Long and Short Speech on Diwali for Students in English
Speech – 1
Respected Principal Sir, Teachers and my dear brothers and sisters; During this festive season, we all will be in our minds on colorful items and new design clothes coming in the markets, but there is still some time in Diwali.
Today, I would like to say a few words to you guys, Nitya Roy, on this occasion. Actually I will present some data in front of you, from which many things will come out which we should know.
Diwali is the name of a famous festival celebrated in India, which is celebrated by the Hindu community in many other countries besides India such as Nepal, Malaysia, etc. We celebrate Diwali every year on the new moon of Kartik month. Which falls in the month of November according to the Gregorian calendar.
Winters also knock with Diwali and this is the best time to celebrate any festival. Everyone has this general information given about Diwali, but there are some aspects which remain untouched.
India has the largest youth population in the world and to form an opinion on any issue it is necessary that our youth remain united. As Diwali is the festival of lights, but for many decades before today, we have been increasing the beauty of this day with firecrackers. But now the time has come for all of us to stop and think on this matter.
Firecrackers not only cause air pollution but also noise pollution. We feel very good for some time but its long-term effects are very harmful.
On the one hand, the air of the country is getting polluted like this and on the other hand we pollute it even more in the name of festival. If the list of some top countries of the world is taken out whose air is most polluted, then the first five cities are from India. In such a situation, if we youths do not think about our country, then who will?
It is not necessary that every time someone else falls ill due to polluted air, you can also be a victim of it or someone else of yours. Just as the treatment of cancer in its first stage is not as much as possible in the last, in the same way we need to stop air pollution right now.
Apart from air pollution, noise pollution is also no small problem. Small children, animals, patients, etc. are greatly affected by this, so take a pledge that this time Diwali will be celebrated only by decorating the lamps and will not spread any kind of pollution and will not allow it to spread to others.
Apart from firecrackers, take one more promise that this year we will decorate our homes only with products made in India and “become vocal for the local”. Only we youth can make our country a better place and can play an important role in improving its economy.
Every year more than 19 million lights are imported into India from China, so you can understand how much Indian money goes easily to such other countries. Instead of taking products from others, give attention to the goods of your country and also contribute to the development of the country, because India will grow only then India will be better.
With these words, I want to end my speech, thank you.

Respected Principal, Vice-Principal, Teachers and my dear brothers and sisters, all of you are warmly greeted in this program.
I, Kalpana Srivastava – a student of class 12th, would like to give a speech on the festival of Diwali to all of you on today’s special occasion. As we all know that it is the festive season and our most favorite festival, Diwali, is quite near.
This is the reason why we are all so excited, but the most important thing is that how many of us take necessary steps to stop this and do something good in this matter. It is one thing to say so, but it is quite another to do something about it.
After this festival the environmental condition becomes very pathetic and it becomes very difficult for the people to breathe. Young children and old people are most affected by this problem. Due to which many types of problems arise in them, such as difficulty in breathing, eye problems etc.
However, despite being well acquainted with these things and knowing the increasing ill effects of firecrackers on the environment, many people buy them in huge quantities and burst them during Diwali. One of the most horrifying consequences of bursting crackers is the dreadful haze that spreads across the sky.
My dear students, my aim is not to stop you all from celebrating such an auspicious festival, but to make you understand how many destructive consequences are produced on our environment by these actions of ours. Being an educated person, it is our responsibility to be more aware of our responsibilities and try to make the people around us also aware of it.
Dear students, this is our environment and we are the inhabitants of this planet. So it is our biggest responsibility to fulfill our responsibility and try to protect this planet at all cost not only for our future generations but also to discharge our responsibility by protecting the natural resources of our mother earth.
It is not that if we do not burst firecrackers, our festival will end or it will become boring, there are many other ways by which we can make this festival more fun. Such as lighting a lamp, flying kites with a lamp, distributing sweets and if you want to burst crackers, then burst such firecrackers which are least harmful to the environment and use them in limited quantity.
If each one of us becomes a little aware about this issue, then we can very easily save our environment from more damage and can make a festival like Diwali more meaningful and good.
Thank you all for listening so patiently to my speech!

