Paragraph on communal harmony, communal harmony paragraph
Communal Harmony


India is a birthplace of several religions - Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Shikhism. Some great saints were born in this soil. They practised, preached and propagated their religions throughout the country. The Indian are in general peace loving people. The Muslims came in India and made this land their home. Hindu-Muslim unity was achieved during the British rule. People of India lived together with the spirit of unity. Tolerance and love of peace are the glorious tradition of the land. But the communal politics for the political mileage has recently spoilt the peace of this country. We must face it with force. For peace, prosperity and progress of the country communal harmony, religious tolerance and a sense of oneness are necessary. Our country is committed to secularism. A nation cannot remain united without the feeling of brotherhood among the people of different religious groups. So a sense of security and social justice must be met to all communities of the country.

Paragraph on 'Newspaper'

Paragraph on Newspaper


A newspaper is the history for one day of the world'. Now newspapers are brought out in many languages in our country. They give us news of events that take place in different parts of the world. We cannot think of modern life without them. The newspaper gives us news of home and abroad, speeches of politicians, reports of sports, activities of the states, reviews of films and advertisements. There are also articles on industry, agriculture, even stories and puzzles. People now read the newspaper for both pleasure and profit. It brings the news of all and all. It shapes public opinion. It prints the policies of the political parties and the states. It publishes articles written by great scholars. Newspaper reading is the easiest way of increasing general knowledge. But sometimes we get conflicting reports of an event. A press must be free. It must not feed false news. It must give impartial news and views. It should give guidance to the masses.

Paragraph on 'Science - A Blessing or A Curse'

Paragraph on Science - A Blessing or A Curse

Science is the sinew of modern civilization. It has worked in every branch of our life. The gifts of science have made our life easy and comfortable. What was once impossible is now very much possible. In a minute we can contact a friend in far off America. We have reached the moon. Science has conquered disease, time and distance. It has given us tremendous power. And sadly, with this power in hand, man is killing man. Deadly weapons are threatening life. Pollutions have endangered life. Machines have made life mechanical. And mechanical life is sure to lose peace. So the lovers of peace call science a curse. But we should question man's motives, not science. A knife can cut fruits. It can also cut throats. Intention - good or bad - is the last word.

Science - A Blessing or A Curse

Science has made great progress in our age. It has made our life easy. Mother needs not labour hard in her kitchen to cook food for the family. She can keep the food in the fridge. We have fans to beat the heat. We can light, cool and heat our houses and offices with the help of machines. Science has made travel comfortable and speedy. Science has given us means of education and enjoyment -TV, video, radio, etc. Many fell diseases are now curable. Science has given eyes to the blind, legs to the lame and ears to the deaf. Computer has brought speed and correctness in our work. Science has, of course, worked as a c├╣rse in some cases. It has given us tremendous power. And sadly, with this power in hand, man is killing man. People have produced powerful weapons. Lakhs of people were killed in Japan by two atom bombs. Everyday hundreds of men fall to bullets and meet with car accidents throughout the world. Pollutions have endangered life. Science has no doubt, given us prosperity. But it has taken away peace. Science has taken our soul in our mad race for material success. So the lovers of peace call science a curse. But we should question man's motives, not science. A knife can cut fruits. It can also cut throats. Intention - good or bad - is the last word.

A letter to the editor of an English daily expressing your concern over price rise of essential commodities

To

The Editor

The Telegraph

Prafulla Sarkar Street

Kolkata - 700001


Sub :- Price-hike of essential commodities.

 Sir,

     I shall be highly obliged to you if you kindly allow me a little space in your esteemed daily to express my concern over the rapidly increasing price of essential commodities.

    The recent price-hike of essential commodities has become a headache to most of the people irrespective of any class. It is now almost impossible for the people to make both ends meet. Especially it is too much difficult for the middle class and low income-group of people. The day-labourers are the worst sufferers. The price of rice, vegetable, fish, meat, spices, clothes, medicines and many other essential things are going beyond reach. All these have made the life of common people miserable.

     I hope this will draw the prompt attention of the government to take effective measures to control such price-hike of essential commodities as soon as possible.

     Thanking you,

Place :  .....................                                                                                        Yours faithfully,

Date : ......................                                                                                          (Your Name)

My Favourite Poet

Paragraph on My Favourite Poet, paragraph on William Wordsworth
William Wordsworth

  Poetry is the song of our life. Various English poets have penned their inner feelings of life through their poetry. I love English poetry, and William Wordsworth is my favourite poet. His poetry has a mysterious and soothing effect. He gave a blow to the artificial tastes. Wordsworth was born in 1870 at a little village named Cockermouth.

