Museums and Galleries – Essay;

Art Gallery Inside

Art Gallery Inside

The government spends about £220 million a year supporting museums and galleries in the UK, and a similar amount subsiding the visual and performing arts. This is a huge sum to spend on minority interests, and the money would be better spent on more important things. It should be up to the people who enjoy cultural attractions to pay for them.

I feel government must spend required amount of money on preservation and upkeep of Museums and Galleries. I disagree to the statement that the said huge sum is spent on minority interests.
In this essay we shall look at the reasons justifying this view point.

A museum is an institution that cares for a collection of artefacts and other objects of scientific, artistic, cultural, or historical importance and makes them available for public viewing through exhibits that may be permanent or temporary. Most large museums are located in major cities throughout the world and some more exist in smaller cities, towns and even the countryside.

Secondly, history is the study of the past, focused on human activity and leading up to the present day. More precisely, history is the continuous, systematic narration of past events with extensive research work into it. The Museums and Galleries tell us about the past and History and are the most important and valid source for the study and research work on the subject of history for historians; those who study it as a profession.

Museums and Galleries attract tourists from various countries and thereby importance of that place increases. It also earns and boosts the revenue to the government through department of tourism this strengthens economy of the nation.

It has been very validly explained in a quotation by David C. McCullough; that “History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are”.

In nutshell the Governments must spend necessary funds to preserve Museums and Galleries in the best possible manner.

Pollution Free Vehicles

With the rise in population, number of automobile vehicles has increased considerably. In India particularly, the population count is highly alarming at 1.22 Billion. (122 Crore). The life has become very fast and vehicle is a dire necessity for all of us. None can imagine a life without a vehicle.

The main Prime mover in vehicles is the petroleum products like Petrol and Diesel. The motor vehicles work on the principle of Internal Combustion. Hence the exhaust emits gases like carbon-di-oxide and carbon mono oxide. Carbon Mono Oxide is a poisonous gas that is injurious to human and animal health. Excessive vehicles will discharge excessive polluting gases in the air thereby causing environmental pollution. At the same time the enormously hot engines of automobiles emit heat in the air thereby adding up in Global Warming.

On the other hand, Oil prices keep on increasing day and on. Inflation is sky rocketing. Affordability becomes constraint with many automobiles owners. Hence they mix comparatively cheaper products like Kerosene with the petrol and run the automobiles either for winning bread or for business purpose. This gives out tremendous amount of very harmful smoke in the air. Also many two-wheeler owners, who have petro-oil engines, put excessive oil or other pollutants thereby spoiling the environment by way of severe pollution.

In order to control pollution we can adopt the following measures: –
1. Minimise the use of vehicles.
2. Switch off the engines while facing a red-light.
3. Use only recommended fuel.
4. Use only recommended lubricants in correct volumes.
5. Check vehicle for PUC (Pollution under Control) at designated gas stations.
6. Ensure regular periodic maintenance of vehicles.
7. Ensure recommended tyre pressure.
8. Vehicle pooling for common destination.

In recent past some companies have manufactured battery operated two wheelers. This operates for limited distances with limited load. If population with such needs use this type of vehicle shall be a great contribution toward reducing pollution and global warming.

Summing-up, Pollution Free Vehicle is the need of the hour in this global environmental crisis.
