    100% agreeing with you.
    If you notice, I was explaining another guy about same things that you're explaining me and that was as a funny argument for that.
    You don't need to worry.
    :p

    All this talk about environmentalism is well and good but know that this is just a one way street where Hindus are expected to cede more and more. You reckon these Jhollawallahs have the guts to tell Muslims to bring down loudspeakers, have bloodless eids, stop blocking streets every Friday, stop the hooliganism on streets during shaab-e-barat ? Not that Muslims would care what a bunch of self hating Hindus have to say anyway.

    In some towns of Uttar Pradesh, they even cover up idols during major festivals so that the minority community is not offended. Pooja & ringing of bells is stopped during Azaan.

    How much more are Hindus gonna compromise so that their faith becomes acceptable to these 'intellectuals' and doesn't offend minorities ? You already have Muslim preachers like Zakir Naik shoving this idea down our throats that idol worship & polytheism is now allowed in Vedas and hence Hindus must give it up. Many naive Hindus have imbibed it as well. Adopt Abrahamic constructs of 1 god, 1 book, no idol worship like Arya Samaj did or else you have no right to exist. Even much of the rationalist discourse in India is centered around criticizing Hinduism for the same reasons that Abrahamics criticize us for - polytheism, animism, ritualism, idol worship.

    One trend I've also seen amongst these kind of educated, urban Hindus is that 'Genteel' Vaishnavism like ISCKON & even neo-Buddhism is preferred but they turn their noses at Shaiva, Sakta or folk Hinduism, as if its something backward and dirty. Classic example of Nehruvian/British English education induced mental slavery among Indians. ISCKON is very popular among these people because it has fully transformed Gita in to a Bible style sales pitch selling Krishna. In their minds, anything resembling closer to Abrahamisms is consistent with rationalism, environmentalism, feminism and other neo-liberal ideas.

    Unrelated but just making a point about the double standards prevalent among our intellectuals.

    Pic1: Muslim women's choice of burqa in France is her power !

    Pic2: Hindu women's Karvachauth is regressive choice.

    bro, these pointing finger mentality is bad for our country, secondly as a christian, we have never cut down a single tree for x-mas celebration.

    for heaven sake can we get over religions and help our country get cleaner water and air ???

    For your info. I celebrated christmas for almost 10 years in my school and we use to cut trees for christmas.

    I am not pointing fingers I am against the preaching s of west and NGO's. Not against any religion that is sarcasm.

    How accurately can something like this be measured? Do not believe everything printed.

    This may just be me, but I think there is a sinister hand at work if sales were really that lower. It is fact that the West has polluted more than India and China combined historically.

    My fear is that conversion is really higher than people expected and because of this, new converts were being told to not celebrate.

    Why are you sensing conspiracy when there is none ?? Have you ever stayed in delhi or pune to experience the level of air pollution?? At times the traffic at yammuna expressway makes the air unbreathable.


    The logic in your post will not help us as a nation to prosper.

    I apologize for I have not. Despite that, air pollution contribution from one day of fireworks is minuscule compared to that of carbon polluters in cars and coal-based industry.This was only a theory.

    It is not green diwali.
    Crackers are becoming damn costly to afford.
    The poor cannot afford, most of the middle class population thinks it is a waste and only the rich burst crackers.
    Since the people coming under second and third category are less the amount of crackers burst are falling YoY.
    It is actually good because bursting crackers for Diwali is never a tradition. It was just inducted later.
