Jyoti Jha’s book ‘Aanandi’ depicts the convergence of Literature and Cinema

 In a live session ‘Impact of Literature on Bollywood’, Jyoti Jha, an HR-turned-Author discussed various aspects of literature and its influence on Bollywood. The panel consisted of famous TV actor Rahul Tomar and the session was hosted by RJ Jyoti Singh at the prestigious platform of Literia Insight.



In the ever-evolving and changing society where women are found holding high positions and ranks in various organizations and establishments; on the other hand, even today they are in a constant struggle towards finding their rightful place in the societal setup. Be it for their independence, self-reliance, education, or safety, there is a continuous battle against the resident evils of society. Standing against the patriarchal system which has been going on for centuries, and grappling through shameful acts of violence, dowry system, torture, inequality, etc., the scenario has not changed much over the decades for women.



In such a situation, trying to bring positive changes in society through writing seems a challenging effort. However, literature has always played a pivotal role in bringing fresh perspectives to thinking, conveying newer viewpoints to people, and connecting people with the untouched links of the society through literary landscapes and contributions of litterateurs. One such story ‘Aanandi’, by author Jyoti Jha, promises positivity in terms of women empowerment, education, and finding opportunity amidst adversity. The story emerges from a rural environment and shows the potential to bring a positive message to people in society.

While the literature has the power to convey positivity to society, the confluence of literature in cinema cannot be ignored. Be it Cinema, Television, or OTT Platforms, these mediums are always on the lookout for good stories and scripts that showcase the potential to impact society and be a guiding force in bringing necessary changes. The story of ‘Aanandi’ is suited for cinema and in the coming days, the book may be seen being adapted to the big screen.

In the session ‘Impact of Literature on Bollywood’, the panellists expressed their views on various aspects of literature, cinema, and their amalgamation. A multifaceted TV Actor, Rahul Tomar who has been associated with TV series like ‘Hamari Wali Good News’, ‘Krishna Chali London’, and ‘Crime Petrol’, conveyed the impact of stories picked up from the grassroots levels and portrayed on big screens. The actor hails from Katni, Madhya Pradesh.

Growing up in Bihar, Jyoti Jha’s childhood has been enriched with literature, and writing for her is a spiritual reflection of her contemplations and self-expression. Jyoti has been associated with the corporates like Infosys and Whirlpool and has contributed to English Literature through her books. Through ‘Aanandi’, the author endeavours to present a positive direction to society. The book is being published by PR Publications.

THE FRUITS OF OLD AGE


Every age has its own charm but despondently when it comes to old age, our society has taken a few steps backwards and tremendously failed to look at the bright side. When it comes to job opportunities, many so-called good companies slam the doors for experienced & wise people. If the elderly tries to join a new course, apply for a job, join as a club member, visit his/her child’s office, accompany their grandchildren, our society gives stupefying reactions. 

The love and tenderness which a newborn gets, the same is required for our older population but they are woodenly shunned. It’s disgraceful to see the rampant emergence of old age homes in a country that is well known for its morality. A nation wherein the people have a deep reverence for priests, saints and are good at debating over what’s right and what’s wrong but turn gibberish towards the elder population. How one treats the (known/unknown) elder population tells a lot about a person's ethical value. 

Here is the list of reasons which will justify why we need to revamp our modern thinking for our old population


Old Age is an Asset

Whether it is wisdom or experience, elderly people are on the upper edge. I have worked with a 35 y/o employer and 75 y/o employers and realized where more sincerity, maturity, calmness, balance, ethics, and consciousness lie on. It’s not a generalization, but, due to deep focus and attention retention, elderly people have the ability to think more intelligently and ethically. For example, PM Modi, Ratan Tata, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Soman have proved that age is just a number and are gleefully sharing their blessings with others.

  Some people are young at 80 while others are old at 18

Due to the influence of the virtual world and too many indoor activities, the youth is comparatively less active than it used to be. The elder population is much smarter in managing multifarious tasks as compared to the youth. But the emphasis is always focused on youth which stands for naivety, hasty judgment, and lack of discernment. The biographies of the famous old men and women suggest that they have continued their productive activities into the years well beyond the normal span of life.

