सफाई अभियान की शुरुआत !

२ अक्टोबर से भारत में एक सफाई अभियान की शुरुआत हो रही है. मुझे लगता है की यह एक अच्छा कदम है और हर एक भारत वासी को इसमे जुड़ना चाहिए. आज के हालात इतने खराब हैं की आप किसी भी सरकारी दफ़्तर में जाएँ, किसी सरकारी अस्पताल में जाएँ, या किसी भी पब्लिक प्लेस में जाएँ, चारों तरफ गंदगी के ढेर मिलेंगे. और तो और, पान क़ी पीक की पिचकारी तो ऐसी चित्रकारी करती है की दीवारों की हालत देख कर रोना आ जाए. सड़को के किनारों को बेशर्मी से पब्लिक यरिनल बना देना तो एक आम बात है. 


सबसे ज़्यादा सफाई की ज़रूरत है रेलवे लाइन्स की. रोज सुबह जब स्टेशन से ट्रेन निकलती है तो बड़ों बड़ों को भी बाहर देखने में शर्म आ जाती है क्योंकि इतना बड़ा ओपन, खुला टाय्लेट शायद दुनिया में कहीं भी नही होगा. 


इसके साथ साथ, यमुना के किनारों पर जहाँ गुजरात की तरह लोगों को घूमने का आनंद मिलना चाहिए, वहाँ पर झुग्गी झोंपड़ी वाले इतना गंद फैलाते हैं की घूमना तो बड़ी दूर की बात है, वहाँ से निकलना भी हो तो नाक पे रुमाल रखना पड़ता है. इन सब के साथ साथ, यमुना में किसी भी तरह का कूड़ा, गंद, पर्दूषण के केमिकल्स के फेंकने पर रोक लग जानी चाहिए.


गली मुहल्लों के खततों की सफाई की नितांत आवशयकता है क्योंकि सफाई करमचारी तो सुबह अपना काम कर के चले जाते हैं और बचा हुआ कूड़ा सारा दिन उधर रहने वालों के लिए और उधर से गुजरने वालों के लिए मुसीबत बन जाता है.

इस सब के साथ साथ, लोगो की मेनटॅलिटी भी बदलने की ज़रूरत है क्योंकि विदेश जाने पर हम बड़े सॉफ सुथरे होने का ढोंग करते हैं और अपनी ज़मीन पे पहुँचते ही अपनी औकात पे आ जाते हैं. मुझे लगता है की विदेशो की तर्ज़ पे, भारत में भी कूड़ा डालने वालों के खिलाफ सखत क़ानून होने चाहिए.


इस मुहिम में सफलता सिर्फ़ तब मिल सकती है जब हम सब लोग इस मुहिम में जुड़ें क्योंकि ऐसा करने से हम किसी और का नही, बल्कि सिर्फ़ अपना भला करेंगे. 

दिल्ली की सभी रेसिडेंट वेलफेर असोसियेशन्स को भी खुल कर सामने आना चाहिए.


धन्यवाद

Contaminated water for the last over 3 weeks ?

Dear Vohra ji,

Our colony has been getting contaminated water for the last over 3 weeks.  It is reported that main sewerage system near Madhuban Chowk on Vikas Marg gave way resulting blockage of entire sewerage system towards Laxmi Nagar side.  Due to leakages in sewer line as well as water lines caused the entire problem.  With repeated vigorous follow up by us and other neighbouring colonies, DJB put some pumps to drain out the sewerage system, but even after three weeks, they have not been able to identify the leakages.  Many residents fell sick due to contaminated water.  They are using bottled water, but how long is a big question.

DJB has failed to give proper satisfactory reply.  This is the state of affairs after paying 60% of the bill amount for "sewer maintenance' plus service charge and other taxes.  We request the CEO, DJB and the LG to take immediate strict action against those who are playing with the health of the public.  We even approached the Union Health Minister, Dr Harsh Vardan, but no action seems to have been taken from his end as well.

Pollutants pose health risk at Anand Vihar : Hindustan Times






































News story after the Lungs check up camp at Anand vihar & Jhilmil by East Delhi RWAs Joint Front i.e. a Federation of RWAs.

Finnish expert links cell phones to cancer

NEW DELHI: Finnish scientist Dr Dariusz Leszczynski has criticised India-born oncologist Dr Siddhartha Mukherjee’s claim that there was no link between cell phone radiation and cancer.
Dr Leszczynski was part of a global team that labelled cell phone radiation as carcinogenic in 2011.
“I don’t know how he said this. I don’t know how well he is read and how much of expertise he has in cell phone radiations. I don’t think he read the hundreds of studies on cell phone radiations. He is an oncologist and I don’t know how much of research he has done on cell phone radiation,” said Dr Dariusz Leszczynski, who is also chief editor of ‘Frontiers in Radiation and Health’ and an adjunct professor, department of biochemistry and biotechnology, Helsinki University, Finland.
“Extensive use of cell phone for more than 30 minutes a day for 10 years could increase the risk of brain cancer. There is enough evidence from studies to substantiate it,” he said.

Lungs check up camp in East Delhi : CCN

Lungs check up camp in East Delhi !

Today, we had Lungs check up camp by CIPLA at two places i.e. Anand Vihar & the Vishwakarma nagar – Jhilmil. Two tests that were done today included the Peak Flow Meter Test & the Spirometry Test as below : 

Peak Flow

1. Peak Flow Meter Test :

A Peak Flow Meter (Breathe-o meter) is a simple, affordable, hand held device which helps diagnose breathing problems and asthma in children and adults. It is also used as an instrument to monitor your progress when you are under treatment for asthma.

