Pollution kills life?Girish Awasthi
(Vishwakarma Sanket)

Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) observed Environment Day on August 28, the day when Amrita Devi Vishnoi of Khejadli village in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan, put her arms around a tree and protected it till her head was chopped off. It happened on August 28, 1730. A total of 363 men and 69 women have lost their lives for protecting the trees as Amrita Devi did. The Rajasthan unit of BMS organised five rath yatras from Bikaner, Kota, Udaipur, Bharatpur and Jaipur in order to bring awareness about the ill-effects of pollution.

Inaugurating a yatra from Jaipur, Shri Girish Awasthi, BMS president, said the way pollution is engulfing our country the life in the subcontinent would become extinct. So it is the duty of all of us to protect humanity from all kinds of pollutants. The excess use of chemicals, pesticides, auto vehicles smoke, noise pollution and increasing temperature together have endangered the life on earth. He said we should not accept the western culture of consumerism at the cost of our health and should return to Bharatiya way of life, worship trees and honour the sacrifice made by Amrita Devi. Shri Prahalad Singh Awana, state BMS president, presided over the function. He appealed to the gathering to observe August 28 as Environment Day every year. Shri Omprakash Aggi, organising secretary of BMS, inaugurated the yatra from Bikaner and the yatra from Bharatpur was inaugurated by Shri Akhtar Hussain.
