The report also says the probability of a baby being born with congenital anomalies is several times higher in areas affected by this issue. Dr. Samaddar and his people had surveyed around 20,000 families from the affected areas and found that almost 3,000 children have been born with serious deformities and a majority of them suffer from multiple deformities.
It is a challenge to find a lasting solution to the issue. Debates should be initiated whether to cordon off the entire area where the gas leak had taken place and declare it as a no-man's zone so that dwelling people can then be moved to safer places. From first to second and now to third generation, some people are suffering due to this issue and therefore concerned quarters must do something to ensure that there is a stop to this, and the fourth generation at least can have a peaceful normal life without any side effects.
Money definitely helps under such circumtances if due to poverty people are unable to make a move to safer place. Therefore, ways and means should be found out, including monetary benefits given to people like Ganga (Ram Kali's grandaughter) and many more who are unable to make a choice in the present scenario. More doable thought and suggestions are needed to help the people affected.
