Boycott Chinese Lights This Diwali to Show Some Love to Your Nation


The recent Uri attacks have heated the clash between the two countries, India and Pakistan. And as we all know China has been supporting Pakistan widely amidst these tensed circumstances. So, to show love to the nation, Jaipurites are boycotting Chinese lights this Diwali.

#BoycottChinaProduct

China’s continuous support towards Pakistan such as its vote in the United Nations against India and China blocking a one of the tributaries of Brahmaputra River from entering India, has led to a social media campaign #BoycottChinaProduct, which is going viral.

Everything used by households on Diwali from decorative lights to lamps, gift items and artificial flowers fall in the category of Chinese products. People have been asked to boycott them all. However, shopkeepers dealing in Chinese lighting and other decorative products made in China are confused about whether to join the campaign or not. After all, it is business to them. Several citizens of India, including Jaipurites have decided not to make use of them.

But this is not the only reason why we at cityofjaipur.com are asking you to not use Chinese products. What’s more important than this campaign launched out of hatred between the nations is the livelihood of our own people.

Think of Our Potters

This Diwali Earthen Lamps Not Chinese Lamps

Using more of Chinese lights spells darkness into the lives of the traditional potters of India, who work hard day and night to create stocks of beautiful earthen diyas for Diwali.

We at cityofjaipur.com also appeal people of Jaipur to encourage sale of earthen diyas prepared by local artisans, villagers and traditional potters.

Indian Lights

For those who say that Chinese lights look prettier, we have two things to say. Firstly, an array of beautifully decorated diyas can enlighten your houses and shops so well that you can never compare their beauty and sense of elegance to the Chinese lights.

Secondly, the Diwali markets in Jaipur also display an attractive range of Indian lights in different styles such as rope lights and other decorative hangings.
