The first condition of progress is the removal of censorship.
– George Bernard Shaw
“Ban” such a common word for most Indians and half an abuse for most Delhiites.
Is banning a solution for anything under the sky?
Gujarat is alcohol free state or so they say. But see the below figures.
Alcohol ban was is implemented in Bihar earlier this year. But Bihar being Bihar knows how to get hands on things which are banned in this country.
You might ask why am I limiting my argument only towards ban on alcohol and not other things like beef, porn or homosexuality.
My answer to this is, if there is one thing that unites India from Kashmir to Kanyakumari it is alcohol. There is no conversation more honest than two drunk people talking to each other.
In the wake of recent ban of sale of crackers Delhi. In my opinion it is a bad idea especially for a place like Delhi where people have a special liking to create their own rules.
Air quality of Delhi is pathetic , the world knows it but if citizens by themselves do not take responsibility of their health, this ban will be counter-productive. We have enough hate-mongers in the country who will change this debate from a health prospective to hate prospective.
Air quality in Delhi is so bad that , even trees have started giving out CO2 instead of O2.
Delhi and many of our cities choke everyday due to pollution caused by various by vehicles and factories.
Placing a ban on a specific festival will only create a rebellion which is not good for country like India where various beliefs co-exits.
Bans work in countries which do not work on democracy, bans work in countries where people follow leader blindly (off course India is getting there but still better).
If you think you are affected by pollution caused by crackers take the effort to educate people, organize a peaceful march, run campaigns on social media. This might take a long time but that’s how democracies work.
We’ll if you like still want banning things, please ban.
