Jharia Has Been Burning For 100 Years

Jharia Burning in Flames for a century!

A  fine sparkle of fire can lead to utter devastation in life and property, as well. Such is the enormous power of Fire. But there is a place in India which has been burning with massive flames for the past hundred years. Sounds Impossible.

Jharia Has Been Burning For 100 Years

Jharia coal mines in Dhanbad city of Jharkhand are the most prominent coal mines in India. They are well renowned for their production of “Coke.” Though the Britishers initially managed the mines, Gujarati people took over the control post the independence.

These mines are widespread in over 100 square miles of Area. And the underground flames were first experienced in 1916. And since these hazardous flames have remained untamed.

Jharia Coal mine is still burning?

Though the current government under the supervision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is making immense efforts to cease such grave concern, it would certainly cost India a huge economic crisis, which is quite sensitive at this moment of time.

It would cost a massive 1 billion dollars to evacuate the place and find the workers a new shelter to live and also to shut the untameable flames beneath the ground.

These lethal flames are now aggravating to more than 50 feet, which can certainly be felt by the workers or the nearby natives around the mines. But the question which arises in everyone’s mind is why was this grave-concern not ceased in its initial stages?

Is economy more important than the lives of the innocents? Is there no regard for human life? But these people have nowhere else to go as well and to manage the burden of their responsibilities, and it becomes inevitable for them to pick up their tools and work day in day out to satisfy the pangs in their stomachs. People are certainly living on the edge of the sword in Jharia Coal mines.

Jharia CoalField Underground Fire

Jharia underground fires have to lead to a certain blockage of coal, as well. It is estimated that 37 million tons of coal have succumbed to the brutal power of Flames.

Though it is not impossible to shut the flames down, certain measures can eventually lead to preventing the harmful effects of the underground flames. At this moment, the workers have access to the Gps and other motion detectors, which makes it quite easy for them to detect a danger-prone area.

But, it is just like avoiding the inevitable. The government should take immediate measures to avoid a huge catastrophe, which would consume a huge population and property as well.

Jharia Coal Mine Fire and It’s Impact

In the current scenario, The harmful elements which are extracted from the coal mines have 40% effluents of toxic Hydrogen compounds. This certainly is life threatening by all means.

The oxidation breaths fire to these flames, which is the sole reason why underground flames are aggravating for such a long period. Thus, the government should invest in controlling such elements as well.

These sorts of underground fires have even prevailed in countries like the USA and China, as well. But it seems that the whole world is specifically putting the blame on Indian territory for the emission of hazardous elements causing damages to the Ozone layer as well.

But the Indian government desperately needs to focus on the lives of thousands of people living in such sensitive places, as no one knows what nature is going to offer in the very next moment!
