The religious group which is conducting the yajna says it will heal many diseases and will also help in slowing the ozone depletion.
But the yajna which ended on Sunday was criticized by many environmentalists who say the thick smoke will only cause further damages.
Well, I remember my grandfather collecting a particular plant called ‘Thumba’ to create smoke using coal. The smoke created using Thumba used to drive the mosquitoes out. But nowadays I rarely get to see Thumba.
No idea whether the yajna is of any use to the ozone depletion. Incidentally, in a recent report
At least the yajna was able to create some awareness regarding the depletion of ozone layer.
