Attacks on Humanity both are guilty.

Recently Paris has seen deadly attack over it, in which about more than 150 people have been killed.  Act of violence have been condemned by every person of the Globe.  Author also believes that killing of innocent is not true spirit of any religion.   Earlier several countries are also involved in the bombarding in Iraq.   Killing of innocent is not the religion in any way.  But IS has justified that in France attack several innocent are killing in Iraq. Let international community should sit and find solution of problem.

After attack over France, Henery Clinton endorsed War against Iraq and urges to take revenge of the attack.  War cannot give peace, if she urges war against Syria or Iraq innocent Native of Iraq or Syria will be killed.    Who will be responsible behind the human soul?  Killing of innocent is not war.  What ever happened in France is of course should be condemned, but can any one behind it kill innocent citizens of Iraq.   Come out some sort of peaceful solution to stop crises in Iraq and Syria.  How many innocent will give their contribution in war, why the blood of innocent citizen will spread on roads? Why why why.

War in any form should be condemned whether on entire Gulf, Libya, Egypt Afghanistan or in the form of Drown attack in Pakistan. In Pakistan several innocent lost their life due to Drown attack.  Worst affected persons are the local native of the nation who is affected by war.  Merely in the name of terrorism the civilised countries are killing the local citizens.  Any of the civilised country has given any assurance that; in air strike only terrorist will be killed and no native will be killed.  Which is UNO Charter and none of the county can kill civilians merely on the name of war. America is the super power of the Globe, but it is also evident in any war several occasions local citizens are killed by American forces.  How long local people contribute their share of live to war.  

Dialog is the best way to reconcile the dispute whether it is IS or any of the organisations based on the terror ideology.   World community should come forward to speak the   representatives of terror organisations, what they want, what is their intention.  Now stop the killing of innocent citizens of the country.

No doubt ISIS is killing innocent citizens they should be dealt as per International law, and not by waging war against innocent persons.  In that sense both; world community and terrorists are equally responsible for war crimes and killing of innocent citizens.

Beware you are on the risk due to pollution.

21st century have big challenges for the country and across the Globe,  some outstanding challenges like Terrorism, Jihadism, inflation, rise in population, recession and pollution. We as a citizens of the country are less concerned towards pollution but concerned over the terrorist activities.  Like terror or Jihadis, pollution is also one of the big challenge across the globe, have little concerned and cause of worry for the citizens.

Let us discuss in detail about the pollution.......

What is pollution:

Pollution is the constant process of introduction of waste materials into the natural environment that cause adverse change. Any act of commission or omission by us which cause environment dirty is the Pollution.  We as a citizens doing many act due to negligence or lack of proper knowledge cause the environment dirty are come in the category of pollution.  Following categories of the pollution

Water Pollution
Air pollution (Noise)
Land pollution
Light pollution.

Water pollution is the major global problem increased due to industrial waste. Mercantile cities like Madrass, Bombay, Delhi, Calcutta in India are the big worry for the industries waste which releases by the Industries.  Near Kalyan the Ulhas river become the dirty water river due heavy industries waste released by the industries in Murbad and nearby areas.  Situation become worsened day by day ultimately Maharashtra Pollution Control Board Regional Office Kalyan issued a work order signed by Regional Officer Mr. B.P. Solunke in its work order number MPCB/ROK/TB-140217F70191 of dated 17/02/2014 in which clear line of action and instruction given to the JD (WPC) MPC Board Mumbai industrial waste for large scale industries and small scale industries and its control.  The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on 2 July 2015, ordered CPCB to ensure that Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) takes stringent action against polluting industries along Ulhas river and also asked Dombivili CETP, Ambernath CETP , Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation and Dombivali Corporation to deposit 70 crores with the Konkan District Commissioner for restoration and restitution measures. Read full text of this judgement by National Green Tribunal (Western Zone Bench, Pune) in the matter of Vanashakti Public Trust & Others Vs Maharashtra Pollution Control Board & Others dated 02/07/2015 regarding severe environmental and ecological damage due to illegal discharge of dangerous untreated effluents, sewage and pollutants in violation of environmental Laws in particular, Ulhas River in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

