While we all are literally gasping for clean air in India, the Indian Square in New Jersey was littered with trash after the Diwali celebration.
A viral video of water being sprayed on the trash-filled roads of the Indian Square has put Indians all over the world to shame.

Hats off to NJ Police handling the mess Very professionally 👏👏 pic.twitter.com/39nVmGaejO
The streets were filled with all sorts of post-Diwali celebration wastes like wrappers, crackers, empty boxes, bottles etc.
Twitter is evidently very disappointed:

The problem is we do all these shameless things, but still are not ashamed.— KusiGenre (@kusi1956) October 29, 2019
When will we realise that Diwali is a festival of love and light and it literally has nothing to do with polluting your surroundings?
