The air we breathe

This petition had 307 supporters

In case the news hasn’t reached you, the air  pollution levels in Delhi as well as NOIDA region have been on a tremendous rise. Delhi recorded its highest air pollution level this season and pollution in the national capital region is expected to remain severe for at least three more days unless wind speed picks up significantly.

I woke up around 5:30am, and when I saw the condition I was horrified. The smog condition in Indirapuram, Ghaziabad as of now is still terrible. There has been no improvement in the density of the smog making it more unbearable. My peers from different regions of NOIDA have also complaint of severe smog conditions in their area.

Today while going and coming back from school I noticed that the primary wing students had been given a holiday due to the rise in pollution levels. I couldn’t help but ask, don’t we  breathe the same air as they do?

I want to ask, who will be responsible if we fall sick ?

The students of classes 6,7,8,9,10,11 and 12 were not given a holiday. The consequences of this you may ask?

·         Suffocation

·         Itching in the eye area

·         Redness in the eyes

·         Head ache

·         Nausea

Many students complaint of vomiting and constant headaches, which were a distraction for us. Even at school we felt like we were out there. We wanna ask you, do we have a superior respiratory system than the children living in Delhi? We are inhaling just as much pollution as they are.

We, the senior students need to be healthy and in a condition to focus on our studies and give maximum output. Also, with the class 12th boards approaching im sure not many parents would want their ward to get sick at such a crucial period.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION FOR THE WELFARE OF SENIOR STUDENTS OF NOIDA, "Prevention is better than cure" Every signature counts!
