“WASTE SAYS WHAT?”
THE OVERLOOKING OF ETHNIC WASTES IN INDIA
The topic above signifies the condition of India by ethical wastes produced in India everyday which is also a major factor in degrading the environment on a great extent.
I know it’s a boring topic for some of you because many people already know many things about this niche but still something is left out from your context is described here. In India our academic background is full of information which teaches us about the problem of nature and how to tackle with it. The water conservation technique and the waste management techniques.
It an unfortunate thing about our country that even if learning lots of valuable conservation techniques about the environment , all the knowledge of every individual went into piles of paper in exchange with few numbers to score in exams.
Either home or school, no-one carries a behaviour of teaching a practical sessions of water conservation and tree plantation and why is the need? The biggest question in mind.
The main thing lie in the fact that what could be the reason behind developing this behaviour except scoring marks, are the youth of India worried for their survival strategies for coming future years?
If anyone worries for their survival in the next 20years, then they can change the today’s scenario but the problem is we don’t care because our society has made us careless.
The use of water and air is infinite and it will never end. Everyone on earth need it for their purpose for the survival but how many of us care for its source from where we can get it?
The situation in which piles and piles of wastes are generated every day is only by our livelihood which contains all the natural resources we are using. But we overlook it by saying that wastes will be disposed automatically. Yes it’s true that it will dispose but leaving thousands of diseases within its disposing time.
The reformation policies about water conservation and preservance had created a new peak of rules and regulation but, how many of us know about it? And how many of us want to know?
The answer is all known to everyone.
In India there exist several forms of waste creating techniques which is practiced in India from ancient times which uses thousands litres of water and other natural things in the name of belief to make the god happy and degrading and polluting the environment.
Though India is full of rituals and different tradition, there are certain things which are hidden from people of India and when I found it, I felt that now also people in India are not extinct for the welfare of water & natural resources.
There are certain facts stated below which can be used to give a new angle to the thinking process that how could the resources like water , milk , leaves , flower and fruits are utilized which are placed on the foots of traditional Lords of Indian ritual mythology can be saved in huge quantity every day.
A true stated fact about the shiv temple in India that in the month of July in each “ Shiv Temple around 1000 litres of water is used in worshipping and in most of the temple there are no channels which can dispose the water and all the fresh water flow into the sewage.
But as we know everything changes with the time and new face of innovation is implemented in India in some temples.
- In Taadkeshwar Temple, Jaipur, a proper channel is built which stores all the water which is used in worship. The water is moved through a proper way in which it get stored beneath the earth surface which maintain the ground water level. From 13 years, there are about 300 temples which accepts this water conservation technique. The process involves digging a 30 feet deep pit in which water is passed through sand filters and then stored.
- The most amazing thing developed with this ritual that the milk which is used in worship is stored in 5 feet deep pit which is worship is stored in 5 feet deep pit which is used to make “Prasad “in the temple.
We don’t even know that around 4.5 crore litres of water is used in temples during month of July & August. Using the new innovative technique helped a lot in reducing water bone diseases and in water wastage.
- In “Dwadas Jyotirling “, Temple, Lucknow same technique is used with 40 feet deep pit to store water & milk separately.
- “Bel- patra and flowers which are used in temple are used to make organic fertilizer.
- Flowers used in Mankeshwar Temple, Lucknow are used to make scented sticks for selling.
- In Maa Rajeshwari Temple, Madhya Pradesh , the flowers are used to make organic humus by using decomposers which is further used in agricultural land to increase productivity.
- In many temples of India the idea of preparing vermin-compost is accepted in past 10 years.
All the above points might have been a highlight in some area but , what for those small cities and places where still these kinds of wastes are creating a polluted environment. Thousands of litres of water is disposed to the sewage line and many other situations which is responsible for the nature’s degradation.
If the Indian political views which surmounts these decision, will only shout to develop major cities then who will take action for smaller ones. The people living in small cities will not be acquainted with these innovative ideas of recycling wastes and if they move to metro cities then they will create the same environment and they will be cursed but overall the system will be the one to be blamed who could not create a proper awareness to every part of India that how everyone can apply these things in their locality.
My main message from this article was to create an awareness among individual who are working in these field to spread its knowledge to every part of India. So that each one of us can contribute equally to see a clean India in future.
India is a land of rituals and tradition lies in the heart of people, no one will leave it for many years. All the holy places will be increased every year and wastes will also be increased and to dispose it in effective manner is our duty.
There are lot more to talk to waste and what but for now it’s an end of this word session. I hope these words will affect your thinking rather than looking for the spelling & grammatical mistake by the top level intellectual.
