New Delhi: In India, there are plans to replace the distinctive sound of ambulance sirens with traditional flute and tabla music, starting in the capital New Delhi.
This was recently confirmed by New Delhi’s Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari in a statement.
He said that the loud sound of ambulance siren has a bad effect on people and they become confused.
In contrast, the sound of traditional melodies on musical instruments such as flute, tabla and harmonium gives the listener a pleasant feeling.
According to Nitin Gadkari, his ministry is reviewing various tunes that will soon replace ambulance sirens.
It should be noted that the specific sound of ambulance sirens around the world is aimed at alerting pedestrians and motorists in the event of an emergency so that they can leave the road and allow the ambulance to pass.
In such a situation, the music raised by the ambulance in the sound of drums, flute and harmonium etc. may become a source of entertainment for the common citizens but they may not consider it as a sign of emergency.
It would be premature to say anything about the possible effects of this change, but this aspect is important because the ambulance is not a normal vehicle, but it is the only way to reach patients and injured people in an emergency and to get them to medical aid in a timely manner. I use
