Go Green Diwali

November 10, 2023

This Diwali

Don’t just light up the sky,

But stop someone crying.

Don’t just eat sweets,

But share your love on the streets

Don’t just buy gold,

But help someone helpless.

Diwali is commonly referred to as “The Festival of Lights.” The Hindu brothers and sisters across India celebrate it with joy and enthusiasm. The occasion signifies the spiritual victory of good over evil and understanding over ignorance. It is also a time to eliminate all bad plans and thoughts, banish dark shadows, and revive our spirit to work together for the good of society.

To commemorate and celebrate an eco-friendly Diwali, the management of Nazareth School, Chandapura, prepared activities for the children, including diya decoration and lantern crafting. The students exhibited their artistic abilities by embellishing the school hall with handcrafted lanterns and illuminated diya.

During the assembly, the students emphasized the significance of utilizing natural colors in rangoli, conserving energy, producing handmade sweets, planting trees, and protecting the environment for future generations. This Diwali, they pledged to avoid crackers and plastic gift wrappers and make it a green Diwali.

The SCNs and the students celebrated this festival of light by being a ray of hope in the lives of the excluded members of society – thus being sunshine and expelling darkness.
