The colour of time has changed , so would it seem to Diwali revelers. Diwali has arrived with all its glitters. We help you out with some of the greetings and SMSs that you may like to send to your friends and families.
Road in the first half of the Diwali day in Delhi wore a deserted look. People are resting up either in beds or within the confines of their house in order to prepare for the arriving Diwali which foes full blast in the evening.
The second half of the day is bound to be hectic as last-minute shopping would be done in preparation for the evening. Also, the task of greeting friends and families is to be completed so that one remains house-bound in the evening.
The news of blind celebrating diwali is coming from various quarters of the country.
Amid increasing concerns over noise and air pollution, this year, the demand for crackers and fireworks have decreased by 32 per cent, according to a report.
"Celebrations this year may be cleaner, greener and noise-free as the year-on-year (y-o-y) searches for fireworks and firecrackers saw the biggest decline at 32 per cent," a a report by e-commerce platform for small businesses, Alibaba.com.
The report was collated from analytics data of the website from October 2011 through 2012.
Stating that Indian consumers are becoming more conscious environmentally, Alibaba.com India Country Manager Khalid Isar told "Having witnessed global searches and enquiries, we believe that this is a mirror of global trends. As environmental concerns grow, Indians too seem to be taking steps in the right direction."
On other reasons behind the decline in demand of firecrackers, he said, "There have always been concerns over safety. Further, with the global economic slowdown, it is a possibility that consumers may be reluctant to spend extravagantly on firecrackers".
Over the last couple of years, there has been a gradual shift for eco-friendly celebrations. Right from using recyclable, biodegradable materials to create Ganesh statues or using eco-friendly colours during Holi, Indians have been increasingly looking at environmentally friendly ways to celebrate.
According to some market reports there has been an increased influx of eco-friendly crackers this Diwali.
Indian manufacturers also supply locally with the country being the second biggest buyer market with 17 per cent, followed by the UK at 8 per cent of inquiries. Other buyer markets of Indian Diwali related products include Australia, Canada and France.
Meanwhile , two illegal cracker making units was unearthed, explosives found in Balrampur (UP) by a team of district administration and police and 560 kg of explosive material was recovered from them.
