Diwali is popularly known as the “Festival of Lights” in India. Apart from listening to mythological stories, worshipping God and receiving sweets and gifts, what an Indian looks forward to the most are crackers. Bursting crackers might give Indian teenagers some pleasure but these crackers also harm the environment and other people around them. Our Earth is already facing a lot of problems like Global Warming, Air Pollution, Sound Pollution etc. So, parents should strongly advise their children to avoid bursting crackers this Diwali.
Bursting crackers is a torture for animals also especially pets, stray dogs, cats, birds that are in direct danger of getting harmed by the crackers and their loud noise. It is time for you to bring the change and stop bursting crackers to save our climate. Teenagers should be taught the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling so that they stop bursting crackers and adopt ways to make our planet pollution-free.
Several Bollywood and Tollywood celebrities had done campaign against this from time to time. This year super actress Mimi Chakraborty, who had also done a campaign like last year asked for support on her campaign on #SoundFreeDiwali. She asked for public support on her social media account and requested people to make videos on saying no to crackers and saving animals. The best 5 videos will be displayed on her social media page. This is a great concept so let us make it successful by saying “NO” to crackers.
