Tradition is also taken care of with environment
Eco-friendly diyas are being made from cow dung in Rajasthan capital Jaipur. More than 100 women are engaged in this work. Their effort is to make maximum diyas before Deepawali festival so that lights can be spread in the eco-friendly way in Jaipur homes. About 100 women are engaged in making these lamps made from cow dung. Which is making about 1000 diyas in a day. In this way, about 1 lakh diyas are being manufactured every day.
Economy is also concerned with environment
A woman engaged in making lamps said that we are not only attached to our tradition, but are also benefiting the economy of the country, as well as protecting the environment from harm. The woman said that cow dung is considered sacred in our tradition. And in some time, it is automatically destroyed, which also does not harm the environment. At the same time, the environment also damages with Chinese lamps.
11 crore families will burn 33 crore diyas made of cow dung
The National Kamdhenu Commission has started a campaign to celebrate 'Kamadhenu Deepavali Campaign' on the occasion of Deepawali this year. Through this campaign, the Commission is promoting the use of cow dung and Panchagavya products during the Diwali Festival. Construction of cow dung lamps, candles, incense, incense sticks, auspicious benefits, swastikas, souvenirs, hardboards, wall-pieces, paper-weight, incense burner, idols of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi have already started.
About 3 lakh lamps will be ignited in Ayodhya itself and 1 lakh lamps will be burnt in Varanasi. In addition to generating business opportunities to thousands of cow based entrepreneurs, the use of cow dung products will also provide a clean and healthy environment. It will also help in making the cowsheds self-sufficient. This campaign will promote the vision and campaign of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Make in India. This will help prevent damage to the environment.