Respected Principal, Teacher Sir and Dear Friends, All of you are very welcome in this program.
As you all know that the festival of Diwali is very near and I am sure that you too will be very excited about this special festival. But I would like to warn you about the ill-effects of fireworks on Diwali.
The bursting of crackers is not only harmful to the environment but it is also very dangerous for humans because many types of toxic and deadly chemical elements are mixed in it such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide etc.
These poisonous gases cause many types of damage to our respiratory system and also reduce the oxygen elements in our body. Apart from this, they not only spread air pollution but also increase noise pollution.
Mostly children and the elderly are most affected by the loud noises caused by the bursting of firecrackers. The noise caused by these firecrackers is so dangerous that sometimes it can even cause permanent deafness.
Apart from this, people who have heart problems, chronic bronchitis and problems related to the immune system are at the highest risk of getting affected by air pollution.
Together we all have to try to save this mother like our earth and preserve its resources so that we can breathe in harmful gases and pollution free environment.
Many types of heavy iron particles and harmful gases are present in these pleasing to our eyes, out of which the most dangerous is considered to be carbon dioxide, this is the gas that causes the most damage to our environment and causes global warming. is also primarily responsible for
Instead of bursting these harmful firecrackers, we should light a lamp, clean our houses, help in making delicious sweets in our homes, make Rangoli to welcome Maa Lakshmi. It is believed that Diwali is the festival of victory of light over darkness, which is why we light diyas and remove darkness from our homes.
However, together we can take many steps for environmental protection. Firecrackers have been banned by the Government of India, yet people do not follow these rules and laws, so these rules should be strictly enforced. Many schools and organizations work to make students as well as people understand the importance of pollution free Diwali.
Such campaigns are encouraged by media channels and their heads, in which efforts are made to make people aware about the harmful consequences of firecrackers. For this, many programs are run on television and radio, in which people are made aware about the noise pollution caused by firecrackers.
Therefore, I would appeal to all of you to help our government and support the decision to ban crackers.
Thank you all!

Respected Principal, Vice Principal, Dear teachers and my dear classmates, all of you are warmly welcome in this speech competition.
The festival of Diwali is very near now and I Nikita Sharma, a student of class 12, will give a speech on the topic of Diwali in front of you all today. Diwali is also known as the festival of light and colours.
Diwali is one of the most important festivals for the followers of Hinduism as it signifies the victory of light over darkness. This is the reason why we light diyas in our homes on this festival.
We all must have seen in our homes that our mothers start cleaning the houses a week before Diwali, after all we have thought that why Diwali is so important in our life. It is believed that on the auspicious day of Diwali, Goddess Lakshmi visits the houses which are kept clean and bestows her blessings.
We all must have heard many anecdotal stories about Diwali from our grandparents. Many families believe that this festival is celebrated as the victory of good over evil, while many believe that it is celebrated in honor of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity,
and Lord Ganesha, the god of wisdom. According to the Hindu epic Ramayana, the people of Ayodhya lit ghee lamps in the joy of returning to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile of Lord Rama, Mother Sita and Lakshman ji and this marked the beginning of the festival of Diwali.
Similarly, according to the second Hindu epic Mahabharata, some people celebrated the festival of Diwali by lighting a lamp when the Pandavas returned to their kingdom after 12 years of exile and 1 year of exile.
Apart from this, it is also believed that the festival of Diwali started when Goddess Lakshmi was born after the churning of the ocean by the gods and demons. The festival of Diwali also marks the auspicious start of the New Year in some western and northern parts of India.
Along with this, it is also celebrated by the people of Sikhism to pay homage to many Gurus of Sikhism in the Golden Temple. Similarly, it is also considered by Jains as the day of attainment of knowledge of Mahavir Swami. That’s why we can say that because India is a very diverse country, there are different beliefs about Diwali in different religions.
Although Diwali is the festival of light, yet many of us do not hesitate to spread pollution to celebrate this day. Using firecrackers is not only dangerous. Using firecrackers is not only dangerous for asthma patients but it is also very dangerous for common people. It releases many types of toxic elements in the air such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide etc. Due to which finally the problem of pollution arises.
Therefore, we all have to take up this responsibility of not bursting crackers on Diwali and do the work of environmental protection for our coming generation. It is not that only humans are affected by many types of pollution produced by firecrackers, but it also harms many animals and birds equally and due to the pollution arising from firecrackers, the amount of oxygen in their body is very high. It decreases and the amount of carbon dioxide increases, sometimes due to its excessive amount, they also die.
So let us all together take a pledge to celebrate pollution free Diwali.
Thank you all for listening so patiently to this speech of mine!
