Diwali 2009 has been unique. I told Kavya last week that the crackers make a lot of noise so much so that the birds get scared. After that also told her that to make the crackers they use children and the children are separated from their parents. Asked her if she would like to be separated from Mumma Papa and obviously she said No. Then asked her if she would like to burst crackers and she retorted back with a No. She did not ask for them even once and I am so proud of her. So we have contributed to saving the environment and hope to continue with this trend year on year.
