o  I want my Diwali free of the acrid smoke that I, and my family, are forced to breathe in every year, and the unexpected sounds of exploding firecrackers that raise heart rate and ruin sleep.

o  I pledge not to make this Diwali about lung disease and skin burns, but, about having a wonderful time with family, friends, and good food and happiness!
