Where the air is free!We all are aware of the increasing level of air pollution. In many places, the air quality is not good and environmentalists are warning us to take every possible step to reduce it. There are many rules in place, though people are not always strictly following them. I think our ancestors never imagined that we have to purchase drinking water in this century. There is a scarcity of drinking water and that's why water is purified by applying different process to make it potable. The purification process requires money and because of it, we are purchasing drinking water.
If air pollution increases in such an alarming rate, we might have to purchase pure air to breathe in. I am anticipating this situation after seeing a newly installed display board at a petrol pump in the city. The display board there shows what are the facilities available. It reads – "FACILITIES AVAILABLE: WATER, FREE AIR, TOILET". It must be free air pressure that is required for the tyres instead of "FREE AIR".
But this may become a reality. Can you imagine a situation when people have to purchase pure air just to breathe in and shops or vendors would announce a bonanza to give people "FREE AIR" during special occasions? This may not be too far away if we do not act now.
