Evade pollution, embrace mother Earth
In the wake of increasing air pollution JICA has been contributing to ease the air pollution through its various projects and activities, writes Puja Banerjee.
We live on Earth which is the only planet known to have an environment, where air and water are the two basic things sustaining life. Without air and water, Earth would be like the other planet – no man, no animals, no plants. The biosphere in which living beings have their sustenance has oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, argon and water vapour. All these are well balanced to ensure and help a healthy growth of life in the animal world. This balance does not only help the life-cycles of animals and plants, but also creates the perennial sources of minerals and energies without which the human civilisation of today could not be built. It is for this balance that the human life and other forms of existence have flourished on earth for so many thousands of years. Concerns have risen about air pollution in Indian cities in the recent past.
