Will you say no to crackers?The countdown to Diwali has begun and as is customary, people burst crackers. Some say, it is auspicious to do so (achcha shagun, as they say in Delhi), but for many others, especially the younger lot, it is just the excitement and exhilaration.
Like every year, this year too there will be a new range of fireworks; some shops will clandestinely sell Chinese crackers. But, can you stop yourself from shelling out money on these crackers? Can you lend a hand in limiting the pollution? Can you say no to crackers? Will you do it – to save the environment and to maybe donate to a cause. Come on, do your bit, make the change, make it happen.
