Diwali is a holy festivals that brings joy, peace and happiness. It is a festival of lights, not of fumes and firecrackers. But we play it in the wrong way. Just to celebrate happiness, we burn thousand crores of rupees that brings devastating results as sound and air pollution. Instead of that, we can donate that money to orphans, feed a large number of hungers and can even donate it to our country so that our engineers and scientist do not lack budget. This will actually help us to improve our lifestyle and standard.
Report says, One Diwali night pollutes a city as much as it gets polluted in whole year. By bursting crackers, we are emitting poisonous gasses like SO2, CO2 and CO and eventually we will be inhaling these gasses which will cause serious disease and problems to our health. Even the firecracker-garbage contains toxic chemicals like phosphorous and ammonium nitrate. These fire-crackers also produce immense sounds causing sound pollution. Apart of that, the loud sound is not good for newly born babies and old people.
India burns more than 600 crore rupees every year on Deepavali. A country which allocates only 450 to its scientists for interplanetary mission but spends much more on firecrackers, that too for polluting the nature? As a responsible citizen of India, we need to rethink on what we are doing.
