In their sincere effort to do their bit for the menace of pollution in Delhi, the Gurudwara Committee has decided to refrain from using firecrackers to celebrate Gurupurab this year.
This decision was made by DSGMC and will be informed to 700 Singh Sabhas for conveying to all the Delhi Gurudwaras. This festival was celebrated just like Diwali but due to the worsening condition of air quality this tradition of burning crackers will be put aside as it does not have any religious significance as such.
This is a very commendable act by the committee and should be taken as an inspiration for other people to follow. “The idea is to spread awareness about the need to focus on environment-friendly ways to celebrate a festival,” DSGMC president Manjeet Singh GK told Indiatimes.com.
These responsible citizens also intent to organize marches with school children to make people understand the problem at hand and find out ways to solve it. DSGMC will also be giving breathing masks in two main gurudwaras namely Delhi Bangla Saheb and Sisganj to the visitors.
We all need to take a cue and start doing our bit. Remember every act counts.
