Breathe Easy; Choose a Healthy Place to Reside
November 23rd, 2021
Let’s face the truth; climate change is wreaking havoc on environment. Be it burning fuel or misusing plastics, we are leaving no stone unturned to contribute to the environmental pollution in every possible way. It is meaningless to move towards an ultra-advanced society if we are unable to secure a healthy pollution free place to live for ourselves.
Recently, air quality of Delhi has hit its lowest level, compelling State Government to call for a fresh lock down. System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) has recorded the overall air quality index (AQI) of Delhi at 499 on Saturday 13, 2021, according to news report. An AQI between zero and 50 is considered ‘good’, 51 and 100 ‘satisfactory’, 101 and 200 ‘moderate’, 201 and 300 ‘poor’, 301 and 400 ‘very poor’, and 401 and 500 ‘severe’. While taking cognizance of the issue, Supreme Court of India urged both the State and Central government to take appropriate actions to tackle the situation effectively.
However, Delhi already had its name etched as one of the world’s top 10 cities with worst air quality, based on a study conducted by a climate group IQAir. Ever exploding population, unchecked vehicle emission, never ending construction work, tireless industrial activities are pushing the city towards ‘development’ while forcing it away from a healthy environment. Slowly concrete jungle engulfing the greenery it once had.
It is a wakeup call for us to choose wisely while investing in real estate. Dehradun is situated at the foot of mist wrapped lower mountains of Himalayas. Almost 70 kilometres long, Doon valley has a history of being a fertile area abundant in agriculture and horticulture products. Lush green forest and scores of rivulets and canals establish it as a biodiversity-rich area. This smog free picturesque capital of Uttarakhand is no doubt an environment friendly place to have a peaceful life. With a vision to provide the residents a wholesome experience of living with nature, Windlass Developer has consciously chosen Dehradun to facilitate its goal of developing a smart township.
Clean air of hills, laden with sweet aroma of flowers makes Dehradun a perfect home for many. It is gradually emerging as an important economic hub with proper pollution control measures in place. Surrounded by mystic mountains, Doon Valley has pleasant summer, exciting winters and a spectacular autumn. To beat pollution and cost of living, Dehradun is definitely the best place to settle in.
Frankly speaking, to mitigate the risk of environmental pollution we have to share the burden of responsibilities too. It has been observed that in search of a better life we often flock to already clogged metro cities resulting in various environmental hazards. Instead, if we choose a tier 2 city as a place to reside, it will solve many problems and contribute towards a meaningful and healthy growth of our country. Even government needs to encourage people to move to such cities by improving infrastructures and expanding professional opportunities. Elevating the status of Dehradun to a smart city can be considered as a positive step forward and owning an apartment at Windlass River Valley Township will only qualify the endeavor.
