My NGO Tree For Life salutes the Supreme Court Decision on banning of cracker sale this Diwali in order to cut down air pollution due to bursting of crackers .
Last November ,post Diwali ,Delhi faced the” killer smog ‘when schools and offices were shut and life came to a standstill as the air to breathe was so toxic ,one could not step out without a mask ! Active on the streets ,I have witnessed this first hand .Too many health issues cropped up and hospitals were flooded with asthma ,skin ,eyes ,nose ,throat allergies and increased lung diseases and cancer patients .
Let us give a hand to the government and bring about a change this time .
Yes , better implementation would have been to warn the cracker sellers so that they would not invest money and have a wasted stock !!
