Open Letter to POLLUTION : #BachonKiMannKiBaat


Pollution is what we are hearing everywhere and kids are most affected by this. It is taking toll on their routine outdoor activities. The feelings of little musketeers are expressed below in poetic form that encapsulates #BachonKiMannKiBaat. It is very painful to see your children and their friends in tears when Children’s Day was declared a holiday in schools of Delhi-NCR due to alarming levels of air pollution. Though children forget things easily, this pollution is leaving a permanent mark in their lives. We all need to strive for better future for our children with effective measures.




Oh! Pollution you have been voted number one

No, not in our favorites but in list of hated ones

you have taken away bundled stuff from us

be it outdoor plays or celebrations, all in a complete mess.
 

Oh! Pollution, We now face extra cautious parents more

their instructions and care has grown fourfold in chore.

Small joys of life are now at stake,

even water is checked twice before we take.

 

Oh! Pollution, areas are marked even for our play

Essay topics are now revolving where you stay.

No more fresh and aromatic air to breathe

don’t like the mask, that hides real me.

 

Oh Pollution, Go away from our lives,

we promise to be responsible and strive

for healthier and eco friendly ways

just leave us, don’t return until childhood remains.





Let us all strive for efforts to cope up with Pollution and give our children a world where they can roam without masks.

  7. Our years of negligence is coming up with scary AQI in Delhi. Unknown to many, more cities across AQI are leveling up in bad AQI. Time to act before there is no tomorrow.

  10. I went to Delhi last week and could sense the pollution. I was told it had apparently reduced from worse but I could still feel so suffocated. It's truly a sad state now.

  12. the current situation of air pollution in Delhi is heart breaking. if we cant even provide our kids fresh air to breath freely, what are we even doing! imagine if everyone has to wear a mask all day or carry oxygen along in a few years from now.
