Teachers who accompanied the children conveyed the message that precaution should be taken during the festival of Diwali so that it can be celebrated safely.

Since the past one decade efforts have been continuously made to discourage the use of the firecrackers after several cases of burns and other accidents were reported during the festival.

"This is an awareness programme through which we are sending a message to parents and the people that how firecrackers emit pollution and the sound can cause harm to many," said Roshni Bajaj, teacher.

"We want people to see this rally and understand that burning of crackers are very harmful," she added.
