How silent Diwali was celebrated in the Indian State of Tamil Nadu

A roaring success for wildlife and sanity

Diwali, the festival of lights, is like that one cousin who always brings a sparkle to family gatherings.

But, hold on a second, who were those geniuses that thought celebrating this luminous festival required turning the night into a war zone with crackers? I mean, really? Are we trying to scare away demons or just giving the good spirits an excuse to take a vacation?

Legend has it that crackers are meant to keep dark energies at bay. But here’s a wild thought, what if the angels are packing their bags too? After all, who wants to stick around with all that noise pollution? And let’s not forget the generous gift of air pollution that comes with the God of death, claiming the souls of innocent animals and birds faster than you can say "Happy Diwali."

Now, don’t get me wrong—I’m all for celebrating Diwali. What irks me is the trauma our fur babies endure amid the chaos of exploding fireworks.

Cats and dogs shivering in fear, questioning their life choices because we decided to light up the sky like it’s the grand finale of a rock concert.

And oh, my dear migratory birds, we've got a special surprise for you! We never paused to think about the kind of welcome we're extending to our feathered friends.

Turns out, those bright lights might be blinding them more than a solar eclipse. Good job, humanity!

But don’t worry, there’s a beacon of sanity in the madness of Diwali, and it’s happening in the heart of Tamil Nadu. Imagine celebrating the festival with all the sparkles and glamour but without the ear-shattering explosions.

Seven villages across the state came together, making a pact to light up the night with joy, not chaos.

Tamil Nadu’s approach to Diwali this year is like a breath of fresh air—literally, considering there are no toxic fumes choking the atmosphere. It’s a celebration that deserves a standing ovation.

By embracing the true essence of Diwali, these villages not only kept negativity at bay but also protected our winged friends from unnecessary stress.

So, let's take a moment to applaud Tamil Nadu for showing us that Diwali can be dazzling without leaving a trail of destruction. It's time for the rest of the world to take note—because, let's be honest, no one wants a Diwali where the only thing migrating is common sense.
