Muse volunteers hold placards to cut down noise pollution near hospitals in Thane


Muse volunteers hold placards to cut down noise pollution near hospitals in Thane
SHARE

Members of ‘Muse’ a youth organization of Thane stood outside hospitals at Khopat, Thane spreading awareness about noise pollution on the last day of Ganesh immersion. With few conversions, people coming with bands and mammoth speakers continued to flout all the noise rules even after reading pollution messages. On the last day, noise reported was beyond 90 decibels.

Many groups were clearly seen flouting noise rules by using Dolby speakers and speaker walls. There were consistent fire crackers which made the situation extremely noisy. Khopat is a vulnerable spot as it is surrounded by three hospitals on the main road - Saahil Hospital, Lifeline Hospital, and Nath hospital.


On the last day of immersion, we took our 20 volunteers, including local citizens and stood at Khopat and tried convincing the mandals to keep the volume low while passing hospitals. It is very difficult to make them understand the cons of noise pollution and how it affects patients health
Nishant Bangera, Founder, Muse

This year, two other organisations - Thane Matadar Jaagran Abhiyan and Thanekars joined hands with Muse to record noise levels across the city outside Hospitals.
