Save environment

  1. 1. SAVING OUR ENVIRONMENT IS TODAY’S NEED - By Puspendu Pattanayek E-mail: p.pattanayek@yahoo.co.inENVIRONMENT is the God created domiciliary where we born, grow, play, love, and live. Itconsists of earth, water, air, plants and animals. It is our original house for living. Beforecreating life in the earth, God created air, water, soil, and plants which are essential for a life. Atprimitive age, human beings used to fulfill their basic needs- foods, cloth, and shelter byconsuming the plants and animals in raw form. They took fruits from plants, meat from otheranimals and water from river as food. They used the bark of plants and skin of animals as cloth.They stayed at cave for shelter. And there was equilibrium in environment.Our environment consists of all the things like the living and the non living things in it. It can beclassified as natural environment and Built environment. Natural environment is somethingthat has been in existence for long. It is God gifted. And the Built environment is the one thathas been created by man.After thousands of years man try to become civilized and they try to change their life style. Theyare using the natural resources abundantly. They wasting the resources rather than utilizing it.They are changing their environment very fast. They are changing the God’s grace.The natural environment is being polluted due to the unnatural factors. Humans cause morepollution than the environmental causes like a volcanic eruption. It is the reckless and thecaustic human nature that is primarily responsible for the environmental pollution. Most of thepeople are responsible for the pollution caused to the environment for their own personalmotives.Environmental pollution is the biggest menace to the human race on this planet today. It meansadding impurity to environment. The environment consists of earth, water, air, plants andanimals. 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 pollutioncontinues, the day is not far when our earth will be a boiling pan and become a desert. Or it willbe 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 otherhand impure air causes diseases and impairs our health and causes our death. Smoke pollutesthe air. It is the root of air pollution. The smoke which is discharged from industries, 1
  2. 2. automobiles and kitchens is the mixture of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane etc.These are all poisonous gases. These cause lung-cancer, tuberculosis etc. which take a heavytoll of life. The glaring incident is the Bhopal gas leak in December 1984. Thousands of theresidents of Bhopal died due to lungs problem which was caused by methylamine gas from theUnion Carbide Plant.The garbage emitting foul smell, the decaying plants and animals also cause air pollution. Hencethe doctors advise the patients having lungs trouble to settle in some rural places because theair of villages is pure and free from population.Then comes sound pollution. The harsh sounds of buses, trucks, cars etc. affect our power ofhearing and causes fart trouble. It has been reported that there are two villages namedBiraspalli and Devadas Palli near Dum Dum airport m Calcutta where a large number of peoplehave lost their power of hearing. This is because of the frequent sounds of planes coming in andgoing out of Dum Dum Airport. The evils of sound pollution can be imagined from this example.Excessive usage of mobile phone calls also causes deaf.The water of rivers and seas is being constantly polluted all over the world by variousdangerous chemical and biological wastes. Mills and factories discharge very harmful wastewaters into many rivers and sea. The water of the Ganges flowing by the side of both Varanashiand Calcutta is extremely polluted and contains all sorts of dangerous bacteria. It is really verystrange and laughable that large number of the Indians regard this water as holy. They evendrink this water for salvation. There is no doubt that the fish that grow in such waters arepoisonous 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 insecticidesand pesticides.Day by day, we are exploring our needs. Now we have to think, we have to reassess what ourneeds are. Saving our environment is today’s need.If the air we breathe, the water we drink and the soil which produces our crops, vegetables andfruits, all become more and more impure, then our chances of good health and longevity will bevery less and less. Environment pollution is a serious menace to our existence. Realising thedanger, we must plant trees in large number to absorb impure air. Impure water fromindustries can be sent back for purification and then it can be used for irrigation purpose. Ourgovernment is well aware of the fact and is taking steps to save environment from pollution.We have also I minister to look after the environment. Only I can do care for myenvironment. 2