 Old age implies one has more wisdom & life experiences

Indeed, age is the dawn of wisdom. Life is short to have bad experiences, and we must learn from the mistakes of others. The elder population is much more involved in the inner world than the outer world, therefore, they have much more to offer. One is more likely to acquire life-related wisdom from their grandparents, elderly family members, teachers, employers, and seniors.

 Old people are much needed

Some employers shut down the doors for the people who are 40+ as the emphasis seems to be on youth. If the employer replaces their shallow thinking and realizes that the elder people are not selling their age, rather willing to share their skills, talents, understanding, and wisdom gathered over the years on the marketplace of life. Whether it is school, college, office, and home, we need old people for their guidance, love, and blessings. We need them more than they need us. It’s our time to help them to welcome the change gracefully.

✔ Old People are young by mind and spirit

Old age is often regarded as a second childhood, but they are not given the same amount of care and admiration as a child. Whether it is in the workplace or at home, society wants to get rid of them. They should not be asked to resign or leave because of their age, as it is the time when they could be more useful in the organization or home. They don’t need your money; they just need some emotional support. They usually don’t react to the tantrums and chaos as they are tapped in their spiritual world and have the ability to think justly and meekly.

 Starting over a new venture

We must not let our older population become the prisoners of society rather we must motivate them to be a producer. It’s never too late to set and start over a new dream or goal. Madame Ernestine Schumann- Heink, reached the pinnacle of her musical success after she became a grandmother. Isaac Newton was hard at work close to 85. Socrates learned to play musical instruments when he was 80 y/o. George Bernard Shaw was active at 90 whereby the artistic quality of his mind had not relaxed from active duty. It’s our obligation to provide the healthiest and peaceful environment to our senior citizens.

Women’s Emotional Abuse: Everything You Need to Know

POST CREDIT: Badlav Seva Samiti

Domestic abuse is indeed a form of emotional abuse. If you are not physically harmed, you may not believe you are being mistreated. However, emotional, and verbal abuse can have just as devastating short-term and long-term consequences as physical violence.

Emotional abuse can occur at any moment in an individual’s life. Women who are children, teenagers, or adults are all subjected to emotional abuse.

Emotional abuse is any type of abuse that is not physical in origin. It can range from vocal abusive behaviour and continuous criticizing to more subtle techniques like manipulation, intimidation, and a willingness to never be satisfied. It can be seen in multiple ways. Denial, aggression, and minimisation are three typical types of abusive behaviour.

This can be destructive to relationships, and everyone involved. Just because there is no visible scar does not imply the abuse isn't real or that it isn't a serious issue or even a criminal in certain countries.

Since there is no defined term for emotional abuse, it might have a definition that goes beyond psychological abuse and verbal abuse. Humiliating, blaming, and name-calling are just a few examples of verbal abuse that may have an emotional impact on a victim.

Verbal abuse impacts and even damages the victim's self-worth and mental well-being, resulting in an emotionally traumatized victim. The sufferer may suffer from serious psychological effects.

It would also include brainwashing methods, which may also be classified as psychological abuse, but emotional abuse includes manipulating victim's emotions.

The victim may believe that the abuser has influenced their emotions to such an extent that the victim is unable to recognise their own feelings about the issue or issues that the abuser is influencing. As a result, the victim's self-concept and independence are gradually lost.


 

Emotional abuse is sometimes referred to by experts as psychological abuse or "chronic verbal aggression." People who have experienced emotional abuse have poor self-esteem, changes in personality (such as withdrawing themselves from things they like doing), and may even become nervous, suicidal, or depressed.

Emotional abuse can occur unexpectedly. Some abusers may begin by behaving normally and then begin abusing after establishing a connection.

In the beginning of a relationship, some abusers may purposely flood you with affection and attention, including praises and desires to see you frequently.

The abuser frequently attempts to make the person feel deeply attached to them, as though the two of them are “against the world.”


Here are few examples of emotional abuse: 

⚠ Verbally attacking the victim.

⚠ Having control over what the victim has to do and cannot do.

⚠ Keeping personal things from the victim.

⚠ Intentionally causing the person to suffer.

⚠ Made to feel inferior or humiliated.

⚠ Keeping track of the partner's location and time.

⚠ Yelling at her for not having a child/ not having a male child.

⚠ Compelling the victim that she is insane.

⚠ Undermining the victim's self-esteem and/or confidence.

⚠ Making fun of the victim in public or in private.

⚠ Restricting the victim's access to money or other essential assets

⚠ When the abuser tries separating victim from their family and friends.

