Every cracker in the NCR had a message that echoed through the country !

How did the State administrations & Courts, eager in their almost evangelical zeal, conclude that a cracker ban on Diwali was the solution to our pollution problems?
Is it that they don’t understand the problem at all?

Or is that they have no idea how to handle it?

Or was it simply a case of taking for granted a compliant community because all else has failed?
What seems even more surprising, is that they actually believed people would quietly comply on this very important festival & the ban could be enforced with a ratio of 150 policemen to a 100,000 Indians.

मी अविवेकाची काजळी । फेडूनी विवेकदीप उजळीं ।
तैं योगियां पाहे दिवाळी । निरंतर ॥ ५४ ॥

Sant Jnaneshwar (संत ज्ञानेश्वर) in his epochal commentary on Bhagavad Gita, "Jnaneshwari" (completed in 1290 AD), articulates the most profound essence of Diwali. #Diwali2021

The verse means:

(Written from the perspective of lord Shri Krishna)

"As I erase the gloom of ignorance and apathy, the light of knowledge burns bright within the conscience. Such an enlightened mind experiences immanent diwali"

We at @BhandarkarI wish everyone here a very happy Diwali, and that the light of knowledge shall illume each mind bright and forever.

Happy Diwali everyone.
