Gujarat has been a most happening centre of festive celebrations in a magnanimous way. However, come Ganesh Puja followed by Navratri & Diwali/Gujarati New Year the evenings are stretched beyond midnight with Blaring high decibel Sound system, affecting the long term health of the people in the vicinity by compromising sleep time & mental peace of the students & old people around.
Diwali entails before & after fire-crackers not only detrimental to the air pollution but a war-front like menacing sounds.
Without much going into the above obvious facts, there is no direct control by the law makers except the affected citizens raise there voices by calling police help or simply continue to bear.
There is very effective implementation in Mumbai region for controlling such abnormal disturbances.
Gujarat region has very lenient approach on this. Especially, Surat.
My request is to the law makers, local administration & police to have blanket control for the high volume sounds in the Pandals, Navratri Venues etc to bring the respite from these nuisance causing social gatherings/celebrations.