⚠ Interfering with the partner's ability to work.

Accusations, verbal abuse, name-calling, critiques, and gaslighting undermine a victim's sense of self over time to the point where they can no long see themselves truly.

As a result, the victim may tend to agree with the abuser and develop internal criticism. When this occurs, the majority of victims get stuck in abusive relationship, feeling that they'll never be good enough for anybody else.


How to deal with emotional abuse?

Prioritize yourself: When it concerns your emotional and physical wellness, you must prioritise yourself. Stop trying to please the one who is assaulting you. Take care of your own requirements.

Or do something to encourage you to stay positive and reinforce your identity.

Additionally, make sure you get enough rest and eat nutritious foods. These basic self-care actions can help you cope with the day-to-day difficulties of emotional abuse.

✔ Setting Boundaries 

Tell the abusive individual that they can no long shout at you, call you names, disrespect you, be nasty to you, or do anything else. Then, inform them of the consequences of engaging in this activity.

Tell them, for example, that if they insult you or call you names, the discussion will end, and you will walk out of the room. The important thing is to stick to your principles when it comes to setting boundaries.

Know it’s not your mistake and doesn’t blame yourself: If you've been in an emotionally abusive relationship for a long time, you might think there's something horribly off with you.

However, you are never the issue. Abusing implies making a choice. Stop punishing yourself for something over which you have no power.

✔ Stop fixing your abuser

Regardless of how hard you try; you would never be able to fix an emotional abuser by doing or being better. An abusive individual makes the decision to be abusive.

✔ Avoid Explaining yourself

Do not interact with someone who is abusive. In other terms, if an abuser attempts to create an issue with you, insults you, expects things, or rages with jealously, do not try to explain, comfort their feelings, or ask for forgiveness for something you did not do.

If possible, walk straight away from the situation. Interacting with an abuser simply leads to more harassment and heartbreak. You will never be able to make things right in their eyes, no matter how hard you try. 

✔ Work on ending that relationship

Try moving away from the situation. Dealing with an abuser just increases the pressure and misery. No matter how long it takes, you will never be able to make things right in their eyes.

Depending on your circumstances, you might have to end the relationship. Every case is unique. So, talk to a trusted friend, family member, or counsellor about your thoughts and ideas.

Emotional abuse can have deep impacts, but it can also serve as a starting point to violence and physical abuse.

WHAT IS A NUCLEAR FAMILY & ITS BENEFITS?


  

Hi readers! We are here again with another episode on different types of the family system in India. In this series, we are going to cover different family systems in India i.e., small family, big family, nuclear family, joint family etc. We have already covered two topics among the topics mentioned above and it has been seen by more than 1 lakh+ viewers. If you are interested to read those blogs, here I am sharing the links of those two blogs as well.

In this blog, we are going to discuss, what is a nuclear family? its advantages & disadvantages and what is our thought on the concept of the nuclear family.

These days, the concept of the nuclear family is more prevalent in society and now the families prefer the nuclear family over the joint family. The next question is “what is the meaning of nuclear family”, so according to sociology & anthropology, the simplest meaning of the nuclear family is the parents’ child relationship consists of an adult couple and their children. Through these couples are usually male & female but now the definition of the nuclear family further expanded and added same-sex marriage as well. The child of the nuclear family not only includes their socially recognized children but also via biological offspring or adopted by a couple.
 

Benefits of Nuclear Family

Here are the benefits of the nuclear family. 

> Financial Stability

Having a nuclear family reduces the family expenditure substantially giving more financial stability which further creates more opportunities. Such families can afford more expenses on child education, healthy food & lifestyle, etc. According to the survey conducted, 57% of nuclear families are above the poverty line, and in that case, they can enjoy much more in their life and can opt for a good lifestyle too. In addition to this, children can uprise in their career if they get quality education & required resources that help them to crack better opportunities.

> Harmony & peace

Keeping harmony & peace in the family or within the house is very essential. It helps in promoting the optimum environment for human potential to flourish in all situations be it personal, social & economic. Conflict can arise in any family at any time, but it is necessary to be solved at the earliest to maintain the healthiest atmosphere in the family. Fewer members in the family mean fewer chances of conflict, thereby fewer chances of disturbance.

> Is it give better opportunity for them to have a good lifestyle?

