Diwali (popularly known as festival of lights) is one of the biggest festival of India, celebrated with great enthusiasm and happiness. Different colorful varieties of fireworks are always associated with this festival. On this auspicious day, people light up diyas and candles all around their house. They perform Laxmi Puja (Goddess of wealth) in the evening and seek divine blessings of Goddess of Wealth. The festival of Diwali is never complete without exchange of gifts. People present diwali gifts to all near and dear ones.
For most people lighting of firecrackers is the highlight of Diwali but little do people realize that in our increasingly populated and polluted cities, the temporary joy of watching the firecrackers is soon replaced by the intense air pollution caused by these.
So most of us, especially the younger generation, is taking an oath – “No More Crackers for a Greener Tomorrow“.
Lets all join together in spreading the LIGHT therefore making the world a better place, a place where there’s no room for darkness.
