My City My Responsibility - Our rights and duties

Dear All, 

We just witnessed the 69th Republic Day. Being a democratic nation our Constitution gives us certain rights and endows us with certain duties. Our environment is linked to our rights in such a way that it is the basic human right to live in a pollution free environment.

Regarding the same lets see how our Constitution relates to Environment.

The Article 48-A bestows upon the State to protect and improve our environment and safeguard our forests and wildlife. 
The Article 51A (g) endows us as citizens with a fundamental duty,“to protect” the environment from any kind of pollution and also to “improve” the environment quality if it has been polluted' .
The Article 21 states that 'no person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by Law.

We as citizens are facing several environmental issues like pollution of air, water and land ultimately depriving many of us from life which is our basic right. Hence it is crucial for us to understand our duty towards our environment.   

In short our duty to protect and improve our environment is essential for our right to life.  

Happy Republic Day!

Pournima Agarkar.

We Indians including pune people(I am also one of them)are and take pride in describing/illustrating,giving examples etc.
But nobody comes with all accepted "FOOLPROOF" solution
People firstly are LETHARGIC to any change,and they take rebellion pleasure first and then by ignoring what you propose ,though it is almost majority accepted and even LOGICALLY foolproof.

SO....
LET US CONTINUE WHAT IS GOING ON...
ACCEPT THE THINGS ..
"AS IS WHERE IS BASIS"

and accept the principle...

Dear Arun Sir,

Thank you for the comment.

Please don't be so negative about Pune people and their approach.
At least in Pune there is some awareness among people to do something, be it a rebel.
We have to keep trying from all possible means and in the right direction in order to make the change happen.
So lets play our role well.
