Festival of Diwali Clean-Creative

Diwali the largest and vibrant festival over in India and other countries. Almost all religions except Christians and Muslims don’t celebrate it. There are many religious myths associated with it. Mainly its considered as victory of light over dark depending on the perception of all people for some its victory of good over bad. It is enlightenment of knowledge(light) over ignorance(bad), freedom over slavery. Lighting of lights in a serial order in front of houses or business place.

The overall business turnover  for Diwali may exceed more then 5000 crores wroth of fire crackers. Its the starting of new business year because people buy gold jewelry, vehicles,sweets and many house hold articles. Many people gift sweets,dry fruits to friends,relatives and business associates. Its the common ritual followed now a days .

our concern is regarding the environmental issues. Due to global warming we have got many seasonal variations i.e., like no rainfall,no cold in winter but sunny as in summer and many more problems. Already our metropolitan cities are surrounded by smog of various chemicals which hinders our breathing and its capacity, many are prone to allergies and lung related problems.

Diwali festival is to promote victory of light over darkness by wearing new clothes,gold jewelry, strengthens relations in family and relatives. Especially people in business by sharing gifts and sweets.  Problem arises at burning of fire crackers. It may be followed as an old custom and its causing a major issue in sound, air pollution. Its an ancient ritual which is followed since many years.

Its a sensitive issue, so it can’t be stopped because in our secular country where there many religions. we shall take precaution i.e we shall buy plants with 10% of money spent on Diwali fire crackers. Much pollution is caused in 2 to 3 days . we have got many plants which are commonly grown but they purify air, if we can promote them. It will be a great help to our mother earth.

The plants are

1) the living room plant “Areca palm ” scientific name: chrysolidocarpus air filter or purifierlutescens

2) the bedroom plant “mother in law’s tongue” scientific name: sansevieria it does not disturb ustrifaciata

3) the specialist plant “money plant ” scientific name: epipremenam aureumit provides money not as cash immediately

the above plants decrease air pollution, co2 levels, other chemicals entering into our house and then into our body by breath. even also harmful fumes like formaldehyde and volatile gases.

Humans destroying earths natural renewable energy sources

Homosapien- we the Humans are the superior race on the earth. We feel that we are on the top in evolution chain. We have adapted all types of adverse condition, which destroys the harmony of the nature.

Ill Effects

bad effects of our life style
burning earth to ashes

our day to day activities have changed and biological clock(circadian rhythms) has been reversed by so called posh culture. due to this humans  face many adverse effects both on our  physical & mental health. In-spite of all this happening, there is no regret and we are trying to find another planet to trash it like our mother earth.

Already we have made it as a dumping yard with solid waste, electronic waste,hazardous waste. we have broken the rules of mother earth to prove that we are civilized people on this planet.

Evolved species habits

Unlike animals we have speech, cognition, emotions,then other species existing on this planet but they abide by the nature laws and not with greed. We say we are in harmony with nature and we don’t preach but animals hunt or prey on other animals. when they are hungry only and they do not  hunt for fun.

This type of attitude has brought us on the verge of last day of world. We are the destroyers of our own world by our cognition I.e., our intelligence, our thoughts, technology like using automobiles that run on fossil fuel,refrigerators which emits CFC’s(chloro fluro carbons). wastage of food, water and others resources.  which  will take us to an end.

Humans have tamed wild animals , we feel that we are civilized by cutting down forests, we cultivate them into fields. For foods, medicine and other uses. Initially the change was sustainable but now a days we are going against the nature by using substituents like artificial manure for better yield in less time. it has polluted land, our foods, water, air and even the mothers milk which is considered the purest form. fossil fuels for transport by ignoring renewable energy resources.