Wordsworth inherited a deep love for the countryside and Nature from his ancestor. He developed intimacy and sympathy with the moods of Nature in childhood. He spent a greater part of his daily life in the company of Nature. He enjoyed the beautiful spots, the flowing of rivers and the majesty of mountains. He became a real lover and worshipper of Nature as he sees in man. He creates a spiritual relationship between Nature and Man. To him, nothing in Nature is trivial. He believed Nature never betrays the heart that loves her. Nature is not merely sensuous; it is a physical as well as spiritual entity. To Wordsworth Nature is intelligent, meaningful and profound. It gives knowledge to man and it also teaches moral truth. The poet identifies God and Nature as one.

Also Read : Paragraph on My Favourite Author

Wordsworth is also a poet of man. Along with Nature, he is also interested in the rustic life. His poetry represents the qualities of strength, endurance, simplicity, courage and hope of common people.

Wordsworth's love for Nature is nowhere  found among any other poets or writers and so instead of calling his name, we call him as the Nature's poet or the Poet priest of Nature.

Paragraph On 'My Aim In Life'

Thursday, 17 September 2020

If I were granted three wishes what would these be and why?

If I were granted three wishes what would these be and why?

Wishes are not granted easily, because if wishes are achieved easily, the meaning and charm of wishes would vanish. However, in the hypothetical realm there are always wishes to be granted. The three wishes would like to be granted are freedom from diseases for mankind, freedom from war and violence of any kind, and housing facility to all.


These are all realistic wishes. I have deliberately not chosen any unrealistic wish because they would imperil the natural creation and may even jeopardise the existence of the world like in the story of mythological Midas. Midas was granted the wish that whatever he touched turned into gold. Unwittingly, Midas had asked only suffering for himself. He could not even eat because even food material turned into gold as soon as he began eating.


Today mankind is suffering from a number of diseases especially Covid-19. Diseases are painful and hamper the day to day work of man. Diseases kill human beings early in life. Diseases debilitate a man and robs an earning member from family, work sphere and the world at large. Thus the ultimate loss is to humanity and to the society. Unfortunately, loss due to diseases is a wanton loss because the diseases are preventable and curable. But disease is also a fundamental truth of life, like old age and death. Nonet- heless a disease-free life is not an impossibility, altogether. Therefore, in wishing this wish, one is not completely unrealistic. Therefore, I would like to be granted this wish for the ultimate progress and benefit to mankind. If this wish was granted, will the medical profession or the doctors become redundant? The answer is 'no, because the doctors would still exist, not to treat the diseases of the human beings but to make human beings more and more healthy and more and more robust. Medical science would exist as a pure science for the advancement of human knowledge.


My second wish, already stated, is freedom from violence and war. In the last 5000 years of civilization, there have been more than 50,000 wars and uncountable instances of violence which have brought about nothing but loss, destruction and remorse to mankind. Civilization would have definitely been at a much higher scale if wars had not taken place and mankind would have been much happier and peaceful. Along with scientific progress, weapons of destruction and violence have also advanced. These are unfortunate developments. There have been men and organisations for pacific cause, but their efforts have not been able to wipe out wars from the face of the globe. Therefore, if this wish was granted, it would be a God send insurance for mankind for unfettered peace and progress in future. Right now, due to the unmitigated spectre of violence and war compounded by the nuclear arsenals, the very existence of mankind is threatened.


My third and final wish is to have a housing facility for all. Isn't it unfortunate that mankind has led a settled existence for the last 5000 years, but more than half of mankind has not shelter. His existence is worse than that of a wandering named, for he has to live in slums, shanty dwellings or on pavements. Given this condition, how can these men be expected to channelise their full potential in the service of the progress of civilization? Therefore, if my last wish was granted, I believe it will ultimately benefit the mankind and fulfilment of all the three wishes together will definitely mark a tremendous advancement of the human civilization towards peace and prosperity.

Paragraph on My Favourite Author

Paragraph on My Favourite Author, paragraph on Sir Walter Scott
Sir Walter Scott

Of all English authors, my favourite is Sir Walter Scott. Some of his novels are Guy Mannering, Old Morality, Ivanhoe, The Talisman. Guy Mannering and Old Morality deal with Scotland, and are my favourites. Ivanhoe deals with the English history. The Talisman deals with the Continent. The range of Scott was vast. His novels dealt with different countries.


