The insensitive use of loudspeakers has become quite a nuisance in the society. The most annoying thing is that loudspeakers have now become an integral part of almost all celebrations. People seem to believe that even private occasions like marriages, engagements, birthdays would be incomplete without blaring of loudspeakers.
Noise pollution is already one of the greatest problems that people living in cities have to deal with. The excessive use of loudspeaker makes it worse. Of course, there are occasion where their use is absolutely necessary but I see no justification in using them during party and meetings.
The worst-hit by this improper use of loudspeakers are the elderly and the children. Due to the excessive noise, elderly can’t sleep properly and the children can’t concentrate on their studies. It is high time that the authorities must do something to regulate use of loudspeakers.
