Human and Environment , these to words go together. Alterations to any one of these can be a threat to our planet Earth. Nature has warned us in many different ways to stop making the environment from worse to worst. Hence , to control the situation,we have to use more eco friendly products in our day to day life. This way we can give our coming generations a good environment to breathe.

North Indian States under the blanket of dust

Once again, the skies of North Indian States like Delhi , Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan are completely covered with thick layer of smoke , dust and harmful chemicals. A public advisiory has been issued by the deparment to avoid the health problems. People have been advised to stay at home and avoid outdoor activities.

It seems that the nature is giving us  alarm that its a time change the way we are spoiling our nature. All this is a result of deforestation and an over use of vehicles though dust storms in the neighbouring state Rajasthan may be one of the reasons.

This may be a situation for a day or two but what about in the near future. This is happening second time when the air quality has been fallen so badly. I remember the last time when the sky of these states were covered with smog ! Even NASA noticed the same through its Report.

Even WHO report , near about more than 90% people of world are breathing in the air which is not good for their health and exceeds the limit of air quality index according to WHO.

The Air Quality Index has crossed all its limits as it has reached to maximum limit of 500 in Delhi while around 446 in Ludhiana ,a state of Punjab. You can understand this AQI values by the given table:

The associated health problems as per this AQI range (401-500)  are-

It may cause many respiratory problems and serious health impacts on heart and lungs. A little breathing discomport to sensitive people like children , older adults and people with heart diseases. 

Hence one should avoid doing long exposure to this kind of environment and if neccessary, wear mask to protect themselves.

Talking about Ludhiana, According to Punjab Agricultural University, ThE AQI is 446 which includes PM10 as a main pollutant.This can be dust, smoke , mist or any inhalable or respirable particles which can be drawn deep into the lungs and cause breathing problems and irritation in eyes,nose and throat.

This shows the levels of different pollutants in the city :

North Indian states, air pollution

The condition is worse in the Capital, where government had to suspend all the construction work giong in the state.See AQI of different areas of Delhi.

This is really unfortunate that we are still not adopting the habits that leads to the protection of our enviroment. In the coming days we will be more prone such natural disasters and that time situation will be out of control.

Think before it is too late !

( Since yesterday,the sky here is full of dust and the weather is too bad that I can’t even tell my kids to play outside nor I can go for a walk and this is going to persist for two more days )

Evening 4:30 pm

Winter has just begun
What is this in the sky ?
Fog…no it’s smog

Causing burning of eyes
My chest is choked
Skin rashes it has caused

Thinking to wear a mask
As I have to go out
Is it Year 2017 ?, I doubt

The monster of smog
Has engulfed my city
Am I be able to survive?

I am dubious about future…

God so merciful
Hears everyone

He sent for us
Showers of rain

To bring us out
From that cloud of hell

Now I can breathe
And see His beautiful world

Thank you my Lord
My merciful Lord
