A majority of villagers usually cook on the earthen stove or a three brick earthen burner which over a period of time is responsible for lung disease and blurred vision.
A hut enveloped in smoke and women trying to put up with burning eyes is a common sight in village homes. The eye-sight of hundreds of women is being affected besides causing respiratory problems to them due to inhaling of smoke. On the environmental front, there is a massive consumption of firewood and carbon emissions.