The obvious answer to this question is yes. The possibility to achieve financial freedom is more in the nuclear family in comparison to joint family thereby enabling them to expense more on their lifestyle, food, child education, extracurricular activities, vacation, health, etc.

> More time & space for Women

In nuclear families, females have more time & space to enjoy their life. They can enjoy their spare time post performing their household duties. As the number of members in the nuclear family is fewer requiring fewer tasks to do, means more free time.

Small Family Happy family

The concept of a small family works well in nuclear families. As the parents have to bear all the responsibilities & expenses of raising children enabling them to have one or two children maximum.


Disadvantages of Nuclear Family

Here are the disadvantages of the nuclear family. 

> No Helping Hands

As we discussed earlier a nuclear family means adults & their children only, so the adults have to take care of everything. They are responsible for the nurturing of the child plus jobs, and household work too. They do not have much personal time and sometimes, they also become annoyed and irritate with their daily life routine.

> Hire Maid to take care their child

The next disadvantage of having a nuclear family is when to hire a maid for taking care of the children or leave them in the church if both parents work. In such situations, parents cannot be sure whether the nurturing of their kids happening properly or not.

> Insecurity at the Old Age

There is always insecurity in the nuclear family. As the parents grow older, and as they have followed the nuclear family concept indirectly teaching their children to opt for a nuclear family as well. If the parents do not have a retirement amount, they have to face problems in their 2nd innings (old age).   

> Child Insecurity in the nuclear family

As in nuclear families, parents have to take care of everything, so in such cases, they both work to uplift the living standards and in doing so, they are unable to give attention to their children. Owing to this, a child starts feeling abandon, socially isolated & alone and unknowingly sometimes they also join the company of wrong people that leads them to the wrong path.  

> Economical Losses

If you are part of a joint family, then there are several breadwinners or helping hands in the family that support each other and by their collective efforts, the family income rises upwards. Division of joint family into the nuclear family leads to the property division followed by the increase in the expenditure such as they have to buy all the resources individually for their livelihood be it the fridge, washing machine, TV, and many more.

> Conflict Resolution Skills

Conflicts are the part of parcel of each family, and it is inevitable. You cannot stop them completely whether you stay in the joint family or the nuclear family. There is an advantage of having a nuclear family as the fewer members in the family leads to fewer chances of misunderstanding but at the same time, there is a disadvantage too. When you have a joint family, then different persons bring different opinions & ideas that help in solving conflicts which is not possible in the nuclear family.

> No Support in the emergency time

Life is full of ups & downs, and we cannot predict “what is going to happen next”? It seems perfect in the nuclear family if everything goes in the right direction but sometimes one obstacle breaks the foundation of the nuclear family and put them into crisis.  

> Nuclear Family Crisis

Another disadvantage of nuclear families is the increasing number of divorces which is less likely to happen in a joint family. The future of a child is in a great dilemma if divorce occurs in the nuclear family.

DIGITAL EDUCATION IN RURAL INDIA


We have covered some stories on covid 19 and its impacts. The whole world has been severely hit by this pandemic & it is not ended yet. Check out the stories we have covered so far on this pandemic.

Here in this blog, we are going to see the role of Digital education in rural India.

Since 2020, the world has been suffering from covid-19 and yet we are not sure when it will be ended. Post 2nd wave, the 3rd wave is expected, and research is underway to understand what will happen post 3rd wave. The lifestyle of human beings has changed, and it has been impacted by covid adversely. The GDP of the whole world has shrunk, millions of job loss and death. Hardly is there any industry or individual which is not being impacted by this and the education industry among them.

Since last year, all the schools have been closed impacting child education. Thanks to digital education which helps in the continuation of education up to a certain extent but that is successful in the urban & metro cities. Can we think of the same success rate in rural area? There is hardly any reason to believe so. Imagine in an area where there is no ensured electricity supply, there are little or less modern mediums of communication, even families so financially distressed that they lack accessibility of food, Is digital education really a feasible option? Let us not forget that digital education needs decent internet coverage, a smartphone, and obviously enough electrical supply to operate these devices.

DIGITAL EDUCATION IN RURAL INDIA


There have been signs of progress in some villages, but the data is not sufficient enough to say whether India can actually go ‘completely digital’ in order to provide education to the impoverished and underprivileged children in India.

