This diwali....








This
Diwali
This time
Let us not
Burn down money and lives
By bursting crackers when people burn to death
Let us show some humanity
For they are
God’s children
Too
Just
Like
Me
And you
So let’s strive
To bring about a change
Light candles of hope and lanterns of joy
Let there be goodwill’s reign
On this diwali
Let there
Be
Light!!!

Please don't burst crackers this diwali!!.... This post is dedicated to all those millions of children working in factories at Sivakasi who lose their lives in fire accidents and due to poisoning.... To all those people who die of pollution and noise every year.... To all those who are starving on the streets today... LET THERE BE LIGHT FOR THEM!!!

  1. Its been seven years since I actually started following this principle...'SAY NO TO CRACKERS'. I would continue to follow the same. :)

    LET THERE BE LIGHT! :)

  2. do you really have to ignite firecrackers to celebrate this festival?

    sounds like new year's celebration?
