DIWALI OF DIYAS AT BALAJI GARDENS TO CONTROL AIR AND NOISE POLLUTION

balaji-garden-diwali-4The very name of this festival ‘Deepavali’ suggests the meaning of this festival. It is all about the light coming out of a tiny diya that is called ‘Deep’ in Hindi. Diwali falls on the day of ‘Amavasyaa’ when the moon does not rise and there is darkness all around. Light, being symbol of hope and positive things, indicates the victory of good over evil. And by spreading light in every corner of our premises we try to destroy the reign of darkness on the night of diwali. It is a tradition to light homes on diwali. After all the ultimate beauty created by lighting all over is the main feature that makes this festival unique. The residents of Balaji Gardens at Koperkhairane add to this uniqueness of the Diwali. For what can be called a tradition for three years now, residents of the society light 4000 diyas on Diwali. Residents say that the aim of doing this every year is to spread the message of love, which is signified by the flame of the diyas that drives away darkness and brings light and happiness. Another reason for celebrating Diwali with diyas is to play less with firecrackers and check air and noise pollution on the festival. This society is also home of Guardian and Environment Minister Ganesh Naik and is setting all the right examples for city residents to not violate air and noise pollution norms while celebrating Diwali.
