Lightning crackers has been a part of our tradition to celebrate DIWALI, but we should consider the increasing level of pollution which are causing environmental hazards. We should have to think about the other creatures that live in the same environment. It should not become tough for them to survive. So, it’s an appeal from outside as well. An advisory has also been released from the Government to minimize the level of pollution. Please make this Diwali a cracker free Diwali. Use green crackers instead of others which cause pollution in the environment. Instead of burning crackers you can spend the money to buy clothes and sweets for the poor ones who are in the need. So, just try to make their festival full of joy and happiness with a small start from this Diwali. You can give your old clothes as well.
