‘JAAGO’ - Wake up for celebrating ‘Diwali’ in an eco-friendly and drug free way

November 18, 2019

Jaago is a dedicated month long campaign organized every year to reiterate the very message of celebrating Deepawali in an environment friendly and drug free way.

'Deepawali', the luminous festival is not only extensively celebrated across India but also this festival is upheld globally by Indians. Certainly, because of its association of victory of good over evil, the festival is also known as the "Festival of Lights".  'Deepawali' is celebrated for four consecutive days every year in the season of autumn. 

But down the line, due to the anomalies which have evidently sprouted out of misconstrued and distorted knowledge about this pious festival, the manner of celebration has disgracefully stooped down to consuming alcohol, playing cards, spending rocket amount on bursting crackers, exchanging gifts, and grabbing best Diwali online deals.

Therefore, as a responsible part of society, it is immensely important to undercut and eliminate the jaundiced view of the festival in its true sensibility along with the sensitization of its spiritual and social relevance. To achieve the same, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, founded/mentored by His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj ji under its joint efforts of both Bodh, the drug abuse eradication program and Sanrakshan, the nature conservation program premeditated and designed unique activities to productively inculcate awareness amongst masses over the concept of ‘light’ at the first place, depicting an exclusive journey from ignorance to enlightenment within.

Along with it, the organization has also played its strenuous foot forward in nullifying the anomalies associated with the festival to its lowest degree. Through activities and events including rangoli making thousands of people were involved in painting “healthy earth with drug free lungs”.

Various programs propagating the same are being organized at different states of India and are witnessing humongous support and many actively participatory gatherings in terms of engagement and delegation. With the help of demonstrations and table activities, various other day to day issues regarding the subject are also being highlighted upon and people from all walks of life have appreciated the dedicated endeavours of the organization.  Here the the photo Collages of the various events held under the campaign.
