Bhagat Singh : True Face of FEARLESSNESS

Bhagat Singh was a prominent freedom fighter of India. The courage with which Bhagat Singh fought the mighty British government for the independence of the country is a great role model for the youth of today. He also refused to run away by throwing a bomb in the Central Parliament (Central Assembly). As a result of which he was hanged on 23 March 1931 along with his two other companions, Rajguru and Sukhdev. The whole country remembered his sacrifice very seriously. First the Saunders-Slaughter in Lahore and then the Explosion of the Central Assembly in Delhi with Chandrashekhar Azad and other members of the Party gave rise to an open rebellion against the British Empire. Bhagat Singh was interested in anarchist and Marxist ideology. Early Life: Bhagat Singh was born on 27 September 1907. His father's name was Sardar Kishan Singh and mother's name was Vidyavati Kaur.

Air pollution management

 In the wake of rapid urbanization, alarmingly high levels of air pollution can be seen in the metropolitan cities like Delhi. Air pollution management is the need of the hour in order to protect our environment and restore the natural purity of air. 

Air pollution : A rising concern 

Air pollution is caused due to the presence of undesirable solid or gaseous particles in the air. It is considered to be one of the major threats to environmental health. The origin of air pollution can be traced back to the time when humans had discovered the usage of firewood. But it started increasing drastically in the beginning of the 20th century due to high scale usage of petrol and diesel. 

Concentration of industries and rapid growth in usage of motor vehicles in the densely populated cities led to high density of pollution. This can not only impact the polluted city or nearby regions, but can also affect the global environment. Ozone layer present in the Stratosphere plays a significant role as a shield against the harmful ultraviolet rays. Depletion of ozone layer and acidification of rain are the consequences of rising pollution levels in the air. 

High levels of harmful gases like Carbon Monoxide are released by poorly maintained vehicles, burning of wood, coal,  or other natural gases. Nitrogen Oxide, Sulphur Oxides, and Lead are some other dangerous chemicals causing air pollution. Prolonged exposure to such pollutants can cause lung diseases, asthma, and chronic bronchitis. These pollutants can also affect the plants as pollutants break down the waxy coating on the leaves which disturbs the process of photosynthesis. 

Management of air pollution

Some stringent laws have been imposed to curb the pollution and control emission of toxic gases.  

  • Motor Vehicle Act was introduced in 1988 by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. It includes punishment for offences related to air pollution by vehicles. According to the act vehicles emitting gases more than the prescribed limit are punishable. Requirement of a pollution certificate for the vehicle is also mandatory under the act.  
  • Air Pollution Control Act introduced in 1981 aims to limit the emission of particulate matter, Lead, Carbon Monoxide, Sulphur and other such gases. Industries, vehicles, and power plants are punishable if they release more than the prescribed limits of these harmful pollutants. A penalty fine or imprisonment can be given for violation of the rules. The act is implemented and ensured by the Pollution Control Board to improve the air quality.

Role of individuals to curb air pollution

  • First and foremost duty of an individual is to minimise the usage of vehicles emitting pollution as far as possible. This can be achieved by using public transport, cycling or walking for short distances, and car-pooling. 
  • Avoid smoking, especially in public places as it harms the health of the individual and pollutes the air inhaled by people in the vicinity
  • Inform the Pollution Control Board in writing about any industry exceeding the pollution limit and report to the local authorities about cutting down of trees without permission in the locality. 

Air pollution can be managed with the help of collective efforts by the people. It is our duty to act responsibly and incorporate eco-friendly methods in our daily lifestyle as much as possible.

Doctrine of Notional Extension under the Workmen Compensation Act, 1923

  There is no problem in detecting that the accident occurred in the course of employment when a workman is injured in the working place and in the working hour and doing his duty. The problem arises when these elements do not coincide together. But a workmen if injured just near the work premises or just before joining the work or in the way to work problem arises. To address this kind of problem and giving some kind of relief to the workmen the theory of notional extension evolved. “As a rule, the employment of a workman does not commence until he has reached the place of employment and does not continue when he has left the place of employment, the journey to and from the place of employment being excluded. It is now well-settled, however, that this is subject to the theory of notional extension of the employer’s premises so as to include an area which the workman passes and repasses in going to and in leaving the actual place of work. There may be some reasonable extension in bot

Peace - A Way Of Life

To be peaceful is the sign of a conqueror.  We have often heard people saying 'follow the path of peace and you will be happy', 'preach peace' and many other phrases emphasising on a way of living- Peace. But what is it really about?  With reference of the holy Bible, peace is defined with notions like  totality or completeness, success, fulfillment, wholeness, harmony, security and well being.  The definition of peace changes with mindsets of people. For one, it is a sense of accomplishment, non- violence for another, salvation to a few and a lot more to others. But what peace exactly is? And how can we attain it? Peace is acceptance. A vision of seeing things and extracting optimism out of it. Peace makes life easier. To be satisfied is what peace is. To be able to look back at your life and accept all its darks and jewels is what peace feels like. Peace is a state of mind where your soul feels calm, free from the dirt of hatred, negativity, criticism, inferiority and
