We are too Close to ‘Its too Late!’ – Our Planet is in such a Danger.

Save Earth! Save All of Us! 

EVS or Environmental Studies was a compulsory subject in school as in those days the government thought that it’s important that young people the future of India value the environment and try to save it. However, we bring too many pollutants and very little environment friendly technology.

SOIL and SURROUNDINGS

Is MCGM the only one to be blamed for the floods in Mumbai? Aren’t authorities giving approvals for construction on marshy land? Aren’t we replenishing our society’s soil every year? Aren’t the development boards using too much mechanically broken stone pieces? Isn’t toxic waste guttered out in the Mithi River? Can all of this be Restored? Think about it! I don’t believe in giving scientific details to give you some proof as you all already know it or have observed, I am giving a piece of my  mind.

Mafia’s in metro cities buy the mangrove land at a dirt cheap price rate which is extremely low. As low as Rs 10/- to 100/- per square feet. These gangs help these owners to take off the Mangroves in a year or two whilst releasing toxic waste which harm the mangroves or block water so the plants die. The owner then approaches the authority to take the land out of the Forest Act and they start construction and sell homes at crores of rupees (Rs 1 Crore = Rs 10 Million).

This has to stop!

Air and Water

Don’t you feel that the air quality is degrading and many people are having breathing problems. Cancer may be prevented by reducing the pollutants in air, water and food but people have no choice as one cannot live life without driving a car just for a 200 meter length. People will still release waste in the natural water resources and blame the government for not cleaning it. Stop This! The People elect a representative and the people are the Government, if our representative cannot do that then its our job, Okay!

Radiation

Not Nuclear because that’s in a very high control. But I would blame the government for taking off a law which was very crucial for the health of the public.

I was watching  parliament session on TV and the BJP minister tabled a bill saying that mobile radiation shouldn’t be curbed as we have no proof  whether its harming the health and well being and that research cannot be proof. I know now that 2 months after Reliance Jio came with Big Bang. So you changed laws for party funding? Where ever there is a mobile tower there is an increase in Cancer Patients. Isn’t that data enough?

Sound Pollution

Sound Pollution is a very important pollutant which gets ignored. The harm it causes has long term effects and cannot be corrected. My Maternal Grandfather used to work in Air India as an Aircraft Engineer, he was constantly surrounded by noise. He started getting hearing problems at the age of 60. He’s 82 now. Guess the hearing? It’s a scream equal to a whisper.

Thankfully the court gave a judgment restricting decibel levels especially during festivals.


If I have missed out something then please comment below and share a piece of your mind too. We are are the people of our lovely planet and we should save it.

Pollution is not a not a Co-Incidence to the end of the World. It is man made so as is the End of the World.

Save Earth! Save All of Us!

Unraveling Today’s Media

If we see history, it is evident that print media was quite popular and people trusted the journalist’s report. Media was a social machine which brought people together and was a useful tool in social upliftment and mass communication. I have great respect for the journalists till 1960’s. It was only later that profit became more important than the primary objective of giving news and news reports started becoming questionable. While print media was more popular, Television and Radio news also existed during those days.

Now, we are aware of the past and let’s just speak of the current scenario of the media and let’s keep social media out of it for a while. Now, all major media houses are companies and their primary aim is to make a profit out of advertisements. They no longer have that ‘let the truth come out’ motto but have an ‘increase more TRP’ attitude. This is the primary change what has disrupted not only the Indian Media but the world’s media. Most NEWS companies were ‘Standalone’ in the 1960’s but if we see today, most NEWS companies have allied businesses and many big businessmen have a share in it. For instance, Ambani’s own TV18, Times of India has many allied companies including event management companies and channels like Movies Now, Zoom, and so on. Most of these company influencer’s have political favoritism or I must say they are important for business. All media giants seem either booked or controlled directly or indirectly by a political party. This is not my view but this is the experience of the masses and more recently it added a question to the media from the common man ‘Why did you keep the Finance Bill 2017 under Shadows?’

Now, let’s have a look at the Social Media which a few years ago seemed liberal and didn’t seem bias. This is no longer the scenario now. There are Internet sites like ScoopWhoop, BuzzFeed and much more which are news delivering business houses having a large presence on the social media like FaceBook and Twitter. The news from these media sites seems biased to mainly two major political parties (BJP and INC). I said seemed and I am not blaming any party. There are sites who are supporting Gau Rakshaks and there are sites against it. There are sites which deliver news of a Muslim man being killed by so-called ‘Gau Rakshaks’ and at the same time, there are sites which deliver news on ‘Hindu’s being tortured in West Bengal’. What’s up with these Guys? These media agencies don’t deserve the Right to Opinion and its time they stand controlled in terms of religious matters as it will be very difficult to settle down the religious fire in the country which will take many lives and devastate many families economically.

My strong urge to all of you is to stay cautious of the news reported on all mediums and to apply your mind before making an opinion.

My personal thought on all types of NEWS delivering network’s is that they should have the Right to Speech but the Right to Opinion should be controlled as the Opinion itself is a brainwashing tool. I also feel that delivery of certain social news should be questioned by an Audit Agency and incorrect news should be charged by the amount of revenue earned on that particular news. This, in turn, will make news network be more careful and political parties and big businessmen will have less control over it to achieve mala-fide benefit, thus slowly unraveling media from the Political cum Corporate worm.
