New Delhi : In a bid to sensitise people about the need to go for the radical fuel alteration, 'Hawa Badlo', an independent people’s movement spearheaded by a Gurgaon based startup Social Cloud Ventures today launched a video named 'Time Bomb' in the national capital.
After launching the video, Vivek Nangia, Director, Fortis Lung Centre, Fortis Hospital said, “Pollution creates respiratory problems like Asthma, Bronchitis, Lung Cancer and Cardiovascular diseases and the whole breathing system gets affected.
Ashes from pollution particulates also lead to many skin disease conditions.
Degraded air quality is ultimately leading to health catastrophe.
” Gas Authority of India Ltd (GAIL) is supporting the campaign, aiming to educate people of the fact that India is sitting on ticking 'time bomb' named pollution and if they delay in reforming fuel use, they are bound to reach a point of no return.
The air catastrophe would wreak havoc on coming generation.
Nipun Arora founder, Hawa Badlo said, 'Time Bomb is alarming us how 2030 India will look if pollution is not stopped right away.
We are becoming selfish and want to lead a luxurious life, big cars, big house and everything big.
Owing a big car is not their fault, but no running your car on cleaner alternative is.
' He further added, “We are losing our sense of decision and what we assume to be comfort now would soon turn to be a collective regret for the entire humankind in the near future.
” “With this video we are trying to elucidate, that with these selfish decisions we are actually devising a 'Time Bomb' which would blast once the level of oxygen is overtaken by levels of other harmful particulate matters and there will be no fresh air to breathe in,” Mr Arora said.
The video further states natural Gas is the one of the best solution to stop India from inching towards pollution precipice and to save India from explosion of the 'Bomb'.
Currently, the statistics from WHO report states 1.
4 million people in India die pre-maturely deaths due to air pollution, which accounts to one life is given up every 23 seconds.
