Diya is a sign of prosperity, ideally you should use the best quality oil (that you consume) for diyas.
Its better to light lesser diyas (even 1 is fine ) rather than compromising on quality smile

are @androgame no oil is pure, so its like choosing what is less impure. for prosperity we have no alternative other than cut our budget, and still say All is Well

I do understand those problems bro, but we should try to do the best as per our beliefs. Would suggest using any oil that you regularly use for cooking (we use ghee and mustard oil here )

when your surroundings will be lit by chinese leds how can we expect a geniuine indian religious atmosphere? still to stay sane and avoid sadness on a festival, i have to give it a shot to maintain balance between prosperity and genuinity

Also, i saw dalda (the worst kind of oil in my opinion ) selling at 200 rupees a liter, so there’s not much difference these days .
Everything is expensive

Ps: for Havaan purpose people use Adulterated ghee, only the fire has to keep burning, so it produces a lot of smoke in havaankund
There has to be balance though, even though adulterated it resembles ghee metamorphologically and at the look of it, we cant use kerone etc
it will be a sin per se

Let people do whatever they want, if you are believing in the rituals then you are giving your best for your own sake smile
Religion administratively is a voluntary thing

This is not really about hurting sentiments bro, but in the current scenario there arent many practical options .
And there are other ways of cutting costs (buy lesser sweets ? No crackers ? No outside food ? )
These seem much healthier smile

sweets we can make

crackers we can avoid

but diwali is a festival of dias and lamps
essentials

I dont think it would be right to distinguish between diyas.
Maybe use less oil , so the diyas would go off earlier .
Would just conclude with quality over quantity .
Rest its about Goddess Lakshmi, so considering money here is an irony

This somehow ☝️ reminded me of Chichi’s dialogue -
Abe hata saawan ki ghata, khaa, khuja, batti bujha ke soja intukle pintukle, bandi khareli hai, aunty baja rahi hai baar-baar ghanti, kulha ghumaake paschim ki or palat le, bahut ho gaya ab phootle, vatakle, shaana ban raha kya? 🤣😂