In my leisure, I pick up one of his novels from my collection. While reading, get deeply engrossed in the book and feel myself to be a part of it. I forget my own real self and visualize myself to be one of the characters of the book. I am sometimes so fascinated by it that l even cannot hear my mother calling out for dinner. To me, reading Scott's novels is the most delightful thing in the world. It is a source of joy to me. It colours my spare time. It makes me forget the crassness of men around. His books have stood the test of time.



I enjoy his style of narration, freshness and rapidity of action. Scott, through his novels, unfolds the treasures of the world of adventure and imagination to me. Naturally, his novels nurture my imagination and sharpen my sensibility. His novels are very realistic and portray people who are more like common men, but with creative abilities. His novels are so simple that they develop in me a sense of identification with the character of his novels, especially with lvanhope.


There is no denying that he spoke of joys, sorrows, hopes and aspirations of the Scottish people. He created the genre of romantic historical novels. A few of his predecessors wrote historical novels, but none of them had any feeling for historical realism. They could not induce in the reader 'a willing suspension of disbelief. But Scott blended romance with historical facts. Thus, he recreated the past and projected the present into the former. He used the knowledge of his times in his novels. Thus, he humanised his historical characters. He was a pageant-master. He organised a procession through the ages. In it, every degree of humanity, from kings to clowns played a part. Scott is very good at description and action. His novels teach us how to subtly deal with various aspects of life. So, he is my favourite author.

Paragraph on A Book Fair

Paragraph on A Book Fair

A book fair is a joyful fair where books are displayed and sold to the common people. It is a paradise of a book lover. Today a book fair has become very popular in our country. It is now held annually in towns and cities every year. A book fair usually lasts for a week. Hundreds of stalls are set up in an enclosed area. They are decorated nicely. There are books on all subjects for all classes of people. Books are here open to be seen or read. Seminar on books is also held here.The book lover and reader gather in a book fair. A book fair is an important part of education. It helps to broaden our kingdom of knowledge. A book  fair forms the habit of reading, buying, writing and taking care of books. Every student and every educated person should visit the book fair every year. I am also fond of visiting a book fair.


Book Fair Paragraph


A Book Fair 

A book fair, broadly speaking, is an exhibition of books. Books on various subjects are available at stalls. These days book fairs are held all over the world. But the Kolkata Book Fair, organised by the Publishers and Book-sellers Guild, is the world's largest book fair in terms of public attendance. It is visited by innumerable people every year. But the books are not the only attraction of the fair. Cultural functions, seminars and felicitations of noted writers, artists and poets are also arranged. All these make the fair much more colourful and attractive. It serves as a window to the world.


It was feared that the advent of television would ring the death-knell of books. But it has been proved wrong. Even a popular TV serial cannot destroy the urge for reading books. There are billions of book lovers across the world who would prefer visiting a book fair and roam around the stalls. Books on different subjects are displayed and one can have a close look at the books and have his/her choice. To a book lover books are the constant source of joy and knowledge. They feed their hungry minds and shelter their burdened souls.


The immediate object of a book fair is to acquaint the ardent readers with the books published in different branches of study and thus, to promote the sale of books. Old and rare books are, at times, available in the book fair. Shelves display a variety of books for the visitors so that they can choose freely the books they desire for. But there is more than what meets the eyes. A book fair is also a meeting of two minds - the mind of the author and the receptive mind of the reader. An invisible bond is, thus, established between them. While book lovers have a wide range of titles to choose from, book sellers use the fairs to gauge the taste and liking of the reader. To the bibliophiles, a book fair offers an escape from the "fever and fret" of life. The reader once again finds books as never-parting friends. It makes the reader's life more meaningful and reveals to him the bright side of life.

Everyone has an aim and ambition in life. Without any proper aim no one can grow in life. A man without any aim in life is like a ship without a rudder or an envelope without an address. Such a man is hopeless or helpless. He always complains of hard times and blames his fate. My aim in life is to become a good teacher. Educating little children is a real blessing. I shall teach in a school and give my students the gift of knowledge. Children are the future of our country. Being a teacher I shall be able to bring happiness and laughter in the lives of these little flowers. There are many children who do not know what to do in their lives. I will guide and help them to learn and become good citizens of the country. They will lead the nation. I want to teach in such a way so that students can follow their dreams. I will help them in broadening their outlook. I’ll groom their personality and shape their characters. I’ll try to inculcate in them good moral values. According to the great educationist and our former president Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, “Teachers are the custodians of the highest values.”

