Managing editor at Vidarbha Mirror and Director of Swaraj Group Sandesh Singalkar told NationNext, In last 15 days, three people, including a child, died due to the nylon string in Nagpur. It is only in January that people and government pay attention towards this issue and act upon it. In order to save such mishaps, it is necessary to figure out the number of nylon string dealers in the city from the beginning, he said.


Birds are majorly affected in such mishaps. When we talk about sparrows, one might find it extremely difficult to spot an original sparrow in Nagpur, due to increasing mobile towers causing their deaths. All kinds and species of birds are required today, in order to maintain a balance in biodiversity.


Most of the citizens fly kites during the evening hours, and since sharp-edged nylon strings are very difficult to break, many birds get entangled in them and sustain severe injuries. When there are no such provisions in the city to rescue human beings during these mishaps, we can least expect any provisions to rescue birds, he said.



Hence, in order to spread awareness, these volunteers decided to enlist several contacts, who would be able to assist citizens and direct them to nearby veterinary hospitals in Nagpur, he added
