Recommended Posts

Say no to Crackers
Join and invite all your friends.

Deep (light) avali (rows), a row of lights that taught us to vanquish ignorance that subdues humanity and to drive away darkness that engulfs the light of knowledge.

But Diwali today means……..

More ‘air, noise, light, land & social’ pollution due to use of lots of firecrackers. More patients for hospitals after the festival
Really bad news if there’s no wind and rain to lessen the effects of the smoke
Highly polluting nature of these firecrackers lead to a plethora of diseases………

Pollutants Can lead to...

Suspended Particulate Matter
Asthma, cancer, restrictive lung diseases, pneumoconiosisRespirable Particulate Matter
Respiratory illness (chronic bronchitis and asthma), heart diseases

Sulpher Dioxide (SO2)
Eye burning, headache, respiratory problems like pulmonary emphysema, cancer, heart diseases

Nitrous Oxides
Lung irritation, chest tightness, viral infection, airway resistance

During this festival (3 to 5 days), It has become a custom to enjoy Dipavali through lighting lamps, exchanging Sweets & "BURSTING FIRE CRACKERS".

First two are better way to enjoy, but what about the third one??
Are you aware what is the impact of bursting Fire crackers on the environment??

It affects environment in the following ways:

  • 1. Air Pollution affecting health especially to diseased persons, aged people, children & pregnant women.
  • 2. Water & land pollution will pollute our resources rivers, lakes…
  • 3. It takes several weeks to bring back normal air quality.
  • 4. Fire hazards causing heavy damages to life and property.
  • 5. Social nuisance leading to community disharmony.
  • 5 Sound pollution causes:

 

  • · Palpitation of heart
  • · Spasms of the digestive system
  • · Dilation of the pupils of eyes
  • · Emotional disturbances
  • · Continuous exposure to loud noise may lead to permanent deafness


Crackers like "atombomb" and "Lakshmi Pataki" contain highly toxic heavy metals like cadmium, lead, copper, manganese and zinc
Others have arsenic, mercury, chromium and iron oxides which lead to severe pollution after they are burnt
95 per cent of the crackers available in the market violate noise and air pollution norms

Crackers like flowerpots, 'zamin chakras' and other fancy fireworks may not add to sound pollution but they make up for it by doing extra effort on the air pollution part

Crackers are just a waste of time and money. I don't think just by using crackers we can say that we are celebrating Diwali. In Sivakasi, many young children die coz of blasts while preparing crackers. Let us all put an end to this stupid practice of burning crackers and have a crackerless diwali forever.

Diwali means,festival of Lights ( Deep + Awali ie. Rows of beautiful Lights). Burning and Blasting Crackers means waste of money as well as Polluting our mother earth.

Its a good effort to stop usage of explosives and save earth from air as well as noise pollution.

Let us celebrate Diwaly in right spirit ie Crackerless Diwali. Happy Crackerless Diwali...

yeah! i do feel that its high time now that we we very careful about our sorrounding & protect it basically. Diwali it self means festival of lights, array or deep/lights..not sounds & crackers. I thinkwe must say no to crackers. It not only causes noise pollution, but air pollution aswell & everyone knows that. When each one of us hav the knowledge about the harmful effects why do we still behave this way......by burning nthose crackers we are not only polluting the environment but also burning our own pockets for nothing....Light glows shows way..carckers burst..takes life away

CELEBRATE CRACKERLESS DIWALI.....

CHEERS......
