    Do you welcome the crackers ban imposed by court during Deepavali in Delhi ?

    In a far reaching decision, the Supreme court has ordered total ban of sale crackers for the ensuing Deepavali as this ban is aimed at reducing already over polluted Delhi to mitigate the problem to some extent. Though some cracker traders have objected to this order, general public has welcomed this decision. With this order there are every chances of others states seeking such directions from court to ban the crackers for ever. But for Chetan Bhagat, Deepavali without crackers cannot be imagined ? Is that so ?

    I welcome the ban because I have seen Delhi go down under a cover of smog. It is difficult to breathe that air. I have young nephews, who need nebulization, ever so frequently, because the air is toxic. Last night, I watched a panel of eight eminent doctors, who practice in leading hospitals, in Delhi; discuss how pollution is destroying the lungs of even non-smokers. These were all Hindu doctors, perhaps as sensitive to the issue as every other devout Hindu. But, they all supported the ban. One doctor stated that he can see the condition of lungs because he has the means to and that young children today have black lungs. Another said that the number of patients with respiratory problems goes up manifold during this period.

    No one knows the long-term impact of breathing in polluted air, but if we can control something, then why not.

    I had initiated a thread sometime last week, asking members if they would say no to crackers. I hadn't touched the pollution angle, but it is definitely a cause for concern. Anyway, the responses were disheartening.

    Yes certainly, Delhi residents would understand and welcome it if they are made aware of the risks. Delhi was ranked in the ten cities in the world with the worst air pollution in 2016 and it's slightly better in 2017. However the limits of particulate mater is around 10 times more than WHO standards.

    What prompted the ban ? Alarming air quality of Delhi even by Indian standards ( truth may be far more worse).
    Crackers apart from noise, worsens the air quality and winter makes it even worse.

    Apart from the exhaustive list of chemicals that people are forced to breathe in, the effects are also reflected by the increased number of patients going to hospitals or getting admitted for worsening of respiratory and chest diseases.

  • #611275
    #611271: sorry missed or overlooked your thread as it was not reflected in the forum posts from everyone.
    You were spot on. I think if we combined both threads or repost yours with the court ban, I'm sure we'll have more responses.

  • #611277
    1. No, I don't welcome the ban imposed by a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice A.K. Sikri.

    2. So far as pollution in Delhi is concerned, The Supreme Court should have tried to control those factors which are causing air pollution in Delhi throughout the year, instead of the factor which causes pollution on a single day.

    3. I don't think the people of Delhi would implement this ban.

  • #611278
    I support the ban due to the facts brought out in the above responses. We need to open our eyes to the harmful effects of such practices and need to support the same. Bursting of crackers and other fireworks may have been okay till, may be, a few years back but with very less space for fresh air now, the smoke that is emanated from these crackers remain in the air for long and causes much harm to the people.

    Regarding Chetan Bhagat's response, I would just like to say that he is trying to be politically correct keeping in line with the present socio-political atmosphere in the Country; his words are no longer taken seriously as it used to be earlier.

    Mr Partha, it is a different question whether the people would follow the order strictly or not, but it will certainly have some effect. And let us not forget the fact the Judiciary had always voiced its concern over the growing pollution in the Capital but the action has to be taken by the administrative authorities. I am reminded of the odd-even number policy that was tried to be effected by Sri Arvind Kejriwal; did it materialize? We, the people, are habituated to make complaints and do not bother to comply with orders that may redress our complaints.

    It is good that Supreme Court thought about pollution at least. Cigarette smoking in public places is prohibited. Is it stopped? When I was in Delhi for a day last month observed people having their smoke very happily by standing in the bus station near the airport. Similarly here also people may not completely stop consuming crackers on that Deepavali. Is this ban on selling or consuming? Similarly is this ban only for Deepavali? They can sell after Deepavali for other functions and occasions. There should be a clarity in this. The post is not having that clarity. If it is only for Deepavali, it is not correct. It should be always and for everybody.
    There are many other issues which are causing such a serious damage to the environment in Delhi. Why is the court not addressing those issues? What is the root cause and are we eliminating the problem from roots? With Deepavali crackers, the pollution may go from 90% to 92%. But not from 0% to 92%. What are the actions court is taking to bring down the level from 90% to allowable limits? This will not be addressed by anyone.
    Anyhow if we feel it is a good beginning for pollution control, let us go ahead and save our money which is being used for crackers.

