To celebrate Diwali, Dainik Bhaskar made the biggest diya (lamp) using an iron frame, flex and LED lights at Sector 17 Plaza, Chandigarh on Oct 22, 2014. The 16 ft tall and18 ft wide diya had LED lights fixed all around the rim so that the lamp was visible from a distance. Ten people were involved in making the lamp. Residents were asked to bring their own diyas and candles to place on a lamp-shaped design on the ground. It was done for a pollution-free Diwali without firecrackers and smoke!
