I am not against of Festivals, Ceremonies we have in our great Indian Culture. But I have a strong feeling against the money being burnt in terms of Crackers. Can anyone justify the environmental pollution and also the noise created out of our festive mood? Can we say YES to the accidents taking place on the day of Deepavali. Earthen lamps (Deepa) are to be lightened on the day as per the tradition. Many aged people have problem with the sounds of crackers. Do we bother about them? We never say NO to the joys, happiness and the celebration that gives pleasure to us as well as others. Recent flood in Orissa had crossed all the records of devastations and we all are pretty aware of the situation of people affected by Floods as well as by Communal violence. In this situation, when people are not getting food to eat, roof over head and a cloth to cover their body, the huge celebration and burning of money have to be rational.