    It is a welcome move and I do hope that in the coming years more such actions are taken to bring down the pollution level.

    Odd, even rule was also a very creative move, had it been continued it would have definitely had an impact in the long run.

  • #611282
    I really appreciate that the court, at last, has brought such order. Most of us don't take an individual decision like Deepavali is a festival of light and diyas but people spend so much money on crackers than on diyas. If such order is brought by the government then they will realize. On our own, we never realize that it pollutes's the environment and lot of health issues and even very dangerous to kids if precaution is not taken. I am very happy about the supreme court order. In fact, such dangerous products should not be sold only.

  • #611284
    It is a welcome decision by the court. But we need to see how the people of Delhi will take it. Deepavali won't be Diwali without any cracker sound. Even the lighters eminate much smoke that is harmful to us. We will know the after effects of this order only after Deepavali.

  • #611286
    I have already allocated money (from my meagre resources) to purchase crackers on Diwali. Although I personally don't like the sound of crackers and prefer lighting, I would purchase crackers like many other Delhi-ites. After all, Diwali comes only once in a year.

    In 1667, Aurangzheb issued a 'firman' banning fire-crackers from his kingdom. The 'firman' can be seen at Bikaner museum. Exactly 350 years later, on the eve of Diwali, another 'firman' has been issued.

    In 1667, people did protest and paid with their lives. In 2017, some people welcome the 'firman'.

    Ban on crackers may be headlines for 1 or 2 days, but that won't be solution for pollution. Why don't the same judges ask people to use public transport and ban on personal vehicles?
    Thanks,

    First Dahi Handi, then Jallikattu and now Diwali.

    Let's not question it. Let's not speak against it. Let's not raise an eyebrow. Let us keep our eyes closed and head hanging downwards. Let's not utter a single word of protest. Let's remain silent. They can ban the sound of our voice, but can they ban silence?

    They can ban lights. But can they ban the darkness of our mind caused by these orders?

  • #611506
    Yes, as it is an order from the Supreme Court. But personally I feel there is no enjoyment without bursting crackers during Diwali.

    I just read an interview of Harpriya Padmanabhan, who represented the people (her son included), seeking the ban. According to her, "Firecrackers came into the country in the 1920s when the Nadar brothers had set up the industry in Sivakasi. Till then you never had any firecrackers being burst on Diwali. It's a very recent, 20th century phenomenon in our country." (sic).

    That being said, it's heartening to see school children coming out in support of this cause.

    I think all those opposing the ban lack sensitivity. Would their reactions be the same if they were to rush their loved ones to the emergency room?

    I once suffered an anaphylactic shock on Diwali night. The trigger was something I ate, but those few minutes till I reached the emergency room were the most frightful. Pulling out the car from the garage was a problem because the courtyard was filled with people lighting crackers, who couldn't be bothered, with a car backing up. The drive to a nearby hospital was another ordeal because the narrow streets were filled with people, bursting crackers, who became agitated with my husband's persistent blowing of the horn. Fortunately, the hospital (Hindu Mission Hospital) was open and I was administered a life-saving drug before I was taken to the Military Hospital, where I was kept in the ICU.

    Let me add here that I have burst crackers on Diwali, played Holi, sat through Shabad kirtan, had my feet washed and collected the red chuniris on kanjak puja, attended haldi-kumkum ceremonies and more.

    No offence meant to Ms. Harpriya Padmanabhan, but her statement proves her 'liberal ignorance'. There is a book named Hutom Pyachar Naksha' written by Kaliprasanna Singha in Bengali. This book described Calcutta of 18th century. It has been written that firecrackers were very much used during festivals. In fact Europeans came to visit the Pujas or marriages of Bengali landlords to enjoy the show of firecrackers.

    There are many historical evidences of use of firecrackers during medieval period. The firman of Aurangzhib banning the firecrackers (kept at Bikaner Museum) is one such evidence.

