Diwali festival or Deepawali as its popularly called is the festival of lights. It’s a popular Hindu festival celebrated all throughout India and Indians across the globe with high spirits during the month of October- November tentatively. The festival signifies victory over darkness and evil and is mostly associated with celebrating the return of Lord Rama after killing Ravana and returning home after a vanvas of 14 years. The festive activities are observed from 5 days prior to the Diwali festival day with various poojas and rituals being carried out by people on each different day. Each day before Diwali has its own significance and on the day of Diwali festival people dress in new clothes and offer their prayers to Goddess Lakshmi to shower them with wealth and prosperity all throughout the year.
Lighting of diyas or oil lamps, bursting crackers, decorating the houses with lights and Rangoli are a major part of the diwali festival. All the houses are lit with lamps during the evening and a beautiful Rangoli drawn outside their homes. Lightning of lamps signifies the new hopes and brightness to be filled up in one’s house and creates a positive aura around the people of the house. People perform their special poojas and then come out and burn firecrackers of various types and styles. The sky is lit up with the sparkles of the crackers and the sounds of blasting bombs etc. The festive spirit has increased so much over the years that people now buy firecrackers in bulk and keep burning them over the whole week. This has given rise to the sound and air pollution in the cities and affect the human and animal life due to chemicals and sounds released while burning crackers.
