Indians across the world celebrated the festival of lights — Diwali — like every year, with enthusiasm and happiness. People gorged on sweets, lighted lanterns and diyas and burst crackers. Yes, like every year, there was no question of not burning crackers on Diwali, in spite of the serious environmental concerns raised. So much so, pollution reportedly worsened after the festival, as expected.

Like any responsible citizen would be, actress Richa Chadha too was clearly aghast and took to Twitter to comment on how the ‘momentary lights’ have affected the environment.

While the actress posted it to highlight the hazards the harmful festive practice has been posing, many tweeple didn’t take kindly to being told off for bursting crackers, and thus began the trolling. People came up with absurd counter arguments. Much like Alok Nath being aut-placed as Bauji, some started calling the Gangs of Wasseypur-actress, “Auntyji” for spoiling the fun apparently. Another user decided to give Chadha a ‘piece of her mind’, while she posted how climate change was solely because of overpopulation, not because of bursting crackers, duh! Another guy told her what she could do to stop air and noise pollution:

  1. Stop sermonising
  2. Stop using AC at home and in cars

See what else is going Viral

What these Twitter users did not, however, realise was that the actress had a fitting reply to give them all, and she made sure she did. Just like us, Chadha obviously seemed amused at the counter arguments the users had come up with, and had just the perfect answers.

 

Though the actress replied to all in good humour, she managed to not lose focus from the concern she had raised in the first place — that of the repercussions of our Diwali celebrations.
