Early awareness[ edit ] Levels of air pollution rose during the Industrial Revolutionsparking the first modern environmental laws to be passed in the midth century Early interest in the environment was a feature of the Romantic movement in the early 19th century. The poet William Wordsworth had travelled extensively in the Lake District and wrote that it is a "sort of national property in which every man has a right and interest who has an eye to perceive and a heart to enjoy". The emergence of great factories and the concomitant immense growth in coal consumption gave rise to an unprecedented level of air pollution in industrial centers; after the large volume of industrial chemical discharges added to the growing load of untreated human waste.
Here we learn of ordinary citizens and local NGOs who inspired people in their areas to keep their surroundings clean and free of diseases. This factor is also applicable in Health and Sanitation. But for a long-term implication and effect, people have to take ownership of their environment.
When people understand their roles and responsibilities towards a clean environment, only then any scheme becomes a success.
In many places, people have come together to keep their lanes, villages or city clean. A similar effort was made in Nehrunagar slum located opposite to Bus depot on Hatkeshwar Mahadev temple road at Amrawadi. There are around slum dwellings mainly occupied by migrants of Nadiya and Waghari community.
People from Maharashtra and southern India are also staying here. The residents earn their income by collecting paper and waste which are kept outside homes. They separate the saleable paper from the waste and the rest stays there.
Wind scatters the waste to nearby regions. The entire area becomes dirty and unhygienic, all this leads to skin problems, infections in eyes and other diseases. A lot of expense is borne for the treatment of these diseases.
Malnutrition is common and excessive unhygienic condition leads to epidemics. The poor hygienic condition in Nehrunagar slum, where people largely make money from sorting waste It becomes difficult to implement cleanliness drives in these regions. A local NGO made the residents understand the importance of cleanliness.
Epidemics and diseases spread through such an environment, regular cleaning is the only way out.
The volunteers of the NGO continued with the behavioral change communication activities. During that time the Municipal Corporation was also on a cleanliness drive. The volunteers were determined to make the impossible happen.
On a fixed date they involved local youths, women and the elderly in the cleanliness drive. The staff of the Municipal Corporation also supported them in the cause. Within days the entire slum of Nehrunagar transformed into a new place. A truck full of waste was gathered from the slum.
With a view to maintaining the hygiene of the place, two dustbins were put up. Clean environment makes one healthy, and we are protecting our health. Huge waste had accumulated near the vegetable market of Ramnagar. The vendors of the vegetable market and the residents of nearby areas were fed up of the waste.
Hemant Vyas, a young man had returned from Canada after several years. He is working as a lecturer in a college at Judaal. His home is adjacent to the market. The waste from a nearby hospital was also dumped in the area. It became difficult to stay in those conditions.
The learnings from staying in a clean environment at Canada were instilled strongly. He decided to take up the issue and started meeting government officials at the Municipal Corporation.
Hemant and his group of friends who were doctors by profession also took up the issue and their efforts showed results.Welcome to Beaver City. Gateway to the Tushar Mountains! You'll be surprised by what Beaver City has to offer. Come pay us a visit and stay a while.
