served a show-cause notice to Islamic preacher
Zakir Naik’s NGO, Islamic

Post-Diwali pollution spike worst in 5 years
DAMINI NATH
NEW DELHI: The Capital’s air

quality this post-Diwali has
been the worst in five years,
with Monday recording a
huge spike in concentration
levels of fine particulate
matter.
With air quality failing to
bounce back ever 24 hours
after the festival because of
lack of wind, Delhiites have
had to suffer longer this
year.
According to the System
of Air Quality and Weather
Forecasting and Research
(SAFAR) of the Union
Earth Science Ministry, the
average level of PM2.5 was
around 300 micrograms
per cubic metre or five
times the standard of 60 on
Diwali day. On Monday, the
PM2.5 level shot up to over

600 micrograms per cubic
metre.
With the weather conditions unfavourable for dispersion, the pollution remained ‘severe’ on Tuesday
as well, with PM2.5 being
recorded at 315 micrograms
per cubic metre and PM10
at 468 or four times the safe
level of 100.

In comparison, the days
after Diwali in 2012, 2013,
2014 and 2015 saw much
lower PM2.5 levels. Last
year, the PM2.5 level after
Diwali was just under 200
micrograms per cubic
metre, and the year before
it was about 250. Apart
from 2015, the days after Diwali in 2012, 2013 and 2014

saw lower PM2.5 levels
than the day of the festival.
According to SAFAR, the
air quality is expected to
improve slightly only on
Wednesday, but it will still
be “very poor”.
“The impact of firecracker emissions has been
seen for a longer duration
this year due to low dispersion. We need to focus on
year-round plans to combat
pollution, not just one day,”
said Anumita Roychowdhury of the Centre for
Science and Environment.
She added that the State
government should already
have had in place short, medium and long term plans
to deal with pollution, particularly the spike in
winter.

Fourteen centuries later, Xuan Zang to build another bridge to India
Chinese diplomats are using the famous traveller’s legacy to rekindle ‘cooperation’ and overcome many points of distrust
SUVOJIT BAGCHI
KOLKATA: Seventh century
Chinese pilgrim and
scholar-monk Xuan Zang,
also known as HsüanTsang, is a travellerhistorian familiar to
Indians.
The Chinese Consulate
General in Kolkata has
decided to use his work at a
public event here to explain
the depth of China’s
relationship with India over
the last 1400 years and
focus on “cooperation.”
The themed seminar on
“Xuan Zang and ChinaIndia Friendly Interactions”
next week will trace the

philosopher’s role “in
strengthening Indo-China
relations.” It is organised by
the Consulate in
association with Nalanda
University.
Ma Zhanwu, the Consul
General, said India and
China have a long history of
“shared interests” and the
time is just right to discuss
them.
“We should not focus on
differences and overlook
shared interests and
[should not] ignore the
possibility of cooperation.
We are having this seminar
to send this message to the
people in India,” Mr.
Zhanwu told The Hindu.

Ties between the
neighbours have dipped in
recent months over
differences on India’s entry
to the Nuclear Suppliers
Group, UN terror listing of
Masood Azhar and
campaign against Chinese
goods.
But the effort is to focus
on “cooperation” rather
than “competition.”
In the decade that began
in 630 AD, Xuan Zang came
to India through Kashmir
after visiting Central Asia,
Iran and Afghanistan. He
travelled from north to east
during his 14-year stay and
lived in Bihar for a couple of
years. At Nalanda

local languages and
discovered Buddhist stupas.
“He was offered a stay in
Nalanda but he left to write,
and provided detailed
descriptions of 7th century
India and its Buddhist links
with China. The seminar
will focus on Xuan Zang’s
enormous contribution to
connect two of the oldest
civilisations,” Mr. Zhanwu
said.

Sites unexplored
Many of Xuan Zang’s
sites are yet to be explored.
The Consulate is
coordinating with K.P.
Jayaswal Institute, a Patnabased archaeological
institution under the Bihar
Government, to study
stupas.

Excavation would be
done in varied locations in
Bihar, depending on
clearance from
Archaeological Survey of
India and the Bihar
Government.

the funds from them

Institute director Bijoy

The discussion related to

Long working hours bad for heart
Study says work-related stress is a major cause of cardiac arrest among young professionals
BINDU SHAJAN PERAPPADAN
NEW DELHI: Here is why you

taking a few days off from

study has suggested that
longer working hours and
work-related stress are the
major causes of cardiac

During the study, it was revealed that long work hours
(48 per cent), work pressure

the top three cause of workrelated stress. The other
reasons included lack of role
clarity, personal and professional relationship conflict,
inability to recognise stress
and managers’ inability to

not surprising that stress

‘Illegal’ construction: HC seeks govt’s reply
Court notice comes after a petition sought demolition of a factory near Tughlakabad village
NEW DELHI: The Delhi High

Court has sought the response of the government
and the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) over a plea
seeking demolition of a factory, allegedly built illegally
on government land, near the
protected area of the historic
Tughlakabad village.
A bench of Chief Justice G
Rohini and Justice Sangita
Dhingra Sehgal issued notices to the government and
the ASI, asking them to file

their response by January 13,

The plea has alleged that a
factory has been built illegally on government land in
Tughlakabad and the concerned authorities should return the land to the ASI.
SC order ‘violation’
It claimed that despite the
SC's February 2016 order declaring the whole of Tughlakabad as protected, illegal
construction was still being

carried out. "The SC has directed the ASI not to allow any
land grabbing in the said protected area and public land.
Despite the direction... there
was unauthorised construction on the aforesaid land falling within the protected area
of ASI," said the plea, filed by
Vikas Bakshi, president of an
NGO.During the hearing on
the plea, advocate Shakil
Akhtar, appearing for the petitioner, referred to the February 4 apex court order descri

bing the Tughlakabad Fort as
one of national importance
and declaring it a protected
monument. The petitioner
also alleged that he had filed
complaints with the authorities but no action has yet been
taken.
The petitioner also sought
that the land be returned to
the ASI and a "departmental
enquiry" against the officials
concerned for their failure to
take action in the matter till
