Air pollution

Pollution of cities must be tackled by the government on war footing. It’s so bad that on weather app by The Weather Channel it shows the air in Mumbai and at least 15-20 Indian cities as “Very unhealthy air quality”.

Measures to be taken:
1. Take all polluting (Non-compliant with emissions norm) vehicles off the road immediately.
2. Strictly ensure factories (including small scale) don’t emit/release pollutants in Air/Water etc. it should be handed over to non-polluting disposal. Implement a system for this nation-wide.
3. Introduce public transport in modern vehicles like Tata NANO/Mahindra e2o replacing Rikshaw. Let Banks work out special packages for this.
4. Release gases which will clear current dust/smoke/haze in Indian cities.
5. Create more green patches (Lawn) to maximum possible extent. Do redeveloping of building in groups of buildings so a green area can be planned in every community. Plant more trees on sides of roads. Spaces between two directions of Road/Highway should have Lawns. No land should be exposed, it should always have green lawn. Use sprinklers to water trees instead of Water Tankers.

I had commented “3. Reduce burning of any kind. That will include “No cremation” - Very unpalatable to a majority. The Parsis have a very good solution for dead bodies, but would be unacceptable to the majority. “ Mr. Kaushikk D. Vyas commented “Making suggestions n implementation there is big gap.” While I was only suggesting what might be a good idea, it seems that this idea is already gone to the level of a State senate Bill in USA Washington State is poised to become the first state in the Union to allow “human composting,” or the “accelerated conversion of human remains to soil.” Senate Bill 5001, titled “Concerning human remains,” would allow for human composting, also known as “recomposition” in Washington, local KIRO-TV reported. According to the bill, human remains “means the body of a deceased person, includes the body in any stage of decomposition, and includes postreduction human remains.” “There’s really only two options for when we die: cremation and burial,” said Katrina Spade, a human composting advocate and CEO of Recompose, the company hoping to become the go-to firm for human composting in Washington if it becomes legal. Neither of those options “felt particularly meaningful to me and I think if that’s the case, it’s true for others as well,” Spade said. Spade compared human composting to processes already in effect to recycle animal remains. “They’ve already done lots of research about the safe and effective ways to recycle animals back to the land on farms,” she said. “We proved recomposition was indeed safe and effective for humans as well,” Spade said, referring to a study conducted at Washington State University using the corpses of six human donors. According to Spade, human composting involves covering the dead body with natural materials, such as straw or wood chips, which leads to accelerated decomposition over the course of three to seven weeks. Families would have first dibs on the resulting “soil,” Spade said, and if they don’t want it, “we’ll partner with local conservation groups around the Puget Sound region so that that soil will be used to nourish the land here in the state.” more  
When my wife and I moved into a large house in rural Canada, many neighbours were using a small compost heap – about 3 cu metres or so, and we did so too, in the big back garden. It is not difficult to implement at village level in India as these UP farmers have discovered and it is cost effective and environmentally friendly. These UP farmers reduced their carbon footprint by 22 lakh kilos, using this method more

It is high time every one should get alarmed and do their part. The law enforcing agencies like pollution control boards shall strictly enforce laws. This is the only way the situation will improve. more  
I am 58 years old. I sold off my Car 8 year back. Though it was Pollution norm compliant. As you have mentioned a 60 year old wants to keep his polluting BS II or III car and causing pollution outside his car and he will travel inside Pollution free. Height of selfishness Regarding Government: Reducing or removing Pollution is not possible without government machinery/help. Awareness can make less adding to Pollution but what exists currently we need Government machinery China in 2008 had 20 highly polluted cities. Their Government used lot of Machinery to remove the pollution and now only two cities are remaining. This foul cry that citizens should do everything only absolves Government Of responsibilities. No patriot will accept that let it be any government. Only people with vested interest will absolve Government. Thanks & Regards more
