The euphoria of Christmas in India was ablaze throughout India yesterday, and the social media witnessed a tsunami of feeds and posts on Christmas and Santa Claus!

On this eve of Christmas, Twitter also saw a new trend emerging out of India’s pockets. Tulsi Pujan Diwas has started being celebrated in various corners of India, and it was at the forefront of Twitter too! The platform saw both negative and positives comments from people!

Some Tweets on Tulsi Pujan Diwas by popular names!  







Tulsi or Holy Basil has been part of Indian Household since ages. It belongs to Ocimum tenuiflorum botanical group. It is easily found in India. It is herbal and medicinal in nature! If you plant a tulsi tree, it acts as anti-bacterial protection towards its surrounding atmosphere. Tulsi is Eco-friendly!

Though people are calling usage of Basil or celebration of Tulsi Diwas as Saffronization of Christmas, there is not even an iota of doubt that Tulsi is way better than any other plant or tree. Also, the usage of resources to plant tulsi and use it is frugal.

Just like we save water on hold, curb noises on Diwali, Prevent immersion of Ganpati idols in rivers and lakes, let’s take a step ahead and switch over to eco-friendly Christmas and use our eco-friendly Indian pine tree, i.e., Tulsi plant, in the coming times.

Go green.

Go Tulsi.

Save the Planet.
