Diwali and Environment A Serious Thought…
But in this post, I would like to bring out a serious thought on this celebration.
Yes, let us celebrate this Diwali without hurting our nature! Let us make note of how much damage we are adding to nature by bursting crackers.
Our natural resources are perishing due to already existing heavy heat which we ourselves produce in different means which in most cases we cannot control or can avoid.Diwali celebrations, few serious thoughts to look into... via Philipscom Click To Tweet
One such thing is bursting crackers on this season.
But at this juncture, let us make a decision to celebrate this Diwali without bursting crackers and save our environment ourselves, and our future generation from that alarming calamity called “Global Warming”!
I hope my celebrating fellow beings, my beloved friends, and my families take this seriously in its better sense and enjoy the festival without bursting crackers. :-)
Diwali and Environment, Let us Think Differently
Why can’t we think in a different way?
Check out the following lines.
Based on the serious impact crackers can make on us and on our environment we need to change our lifestyle or concept on this celebration.
Why can’t we share the money we spent on crackers with a person who is struggling for a day’s meal.
When many around us are suffering for a day’s meal how can we spend such a lot of money just buying crackers!
Let us think differently, with the money we spend on crackers, we can purchase different gifts like useful books, gadgets, utensils, or clothes and various other things which are useful for our children and for others who are very much needy.
If we have excess money to spend can’t we donate that to the different organizations that are doing worthy service to the needy people in our society?
That amount can be earmarked and donated to such societies. Or you can buy these items and donate it directly to such organizations, or societies. Or you can directly hand over this to such needy people. Let us think on these lines very seriously.
Diwali and Environment, Let us Cultivate A New Habit In Our Children
Let this Diwali, celebrate with our children by giving them something they can nurture and grow.
Burning crackers will only give some temporary enjoyment instead of that, why can’t we buy some anti-pollution plants like ferns or ivy which purifies the air.
By doing this, we can cultivate a habit in them to curtail air pollution.
This will surely be a good idea to educate our little ones to think in a different way about the environmental health of nature.In this festive season let us cultivate a habit in our children to curtail air pollution by planting saplings Click To Tweet