Just as you have a BP instrument to check blood pressure and the Glucometer for diabetics, the Peak Flow Meter (Breathe-o meter) is like a thermometer for asthma. As a patient, you will have to blow into the mouthpiece of the device, and the reading will be taken to check your lung power. Most doctors have the device in their clinic but it is also available at most leading chemists if you want to keep your asthma in check.

Spirometry

2. Spirometry Test

A Spirometry Test is a more sensitive and sophisticated test which detects the signs of asthma early. The Spirometer is used to measure how much air your lungs can hold and how efficiently the air moves into and out of your lungs. In other words, it gives a good indication of your lung power and gives you accurate details about your breathing capacity. The lab or the doctor conducting the test will give you a printed graph of your reading, just as you get a graph when you do your ECG test.

Both the Peak Flow Meter (Breathe-o meter) and Spirometry tests are used to diagnose asthma and also help you measure your progress when your asthma is under control.

However, since these tests are not recommended for children below six years of age, you as a parent have to work together with your pediatrician, to make sure that your child’s asthma is diagnosed early and correctly, by paying close attention to your family history and triggers. You will also be required to visit your doctor regularly so that together you can monitor your child’s progress.

The detailed report is being expected in a day.

Lungs Check up camp in East Delhi - Anand Vihar


Lungs Check up camp in East Delhi - Jhilmil


POLLUTION IMPACT :

What can pollution do?

Different kinds of pollutants can hurt our bodies in different ways. However, some dangerous health effects come from the most common air pollutants. Here are a few:
  • Premature death,
  • Shortness of breath and chest pain,
  • Wheezing and coughing,
  • Increased risk of asthma attacks, and
  • Increased treatment or hospitalization of people with lung diseases, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Who is at risk?

Someone in every family is likely to be at risk from air pollution. Does someone you love belong to one of these vulnerable groups?
  • People with lung diseases, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis and emphysema;
  • Children and teenagers;
  • People who work or exercise outdoors ;
  • Adults 65 years old and older;
  • People with a cardiovascular disease;
  • People with diabetes;
  • People with low incomes; and
  • "Responders" – otherwise healthy individuals who feel the impact of air pollution at lower levels of exposure than the average person.
Please join us at the Lungs check up camp on 14th Sept. at Anand Vihar & Jhilmil. Details already posted on the blog. Next schedule of other areas to be announced soon.

Thanks

Cause of air pollution !

Out of order DTC buses on FLYOVERS  lying for several minnutes are the main cause of increase in pollution level.The buses are not removed from the flyovers leading to long jams & increased production of toxic airpollutants.Buses are repaired on site by mechanic who have to come from the specific depot to which the bus belongs.It takes along time.This process must be improved.

Other cause is mismanagement of traffic signals by inadequately trained personnels.The signal is turned red when many vehicles are still to cross without any logical reason.Once the vehicles have started & are in motion ,it will take only few more seconds for many of them to cross.Maximum numbers should be allowed to cross when it is green.The signal lighting system should be managed in a way which gives maximum benefit to the people & causes least air pollution.

Pot holes just ahead of crossing & on the crossing slows the speed of clearence of vehicle & should be immediately repaired.Nearby RWA members should take up this responsibility.Bhagidari can publish the name of rwa supervising a purticular crossing.If each crossing is supervised by members of one rwa ,the traffic problem & the resulting loss of man hours ,increased air polution can decrease

Dr VK AGGARWAL

Polluting & Unparked Delhi !

There is no doubt that both these issues are making DELHI as non living city. However if we analyze these problems to find out how is responsible then I find that the residents are most responsible. 

1, Who built buildings without the provision of proper parking eg SANT NAGAR SOUTH DELHI
2. WHO misuse parking spaces for living (car garrage in residential units for living) basements for storage/ shopping / offices etc- violating rules.
3. not testing vehicles for pollution, using mixed fuel, parking without caring for planned parking lots close to own shops/ residences
4. NOt providing sufficient no of parking spaces as each space costs more then car cost
5. permitting mixed land use with following all norms and use streets for parking.

Polluting Delhi !

Greetings!

If that be it so why can we not resolve here on this blog the following
1) Stop buying Cars and sell all at home etc except one
2) Use Metro
3) Ban E Rickshaws as they are bigger Pollutant when they dispense  with there  BATTERIES at your back in THREE MONTHS usage as it contains heavy Pollutants   which would pollute the ground water too as in Surat etc.Lets go for human pedaled Rickshaws as last mile vehicle as in the west.Besides they stael power at Rs25Cr/per month by kattiay usage and we pay for the same so annually  we foot Rs 500Cr and the same will be reflected in already high  Tariffs.These e-rickshaws can ply at outer eg at Noida,Akshdam,Fardiabad, guragaon where there is no last mile connectivity. 
4) Let us pedal and use bicycles( powered ones as in Japan) and ask the Lt Gov to make IMMEDIATELY 'CYCLE TRACKS' in the Master Plan under review with 'Parking Stations" with complete infrastructure.This would reduce pollution as well address obesity and all life style diseases in one go etc 
5)All cemented space in front of your houses/offices/pedestrian path ways(If any) after encroachments lets us Plant 'FRUIT TREES' not Eucalyptus etc with heavy foliage and use a 'Plant" as the 'GIFT" for all occasions.As we have in Lyutens Delhi,the British  did that so why we can not ape them as we ape all of Western culture??
6) Many more Sir.

But are we willing to sacrifice our easy life styles for our progeny or make them  gradually die with slow asphyxia with this POLLUTION.

Choices are yours dear.If China can be where it is by pedaling  away why we can not?? 

Vnade Matram!
Jai Bharat!
