Women’s World!

Pravallika Achyuthuni's blog

It was suggested to me by one of my lecturers to start an essay with a stat. So here it is…The female sex ratio in India has gone up in the last decade i.e from 2001-2011.It was 933 in 2001 while it is 940 in 2011( though not a significant increase!!). Guess what is the reason for this?? Do you think this has something to do with the Govt. schemes for eradicating female foeticide? If you said so, then I am sorry to say this, but you have loads of things to know. The reason for this is that the life expectancy of women has increased and nothing else! In fact, the child sex ratio(in the age group 0–6 years) in India has dropped to 914 females against 1,000 males – the lowest since Independence – in the provisional 2011 Census report. The ratio has declined from 927…

I too have to breathe !!

Birds tweeting, Air spreading its silence, Sun lighting… was all once upon a time, now a days we don’t have anything such as Fresh air to breathe, nor is there any clean water left in the cities.This is all because of the negligence of the people and mainly because of the “no time” fashion going on.

Clean Hyderabad

Every second person says, “I have no time to look after the city, If needed I will pay you the amount and you take care of the cleanliness and whatsoever but don’t ask me to get involved in that dirty work.”

Yes, that is true now a days without money there is no work which can be done but the same work cannot be completed unless there is humanity and willness to do. If everyone just pay and no one comes forward to even clean their own house’s garbage and blame the government for the stinking of the Pearl City Hyderabad, say whose mistake is it? Government’s or ours? I must say it’s neither of them. We must blame the time and fashion which runs out so fast and quick that man forgets what he should do and what he should depend on. Rather he does what he is dependent on and waits for his work. Which is a total waste.

Why am I writing all this matter is because of the immense increase in the pollution level in Hyderabad. Especially near the working areas and that day is not far when global warming will not be just patches rather we will have “Global Boiling.” The smoke, gases exerted by the vehicles are so harmful that there effect on the body is double  than smoking a cigarette. The gases gush through every opening in the body and skin of the body making it unable to breathe which turns the skin dark and pale. Further, not only the skin it is also the person itself.


Personal Experience

Daily dreaming about a blue lake and a Buddha Statue in the centre with speed boats here and there. Yes, this could be the dream Hussain Sagar or the TankBund Lake. But I ride through some greenish algae, plastic bags filled Lake where the Buddha standing in the centre cries out of pain asking for fresh air. That is the Present Hussain Sagar (TankBund Lake). Riding on my Activa, I daily travel through all that stuff loaded with heavy metal dose of pollution. My destination Lakdi-ka-pul, Saifabad. I must admit, anyone, literally anyone can fly away with the amount of pollution there. I am just not blaming that only place, even Hitech City(once my destination) is the same, but due to tree plantations we do not feel the push comparatively. Due to the dirty air everywhere there are breathing problems, Headaches, Red Eyes, Hair Fall, Skin damage, etc. There are also times when I felt dizzy and was about to have an accident but controlled myself. Stopped my vehicle aside, washed my face, rested for a while and then went back home.

The above mentioned symptoms can be seen in every second person riding a bike or travelling. If this is the case with people in pollution just for few minutes then what about the Police men who control the traffic from morning to evening.

According to the Integrated Environmental Strategies Program, Washington DC, USA the following are the past, present and future predictions:


I will not type any ideas or solutions for this slowly growing menace, as I follow the rules and switch of the my vehicle when at the traffic signal. I want some creative solutions from you all.

“This should not only be an eye opener to the Hyderabadi’s but also others because cleanliness from within is necessary not the outwards.”

Help reduce the pollution. Save the country, Save yourself.


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 6,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

As the day started of with an unusual dream. The news also had something unusual ongoing but sad. The 23-year-old victim of the brutal gang rape and assault in Delhi that had triggered an outrage across India died early this morning in Singapore after putting up a brave battle for life for nearly a fortnight.

It felt bad, I mean literally bad that there was someone whom the whole country cared wholeheartedly and now that she is not there, will the country come back to its old behavior? Will it degrade what ever it had raise in these 12 to 13 days? Will the people remember her only as a Rape Victim or a Topic to share or will they pledge in themselves that such “ghastly” acts do not happen again.

It is time for all of us to reflect on what has happened. All we must ensure is that such ghastly incident do not happen in future. This Indian brought a lot of Indianism in me. Hoping it has also ignited some of it in you.

May her soul Rest In Peace.