A maximum of the financially distressed families is going to be further entrapped in the vicious poverty cycle, merely because in these critical times, the policymakers have failed to actually deliver education to their children. Read about KNOW ABOUT CORONAVIRUS AND ITS EFFECTS IN DETAIL

 

Effects during the pandemic

Rural education had been drastically affected due to the coronavirus outbreak in both waves. There are numerous children who stand devoid of education during these harsh times. The famous mid-day meal scheme also acted as a huge boost to admission rates in rural schools and children received meals along with education. This ensured that rural children won battles against two fronts- Hunger and Illiteracy. The pandemic, however, has reduced the delivery rate of mid-day meals as well. Another issue is the lack of digital education of teachers. Teachers, especially in rural and semi-urban areas, face difficulties in instructing and teaching through the online medium. They also face technical issues, which would rather have never subsisted, if not for the online mode of education. These little interruptions accumulate to ultimately become enormous hindrances, which further the accessibility divide between the urban and rural children. Read about WHY DID CHILD MARRIAGE INCREASE IN COVID-19?

Oxfam India, a non-governmental organization, surveyed 1158 parents and 488 teachers across five states- Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, and Uttar Pradesh. The survey findings yield the following facts.

✅ The survey displays 35% of children did not receive mid-day meals.

✅ 53% of children received dry rations and only 8% of children received cooked meals.

✅ 84% of teachers reported facing problems while teaching through digital mediums.

✅ Only 20% of teachers were given orientation and minimal training for delivering online lectures.

✅ 80% of teachers in Uttar Pradesh and 67% of teachers in Chhattisgarh lacked adequate devices for online classes.

✅ 75% of parents faced problems like costly data, unstable internet, and lack of wi-fi services in order to accommodate online classes.

Clearly, these statistics show us how digital education in rural India is far away from a mission accomplished.

 

Examining the roots

It is true that crises like Coronavirus are unpredictable. However, it is also true that such crises put any nation’s existing infrastructure to test, be it healthcare, education, distribution systems, communications, etc.

India performed decently well in the healthcare sector during the first wave, considering demographics like population density, but the performance of the education sector in rural areas has been a drastic failure. This is because adequate steps had not been taken earlier to digitalize villages and towns, perhaps digital education was not ever considered in villages. The crises exposed this vulnerability of rural areas in reference to access to internet resources, specifically educational resources. The numerous planned policies without proper implementation on the ground level are as useless as a glass hammer. Like many websites, portals, digital libraries may be developed, but without a stable and speedy internet connection, and other basic requisites like digital knowledge and electricity, they are useless.

This further showcases the importance of efficient and effective infrastructure, or at least an improved infrastructure for rural areas, and certain towns and semi-urban areas. Read about HOW TO TRAIN YOUR INDUSTRY TO FIGHT CORONAVIRUS

 

Proposed Solutions

The aforementioned facts and arguments clearly indicate the slow and ineffective growth of digital education in rural India. It has to be acknowledged that certain parents and students even in the urban areas face difficulties with online classes. There are numerous problems that have been exposed during this time of the pandemic. The infrastructural growth is never going to occur overnight, but there are immediate measures that can be done to solve problems till the time the pandemic exists.

For instance, in areas where there are low infection rates, physical schooling shall start adhering to proper covid-prevention protocols. The students who are privileged enough shall be encouraged to donate their old books, and the government shall play a part as an intermediary to ensure these books reach the needy and underprivileged. These would ensure that the immediate problem of lack of Digital resources is solved. The mid-day meal scheme shall be revised and restarted as effectively and immediately as possible. Schools, when reopened, shall be thoroughly disinfected, and sanitized in order to create a safe environment. Washing sinks shall also be built at every place possible in schools so that children develop the important habit of washing hands during the pandemic.

In the long run, the government has to focus on providing digital education in rural India. They have to take initiatives to improve infrastructure, which helps the country in every time of crisis. Teachers shall be given special workshops for several methods of digital teaching. The government may even provide internet in villages at subsidized rates, and further, develop adequate infrastructure to support the same. Infrastructure in any country will always remain to be the mainspring of growth and development of its people. Hence, developing rural infrastructure along with effective policies shall pave the way for digital rural schools to become an actual reality.

As we discussed earlier a nuclear family means adults & their children only, so the adults have to take care of everything. They are responsible for the nurturing of the child plus jobs, and household work too. They do not have much personal time and sometimes, they also become annoyed and irritate with their daily life routine.

