Every Diwali, someone’s artistry glows on our clothes, someone’s pottery lightens up our home and someone becomes an important part of the celebration. Their contribution to our happiness is immense. As urged by PM Narendra Modi, in Mann Ki Baat, let’s bring a smile to those faces and spread the joy with people who are an integral part of our celebration.

दीपावली के दिन जब मैं अपनी कॉलोनी के फौजी दोस्तों को ड्यूटी पर देखा तो ,तो एक अजीब सी भावना जगी मन मे। बस कुछ लोग उन्हें शुभकामनाएं तो दे रहे थे ,पर उनके चेहरे की गंभीरता बहुत कुछ बयान कर रही थी । मैँ उस रात मिठाइयां लेकर उन्ही भाइयों के पास पहुचा । जो महसूस किया ,उसे शब्द देना मुश्किल है ,बस यही कह सकता हूँ सबसे अच्छी दीवाली रही । एक भाई ने कहा " साहब दिन के उजाले में तो कुछ लोग आए, बस फ़ोटो खिंचवाने या औपचारिकता निभाने , पर आप तो पूजा, दीवाली, परिवार छोड़कर इस वक़्त आये हैं,ये सबसे अच्छा लगा आज"

Yes I have brightened someone's Diwali by not using the crackers. That's my small contribution towards my nation and environment. Supreme court had ordered to bust crackers at specific time. I had at least tried to stop them. According to me, that is my contribution.

Diwali .the season of lights ,crackers ,and smiles.My diwali was lit up by my cute angel and it was thousand times sweeter than the sweets i munched so long.In my personal view this festival should be celebrated from the roots and tradition of our culture.This festival glorifies our pride and bring us a feeling of oneness and togetherness.From the manufacturers of earthen lamps to the creators of each small and precious gifts that we have received on this big day,we have lighted all their lives.

we should not waste our money towards purchasing crackers. that not only wasting our money it spoils our environment, Air pollution. we should buy some clothes and give to Sevalaya. this is the duty to God and our Nation.

In my personal view wasting all our hard work gained money we spent on bloody crackers from which today we are facing problems,we are enable to breathe properly, there are thousands of poor lying on footpaths if each family of India take this pledge that its there responsibility that if they saw a poor to feed them they can make there diwali also a HAPPY DIWALI,unless and untill nothing is going to change giving 1 rs is not making you poor but may be it will give them bread..........!

दीपावली का पर्व भारत की भूमि पर असत्य पर सत्य की विजय के रूप मे इस पर्व का सनातन धर्म काफी महत्व है रोशनी करके भारत भूमि का श्रृन्गार किया जाति है और भारत की आस्था मर्यादा पुर्षोत्तम भगवान श्री राम मे है आज भी हम सभी लोग रामराज्य की कल्पना करने मात्र से हम भारतवासी रोमाचिंत हो उठते है इस लिय दीपावली पर्व को राष्टी्य पर्व घोषित किया जाना चाहिए विनीत अवस्थी "जनसंघी"