    The interviewer could have asked the lady to spare some time to read reliable historical books instead giving the interview.

    "The interviewer could have asked the lady to spare some time to read reliable historical books instead giving the interview."

    I wonder why no one contradicted the lady in question because she most certainly would have brought the same up during the arguments she presented. Perhaps, it was them who should have read up on history.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing the piece of history about Aurangzeb banning crackers. It made me check the net, and I had a good laugh, reading the twitter comments that popped up.

    In fact, my apartment association used to organise a fireworks display on Diwali, but it was stopped a few years ago, keeping in mind the air and noise pollution we were contributing to. This year, one of the residents (from the majority community) has asked for a ban on crackers, within the complex. People are, thankfully, awakening to the real problem, instead of being stuck with petty politics and making this a communal or a 'majority community' issue. Remember, toxic pollutants aren't selective; they affect everyone's lungs and health.

    Are fireworks and firecrackers the same thing! I have seen firework displays, but a display of firecrackers, never witnessed one, in all these years, and I have attended many Diwali melas and Pujas. People flock to see the dazzling fireworks.

    No, fireworks and firecrackers are not the same thing, but both exist now and existed in the past also.

    Many people can laugh but fortunately/unfortunately that can't destroy the evidence.

  • #611550
    Some people want a ban, some don't want a ban. Some feel what about pollution from the vehicles, industries etc.
    So we do agree that firecrackers do cause pollution. We are also aware of a rise in chest infections and asthma attacks.

    So why not a. support the ban and say we will say no to crackers if the government tackles the other major polluters, b. if we still strongly believe that we should burst crackers, honestly agree to reduce the amount we are going to burst ( Eg: if each one agrees to give up say 50% of what they burst last year, then we would have much less pollution)

  • #611647
    What evidence Partha? I can't just take your word for it, for that would be outright foolish on my part. Even Aurangzeb's 'farman' that you quoted, speaks of 'atishbazi' which means fireworks.

    Natrajan,

    "So we do agree that firecrackers do cause pollution....chest infections and asthma attacks."

    I appreciate this coming from someone in the healthcare industry. What I do not understand is the caveat that you propose, when you say "…if the government tackles major polluters". Do you suggest that people gamble with their health and do their bit only "if" the government does its share? In my opinion, the people of Delhi should take the initiative and do their bit. It is after all their lives and their city.

    Reducing the amount – would that mean that the life of my lungs would be prolonged because everyone burst 50% fewer crackers? I still see that as a reason to worry. It's akin to slow poisoning.

    I think everyone should act responsibly. People need to be sensitised because even if they don't have visible signs of lung damage, their lungs are being affected. People who live in sheltered homes create the mess and step indoors, into safe environments. Imagine the poor, who have to inhale the pollutants from the '1000 ki ladi' that some rich bloke sets on fire.

    And yes the Government must take measures, such as the 'odd-even' policy that was introduced. It helped, even though the sceptics laughed. People are suffering and I hope that everyone begins looking at it from that perspective. It has to be a collective effort, the purpose fails when we begin giving a communal angle to everything. It is only when people come together; lend their support, that things can be achieved. But, we have to stop being petty, I think it is the intelligent and adult thing to do. We stopped 'sati', we allowed widow-marriage, we are going after child-marriage. So, we can do it.

    #611647 Both reflect a practical approach to an Indian problem.

    "…if the government tackles major .... This is a reflection of some people in India. I call this the 'Indian mentality' if I have to change, let the others also change, if I'm a culprit and I'm paying for it, why let the other's go scot free, while bargaining for a price (Eg: customers says 80 rupees and the seller says 100 rupees), the seller often says, sir- you come up by 10 rupees, I'll come down by 10 rupees, both are happy.In this scenario - if the Government or people, vice-versa state that we will change provided you change, both benefits.

    would that mean that the life of my lungs would be prolonged because everyone burst 50% fewer crackers?
    This is again like different shades of grey between black and white. Change doesn't come easy. In the very ISC website, some want crackers, some do not want crackers.So both are at 'loggerheads'. So if the cracker friendly person says I'm ready to give up 50% I'll be happy because at least we have reduced the problem.

    full cooperation is ideal from all sides but my views mean that at least we can start.

