Diwali is one of the most important festivals in the Indian calendar and is celebrated with much fervor and gaiety all across the nation.
People are dressed up in their ethnic best and ring in the festival with much joy and happiness.
However, every year, we also witness a large number of fire and injury cases which ruin the joy of festivities.
So it is better to exercise caution and be a little proactive in preventing such situations.
Today we bring you some reasons why you must never wear synthetic during Diwali.
This will indirectly help you keep burn injuries at bay, and make your Diwali a joyful and memorable one. Read on to know more.
Highly susceptible to fire
Every time you wear synthetic and go out to burn the crackers, you are endangering your personal safety. Synthetic is the fabric which is highly prone to catching fires. Therefore, it is always best to avoid it, especially during Diwali.
2. Sticks to the body when burning
In the unfortunate event of your clothes catching fire, it becomes even harder to extinguish it when you wear synthetic. The fabric sticks very closely to the body, thereby resulting in a high likelihood of severe burn injuries. And that is something which none of us wants! So try and refrain from wearing stuff made of synthetic on Diwali.
Hard to manage
When you wear synthetic in the form of a beautiful saree or even a gorgeous Anarkali suit, you are making it difficult to administer your outfit when you go out on a cracker burning spree with family and friends.
With the dupatta or a saree pallu to manage, it is easy to get distracted, and this might ultimately result in your clothes catching fire. We are sure you do not want to mar the joy of celebration with such an incident!
Fire spreads rapidly with synthetic
Another major concern when you wear synthetic on Diwali is that the fire spreads rapidly once it strikes the fabric.
So you not only make it a hard task to prevent yourself from serious burns but might also endanger someone else’s safety.
Now that you know how harmful it is to wear synthetic on Diwali, we are sure you will avoid it altogether during the festival. Here are some alternatives that you can go for.
- Always prefer cotton or jute fabric which is less susceptible to catching fire.
- Never go in for loose-fitting or flowy fabrics; it is always a tough ask to manage those, especially when out on a Diwali night where everyone in the neighborhood is burning crackers.
- For the ladies, there is always a special word of caution when it comes to the dupatta or the saree pallu. Make sure you have them tucked in properly or tied at the back. Do not let them fall while you burn crackers. This is one of the simplest yet most effective ways of combating fire-related injuries.
- And last but not the least, avoid synthetic at all costs!
A little awareness and caution on our part can go a long way in enhancing the safety of our family and friends, as well as ourselves!
