Diwali is the festival of lights, not a festival of smoke and noise. Diye jalao, candles jalao, LED bulbs jalao aur mithai khao. Say no to #firecrackers

Air is secular. Let's not look at it through the lens of religion. There is no threat to a religion. There is a very serious one to air; which we breathe every alternate second. #firecrackers

The Supreme court said that bursting #Firecrackers is allowed only between 8 pm and 10 pm on religious festivals. But don't worry, after 10 pm you can always shout "Thain Thain"

Dear #firecrackers burners,
Please get a plastic bag and cover yourself with firecrackers whenever you are Burning It, so that you can enjoy the smoke 100% by yourself. Universe does not want any percent of it.
Excessive use of firecrackers and making it worse for living.

Instead of capping time for #Diwali festival #firecrackers SC & Govt should cap population, Restrict easy car loans & ban polluting vehicle, Utilize more natural energy like wind water & solar. Plant more trees to control #Pollution. That will be actual solution to the problem. pic.twitter.com/Ri2OxlUCNl

Diwali is the festival of lights, a time for joy. 'Light' does not translate to noise and pollution. As the most polluted country in the world, we should welcome the restrictions on #firecrackers instead of being butthurt over them. I, for one, would have appreciated a total ban.
