Some videos are viral on social media:- it says that agarbatti (essence sticks) is poison, also bamboo sticks are used to make agarbatti, and in Hindu religion burning bamboo stick is also a sin, may it is right. but isn't it a conspiracy of giant companies, conspiracy against poor and small local vendors. Giant companies want to ban this essence sticks so that their mosquito coil, mosquito liquid, and air freshener sell will be in boom. But the question is are their mosquito coil and liquids, air freshener safer than agarbatti? or more poisonous than agarbatti? and are those allowed on your dharma Answer is the big NO. without agarbatti pooja rituals are also incomplete so are you really dharmic? and the question is then why fooling yourself by believing in those videos. Support Local vendors and grow together.
