Nagaon students against fire crackers

Deepavali, one of the festival celebrated all over the country by Hindu people. Deepavali means different things to people of different states of the country, in keeping with the different legends associated with this festival of light and sound. Irrespective of the reason behind the celebration, the spirit of Deepavali comes alive through illuminating sparklers and loud crackers. The celebration of Deepavali starts after Laxmi Puja and the wholesale and retail sales of crackers starts 15 days before Deepavali. The sound of crackers and rows of candle lights decorate the festival. But now-a day it is usually noticed that people pay less interest in lights and its become their pleasure to burn costly crackers. The huge sound that emits from those crackers are really disturbing and it also cause air pollution too. The interest of crackers are usually found among the teenagers or youths. But when the youths will come out to check this pollution then we can say that 75% of this problem is tackled.


Today, the students of Nowgong college in Nagaon, a city of north eastern Indian state Assam took oath that they are not going to pollute the atmosphere with crackers. They all decided to light the earthen lamp to decorate the Deepavali festival. They also urge the people to come forward to support and to save the environment being polluted with the crackers. The students of Nowgong college gathered and at around 11.30 am in the morning they pledged that they will avoid using the crackers this Deepavali.

Good initiative.Nagoan college students had done good things for the society. I feel brusting crackers in dipawali is a waste of money and time and instead drain away ones pocket money and does harmful to human beings by polluting air.There is no logic in celebrating puja by brusting crackers.