Your Aim In Life

Or

The Profession You Wish To Choose

Or

If You Were A Scientist

Paragraph on My Aim in Life, paragraph on your aim in life
Your Aim in Life | Image : Pixabay

The correct choice of profession is very important today, for one's future depends on it. With the advancement of science and technology, various industries have been set up. Scientific inventions and innovations are always the main forces that drive the progress of human civilisation. Hence, I dream of becoming a scientist. There are, of course, some reasons for my choice. Firstly, before scientific inventions, our lives were laborious and full of hardships. Blessed by science, man no more laments with

Shakespeare:

As flies to wanton boys

Are we to the gods.

They kill us for their sport.


Science works for the betterment of humanity. It encompasses and nourishes modern life in such a way that a modern man without science is a non-entity today. Science frees us of hardships, dangers and sufferings. It guarantees man's success in life. It acts as a driving force behind any human excellence. Science contemplates a world with enough food for everyone. It has given us telephones, the mobile phone, and similar gadgets with the help of which we can talk to our friends and relatives who are far away from us. It has brought tremendous changes to farming with the introduction of machinery. All industries are built with the help of science. Without the application of science, manufacture of millions of articles is simply impossible. Science helps us preserve our food by refrigeration, dehydration and canning. In a word, science has entered every part and phase of our civilization. Whether we like it or not, we are dependent on science for the minutest of work in our daily life. In short, science makes the world hospitable.


Secondly, science, like art, is an eternal search for truth. A genuine scientist works with a missionary zeal and steady determination. His principal aim is to promote the welfare of humanity. They pursue their task with an ever increasing devotion. Science makes use of the natural resources for social welfare. As a scientist, I shall not fail in this role.


Thirdly, under Article 51A (W) of the Indian Constitution, it is a duty of every Indian citizen to develop and promote the scientific spirit. Science develops curiosity and sharpens human faculties. The scientific mind questions, investigates and records the inferences to carry the scientific process forward. A genuine scientist should be creative, constructive, and highly responsible. To him, there is no place for sentiments and dogmas.


But, like any profession, there is a flip side to the work of a scientist. Today, crafty politicians and militants in a number of countries are using science and scientists to commit crimes against humanity. I am aware of this problem and so when I become a scientist, I will stick to my responsibility of promoting human welfare. I dream of becoming a scientist so that I too may make the same contribution towards the progress of humanity. I believe that every dream is attainable if the dreamer works tirelessly to realise it.

Paragraph on 'Child Labour In India'

Child Labour in India

child labour in india, paragraph on child labour
Child Labour, Image : Pixabay

       From ancient times, children were required to do sonic work either at home or in the field along with  their parents. The problem of child labour was identified as a major problem in the19th century and legislative measures were first adopted as early as 1881. Children are a major part of India's population and it is national shame that bulk of them still suffer from malnutrition, poverty, disease, cruel exploitation through forced child labour and beggary and on top of all, illiteracy. One of the worst forms of child exploitation is child labour and India has the largest number of the child labourers in the world. According to Census 2011, the number of child labourers in India is 10.1 million of which 5.6 million are boys and 4.5 million are girls. While the vast proportion Indian's working children are employed in agriculture, many are engaged in in brick kilns, carpet weaving, garment making, domestic service, food and refreshment services (such as tea stalls), fisheries and mining. Despite the provisions of restrictive labour laws, the practice of child labour continues unabated because exploitation of children is of financial compulsion of parents. The general improvement in socio-economic condition of people will result in gradual elimination of child labour.

Paragraph on Child Labour

AIthough the rule to prohibit child labour has  already been in effect, the problem of child labour is the most shameful aspect in our society. None is serious about this problem. In spite of the awareness that none should promote child labour, people engage children in various kinds of works, whether be they capable or not. To use children for one's selfish end is not expected in a civilized country.

But it seems that it is inevitable in our society. Self-centred people are responsible for this proliferation of the problem of child labour. But the Government cannot enforce the law to stop the evils of child labour. In order to stop child labour, the Government should confirm education of children, provide good midday meal regularly, support the parents of the children financially, make accounts of the drop-out children quite seriously, and make people aware of the fact that child labour is certainly a curse to a civilized country. Most of the children who come of the poor families gradually become involved in child labour. Those children cannot but choose the way of child labour because of their pecuniary circumstances. Moreover, the illiterate, poor, and thoughtless parents insist their children to earn for their families. Therefore, the parents should be determined that they shall not plunge their children into the darkness of child labour which spoils the future of their children.

