A noiseless diwali this season urges bollywood

By Shweta Thakur and Arpana New Delhi, Nov 7 (IANS) Moved by the child labour involved in making fire crackers, stars of the otherwise loud Hindi film industry are urging everyone to abandon fire crackers this Diwali and instead celebrate the festival with gifts and sweets. "I get really worried because Diwali is all about fire crackers, an intensively child labour driven industry. Whenever you buy and burn them please understand where they come from. Children make them and acquire lung diseases in return," John Abraham told IANS. "I am not saying all this to spoil your Diwali but to make you realise that this industry is not needed. Also, be cautious while bursting crackers, especially youngsters. Don't hurt animals. It's a festival of lights enjoy it responsibly," he said. The actor's girlfriend Bipasha Basu warned children against the hazards of crackers. "Children must be extra careful while burning crackers otherwise they will hurt themselves. It is a festival of lights so light diyas and candels, exchange gifts, offer sweets to all, wear beautiful clothes, spend time with your friends and family members, and enjoy yourself," she said. Doe-eyed Raima Sen , whose "Manorama Six Feet Under" tanked at the box-office, said one must shun crackers to curb the pollution caused by them. "Crackers create a lot of noise pollution, which we can easily do away with by discarding their usage. Exchange sweets and gifts to rejoice the festival instead of polluting the environment," she said. "Moreover, a lot of child labour is involved in making fire crackers. So from my side bursting crackers is a complete no-no!" she lamented. Writer-turned-director Anurag Kashyap, who received much flak for his recently released film " No Smoking ", believes the festival is all about seeking blessings from god and spending time with family members. "I hate crackers! Main phuljhari jalata hoon (I burn sparklers). It is a festival when one spends quality time with family members. My wife organises a pooja (prayer) and we all attend it. And then it is all about my daughter who is seven years old. She just enjoys it all." Oomph girl Jiah Khan, who was launched by director Ram Gopal Varma in " Nishabd " believes that festivals are the best time to meet up with friends and family members. "Diwali is a beautiful festival that symbolises life and celebrations. It is the best occasion for a get together. One can spend quality time with family members and meet friends, for whom we generally do not get time because of our busy schedules," she said.
