One Diwali night causes as much damage to the ecology as regular pollution does over the span of a year.
Firecrackers are second on the list of major causes of pollution. All kinds of pollutions are spread through firecrackers. Burning them may seem to be fun, but, one has no idea of how much they are damaging the environment around them. We, Prayas member donít celebrate Diwali with firecrackers. But instead we celebrate it with HIV kids. Decorate their hostels; organize fun and entertaining events for them. When you do a selfless good deed for someone and you see them smiling, that is the truest smile in the world. We spend a complete day with HIV kids, providing lunch/ dinner and our members do everything they can to make them special on the festival of lights. You can see the lights in their happy eyes."
