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,
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
