Festival of Lights is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya along with Devi Sita and brother Lakshman after 14 years of exile (vanvaas). In a bid to promote eco-friendly traditional lamps this Diwali, Harikrishna, owner of Hechanna dairy has come up with cow dung diyas.

He has also engaged 30 people in making and marketing the diyas who were struggling to sustain during the pandemic.

Harikrishna and team selling around 1000 diya ahead of Deepawali. Apart from cow dung diyas he also sells, homemade ghee and cow dung.

Apart from generating business opportunities, the use of cow-dung products will lead to a cleaner and healthier environment. With a call to boycott Chinese products, the Indian market has a golden opportunity to recover the economic crisis caused by the nationwide lockdown.
