There can be multiple reasons why we must celebrate diwali. But, in my point of view it is another opportunity for us (family, relatives and friends) to get together. I would like to make a strait forward point that bursting crackers is not the healthy way to celebrate diwali. There are sevaral healthy ways to celebrate diwali.
Crackers are harming us in sevaral ways. The ill effects of crackers can be listed as follows:
- Air Pollution
- Noise Pollution
- Global Warming
If we avoid crackers and start the habbit of giving the money, sweet and new dress to the needy, it will be one of the memorable moment.
Who Makes Money While Celebrating Diwali with Cracker?
It is the company owners who makes money. Are these company owners are really poor? Anyway the poor employees are paid with their salary.
Everyone makes the diwali moment to work for them. They grow their business in every possible way. I really wonder what does Coca Cola has to do with diwali. Why llyod tv advertises uses cricket stars to express diwali wishes. Ofcourse they are making money. But, what is our contribution towards the betterent of our people and country.
As it is stated by Rajinikanth in Sivaji film, the richer and are getting richer and the poor are getting poor. Do you belive that our action can contribute to the betterment of some section of socity. How about creating an impact on someone elses life by buying things, contributing and wishing them.
Do you believe each and every decision you make gives an opportunity for someone else to make money? To whom you are giving that opportunity to?
If you decide to eat outside, the hotel owner makes money. But the question is to whom we are giving the opportunity to become better. A person who is already wealthy or to someone who is looking forward to make some extra money to offer a new dress for his kid? So why not we change our buying habbits for the betterment of others in need.
If you decide to buy sweets, you can either buy it from any branded retail outlets or get it from your known person. If you give your sweet order to someone from your family member or friends circle who is in the related profession, they will get an opportunity to make some money and lead a better day. It is just a decision away.
The opportunity is in our hands. Let us decide whom to help.
You might have studied this thirukkural in our school days. It talks about, using kind words as a choice instead of harsh words. The kural goes like this:
Iniya Ulavaaga Innaatha Kooral
Kani Iruppa Kai Kavarthattru.
The tamil version is:
இனிய உளவாக இன்னாத கூறல்So, I would like to relate this one to our diwali celebration. When thera is a healthy way of celebrating diwali, why should we choose the unhealthy action.
