The Supreme Court recently banned the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR during Diwali this year. The judgment, that divided public opinion, was pronounced to keep a check on the alarming level of pollution in the capital. Author Chetan Bhagat had objected to it, and was trolled for this. Designer Masaba Gupta, who had voiced her support for the firecracker ban was also not spared by people on social media. But it seems like they have finally united in their opinion of celebrating a pollution free Diwali and are urging others to do the same.

It started with Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA) asking people to celebrate Diwali in a different and an eco-friendly manner this year on their Twitter account. “There are more than one way to celebrate an eco-friendly #HatkeDiwali. How are you celebrating it this year?” And since then people on social media have been offering different ideas for it. From suggesting carpool to avoid traffic to entreating others to plant trees during this time, Twitterati is abuzz with opinions regarding #HatkeDiwali.  “Let’s keep out city green and healthy. Choose to celebrate a pollution-free #HatkeDiwali by avoiding bursting of crackers,” wrote one user while another wrote “Sweets are giving taste only consume but plants makes us healthy till our last this is an unexpected Diwali gift.”

And this is how people responded to it.

So how are you planning to celebrate the festival this year?
