HAPPY DIWALI - say with flowers, NOT with crackers !
Diwali or Deepawali is the festival of Hindus and Sikhs in India. Its equivalent to X-Mas. People buy new things (household, new clothes, machines, vehicles, etc.) on the occasion and exchange gifts and sweets amongst friends and relatives. The markets start teeming with people, chaotic parking, traffic jams, etc. It seems people start over working for shopping and cleaning their houses.
Let us all take pledge on this occasion that we will brighten our future, at least, the future of the generations to come. Please say NO to crackers on the occasion towards cleaner environment.
