Speech on Diwali for Teachers in English
Speech – 1
Respected Principal, Vice-Principal, my fellow teachers and dear students
Being the senior teacher of this school, I feel very happy to deliver this speech in front of you all today. We all celebrate this festival of Diwali with great joy and enthusiasm and also do a lot of preparations for it.
The festival of Diwali is considered very important for the Indian people, during which we clean our houses, decorate them, do shopping, in which people buy items like gifts, kitchen items, home appliances, cars, gold ornaments. Huh. There are many such ancient stories, which describe the origin of celebrating this festival.
On this day the women of every household make rangolis of different shapes on the ground. This festival of Diwali has a little different variation in each region. But due to the useless practice of bursting firecrackers in this festival of Diwali, the level of pollution is increasing all over the world. It is our duty as a responsible citizen of this country that we should celebrate this festival with love and gaiety and not in such a way that harms our environment and our health.
Even though crackers are lit, but due to their loud sound, they spread a huge amount of noise pollution as well as air pollution. Which makes us breathless, even though the government has banned the bursting of firecrackers, but still many people are not deterred from the act of bursting firecrackers. Despite the ban on firecrackers on Diwali, people are using them illegally. Which is very harmful for us as well as animals and birds and also causes serious damage to the environment.
Animals get scared and behave strangely due to the noise pollution generated on Diwali, along with the following harmful effects of air pollution and other pollutions produced by it:
- permanent or temporary deafness
- Deterioration of eyesight due to toxic gases produced in the atmosphere due to firecrackers.
- respiratory and asthma related problems
This list does not end here, due to the smoke generated due to bursting of crackers, a layer of white haze is formed in the environment. Due to which the visibility becomes very low, due to which many accidents start happening on the road. Young children and the elderly are most affected by firecrackers.
We all should support the government’s decision to ban firecrackers while discharging our responsibilities and you students should also make others aware of its harmful effects while not using firecrackers on Diwali. Therefore it is the responsibility of all of us that not only do we celebrate the festival of Diwali in such a way that it is also friendly for the environment, but also try to make others more and more aware about it.

Respected Principal, Vice-Principal, fellow teachers and dear students, all of you are warmly welcomed in this program.
Today I would like to give a speech which is very important in front of all of you Ahana Gupta, the class teacher of class 8th D. This festival of Diwali is very near and it is very important for us to know about the problems related to it. As a responsible citizen of this country, it is our duty to come forward with this problem and try to make people aware about it.
Have you students ever noticed why the government finally had to ban firecrackers? Its secret is hidden in the deadly pollution emitted by firecrackers, which is very dangerous for our environment, because most of these pollutions are very harmful and contain elements of copper, sulfur, and calcium etc., which include nitrous oxide gas and other chemicals. These are present such as reducing agent, coloring agent, stabilizer, oxidizer and binder etc.
Apart from this, various chemicals are also used to give color to these firecrackers, such as lithium for red color, aluminum for white. It is rightly said that everything that shines is not gold, in the same way, no matter how many beautiful sights the firecrackers present in front of our eyes with their brilliance. These crackers cause more harm to young children than adults because the ability of young children to take out environmental pollution elements is much less than adults. The following elements are mainly present in firecrackers, which can cause many diseases.
- Aluminum sulphide which is mainly used to produce color in firecrackers and is easily available in stores. When such elements are released when firecrackers explode, they can cause Alzheimer’s disease as well as cause death.
- Potassium and ammonium, which are considered oxidizing agents, can also cause problems like lung cancer.
- Apart from this, crackers also contain toxic substances like bariumnitrate, which can cause breathing problems, gas problems as well as muscle weakness due to their radioactivity.
- Thyroid problems can also arise due to firecrackers
- Apart from this, due to the presence of compounds of copper and lithium in firecrackers, an imbalance of hormones also arises in the body. Which has a very bad effect on all animals and animals.
Firecrackers have been banned by the Government of India, yet many people do not desist from selling and using them illegally. All of us together should provide our help in implementing this decision of the government properly. I hope that I have done the work of motivating all of you on this issue, so that you can understand the negative effects of firecrackers on the environment. But this is not enough, we need to try to bring more awareness among the people about this issue. If we want, we can take the help of things like billboards and seminars for this work and we can introduce ourselves as a proud and responsible student of this country.

