It doesn't come as a surprise for us to see how polluted the environment of India become, and especially of Delhi. This Diwali will surely bring some happiness in our lives but we don't realise what harm we are doing to the environment, the sick and the coming future generations by burning FireCrackers and possibly other harmful products available in the market. The statistical figures are horrific and if we don't take action soon, we might as well initiate an apocalypse.
Coated in explosive dust, children and mostly adolescents handle a potential disaster in homes and factories to manufacture FireCrackers. Loss of many lives.
Whistling red, yellow and green sparkles that brighten Diwali, also possibly conceal another dark, terrifying reality- Child Labour. These young lives are exposed to life threatening situations.
The Nation's child rights watchdog NCPCR noted how young lives around 90% of children employed in fire works were found to have contracted asthma, eye disease and TB. Many of them were found to be victims of psychological, physical and verbal abuse.
We urge not only the responsible authorities but also ourselves, the people, to put a ban on FireCrackers for a safe future and not be so selfish to realise what harm we are doing to those who aren't even part of this all.
