🚩 #Thread 1. Don’t be apologetic about #Deepavali  Be proud of #SanatanDharma @imVkohli
In Bengaluru alone 4lakh animals are killed on Eid which incl 10,000 large animals -cattle & camels generating 300 tons of animal waste which is buried in pits near Kogilu on cityoutskirts🚩
2. For 14 lakh Peacefullls in Bengaluru - 4 lakh animals are killed.
Even if 1 animal weighs 10 kg then can an average person eat 3 kg meat on single day ?
And mind you this includes kids& infants also. So most of the meat goes waste..🚩
3. If you conflate this number to whole of India-then imagine the number of animals killed on that single day ?
For 200 millon it must be at least 20 millon animals
& 200 millon kgs of meat & staggering 8 billon kgs of Green House gases & Carbon dioxide 🚩

Happy Narak Chaturdashi to all of you. The eldest member of family lights a Diya facing South Direction when all family members are inside, shows it too all corners of house and then keeps it at unknown place. With this Diya, all evil vibes too go out. #NarakChaturdashi

#NarakChaturdashi remains one of the fewest occasions when one can pray facing South Direction. The direction of Yama, the Lord of Death and Dharma is South. Prayers are made to Yama for long life of self, near and dear ones and to avoid untimely death.
On #NarakaChaturdashi, Bhagwan Krishna and Devi Satyabhama, his wife, slew Narakasur and freed 16,100 girls captured by him. Many Deepaks are lit on Kali Chaudas (14th night on dark phase, another name of Narak Chaturdashi) to pay respect to these girls. #NarakaChaturdashi2020