Dear students hope you all are safe
I Namrata Srivastava, the class teacher of class 10 B, welcome all of you to the auditorium of this school. Today there is no special festival, for which you all have gathered here but to discuss an important topic, which is our favorite festival Diwali, now this festival is very near now, here is the reason why Everyone is looking so excited and this excitement is quite natural as we all be it big or small look forward to this festival throughout the year.
During this festival, not only do we get rid of our busy daily routine but we also get to meet our friends and relatives whom we have not been able to meet for a long time. The most special moment of this festival is the worship of Lakshmi-Ganesh ji, which is done for prosperity, wealth and to get their blessings. This is the reason why this festival of Diwali becomes so joyful and adorable.
I know that many of you students must know that this festival of Diwali falls in the month of Kartik according to the Hindu calendar. Which comes in the month of October or November. This festival is celebrated to celebrate the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after killing Ravana after a long exile of 14 years. It is one of the most popular festivals of our country and in many places it is celebrated five days in advance. This festival is a time for family members to meet each other. Apart from this, the most special thing about this festival is that in many places of India, it is also considered as the beginning of the new year. Now this festival has become so popular that its fame has reached even abroad.
Most people start cleaning and decorating their homes and shops a week before Diwali to welcome Goddess Lakshmi. During this, not only cleanliness is started everywhere, but shops and offices are also decorated with different types of flowers and toys and pictures. During the time of this festival, people not only wear new clothes but also meet each other and offer them sweets and gifts.
After worshiping in the evening, people leave the lights on for the night believing that Goddess Lakshmi will come to their homes and shops in the night and give her blessings. Therefore these places are kept lit and clean.
Due to these reasons of Diwali, we like this festival so much, but as a student you should also pay attention to the pollution caused by bursting of crackers. These crackers are very harmful for the environment and this is the time when we need to stop it by thinking seriously about its harmful effects on the environment. As a responsible citizen, it is our duty to be serious about the protection of the environment and celebrate the festival of Diwali in such a way that it does not have any negative impact on the environment.
I just had to say this to all of you, I hope these words of mine have impressed you, thank you all for giving your valuable time!

Respected Principal, Vice-Principal, teachers and my dear students, all of you are warmly welcome in this program.
I Mrs. Sarabjit Kaur, a Social Science teacher of class 10th welcome all of you to the prayer hall, I know you all are very excited about the festival of Diwali, because now the holidays are very near, so this curiosity is even more has increased.
I myself like this festival very much, from a few days before this festival, the places around us are decorated with lights and everything looks neat. Then we all meet our relatives and exchange gifts, which is very adorable for all of us.
On this day, we start preparing for the festival of Diwali from the morning itself and do things like lighting diyas and candles, decorating houses with flowers and rangolis, cleaning and painting the walls. This work is necessary because it is believed that on this day in clean and decorated houses, Goddess Lakshmi comes and bestows blessings. Along with this, we should also keep good thoughts in our heart and mind on this day so that we can get the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi. Apart from this, a holy ritual like Lakshmi Puja is also performed in the evening so that happiness and prosperity remain in our house.
Apart from this, another best aspect of this festival is the making of Rangoli which adds to the entire decoration of Diwali. Along with this, on the day of Diwali, people wear new clothes, distribute sweets, prepare delicious dishes and dishes and burst crackers. The fireworks on Diwali look very attractive when seen in the sky, but it also has its negative effects. So in view of this increasing pollution and environmental imbalance, we should abstain from bursting crackers and contribute our bit in protecting our environment.
Children, let me tell you that Diwali is a five-day festival, in which these days are:
- Dhanteras: It is the day of beginning of Diwali festival, on this day our mother and grandmother buy many essential items. Apart from this, gold and silver items are also bought by people on this day because people believe that buying these items on this day brings prosperity and happiness in the country.
- hell chaturdashi This day is also known as Choti Diwali and oil is also used in bathing on this day and after this, Maa Kali and Lord Krishna are worshiped by putting kumkum on the forehead because it is believed that On this day he killed a demon named Narakasura.
- Diwali:This is the main day of the festival of Diwali, it is the day when we worship Maa Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha.
- Govardhan Puja: On this day we worship Lord Krishna, on this day we have a tradition of preparing Govardhan from cow dung and worshiping him.
- Bhai Dooj: As its name suggests, this festival is of brother and sister. On this day sisters put kumkum and saffron tika on their brother’s forehead and in return their brothers present a special gift to them.
So students, let us all join together to welcome this festival of Diwali and make it eco-friendly and say no to the use of firecrackers.
Thank you all for listening so carefully to this speech of mine!
