This festival is really beautiful. With the preparation of the festive food to decorating the house to bursting crackers. Its all exciting and fun. Lighting diyas and lanterns and putting up fairy lights is what I really love.
Crackers enhance the specialty of this festival. Again, beautiful to look at.
But, yes, there’s a ‘but’, the way it affects the environment is really painful to look at. I wouldn’t like it if the crackers were completely banned, although, I’d be fine with loud ones(specially the bombs) banned. I’m sure Lord Ram didn’t want to be welcomed with loud bangs which aren’t peaceful at all. But we really need to reduce the amount of crackers we burst. It becomes really suffocating after some time.
Else this festival is really beautiful.
