Paragraph : Sound Pollution

Sound Pollution

Sound pollution is very acute in industrial towns and cities. When the tolerance limit of sound exceeds 45 decibels, it is known as sound pollution. Sound pollution is very harmful to health. The increasing use of machines in everyday life is the primary source of sound pollution. Thousands of buses, trucks, cars etc. create intolerable noise to our ears. Mills and factories and exposed to city people. Besides, indiscriminate use of loudspeakers, use of hydraulic horns by the motorists, the mike used at meetings etc. make sound pollution. Excessive noise may lead to deafness and an increase in high pressure. Thus, sound pollution can do irreversible damage to human health and to the well being of a man. To minimize sound pollution unfit vehicles should be banned. Again, the use of hydraulic horns in vehicles can be banned. Mills and factories can be shifted at un-residential area. However, proper legislation and public co-operation should be sought to minimize noise pollution.

Same paragraph collected from another book

Like many other pollutions, sound pollution is endangering our living and our environment. The sound is a kind of energy which man has applied to various fields of everyday life with success. But in the process, the chances of sound pollution have also taken a great leap. Quietness is natural and highly necessary for peace of sound pollutions. Horns and whistles of different vehicles plying on the roads are polluting the environment a lot. Besides, the drivers often press the horns unnecessarily even near the schools and hospitals, which causes serious problems to the students and patients. Moreover, our young generation has a peculiar fascination towards listening music at high volume. Various shops and hotels at the roadsides also tune their audio system loudly to attract customers. Mikes and load speakers are also used on many occasions without considering any limitation. Shouting slogans on the roads as well as on the campus tells upon the peaceful atmosphere. The sounds of mills, factories, and power loom also contribute to sound pollution. So if we wish to control sound pollution, we need to develop awareness among the people and also enforce the law strictly.
