Diwali being the auspicious festival of peace and prosperity is meant to spread happiness among all. Nevertheless, it should not become someone’s misery and disregard animals out of the scenario.

This Diwali these tips will keep your pet safe in the festivities and ensure animal safety all the while you enjoy the celebration Diwali.

Symptoms you should watch out for in your pet:

  • Any excessive trembling, panting or salivation
  • Untimely urinating or defecation
  • Excessive barking, fear or aggressiveness, crying
  • Loss of appetite or not eating for more than two days

Animals are very sensitive to noise and the sound of bursting crackers create unbearable sensitization among them. Use pet earmuffs to avoid stress and assure safety to your pet during Diwali.

Few aspects to be noted by Pet owners for keeping their pet safe in Diwali:

  • During any fireburst in your neighbourhood, protect your pet indoors and stay with them, if possible
  • Play some soothing music in the room where the pet is kept, to keep it calm and divert it’s attention.
  • Draw down the windows and curtains and turn on the TV or radio to obstruct the outside noise.
  • Keep your pet hydrated as the noise causes a lot of anxiety in the animal.
  • Check out for unrestrained behavior by unkind people who tie firecrackers to the dog’s tails and, if required, report them to the police.
  • Visit a veterinarian and get an anti-anxiety shot or homeopathic medicines for your pet to keep him undisturbed.
  • To maintain that your pet dog is not lost to you forever, make him wear an updated pet tag describing your contact information on it.
  • Keep a watch on animals wearing collars and tags who seem to be lost. Take them to your local animal shelter, or look after them until their home can be found.
  • Desist and discourage people from saying NO to noisy firecrackers.

This Diwali celebrate peace with your loved ones and also give a chance to the animals to reside peacefully. Animals are also living beings and have sentiments similar to us. We must educate children to be empathetic towards animals and take specific care during Diwali for keeping their pet safe. This festive season illuminate your home with diyas, candles and other ornamental artifacts that are friendly to all.

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

By Aishwarya Jain

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
