As Diwali is around the corner, many of us are busy decorating our houses with lights, buying dozens of gifts for friends and family, and shopping for beautiful dresses.
But, some of us may be engaging in more than gifts, dresses, and decoration – may be shopping for crackers.
As the spirit of Diwali is all about love and care for others, here are 7 reasons how crackers spoil the spirit of Diwali and why giving up crackers would be a good idea.
#1: Makes It Difficult For Special Needs Kids
Loud noises and flashy lights could trigger extreme responses in special needs kids. Your fun could be very difficult not only for special needs kids but also for their families as they see them suffer.
#2: Not Easy On Animals
The animals, especially dogs, are scared of loud noises. It can trigger their nervous system because of which they become anxious and run away from the noises.
#3: Choke People Suffering From Asthma
Due to the burning of crackers, the amount of smoke in the atmosphere increases. This causes problems for many asthma patients, as they are unable to breathe properly.
#4: Increase In Air Pollution
We have industries polluting our air, and the smoke released from the crackers adds to air pollution. The ugly part of breathing in polluted air is the damage to the lungs and increased rate of heart problems and cancer.
#5: Short circuits
As the crackers burst with a lot of sparks, sometimes it catches fire and can also result in a short circuit. A short circuit can be very dangerous as it can result in fire.
#6: Harmful for newborn babies
The noise and the smoke released by bursting crackers are very harmful to newborn babies. The crackers not only scare them but the harmful gases also lead to various respiratory problems.
#7: Creates noise pollution
Crackers create a lot of noise pollution which is not good for humans as well as for animals. Sometimes loud noise can result in the bursting of eardrum aswell.
Diwali is much more than bursting crackers, it is a festival of togetherness, happiness, health and wealth. So, why not enjoy this festival with delicious sweets, amazing gifts and with our family.
We hope you would join us in spreading the real spirit of Diwali i.e. love and care for fellow humans.
Wishing you all a VERY HAPPY DIWALI in advance!!!!
