The festival of lights brings with itself the ultimate delight of triumph of lord Rama over Ravana, implicitly imparting the moral value of good over evil to the society. And the celebrations are extended across the nation, creating a homogenous environment of good will and happiness.

The occasion of victory is celebrated in a bifurcated manner, 20 days prior to Diwali we have Dusshera which embarks the end of Ravana and is celebrated by burning his humongous effigies across country. So, the preparations begin around the following weeks of Dusshera with all lightings around the houses and people plunging themselves into shopping, all thanks to the festive season sales. Over the years, the celebrations have gone extravagant and taken a toll over not only the environment but also weakened the finances of many shoppers. With bumper discounts thrown in on every possible product in the market, the common consumer falls to the temptation of many times unnecessary buying and spending.

There is also an increasing concern over environmental pollution and the safety issues involved in making and bursting fire crackers. On the day of Diwali and the following days, the particulate matter in the atmosphere is at its pinnacle that can attribute to serious health issues.
