Srinagar || As u know the current situation of kashmir, the trauma among people when they hear a noise similar to shooting creating a panic and everyone start asking “ye kyaa go” means what just happened. I am really saddened by the fact that it is common to use firecrackers in marriages which is not good for our environment and neither for community. creating a panic among the people. Nowadays it has been a trend to use the sutali bomb , Green crackers in marriages which do not have any moral base. And people knowing the consequences of these noises still uses this for reason which i don’t know. An sensible person won’t do such activities which is harmful to our society and as well as animals.
Some of the Firecrackers are louder than the safe permissible levels of sound for human ears. Loud noises can lead to conditions like tinnitus, hearing loss, restlessness, high blood pressure, cardiac arrest and sleep disturbances. Old age people can suffer severe problems like heart attacks due to the chocking loud sounds. Fire cracker increases the concentration of dust and pollutants in the air. After firing, the dust and pollutants packed with chemicals like Sulphur, zinc, copper and sodium is settling down in the exposed areas and these dust and pollutants start destructing our environment and easily put our health at risk.
In my opinion Its best to avoid Firecracker during any ceremony. And not only in my opinion but the millions around the globe are sensible enough to consider this act a social evil. If we don’t make steps to protect our environment soon enough we will have to buy oxygen cylinders to breathe some air that we are polluting happily. Think about your future how would you feel if breathing in your surroundings is equal to smoking a cigarette. How would you want your life to be think about the future generations and chose wisely.
