The festival of lights—Diwali—was a messy celebration at the India Square in New Jersey. A viral clip shows gushes of water being sprayed by multiple hydrants to clear the trash on streets.
Empty boxes, wrappers of crackers and other sorts of waste material had filled the streets. Crowds gathered at India Square while it was being cleaned.
