The festival of lights, Diwali is here again. Once again there will be happiness in the air and love in the sweets. This Hindu festival of great importance is celebrated to commemorate the victory and return of Lord Rama after his 14 year exile as per the Hindu mythology Ramayana.
This day is celebrated on the 13 day of Hindu month Ashwin. Usually a four day festival, it is a symbolic celebration of good winning over evil. By lighting oil lamps and lanterns we believe that humanity is spreading the light and eradicating darkness. People celebrate this festival with a lot of enthusiasm. New bright clothes, exchanging sweets, visiting relatives, bursting crackers and going on vacations are some of the franchised activities of this time.
At JTTJ we are thrilled and look forward for the Diwali celebrations. But with changing times and deteriorating environment, we urge you all to celebrate an eco-friendly Diwali. Although Diwali is synonymous with bursting cracker we urge you to not do so. Crackers not only create a lot of sound and air pollution it also creates to much garbage due to the residue paper. Its bursting sounds can turn out to be fatal for ill people, small children, heart patients and even animals. The poor animals fail to understand the source of noise and smoke, hence fear for their lives. Let us not cause trouble to other for the sake of our fun.
This year let us celebrate Diwali for its true meaning of spreading enlightenment and love to all. JTTJ wishes you all a happy Diwali and a love filled life.
