As soon as Diwali arrives, the conversation around whether there should be a ban on crackers or not starts. There are divided views. Team A inclines towards culture whereas team B inclines towards the environment. 

What if one can please both these sections? Well, 21Fools’ ‘Beej Patakha’ is the answer. With the current pandemic, pollution level and increase in the level of fog due to the weather, bursting cracker has been a dicey situation. Bursting firecrackers on the auspicious festival of Diwali has been a tradition for long now. It is done to light up the surroundings. 

This year, 21Fools devised a unique way to enjoy the tradition of firecrackers, without harming our surroundings. Instead, doing good to it by planting some helpful plants. 

'Beej-Patakha' - ????? ???? ??? ???????

“This festival of Diwali, Let’s celebrate new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness by sowing a seed in the soil instead of bursting fire-crackers.”
