- Yes to water no to crackers:
In the excitement of the juncture we often forget to take sufficient water for the day thus leading to dehydration. Whether you are at home or at a friend’s place keep a bottle of water handy to meet your daily limit of 2-4 liters.

With little attention to these basics, Diwali will turn out to be much fruitful than every other year.