Another reason for the water pollution is increased by waste which we throw in the water due to that water contaminated and cause the water pollution.  India is the country of several religion and religion faiths gives heavy penalty to India as far as pollution is concerned. During the festivals of Ganesh, Durga idols are immerge in the river or sea. Due to paint and non eco friendly idols cause big worry for the water pollution.  In the cities like Delhi, Varanasi, Mumbai and all the big cities, animal wastes are the big cause of worry which cause rivers, lacks and sea contaminated.  Lather industries in the cities like Kanpur, Agra, Varanasi makes the River Ganga like a pond of dirty water. Toxic pollution affects more than 200 million people.

It has been suggested that water pollution is the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases, and that it accounts for the deaths of more than 14,000 people daily. An estimated 580 people in India die of water pollution related illness every day., and as of 2007, half a billion Chinese had no access to safe drinking water. In addition to the acute problems of water pollution in, also continue to struggle with pollution problems. For example, in the most recent national report on in the United States, 45 percent of assessed stream miles, 47% of assessed lake acres, and 32 percent of assessed and square miles were classified as polluted. The head of China's national development agency said in 2007 that one quarter the length of China's seven main rivers were so poisoned the water harmed the skin.

Water is typically referred to as polluted when it is impaired by contaminants and either does not support a human use, such as, or undergoes a marked shift in its ability to support its constituent biotic communities, such as fish. Natural phenomena such as,, storms, and earthquakes also cause major changes in water quality and the ecological status of water.
Another big reason for the environment pollution is the air pollution.  Air increased due to the immersion of industries fumes and smokes, sound, loudspeakers, firecrackers,  drum beating, vehicles horn and Aeroplanes.

Standard and guidelines for the commercial and residential areas.  The Central Pollution Control Board constituted a Committee on Noise Pollution Control. The Committee recommended noise standards for ambient air and for automobiles, domestic appliances and construction equipments, which were later notified in Environment(Protection) Rules, 1986 as given below:-


------------------------------------------------------------------------          Area Code    Category of Area          Limits in dB(A),Leq                                                   Day time      Night time
           A          Industrial area           75             70   
           B          Commercial area           65             55
           C          Residential area          55             45
           D          Silence Zone              50             40

Noise pollution increased from Vehicles, Industries, loudspeakers, Aeroplanes; apart from these all above the sound polluted increased due to excess firecrackers, loudspeakers, drum beating.  India is the country of faith and many religions.  There are several religions are exists.  Some social organisations filed petition in the court to ban the use of loudspeakers in Mosques and 5 times of calling for namaz, but totally forget and overlooked the excessive firecrackers beating drums and loud speakers when Durga, Ganpati and other idols gets immersion in the waters. 

Social organisation totally forgets and overlooked 9 day of Garba festivals.   Social organizations raised their voice against noise pollution to ban loudspeakers on the mosques.  Due to their efforts loudspeakers banned on mosques to call Muslims for prayer. However, once any rule framed by Hon’ble High Court, it is duty of every citizen to obey the rulings.  The contention of the anti noise pollution organisations was that the peace of the area gets disturb due to Aazaan the 5 times call for prayers to the Muslims.  Aazan period is max upto 5 or 8 minutes, but it is banned similarly every citizen should celebrate festivals with minimum noise.  In city like Mumbai, where noise pollution already  above its decibel limit, every citizen irrespective their cast, creed and religion should be sensible towards noise.  Though the sound box played almost entire day upto 11 days, sound of firecrackers during vitsurjens makes the environment dirty and polluted, still it is not deliberated seriously.

It is request with all the Mandals and societies to celebrate the festivals fervently with least volume to give least trouble to others specially the students.  These young students are the future of the county, but the such noise may divert the path of students.  No religion giving teaching to disturbed the peace of others. Celebrate the festival with positive will and maintained the passion and zeal alive.
