YOUNGEST SOCIAL ACTIVISTS RALLY AGAINST NOISE POLLUTION!
MET Rishikul Vidyalaya formed a Human Chain of over 350
in a movement against noise pollution.
Mumbai has been witness to innumerable rallies. But what makes this ‘Human Chain to Fight Noise Pollution’ rally so very unique is the fact that over 300 students from Std. I to VIII of MET Rishikul Vidyalaya, Bandra, along with 40 teachers and representatives of the PTA created a human chain.
This chain was formed from MET Complex and around Lilavati hospital, Bandra Reclamation to alongside the Mt. Carmel Church on September 23, 2011 between 9 am to 10 am and 2pm to 3 pm. MRV students from each class recorded the noise levels twice daily, in the morning and in the afternoon with the help of a decibel meter. The current average noise pollution recorded by the students was in the range of 70 – 90 decibels. The ideal level should be 40 – 50 decibels. By observing this for over a week, teams of MRV students had created banners, slogans and placards using eco-friendly material. This rally intended to urge BMC put up sign boards, LCD display boards etc. against noise pollution, and an appeal to the public at large to curb honking around this sensitive area, primarily because there are schools, colleges, hospitals, old age home and places of worship in the vicinity.