  • #611657
    I am quite amused by the stand taken by Partha (though not unusual and is as expected). I agree and respect your stand as a staunch Hindu, but why do you close your eyes and ears to real facts? That is something discouraging and let me tell you, blind faith doesn't lead you anywhere. You need to be fair, please.

    I am unable to understand your requirement of hitting at the 'Mussalman' each and every time, irrespective of the topic being discussed.

  • #611667
    Amusement can't hide the logic. I reiterate that the Supreme Court should have tried to control those factors which are causing air pollution in Delhi throughout the year, instead of the factor which causes pollution on a single day. And why only Delhi, the Supreme Court should have given direction to every State Government to control polluting factors all over India, especially in big cities.

    Because of this amusement, the so-called intellectuals are now ridiculed everywhere. Nobody bothers to listen to them anymore.

    You can not control the pollution just in a single day.

    Last year after Diwali Delhi
    had air pollution levels 14-16 times higher than safe limits, many schools were shut down
    visibility in many areas reduced to 200 meters.
    The cracker related smoke haze lasted for a week, the smog did not disperse due to the cold air
    Many people with chronic respiratory illnesses took few weeks-few months to recover.
    Last year after Diwali, Chanakyapuri (better area) had a PM 2.5 value of 999!! ( Delhi's safe limit was PM2.5 value of 60!)

    These are facts that are sad to read, worse for the people actually living in Delhi.
    While it's easy to say that one day ban is not going to do much of a change or harm, it's important for Delhi as it cannot take any more air pollution around Diwali.

  • #611764
    Just read this news this morning. I have been to this place, hence I thought I'll post this

    In Erode district, there is a small bird sanctuary (Vellode) wherein migratory birds are nesting.This year the surrounding 10 villages have again decided not to burst any crackers during Diwali for the sake of the nesting birds and their chicks. This is their practice for many years. May not make much of a difference as the busy towns continue bursting crackers but the villagers are doing their little to help the birds.

    There are atleast two more villages in Tamilnadu who for many years, for the sake of birds do not burst crackers during Diwali.

  • #611768
    The example stated by #61175514 is not apt here, I would say the scenario is like this, it's like a poison which is affecting many human lives. One day of bursting crackers in the streets of Delhi and not just Delhi everywhere is more than enough to send people to the hospital.

    As stated by Mr. Natarajan, the aftermaths of bursting cracking prolonged for many days, it was not a one-day affair. How can we be insensitive to the people and kids around? It is totally a welcome move by the supreme court. Pollution cannot be controlled in a day, but the amount of pollution generated in a single surpasses everything and causes so much harm so if steps can be taken to curb that why not go ahead with it.

  • #611770
    Some members are arguing with the fact that last year pollution content had increased dramatically post Dipawali so this is a welcome move by the supreme court.
    Suppose on last Deepawali Milord ate too much that caused him stomach pain or food poisoning so does it mean that he will keep fasting this year because he had horrible experience last time. It's ridiculous that the same Milord is just focusing on a single day instead of looking for some permanent solution.

  • #611772
    You got it #611770, wouldn't he avoid whatever caused him food poisoning or would he again indulge in it which will again cause him harm?

    A permanent solution would take time, instead of taking mountain steps, baby steps can be initiated and gradually bigger steps can be taken which will be more effective.

  • #611773
    Yesterday I read a report which stated that burning husks at this time by the farmers of Haryana and Punjab is more responsible for pollution in Delhi. Hon'ble Supreme Court has not given any direction to stop burning husks in Punjab and Haryana.

  • #611778
    Well spotted Mr.Partha.
    The burning of paddy apparently contributes to 35% of Delhi's seasonal air pollution.Rules are in place, as usual not followed.

    1.NGT(National Green Tribunal) for the last 4 years has imposed ban over the burning of the waste of the paddy fields in Delhi and Haryana.