Unfortunately, the Government, parents, and some selfish and rather cruel people care little about this problem. Consequently, our country has been degrading still in education and economy, The only way to get rid of this evil system is to be morally conscious. If child labour in our country is not prohibited in the true sense of the term, our country will soon be enlisted as the most degrading country in the world.

Paragraph on My Hobby Paintaing


Hobby is an activity done regularly in our leisure time for pleasure. Some people like painting, photography, stamp collecting, fishing, story writing etc. in their leisure. I love to paint. It is my hobby. I paint with watercolor. I like to paint beautiful landscapes. When we go to different places like hill stations, dessert areas, river banks or the countryside, I always take my art materials with me. I like to sit and paint a scenery as I watch it. The painting is then very vivid and comes  alive. I find my hobby refreshing to me. I keep all my paintings carefully. I have participated in different art exhibitions and painting competitions and won prizes too. When I am lonely and bored, my canvas and paper, tubes and bottles of colour and brushes give me wonderful company in a beautiful and colourful way.

Paragraph on My Hobby Gardening

A hobby is a pleasure-giving or interesting pursuit which we follow during our leisure hours. It differs from person to person. Some people like painting, photography, stamp-collecting, fishing, gardening etc. in their leisure. My hobby is, however, gardening. Though it needs constant labour and care, it is the purest of human pleasures and satisfactions. Every afternoon, as I come from school I go to my garden and work there for some time. There I turn the earth up with a spade, pull out the grass, make the soil fit with manure and plant flower-plants. I also water them regularly in the evening. When the plants burst into flowers, their fragrance spreads all around. I find great pleasure when the multi-coloured butterflies visit my garden and the masses of beautiful and colourful flowers flutter in the breeze. This spectacle purifies my soul and keeps me away from the maddening crowd of cities. It gives me enough of physical exercise to keep my body fit and fine. It provides diversion from boredom and refreshes the mind after tiring physical or mental work. My parents, friends and neighbours praise me for it. Every morning my grandmother plucks flowers and blesses me. Her blessing fills me with immense joy and encourages me in my work.


My Hobby (Reading novels)


My hobby reading books, Paragraph on my hobby
My Hobby | Image : Pixabay

The word 'hobby' is derived from 'hobby horse'. It is a small wooden horse for small children to ride on it for their amusement. So hobby is a work in which one indulges in spare time. Hobby offers no monetary benefit. But one derives pleasure from it.


Everybody gets tired of the monotony of daily life. They need relaxation. They need an enjoyable world of their own. For this, they must develop a hobby. It is an escape from the fever and fret of life. There are many hobbies like gardening, philately, numismatics, reading, etc. One adopts a hobby according to one's taste.


My favourite hobby is reading novels. A novel presents a pen-picture of life, society or the characters around us. This picture may be drawn from real life or from imagination. But this picture is seen through the prism of the writer's mind.


 Novels may be divided into various genres -  social, religious, historical, or detective. Sarat Chandra's Palli Samaj is a social novel, whereas Pather Dabi is a political one. Bankim Chatterjee's Raj Singha is a historical novel. Mrs. Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin speaks of the evils of slavery. Sir Walter Scott's novels illuminate many characters of history. Satyajit Ray's Feluda Series belongs to the genre of detective novels.


Novels have an educative value. They make us think. They give us an insight into the habits and customs, likes and dislikes, passions and prejudices of other people. Thus, they widen our intellectual horizon. The novels of Rabindranath Tagore, Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, Sarat Chandra Chatterjee, etc. are the jewels of Bengali literature. The novels of Victor Hugo, Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy are the jewels of English literature. 


Whenever I find time, I pick up a novel of my choice. Novels, I think, are the sources of joy and knowledge. They feed a hungry mind. "Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed and some few to be chewed and digested." Thus, the writer Bacon classifies books. Therefore, choice of books is important. I am fond of classics. I believe they are the nurslings of immortality. They have stood the test of time. In a Word, my hobby of reading novels is a kind of enjoyment for me.

Paragraph on 'Water Pollution'

Write a paragraph 'Water Pollution' 

paragraph on water pollution, water pollution
Water Pollution. Image : Pixabay

Environment means the soil, water, and air around us. The World Environment Day is observed on 5th June every year. We talk a lot about our environment. But in practice, we damage it. Man exploits his environment to satisfy his greed. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, "The earth has enough for everyone's need, but not for everyone's greed." We have not paid any heed to these words. 'No bird fouls its nest,' goes a proverb. Man has plundered this planet for long. Now the planet has taken revenge. A breaking point has reached. Environment is highly polluted. This pollution causes instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to our physical system. Water pollution is a particular kind of environmental pollution.


