Even this challenging situation would ease
Dear Daljeet Ji, the festivals are created by our elders as a forseen that we (present days)wont have time to spare with our children, family and relatives. To make ourselves leisure with our family,friends and relatives only the festivals,celebration of village meet as kuladevatha pooja / temple car festivals etc., are made. We unnecessarily spending money on viewing cinema,cricket etc., as unnoticed but if it is for our festivals means thinking twice why?
Festivals are way of life. If we earn and increase the bank balance and leave the world without enjoyment, should we call it as life. What is the purpose of our life. Live joyfully as best as you can. It is the destiny that some one is rich and some are poor. But the festivals bring joy to both the rich and poor. They celebrate according to their capacity and enjoy. The rich spends lavishly, while the poor controls it with a look at his pocket. The ultimate goal of any festival is to bring cheer and happiness in the life, one day, while you work and suffer the rest of the days.
I agree that over spending of money on bursting of crackers is a criminal waste. It should be limited and the poor can be helped with food clothes etc
No life without Sun
Your points are correct to waste money during our festivals. The festivals like Diwali comes once in a year which is symbol of lights and sweets in Indian traditional cultural event.
In such festivals family members assemble together even from distance places to enjoy the great festival.
But the extensive use of fire works and crackers pollute this festival along with chances of accidents and life hazards especially to the children at home or in the streets.
Instead of that we can decorate our home with many colorful lights which are available in the market.
In view of the above I do agree with your view that uses of fire works and crackers are mere wastage of hard earned money throgh out the year. Instead excess money can be used for the better causes of the society.
(1)American are known for there wealth in the same way we are famous for our tradition and culture.after leaving tradition & culture if I have the chance to become rich then I would love to stay poor for whole of my life.
(2)We can not able to help someone If that person is not able to help himself.So leave the idea of to see the happy faces after sharing little wealth it is only possible if we share the knowledge and give the chance to understand why they are poor.
(3)If we have to save our environment then we should increase the number of forest and animal.there is already lot of restriction regarding noise limit for everywhere no need to worry for that.
At least but not last we have only one thing in our hand on which we can proud is our culture and tradition so for the purpose of saving little wealth we should not start thinking to leave our proud.
I really appreciate your question. In India even people who don't have
money to buy a good dress for them celebrate festivals like Diwali and Holi spending all of their money. But, in return, we provide nature a lot of water, noise and air pollution only. Just for our greeds we pollute the nature. Also if we spend that much of money in buying good knowledgeable book or gathering materials that suits our hobbies are much better than wasting money in festivals.

There is not substitute for hard work and no shortcut to success.
Just think of a situation where we are not having any platform to share our thoughts. These sharing give birth to several new ideas which come out in different forms. When there are no work, people find out some means to spend their time in a happy manner. Various art forms developed as part of it. Festivals also got established in the society.
Various societies had developed their own beliefs and these beliefs added with art forms developed took the form of routine festivals. Then thoughts went to make the festival more attractive. Fireworks and other decorations became a must for these festivals.
Moreover, several people got employed in the preparation of these activities. Automatically these became their professions. Hence now the festivals needed not only as an entertainment, but also as an economic activity.Sales in shops will generally more at the time of festivals.
