The video shows Padma priya suggesting her followers to celebrate “Green Diwali” instead of bursting crackers. “If you invite me to celebrate Diwali with you, you should celebrate “Green Diwali”. Do you know what we are investing for the crackers that gives us happiness for few seconds ? Our own life. 10-15 % of people are suffering with lungs diseases such as Aasthma, irritation, cancer etc due to the crackers. Not only us, even we are affecting birds through bursting crackers for Diwali” Tamizh selvi said in her video and appreciated a village named Koonthangulam that is located near Thirunelveli for not celebrating “Diwali” for the past 30 years.

“Why we who feel for elephants that are dying due to traps, forgot to pity for animals such as dogs, cows and other animals which would get injured due to the crackers. We can celebrate Green Diwali if we think it is possible. If you are living in Chennai and have space in your area or house, no problem. We will be receiving plant samples from Ex No Ra, we youngsters are going to volunteer to plant the trees” she says in the video.