Water is a life-giving natural resource. Water covers 71% of earth's surface. But of that, only 3% is non-saline. And that 3% is distributed through glaciers, rivers, lakes and groundwater. Human body is primarily composed of water. So water is a fundamental source of life on earth. All life forms that breed need water. The irony is that humanity is still indifferent to pollution of water. 


Water pollution contaminants into a water body. The presence of some foreign organic, inorganic, biological, and physical substances or properties degrades the quality of water. Thus, the normal property of water is affected. Water pollution not only changes physical properties of water, but also makes it acidic or saline. It is due to the presence of dissolved or suspended chemical pollutants in water.


This pollution mainly occurs due to sewerage, and industrial waste, agricultural pollutants, and radioactive materials. Rainfall saturated with aerial contaminants like gases and dust also pollute water bodies. In many countries, electricity is produced by nuclear energy. It needs gallons of cold water to reduce waste heat. The hot water thrown into the sources of water has an adverse effect on the aquatic eco-system. Radioactive heat aggravates the problem of water pollution. The agricultural waste encourages algal growth and contaminates water. Various human wastes contribute to water pollution, too. 


Scarcity of pure drinking water and sanitation is now the single largest cause of illness worldwide. According to experts, by 2020, many people will die due to water-borne diseases. The planet earth is home to nearly 7.8 billion people. Each human being needs a minimum quantity of water. In our country, according to the environmental experts, 14 main rivers like the Ganga, the Damodar, the Hooghly, the Jamuna, the Godavari, and the Cauvery are highly polluted. We are told that the ancient civilisation of Mohenjodaro ceased to exist mainly because of the problem of drinking water. The same fate awaits us if we do not take the issue of water pollution seriously. The impurities of water are being treated through an advanced waste treatment method, which includes removal of suspended solids, dissolved salts and pathogens. The colloidal particles are removed through the coagulation process. Dwindling aquatic resources are throwing a great challenge to humanity across the world.


To transform all the remedies into a reality, the key players - the government and people -  must make combined and sincere efforts. Only such efforts today can make all the difference tomorrow.

Noise Pollution


Environment means the soil, water, and air around us. The World Environment Day is observed on 5th June every year. We talk a lot about protecting our environment. But in practice, We damage it. Man exploits his environment to satisfy his greed. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, "The earth has enough for everyone's need, but not for everyone's greed." But we have thrown these wise words to the winds. 'No bird fouls its nest', goes a proverb. Man has plundered this planet for long, and now the planet is taking revenge. A breakdown has occurred. The environment has been highly polluted. Now a question arises as to what is environmental pollution. Environmental pollution is the introduction of contaminants to the environment. It causes instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to the physical systems. This pollution is broadly of four types - soil pollution, water pollution, air pollution, and noise pollution.

Noise is a disagreeable sound. It is disagreeable because it disturbs in various ways. It increases fatigue and decreases efficiency. Noise pollution is the presence of unwanted loud sound in the environment. Industries and vehicles are the two main sources of noise pollution. Vehicular movements aggravate it. The non-industrial sources include street noise and sound from household gadgets. The use of loudspeakers after a certain permissible limit aggravates sound pollution. Public demonstrations contribute to noise pollution as well. Loudly played sound systems, televisions, and bursting of crackers that produce deafening noise are some of the major sources of sound pollution.


Noise pollution creates problems for all. Noise affects the nerves and heart, disturbs sleep. Sudden loud noise can cause acute damage to the ear-drum in the internal ear. A man exposed to prolonged noise pollution may suffer from loss of hearing. Noise pollution causes psychological changes. Blood pressure increases. Health problems like giddiness, nausea, and insomnia become frequent. Sharp muscular contractions take place. It may lead to congenital defects in unborn children. Noise results in low concentration and poor attention among students.


The law courts across our country are active crusaders in controlling noise pollution. That is why, noise-free equipment, rubberized material, anti vibration pads are now used in running machines. Restrictions have been imposed to lessen pollution construction work. Unnecessary honking of horns is banned. But the government has many miles to go before it can curb noise pollution. Noise free zones should be ensured around residential areas, educational institutions, and health centers. Development of green belts in vast metropolises and industrial towns should be the answer to noise pollution. Side by side, a mass effort in this regard is also required. There should be a combined effort to trigger off an environmental awareness campaign. An awareness about the environment today can make all the difference tomorrow.
