Diwali Celebrations at Jan Seva
Diwali, or Deepawali gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness.
Regardless of how it is observed, Diwali celebrates joy, happiness, and brotherhood. The lighting of oil lamps, candles, colourful rangolis and decorative lights adorns houses, streets, and public spaces, creating a mesmerizing and joyous atmosphere
In recent years, there has been growing awareness about the environmental impact of Diwali celebrations, especially due to the use of firecrackers. Many communities are now encouraging the use of noiseless and pollution-free fireworks or opting for completely green celebrations to protect the environment.
In tune with this, the staff and children of Udaan and ECCEC jointly celebrated Diwali this year by taking part in making of rangolis with flowers as well as coloured sand, lighting diyas and bursting fire crackers. Sweets and chocolates too were distributed among the children. Overall, it was a fun filled celebration ending on a joyous note with everyone wishing each other a very HAPPY DIWAL I!!
