I have cracked the secret why kids burn crackers.

Every year the dad of my friend takes us to Chandni Chowk to buy loads of crackers. He gives us a free hand in buying ANY CRACKER we wish to and we wonder, why he gets extra- generous when it comes to crackers. In fact he even suggests us to experiment with the latest crackers. Like this chinese ladder,ezgif.com-gif-maker

You must have noticed that your father never asks you to stop burning crackers, because you share at least one common thing with him… that is the love of burning crackers. So the kids can not be held responsible for burning crackers its basically the uncles and papas who cannot fight away their love of crackers. In the apartments that I live, it’s the uncles who carry the baton and bring car (boot) loads of crackers on the pretext of getting them for us, children. We are occasionally given chance of burning one or two ‘safe’ Anars or Fuljhadis. The Mega Blockbuster ones are burnt by proud papas. Their faces glee in pride, and the spark can actually be seen in their eyes.

So instead of blaming us children for cracker pollution, Be brave, bold and courageous enough to accept that there is a child in you!!!!!

By the way, uncle if you don’t have time to go to Chandni Chowk this Diwali, you can now order them from bigbasket.com

    I’ve not seen any parent, atleast as far as I recall, deny that there’s a self satisfaction factor in bursting crackers and kids are just a medium for it. And you’re right kids sleep by 11 latest, tired from the excitement and amazement, while the parents go on…….

    Personally it’s not fun for me.

    You’ve rightly pointed out that parents(specially father )are more fond of crackers. But i think time has come when kids should ask their parents to not to buy crackers. And i think parents are not going to say no to their kids on this.

    After reading your blog, it seems adults are kids and kids are adults 😊. Hope Vikramaditya you and your friend can skip going to Chandni Chowk this Diwali.!!

    It’s the change you youngsters could bring by your effort. More lights and less crackers is a good concept as well.

    Good observation !!!

    I would like to see that Chinese ladder thing though 😛

    True – parents are more interested but their intention is clear – they only follow you. Aapki Khushi.
