As Citizens of Great Nation India, there is need to make sure that in today’s scenario religious ceremonies need to be Environment friendly. Religious rituals since ancient times never had involvement of plastic (a recent world product) , non-biodegrable materials, there have always been inclusion of flowers, medicinal plants leaves🌿 and parts, rice, turmeric, various resins, plant products in plant based containers. These plant based products all are totally biodegradable, add nutrients to water and act as food for fauna and flora.
Ganesh Visarjan, Durga Visarjan, and various other religious rituals involves taking a dip in water for cleaning individuals’ body and soul followed by immersion of the idols. These idols set for worshipping are immersed and left in water bodies that reduce Dissolved Oxygen and bringing additional load of BOD, COD, TSS, TDS, heavy metals, etc etc.
Government trying hard by bringing new regulations and stringent Standards, to control Pollution and Conserve Natural resources and Environment for present and future generations. Governments around the world and in India also provides maximum infrastructure support to make sure that regulation and standards are abides by for Environment Protection. As individuals and responsible citizens of India 🇮🇳 it is basic responsibility of all residents, not to throw pollutants including wastes like non degradable plastics, domestic waste, industry waste in or near water bodies. Hope future generations have a clean and atleast similar state of Environment what prevails today.
Take a pledge : Don’t throw non-degradable plastics, or any wastes to water bodies.
