ATS Advantage: From crackers to creativity

Residents and the RWA got together to cover the common areas of the society in pretty rangolis to deter other residents from bursting crackers.

ATS Advantage: From crackers to creativity

What once used to turn into a graveyard of burst crackers, ashes and singed grass after Diwali, today sits pretty with colourful rangolis instead. We are talking about the amphitheatre, lawns and common areas of ATS Advantage in Indirapuram. The society, in a “Say No To Crackers” initiative, decided to turn its firecracker playgrounds into a pretty deterrent for the very same activity.

The result?










This, and a society devoid of potentially hazardous smoke.

Speaking to City Spidey, Usha Singh, an RWA member, said that the rangolis had been created by the joint participation of residents. “We are hoping it will deter residents from bursting crackers in the areas,” she added.

Anika Aren, a resident who was part of the rangoli creation, said they had also proposed a deepotsav, in which every family in the society could light a diya in the area and celebrate a happy and safe Diwali.

The society had organised a special rangoli and photography contest as well.

Anjula Negi, convenor of the event, said that residents from all 21 towers participated in the rangoli contest. “We have placed rangolis in various common areas of the society to dissuade residents from bursting crackers. It is all for the sake of health and general wellbeing. We will further decorate the pathways of the society with diyas and flowers,” she added.

Kudos, ATS Advantage!