    2. Accepting that stubble burning is a major cause of pollution for the NCR, officials in Haryana said they have started to enforce the order against the practice. Karmchand, the Deputy Director (Agriculture) of Kurukshetra told The Pioneer, "In the rabi season of 2017, we penalised 54 farmers and the total penalty generated was Rs 1,45,000; in the kharif season of 2016, 207 farmers were penalised and we collected Rs 4,58,000 in fines."

    http://www.dailypioneer.com/todays-newspaper/delhi-chokes-haryanas-burning-fields-smoke.html


    3. September 2017 -HC asks Delhi, neighbouring states to implement ban on burning of crop residue
    Delhi high court directs Punjab, Haryana, UP, Rajasthan and Delhi to implement directions issued under the Air Pollution Act to ban burning of crop residues.
    http://www.livemint.com/Politics/FGkI9zIWeP55HmKtSn37lO/HC-asks-Delhi-neighbouring-states-to-implement-ban-on-burni.html

    I think people are aware but the issues are complex and interlinked with politics, fear of hurting sentiments of people ( farmers and cracker lovers), financial resources needed to provide alternatives to the major pollutants ( for instance the burning of crop stubble is far more cheaper than trying to remove them manually).

    Finally it up to us to think and act in the larger interests of people and see what is practically possible.

    #611712 If someone face food poisoning he will leave eating for good or will not eat the dish that caused him suffer?

    I would have welcomed if Milord had banned some particular kind of crackers that add more to the pollution but here Milord is going for complete fasting !

  • #611785
    Which particular crackers do you suggest? All crackers are equally responsible and contributing to the pollution to a very extreme level. I don't think you can compare it to complete fasting, here its been avoided, precautions are been taken to reduce the harmful effect. Stop breathing for few seconds you will realize the pain of people who are suffering from breathing problems and asthma. They feel suffocated for not one day, it prolongs for days if not weeks.

    That is the effect diwali crackers brings upon them.

  • #611787
    It is definitely a welcome move by the court though it is considerably delayed.

    Unfortunately these are the decisions which Govt should have taken earlier rather than waiting for the court.

    Unfortunately due to political reasons no Govt takes certain decisions which ultimately go to jurisdiction of courts. This has become a practice now and issues are going to courts unnecessarily.

  • #611854
    There are many other factors which contribute to pollution why the supreme court does not take action against them. Even the people who are considering it a welcome move from the 'Milord' would be using refrigerators, AC's, Polybags, using own means of transport instead of public transport for the sake of comfort or using them for short distances like visiting the nearby markets.
    That Milord who sits in the AC room and travels in the AC car is giving sermon on pollution content and its causes even he is contributing to the cause on daily basis. How can people be of so much double standard? I think I must initiate a new thread on this double standard and biased behaviour of 'Milord'.

  • #611866
    Completely banning the crackers is not the right approach I think. Because if it should have happened, at least those cracker traders should have been informed a month in prior, or this news should have given a warning signal first to them. So, that people could understand it and also the people who make their business out of it. But I think, those who love to play with crackers, nobody can stop them.
    But this is a right decision for Delhi, because the state of Delhi is in very bad condition. Pollution is over the top, crossing all the limits. And as Juana mam has pointed out, just the next day of Diwali, is a complete cloud of smoke can be seen throughout. It is a complete Smog layer in the atmosphere, that is very harmful for everyone. You cannot even see the sky properly it is so much of smoke. People are so much interested in playing crackers that they burn out big boxes at one go. They spend hell lot of money on the crackers. Atleast this ban could stop them from getting those big boxes to some extent. It is definitely needed for Delhi.

    A positive attitude will lead to positive results.

    Gaurav at #611782, what a comparison! And your attempt to tease a judicial authority(supported by Partha in the next response) is not acceptable. Let me tell you and you need to understand that the ban is not against any religious beliefs. Why do you and the nationalists bring in religion to each issue. Go ahead and enjoy fireworks and crackers.

    I feel so sorry that we have gone down to such a level without understanding the law and the nation; and do we actually know and realize how a Court (the Judge) function? I am not concerned or worried because disrespect has been shown to the highest judicial body but the reason for having arrived at such a conclusion is indeed unacceptable.

    'Milord' has enough time for the hearings of Rohingya terrorists and Babri Masjid case but he closed the Kashmiri Pandit case by saying that its too old. Isn't it a double standard on the part of Judiciary?
