Diwali is supposed to be festival of lights in India. However, off late things have gone awry on the whole meaning of this festival. Nowadays, it is more of all possible kinds of environmental pollution. All thanks to crackers! If you have not read this article about crackers and child labor behind that industry on my blog yet, read it now. As a customary caution, I am sharing this post with you all so that at least some amount of awareness will help towards eco-friendly celebrations of this festival.
Found this very intuitive and eye catching message poster shared on Facebook and re-sharing it here.
PS: This photo collage is NOT my work. Facebook share had a mention of ‘Credits: Gurmeet Sapal’. Creative work & copyright remains with the creator who shared it initially on fb.
As always, scribbling something here without prior work is not my forte. Last year around the same time started investing in ‘Rang De’ with the money that I saved on crackers. It all started with as little as INR 2000/- last year for diwali, and today I am proud to say that my investment on rural entrepreneurs has increased multiple times. Here is the link for my complete Rang De portfolio of investment on such a great fantastic work that team is doing. Rang De’s vision is to make poverty history in India by reaching out to underserved communities through microcredit. They are striving to do this through a network of committed field partners and social investors, by offering microcredit that has a positive impact on business, education, health and environment of the communities they work with. Feel feel to consider using the money you spend on crackers for something more meaningful that really lights up the lives of many around us. That would be the right way to celebrate Diwali.

Ma’am i would like you to know that according to the statistics provided by the indian government, in that single day(on Diwali itself) the crackers burnt lead to 70% more pollution that is caused by the smoke emitted by cigrattes and 30-40% more than your cars. I am supporting you to ban the cigarettes…hukka and all! But think yourself could you like ban one of the most used vehicle…..the supplement!!! No…..but ufcorse the crackers, I don’t think that anyone survive on the smoke emitted by them or on the irritating noise they produce!!!
guysss…. i must suggest you to watch ‘CARBON’ . It’s a short movie by nawazuddin siddiqui. its about air pollution. guyyss we are only the future of the world .world is in our hand and we have to save the world . we are going on wrong way… SAVE THE FUTURE , SAVE THE WORLD, SAVE THE NEXT GENERATION

And we are still waiting for the next post. 🙂 Trust all well.
I really liked this article as crackers are simply waste of money. People spend thousands for this 5 minute enjoyment, but in a country like India even in Diwali many people are sleeping even without eating a full meal. What is the point of enjoying such diwali? Better to spend those money to them only.
