A huge layer of pollution is spreading its legs across South Asia is cutting down sunlight by 10 % over India, hence spoiling agriculture, changing the rainfall patterns and putting down hundreds of thousands people at risk, according to a new study. The startling findings of scientists working with the United Nations Environment Programme shows that the spectacular economic growth seen in this part of the world in the past decade may soon falter as a result of this pollution. A research is conducted in India shows that the haze caused by pollution might be reducing winter rice harvests by 10%. Results prove that haze is made up of mass of ash, acides, aerosols and other particles disrupting weather systems. Acids in the rain may be falling as acid rain, have the capacity to destroy crops and trees.

The pollution that is forming the haze could be leading to several hundreds and thousands of premature deaths as a result of higher levels of respiratory problems. The number of deaths is increasing like anything every year, which is an issue of major concern.

India, China and Indonesia are the worst affected owing to their population density, economic growth and declining forest cover.

Passage

Snug in mother’s bosom

The newly born

Rests in warm embrace,

Listening to mother’s heart beat

Love takes another form

In the friendship of mates,

Eating, playing and fighting,

Childhood moves on to youth,

The irresistible attraction

Of the opposite sexes,

Brings a fiery love

Through tempestuous adulthood.

This melts into paternal love

Losing sleep when a child is sick

Untold pleasure in his achievements,

And anxiety in his misfortunes.

Old age brings another love,

And lust for life

Seeking pleasures when pleasure recedes,

And love gets colder by the day.

Inexorably moving towards the end

The ultimate love lies ahead.

But through changing seasons.

It has been all the way.
