By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 6 - Volunteers from Cotton University today organised a campaign requesting people to avoid noisy firecrackers this Diwali for the sake of animals. The enthusiastic students went from door to door spreading the message to the people. They even gifted to them earthen lamps on which the message � �Please avoid crackers� � was inscribed. They also displayed placards during the campaign.

Zoo DFO Tejas Mariswamy said that noisy crackers have detrimental effects on animal health, not only the pet dogs and cats but also wild animals and birds. �The campaign was an effort to ensure that this Diwali is a little less stressful to the animals. We are hopeful that people will avoid using noisy crackers,� he said.

Dr Arindam of the State Zoo led the team of young volunteers. Barnali Deka of Nature�s Green Guard group also participated and encouraged the students in their noble efforts.

Dr Arindam said over 30 volunteers participated in the campaign.

�We could cover more than 300 people, as we went to the residences in the vicinity of the Zoo, the nearby lanes, shops and also met people travelling on buses and motorcycles,� he said, adding the people appreciated the move and reciprocated. Many Zoo animals, especially the newborn ones, have been kept under observation in view of the bursting of crackers, he said.
