India will be celebrating Diwali in one days time and the city is all geared up for the festival of lights! Every street is dressed up in pretty lanterns and lights, every home is being cleaned and decorated with rangoli, diyas, lamps and candles.

Its a five-day long festival, each day being significant in its own terms which you will understand when you read all the info about this holy festival through the link above.

Am familiar with most of the Diwali customs out of which these three really make me feel good :-)

Rangoli is a traditional and holi ritual, a colorful art which the women decorate on their door steps, and the main purpose on Diwali is to welcome the goddess Lakshmi who is also called the goddess of wealth. She is worshiped with immense devotion, and she in return blesses her devotees with prosperity and wealth.

No festival is incomplete without sweets and traditional delicacies and Diwali too, which is usually celebrated with lighted skies, crackers, sparklers and other fireworks, cant be imagined without sweets, as there is a custom to exchange sweets to the friends and neighbors.

Rockets, christmas trees, sparklers, ground wheel known as charka, diyas and lighed streets etc etc.. they all add to the festivities and sure light up the skies along with excitement and thrill of children, and adults too!

Have a happy and safe Diwali with these do's and dont's tips..

The Do’s:

- Before bursting fire crackers, look for an open space and ensure there are no combustible and inflammatory things around. If so remove them at once

- Always buy fire works from licensed and reliable sellers

- Keep small children away from the bursting area

- Use a sparkler, agarbatti (incense stick) or a long fire wood to light a cracker as they keep you at a safe distance and do not possess a naked flame

- Read the label on the crackers and follow the instructions carefully

- While igniting aerial fire works like rockets ensure that they are not facing any opening like an open window, door or an open building which may cause fire accidents

- Keep fireworks stock away while lighting a particular firework

- Wear footwear while lighting fireworks

- Keep a bucket full of water handy

- Be prepared for emergency

- Organize a community display of fireworks rather than individuals handling crackers

- Keep first aid and buckets of water handy. In the event of fire, extinguish flame by pouring water from the buckets. Every major fire is small when it starts

- Light only one firework at a time, by one person. Others should watch from a safe distance

- In case of burns, pour large quantity of water on the affected area

- In case of major burns, after extinguishing the fire, remove all smouldering clothes. Wrap the victim in a clean bed sheet

- The patient should be taken to a burns specialist or a major hospital. Don’t panic

- In case of eye burns, wash the eye with tap water for 10 minutes and take the victim to a hospital

The Don’ts:

- Do not wear nylon clothes. Prefer cottons while bursting crackers

- Strictly avoid using matches and lighters for bursting crackers as they have open flames that can be dangerous

- Never ignite aerial fireworks (like rockets) if there is any overhead obstruction present like trees and wires

- Never ever leave a lit match, agarbatti (incense stick) or sparkler near unused crackers

- Never experiment with crackers or make your own fire works

- Avoid bursting fire works on roads

- Never ever light a cracker in your hand. See to it that you put it down and ignite it

- Don’t keep your face close to the cracker while trying to light it

- Do not throw fire works at people

- Never give any firework item to small children

- Never try to burst crackers indoors or from inside a vehicle

- Do not have fire works in your pocket while igniting another

- Do not tend to burst crackers when some one else is trying to ignite one

- When crackers take time or do not ignite immediately, do not indulge in trying to burst them. Rush to a safe place immediately. Throw some water to diffuse them

- Never try to light used fireworks

- Do not ignite fireworks in any container

- Do not approach immediately the misfired fireworks

- Do not tamper with misfired fireworks

- Do not wear loose, hanging clothes. Secure all clothes properly

- Do not apply any cream or ointment or oil on burnt area
