Celebrations focus on lights and lamps, particularly traditional dÄ«pa or deeya (earthen lamp, as illustrated). Fireworks are associated with the festival. Some cities has banned fireworks. This petition is for those city administration to reconsider their ban on fireworks during the Deepavali celebration and allow Hindu community to enjoy their festival.
