Tihar, the festival of lights, is here. Be it the warm and pleasant weather, the flowers or the majesty of lights, Tihar indeed holds a special place in our hearts. As we celebrate this beloved festival, we mustn’t forget about the environment and the importance of sustainable living as, even while we celebrate, several aspects of our ecosystem are on the verge of a collapse and we must do all that is in our power to preserve it so that we can continue to celebrate Tihar and other festivals in the future as well.
