Sound Pollution


Like many other pollutions, sound pollution is endangering our living and our environment. The sound is a kind of energy which man has applied into various fields of everyday life with success. But in the process, the chances of sound pollution have also taken a great leap. Quietness is natural and highly necessary for peace of sound pollutions. Horns and whistles of different vehicles plying on the roads are polluting the environment a lot. Besides, the drivers often press the horns unnecessarily even near the schools and hospitals, which causes serious problems to the students and patients. Moreover, our young generation has a peculiar fascination towards listening music at high volume. Various shops and hotels at the roadsides also tune their audio system loudly to attract customers. Mikes and load speakers are also used on many occasions without considering any limitation. Shouting slogans on the roads as well as on the campus tells upon the peaceful atmosphere. The sounds of mills, factories, and power loom also contribute to sound pollution. So if we wish to control sound pollution, we need to develop awareness among the people and also enforce the law strictly.
