The 12-year environmental activist has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion of the first International Clean Air Day for Blue Sky. Demanding pure air, he wrote that if nothing was done, one day everyone would have to carry an oxygen cylinder. Riddhima hails from Haridwar in Uttarakhand.
Riddhima wrote to the Prime Minister – Make sure that oxygen cylinders do not become an important part of children's lives, which we have to carry on our shoulders in future. The air is so polluted that going to school with an oxygen cylinder is like a nightmare. I am worried that if a 12-year-old child like me has difficulty breathing, what effect will this have on children living in Delhi or other cities.
Every year the air becomes very polluted in many parts of India and after October it becomes very difficult to breathe. We have to think about this and do something. The air is heavily polluted in dense cities. It is very dangerous for the people living there. This causes serious health problems in front of them.
As our Prime Minister, you have accepted climate change as a reality. On behalf of all the children of the country today, on International Clean Air Day for Blue Sky, I want to make a request to you to please think about our future. You ask the authorities to strictly enforce all the rules and laws so that the citizens of India can breathe clean air.
UN decided to celebrate Clean Air Day last year
Last year, the United Nations General Assembly decided to celebrate International Clean Air Day for Blue Sky during its 74th session. Its purpose is to make the individual, community, corporate and government aware of the importance of clean and pure air.
India is the country most affected by air pollution
Chandra Bhushan, CEO of the International Forum for Environment, Sustainability and Technology (I-Forest), points out that clean air day is of paramount importance to India. India is the country most affected by air pollution. Statistics show that the country today consumes 90 million tonnes of coal, 40 million tonnes of biomass, 200 million tonnes of oil and 50 million tonnes of gas.