> Hire Maid to take care their child

The next disadvantage of having a nuclear family is when to hire a maid for taking care of the children or leave them in the church if both parents work. In such situations, parents cannot be sure whether the nurturing of their kids happening properly or not.

> Insecurity at the Old Age

There is always insecurity in the nuclear family. As the parents grow older, and as they have followed the nuclear family concept indirectly teaching their children to opt for a nuclear family as well. If the parents do not have a retirement amount, they have to face problems in their 2nd innings (old age).   

> Child Insecurity in the nuclear family

As in nuclear families, parents have to take care of everything, so in such cases, they both work to uplift the living standards and in doing so, they are unable to give attention to their children. Owing to this, a child starts feeling abandon, socially isolated & alone and unknowingly sometimes they also join the company of wrong people that leads them to the wrong path.  

> Economical Losses

If you are part of a joint family, then there are several breadwinners or helping hands in the family that support each other and by their collective efforts, the family income rises upwards. Division of joint family into the nuclear family leads to the property division followed by the increase in the expenditure such as they have to buy all the resources individually for their livelihood be it the fridge, washing machine, TV, and many more.

> Conflict Resolution Skills

Conflicts are the part of parcel of each family, and it is inevitable. You cannot stop them completely whether you stay in the joint family or the nuclear family. There is an advantage of having a nuclear family as the fewer members in the family leads to fewer chances of misunderstanding but at the same time, there is a disadvantage too. When you have a joint family, then different persons bring different opinions & ideas that help in solving conflicts which is not possible in the nuclear family.

> No Support in the emergency time

Life is full of ups & downs, and we cannot predict “what is going to happen next”? It seems perfect in the nuclear family if everything goes in the right direction but sometimes one obstacle breaks the foundation of the nuclear family and put them into crisis.  

> Nuclear Family Crisis

Another disadvantage of nuclear families is the increasing number of divorces which is less likely to happen in a joint family. The future of a child is in a great dilemma if divorce occurs in the nuclear family.

ESSAY ON AIR POLLUTION AND ITS HARMFUL EFFECTS IN ENGLISH

ESSAY ON AIR POLLUTION AND ITS HARMFUL EFFECTS IN ENGLISH


Hey Guys! This is the 2nd blog of the essay series on pollution. In the last blog, we have seen different types of pollution, and this blog will be focused on a long & short essay on Air Pollution in English. This blog will help you guys to know more about Air Pollution & its harmful effects. It is very useful, and you can take reference from it if you write in school, colleges, competitive exams, etc. So, let us start.

Link of First Blog: https://www.socialposts.org/2021/04/essay-pollution-types.html

Before jumping on to the topic, I would like to start this blog with a question: “what is most important in life?”. Is it money or health or something else? Think for a couple of minutes and see what comes to your mind if you ask this question to yourself. What I assume for most of them, they will say money and if you are one of them, then you have been misled by it. 

What we believe, having good health, a nice atmosphere to live in and fresh air to breathe, nothing is more important than this, but due to the increasing population and various developmental projects have cost serious impact on the environment, especially in developing countries. Day by day air pollution is increasing due to various human activities. This increasing air pollution is causing various health problems.

 

What is Air Pollution

Air pollution is the presence of materials in the environment that can be hazardous to the well-being of people and other living creatures, or destructive to the environment. The measurement of air quality follows based on 8 parameters such as PM10, PM 2.5, nitrogen oxide, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, ammonia, and lead.

Here PM stands for “particular matter”. If the diameter of the particles suspended in the environment is less than 2.5 micrometres, then it is called PM2.5. Similarly, if the diameter of the particles suspended in the air is less than 10 micrometres, it is called PM10.

 

Causes of Air Pollution

The main source of Air pollution is solid and liquid particles and certain gases suspended in the air. These particles and gases may come from exhaust gases from cars, trucks, factories, dust, pollen, volcanoes, and forest fires. In the air, they are called aerosols. Air pollution occurs when solid and liquid particles called aerosols and certain gases enter the air. These particles and gases may be harmful to the health of the earth and ours too.

 
Where does the aerosol come from?

