Unbearable odour dampens spirit of devotees

Ujjain : With the sheer mismanagement on Simhastha Mela premises, the pilgrims are compelled to go through a dreadful experience as the unbearable odour fuming from the effluents leaking out of the septic tanks has made life hell across the fair. As the month-long Simhastha Mahakumbh is heading towards its culmination, scores of anomalies practised by the administration has surfaced. The biggest problem the pilgrims are going through is the odour spreading over the Mela area due to the effluents leaking out of the septic tanks built temporarily in the encampments and for the public use. Septic tanks built for the public toilets across the Mela premises are getting overflow with the large influx of devotees using the toilets. The Mela authority has failed to manage the things and hence the odour is causing great inconvenience to the visitors. As the final Shahi Snan is going to be held on May 21, enormous crowd is thronging to the Mela premises. People are compelled to defecate in open as the community toilets are not cleaned properly. Even the sewerage lines are broken at certain places which are posing a great problem to the visitors. The community toilet near Bharat Seva Ashram in Bhukhi Mata sector is the place where visitors are unable to use the toilets due to the mud and mire prevailed in its surrounding. The odour fuming out of the septic tanks has made life hell for the saints and their guests residing in the surrounding.

How to get Rid of Cigarette Smoke Smell

While researching this topic, I asked a relative for some practical advice to rid my house of cigarette smoke. Their answer was immediate and to the point: QUIT SMOKING! Who isn’t tired of hearing that one? The truth is that cigarette smoke permeates into our furniture, our carpets, our walls, our windows, and just about every other nook and cranny in our homes. Us smokers are generally unaware of the smell. The same problem exists in our cars. There are large numbers of people who are allergic to cigarette smoke, or suffer some very serious breathing issues when they come into contact with it. Even the lingering smell of cigarette smoke left in a home or a car by its previous occupants is not just noticeable, but may be close to intolerable to a non-smoker. So if you’re not ready to kick the habit just yet, let’s explore some methods of controlling the cigarette smoke in our environments. Who knows, the next person to bask in your odor may be a hot date or prospective employer and if…

How does a tree neutralise your blog’s carbon footprint?

A question always asked around the net can be answered visiting

How much carbon dioxide does your blog create?

According to a study by Alexander Wissner-Gross, PhD, physicist at Harvard University and environmental activist, an average website causes about 0.02g (0,0008oz.) of carbon dioxide for each visit. Assuming an average blog gets 15,000 visits a month, it has yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 3,6kg (8lb.). This can mainly be tracked back to the immense energy usage from (mainframe) computers, servers, and their cooling systems.

How much carbon dioxide does a tree absorb?

Unfortunately, no precise answer is possible. The carbon dioxide absorption of a tree can differ a lot. The amount of carbon dioxide that a tree can absorb depends on the type of tree, light exposure, le…


With increasing Environment Protection Authority (EPA), WorkSafe and council requirements, dust and odours can no longer be managed with a simple garden hose. In providing a solution, ANOTEC has leveraged its more than 20 years of experience across Australia and New Zealand to reduce business costs and help them find best practice equipment for the task. ANOTEC works with landfills and transfer station owners/operators to provide a custom solution to the challenges within the industry. What is it worth to a company to be issued an abatement notice over a site? That’s compared to paying a modest cost for an odour and dust management solution, allowing you to continue working uninterrupted. The technology utilises pumps to generate microscopic air droplets capable of weighing down and suppressing dust and odour. The key to effective dust suppression is creating minute water droplets in the fine micron range that are a similar size to the dust particles the site manager is hoping to…
