Pollution

Every year pollution soars to hazardous levels in Delhi on the night of Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. This is due to the massive quantities of smoke from fireworks going up during the festival. Often the pollution reaches hazardous levels.

The WHO recommends a maximum of 50 micrograms of PM10 particulates, which are very hazardous to health per cubic meter but, post-Diwali, the levels rose to 2,000 micrograms per cubic meter. A World Health Organization (WHO) survey in 2014 found that 13 of the most polluted 20 cities in the world were in India. Delhi was the most polluted city in the world, the survey added.

Ahead of the festival, the government in Delhi had appealed to residents to stay away from fireworks, but old habits die hard and people do not heed the advice.

Delhi’s pollution in winter is also aggravated by a drop in temperature which leads to the city’s poor burning rubbish at night to stay warm. Agricultural waste is also set on fire across thousands of hectares around Delhi to clear cropland, which burns for days on end.

There is an urgent need to spread awareness about pollution-causing practices and urge the concerned people to follow them. Proper legislation and effective implementation are the keys to stopping the menace.
