Pollution is one of the first causes of diseases and deaths within the world has slowly and steadily poisoned the environment also. The health of the environment is now dependent upon us. We cannot afford to ignore the warning signs and continue with anti-environmental activities. If we don't mend our ways it'll not just affect the environment but will weaken us also. It is after all a symbiotic relationship that we share with the environment. Diwali the foremost popular Hindu festival of sunshine has lately come to be related to fireworks. Such a lot so that people are blatantly ignoring the environmental hazards related to it and continued to burst crackers in celebration of the festival.
Begin your day by ornamenting your house with lovely fragrant flowers. Marigold jasmine roses orchids and twisted mango leaves are often an honest choice. Beautify your house with attractive paper lanterns mystical hangings traditional bells and vibrant rangoli. You'll also pamper yourself by spending sometime of the day dressing up in traditional attire. Visit your closest friends and relatives soon with gifts that are somewhat rare than usual. Spare sometime prior to Diwali thinking and picking such gifts and cape them together with your marked styles.
After the Lakshmi pooja within the evening, you'll substitute fireworks with a live musical evening. You'll plan a little close-knit family and friends get together at your home. Bonfire and few games can add spice to the evening. Complement the party with an upscale candlelight dinner. It'll provide a good texture to the festival.
There is much you'll do to avoid crackers. Visit an adulthood home or orphanage to celebrate such occasions with those that don't have a family. Also, many of us cannot afford a Diwali celebration. Curtail your crackers expenditure and take out clothes and gifts for them. Discourage your kids to burn crackers and inculcate these good morals in them. Your initiation within the drive to mention no to crackers also can save child laborers engaged in a fireworks factory. A sheer thought of accomplishment of those responsibilities towards society gives an immense and long-lasting satisfaction that fireworks can never give.
