    So how the idea came to his mind to feed the animals and celebrate the festival with them, Shah said he always believe in non cruelty to animals and that gave him the idea. “I am a Jain and a firm believer in non cruelty towards animals. Every year I saw bursting crackers caused problems for animals which cannot speak or express their pain to us. So I decide to feed them every Sunday and continue my routine for the last 10 years. This year I decide to celebrate Diwali with the nature and happy to give the happiness to the animals,” said Shah.
