    The Bonalu festival in Hyderabad is a time of joyful celebration. However, it also brings attention to important environmental and health issues. The festival marks the beginning of the rainy season, which increases the risk of waterborne diseases, especially among children. The monsoon rains can lead to water contamination and the outbreak of illnesses that can be devastating for young lives.

    Stagnant rainwater during this time becomes a breeding ground for disease-carrying mosquitoes like those responsible for malaria and dengue. Inadequate sanitation and waste management practices can also contaminate water sources with harmful bacteria and viruses.
