Default Re: Will you burn crackers this diwali?

At present, New Delhi is beset by a Poisonous Atmosphere post Diwali. Smoke + Fog = Absolute Danger.

Diwali Crackers are but one contributor. The rest of it is the Charcoal fires and the burning crops and all the rest of it, along with Vehicle emissions as well.

Come Pongal in TN and the jollity is amplified by burning tyres and muck in the name of "Bhogi" where the old is supposed to be destroyed to give way to the new.

Absolutely nonsensical stuff, in today's world. All the real "essences" of these festivals have been corrupted for convenience.

And we, our next gen, our pets - everyone pays the price of living and breathing in this poisonous atmosphere!

Regulations and Laws are all very well but are completely useless without ruthless enforcement.
