Rupali Ganguly aka Anupama has been making headlines with her amazing performance in the show. And on the occasion of Diwali which is the festival of lights and fireworks, the actress has a whole different take on burning firecrackers.
Rupali Ganguly reveals that though she loves the festival she’s not fond of crackers, the Anupamaa actress says, “Every year on Diwali I request people to let this festival be all about lights and not crackers. Please light up your homes and your hearts. After Laxmi Puja if at all you need to burst crackers, then light up a ‘phuljhari’ or a ‘chakri’, but please don’t create any noise pollution. I am not a cracker fan and don’t understand why people single out only Diwali while banning them.”
Rupali Ganguly further added, “So many birds get heart attacks because of the sound, and I remember my father’s heart rate would shoot up during this festival. It affects old people and even pets and birds. Old and sick people and animals bear the brunt of it. Also, people spend so much money on it and all the money literally goes up in smoke. So why do that? I would just request everyone to have a noise-free, safe and happy Diwali,”.
She concluded, “For me, it’s very important to impart culture and family values to my son. He needs to know that there is a ritual of doing puja at home, there has to be faith, there needs to be love for the family, a value for Indian culture and traditions, and a proud feeling of being an Indian,” Rupali Ganguly concluded.
