  • Who is to blame?
  • Luxury or discomfort
  • Are educated people making use of education ?

Any person can speak on numerous things which are affecting our environment and also claims to change lifestyle for the same but do they? Very few, because people do not understand that it's not the large things but small things daily which are affecting the environment. In India the process of praying to god involves so many things, the different things which are used while praying like flowers, incense sticks, Diyas and many other things, the more you can afford, more you will include but has anyone ever thought that the things which they use produce a large quantity of waste, and then rich claims to be using more environment-friendly things and if someone tries to talk about these things then next day there will be protests and riots because religion is more sensitive in India than a soap bubble. Then how many people try to make the use out waste, again very few, like when they peel vegetables in their houses, almost everyone throws away waste and never try to make use of it, like the best use out of it can be giving them to domestic animals like cows and buffaloes which are not hard to find on roads even in urban areas. People will do these things once or twice maybe for a week but making it a part of lifestyle is not seen in many houses. In every single house, people just have one dustbin and they collect every kind of waste in that, they don't even bother to give it a second thought. Then the waste which is generated out of sanitary pads, a single woman can generate up to  approximately125 kgs of non-biodegradable waste through her menstruating years. It has become a silent problem, some women do not even bother to dispose pads properly and then people cleaning our garbage are the ones ho suffers the most, using a sanitary napkin has gradually become safe for one's health but the risk for another. Other alternatives like menstrual cups are used by very few women and a large number of women do not even know something like this exists. The water level is going down day by day and even in some cities it has become zero but still, people find new ways every day to waste it, there have been so many programs, workshops teaching efficient use of used water for other purposes but still people leave their taps open very often. The problems discussed above have been recognized more in urban areas than rural areas because in urban areas most of the people have that luxury to get things easily. After all, turning a tap takes very less effort as compared to drawing water from well or a hand pump. The less educated having less luxurious life has contributed more than those who have the luxury of everything at a single click, as they should be contributing more because luxury has to lead to the exploitation of our environment more. It is no comparison between two classes but it is about the individual effort of every citizen towards the environment which one should understand on its own. So, everyone should understand their responsibility on their own and should do something genuine for a change because cutting trees for making paper and writing on it "Save Tress" is not a solution, some real changes are required with a more realistic approach.
