The Global Burden of Disease study, released last month, provides shocking insights into what is causing deaths and disabilities among people — as many as 328 diseases in 195 countries continue to kill and cripple. India, one of the most populous nations, figures starkly in the study, which also measures injuries and risk factors.

In the wake of rising pollution due to bursting of firecrackers, industry body Assocham today said clean environment should be a combined responsibility of the Centre, state governments, civil society and public at large, and not of the apex court alone. The industry body said enforcement of the Supreme court order banning sale of firecrackers should have been ensured by the Union Environment Ministry, Delhi government, the state governments of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana in the entire NCR. Air pollution in the capital soared to alarming levels on Diwali night, reaching as much as five times over the safe limit because of bursting of firecrackers despite a Supreme Court ban on their sale in the NCR, said a survey. "The economic interest of the traders and the manufacturers was involved but once the Supreme Court banned sale of fire crackers, the enforcement of the order should have been ensured by the Union Environment Ministry, Delhi Government, state governments of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana in the entire ...
