A serious issue can never be taken lightly . Let no authorities sideline the threat to posterity – the lack of clean air !
My talk with the women of Lions Club India was very reassuring . I was so happy that women are so aware , so conscious of the air-pollution crisis ! Each lady was interactive with a query and or remark during the session !
I addressed the causes of such high levels of air pollutants in India – who and what was creating this threat to our health . People were shocked with the number of diseases it causes in pregnant women , children and old people. This devil spares no one !
The latest policies , the role of WHO , the National Clean Air Programme were discussed . Citizen awareness and participation will surely put a lot of pressure on the people who are decision makers . We have promised to organise free health checkup camps with Lions club in the near future .
