तो कोई लाया ही क्यों ये वस्त्र है। अब ये वस्त्र हैं तो बढ़ा कष्ट है, कोई सभ्य है तो कोई निर्वस्त्र है।
कुछ कटु सत्य हैं, जो कहीं लुप्त हैं, सही वक्तव्य हैं जो अभी गुप्त हैं। ना कुछ लुप्त ह…
