Diwali Celeberation

Let me start with a Diwali Wish - Wish you all a Happy Diwali 2011....

Diwali is a festival which is celeberated across India with pomp and ceremony by the Hindus. It is a festival of lights during which we offer prayers to Goddess Lakshmi, celeberate the end of evil and express our joy by bursting crackers..

The cracking part of Diwali is the crack of cracking of crackers...which becomes uncontrollable at some point...Many of them start as early as 3-4 AM in the morning as if they need to lead by waking others....Disturbing their Sleep.Kids and Elderly people are taken for a toll by the noise pollution it creates.The bang continues upto late night till 11-12 pm so that rest assure no one has a good sleep.

Some feel that the amount of crackers burst by them represents their social status-Good Assumption

Apart from noise pollution it also has an impact on the environment...The smoke that gets released because of bursting crackers affects our 'Go GREEN' Mantra.

The good part is that many of the younger generation have stop bursting crackers for the following reasons:

- Noise Pollution
-Environment gets polluted
-Child labour involved in making crackers
-Burning crackers is same as burning Money-Let money be used effectively.
-Safety of Kids and Elderly people on the Road

I am not saying that we shoudln't burst crackers but we need to ensure that we do that within our limits and maintain the balance across all the elements involved.

So my kind appeal to celeberate a BALANCED and SAFE Diwali moving forward.
