The measures adopted after a lot of hue and cry about pollution are like superficial treatment of a disease without going to its root cause. The Raja-Tama predominant mind and intellect are responsible for pollution and they can be made sattvik only by performing spiritual practice. Efforts to stop pollution without purification of the mind are superficial and ridiculous. It is like treating a TB patient with cough syrup instead of an appropriate TB medicine.
