Diwali crackers allowed only between
8pm and 10 pm. That’s like no bursting
at all. Tradition is early morning
bursting on Diwali.

Which means kids won’t get to light fireworks from morning to evening on Diwali. What a shame! Those wonderful times we had making bon fires of burst fireworks is now history.

TN firecracker manufacturing is a billion dollar business. That industry is gone for good

DiwaliCrackersVerdict – every year on Diwali, we get up at 4 am; apply oil; have Diwali marundhu and fire crackers. How can we change this custom ? Can kids, who love crackers, be controlled ?