Any particle that enters the air or is formed by a chemical reaction in the air can be an aerosol. When we burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil and wood, many aerosols are released into the atmosphere. These particles can come from many sources, including exhaust from cars, factories and even forest fires. Some particles and gases come directly from these sources, while others are produced by chemical reactions in the air. Aerosols can also come from other places, such as volcanic ash, from volcanic eruptions. Dust, pollen, etc. are also examples of aerosols.

Most of the air pollution comes from burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gasoline to generate energy for electricity or transportation. The release of carbon monoxide in high concentrations indicates how much fossil fuel is being burned. This also emits other toxins. Industrial activities emit various pollutants into the air that affect air quality more than we do.

Particulate matter 2.5 and 10, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide are important pollutants emitted by industries that use coal and wood as the main source of energy for the manufacture of their goods.

Use of toxic products, also known as volatile organic compounds (VOC), inadequate ventilation, uneven temperature and humidity can all lead to indoor air pollution, whether you are in the office, school, or home, Air Pollution can be caused by ignorant factors, such as by smoking tobacco in a room or by untreated infected walls. Using wood stoves or space heaters can increase humidity, which in a short period of time can directly affect a person's health and lead to breathing problems. Sometimes it can even lead to chronic diseases.

Climate change not only increases forest fires but also increases air pollution. The burning of stubble and residues in agriculture is also an important contributor to forest fires. It causes an increase in PM 2.5 in the air, which collides with other harmful substances like chemical gas and pollen, creating smog.

In urban cities, vehicle pollution is the main contributor to air pollution. When your car burns gasoline, it emits pollutants into the air that is just as harmful as smoking 10 cigarettes a day. It emits carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. When vehicle pollution is high in the atmosphere, it creates a hole in the ozone layer, which contributes to smog and causes various health problems. Burning garbage outdoors is more harmful to your health and the environment than you might think.

 
What are the harmful effects of air pollution on human being and the environment?

✅ The most worrying effect of air pollution in according to scientists and environmentalist is global warming. Global warming is a direct consequence of the greenhouse effect caused by high levels of CO2 and methane being emitted into the atmosphere. Most of these emissions are caused by industry. This can be remedied with social responsibility and the action of companies and factories.

✅ Climate change is another consequence of global warming. When the temperature of the planet rises, the usual climatic cycles are disrupted, which apparently accelerates the changes in those cycles. climate change is causing the melting of ice and this further causes flooding and rising sea levels.

✅ The gases emitted by industry, power plants, boilers, heating, and transportation are very toxic, including sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), which are released into the atmosphere when fossil fuels are burned. When these substances accumulate and react with water in the atmosphere, they form dilute solutions of nitric and sulfuric acids. When these concentrations turn to rain, both the environment and the surfaces suffer.

✅ The smog effect takes place when a type of dark fog is concentrated over cities and fields, which is a pollution load and can be of two types: sulphurous smog and photochemical smog, both dangerous and unhealthy. The types of smog are a result of industrial and urban action. However, sulphurous smog mainly originated from the use of coal in many industrial processes, which has been reduced in the most advanced countries, but it remains a problem for developing & underdeveloped countries.

✅ Acid rain, climate change and smog are damaging the earth's surface, polluted water, and gases seep into the earth, changing the composition of the soil, which has a direct impact on agriculture, changing the cultivation cycles and the composition of the food we all eat.

✅ As the ice sheets melt at the poles and sea levels rise, many animal species are threatened whose survival depends on the oceans and rivers. Current climate change leads to ocean temperatures change, and then further change in migration cycles, and many animals are forced to forage in unfamiliar environments. For them, deforestation and poor soil quality also mean the disappearance of ecosystems and habitats and ultimately an imbalance in the behaviour of many wild species.

✅ It is probably one of the foremost obvious and worrying effects on human beings. Pollutants can cause respiratory illnesses and allergies starting from coughs to asthma, cancer, or emphysema.

 

Precaution to be taken to prevent Air Pollution.

✅ Save energy - at home, at work, anywhere.

✅ Look for the ENERGY STAR label when purchasing equipment for a house or office.

✅ Carpool, public transport, or on foot whenever possible.

✅ Consider purchasing "spill-proof" portable gasoline containers if available.

✅ Shred or compost leaves and garden waste.

✅ Use environmentally safe paints and various cleaning products if possible.

✅ Reduce or eliminate the use of fireplaces and wood stoves.

✅ Avoid burning leaves, trash, and other materials.
