Few Days ago I wrote a post on the 3 issues that India is facing that is Population,Pollution and Corruption.
If you want to check that post here it is
In this post I will try to highlight the possible solutions in tackling these 3 issues if not completely eradicate them.This post is written on the basis of a very insightful comments I received in my previous post from Rachna and Ritesh
India is developing at a rapid pace and it’s development started way back from 1980’s if I am not wrong and still we are developing.India has set 2020 as the target to get tag of Developed Country but the present scenario speaks a very different story of India becoming a developed country by 2020.No,I am not a pessimist and I really want the name of India to be on the developed list but to become a developed country we must first tackle the 3 main issue I mentioned because as for me I sense these 3 issue to be main threat in India’s Development.
So here I provide some possible solutions for these issues and countrymen be with me for making India Developed.
- First of all there is a law in India to have not more than 2 children for any couples but this law is hardly implemented whereas In China if a couple has more than 1 child it is considered illegal and they have implemented it utmost perfection.
- Eduction-It is one of the most important tool.In India education system is pathetic,it is not able to the reach mass especially the rural population,so I believe it is not only the responsibility of the Government but also the Educated Indians to make them aware about the various issues related to population.
- Use of contraceptive devices.Contraception,while not infallible, drastically reduces fertility rates,often with minimal expense.While contraception and education about using contraception is widely available in rich countries,people in poor countries may not have access to simple contraceptive methods like condoms,or even don’t know what they are.
- Child Adoption should be encouraged.A couple can give birth to one child and if they want they can adopt another,in that way the orphan will get a home and it will also add to controlling population.
In 2009 Health and Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said that in order to control population–“If there is electricity in every village,then people will watch TV till late at night and then fall asleep.They won’t get a chance to produce children,” Mr Azad said at the time. “When there is no electricity, there is nothing else to do but produce babies.”
So,I guess the development and education of rural population in India will be very much beneficial in controlling population.
2.Pollution:-As I said in my previous post there are 3 major types of pollution Air,Water and Noise and now Soil pollution is also on the rise.Pollution not only hamper the Environment but also the Human race.
In order to control Air pollution we should make the environment greener and should plant more and more trees.Not only the Government but also the Public must cooperate in this regard.We should minimize the use of Private Vehicles and should use Public Vehicles wherever possible.We should opt for Car Pooling in major cities.Better off,walk or cycle to school!It does wonders to the environment,reduces the amount of air pollution and noise,and makes you fit!The Law on Vehicle Emission and Emission from Industries should be enacted strictly.
For Noise Pollution–Do not use car horns unnecessarily.Areas like hospitals and campuses are silence zones and honking is prohibited there.Avoid loud music,which hurts your ears and others’ ears.Firecrackers are extremely loud, so don’t try and burn them unnecessarily.
To minimize Water Pollution–Sewage should be treated before it is discharged into the river or ocean.This is possible through modern techniques.Modern techniques are widely available but we least make use of it,there should be procedural check before sewage are dispensed into water bodies.Laws should be strictly implemented in this regard.Waste food material,paper,decaying vegetables and plastics should not be thrown into open drains.We Indians have the tendency of not using the Dustbin and throwing households wastages in open drains and water bodies.These should be minimised.Effluents from distilleries, and solid wastes containing organic matter should be sent to biogas plants for generation of energy.Oil slicks in water bodies should be skimmed off from the surface with suction device.Sawdust may be spread over oil slicks to absorb the oil components.Promoting health awareness programmes in localities showing the deadly effects to Water Pollution should be organised.Construction of soundproof rooms for noisy machines in industrial and manufacturing installations must be encouraged.Vegetation (trees) along roads and in residential areas is a good way to reduce noise pollution as they absorb sound.
Soil Pollution–It is defined as the presence of materials in the soil which are harmful to the living beings when they cross their threshold concentration levels.To minimise Soil Pollution we must look for proper ways of Watse Management.This is the job given to Panchayats in villages,municipalities in towns and cities.However,each one of us has to do our bit.Avoid Plastic bags and Polythenes and if used they shuld be recycled effectively and should not be dumped in Soil as they are non-degradable.Use of biodegradable products wherever possible.Use of pesticides and insecticides should be minimised and There should be plantation of trees on large scale.
That’s all for now.In my Next post I will discuss about possible prevention of Corruption.The Information provided here is a mixed bag of Internet Research and My Views.
Over to the Public with a Cartoon Strip… 🙂
