Noise-free Diwali

The Supreme Court of India has banned the use of crackers in Delhi during Diwali this year. This will reduce both air and noise pollution.
A similar 'ban' was voluntarily imposed by the citizens of Delhi in 1997 or so. The movement leading to that ban was spearheaded by school children. Ghumakkad wrote about it in an earlier story titled 'Just say No to Crackers'. The story remains as relevant today.

Let us celebrate Diwali which is noise-free and pollution free. Use earthenware diya दिया like the one in the picture below. We performed 'dhan teras' धन तेरस puja today using a diya. 

Together we can make a difference!

Happy Diwali to all,
