Ahead of Diwali, several eco-friendly methods are being implemented to make candles and diyas. After cow dung in Odisha, now ‘Bamboo Diyas’ are being made in Tripura. 

The diyas were made by an all-women self-help group in the Sepahijala district. Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb launched them recently. 

“We never had the concept of bamboo candles until the DM, BDO, and cluster coordinator came with the proposal to us, asking if we can make candles out of bamboo. We accepted the proposal and enjoyed making them in different sizes, designs, and prices,” a group member Dipali Paul.

This group has is the source of employment opportunities for many women in Tripura. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his monthly radio address has emphasized on the bamboo sector and vocal for local and this initiative of the women’s SHGs proves that the concept of the PM has reached even to the remotest of the villages in Tripura,” said Deb. 

Despite being made of bamboo, these diyas and candles are made in such a way that while one can light them, they will not catch fire. So not just an eco-friendly Diwali but a safe one as well.
