WE HAVE A BIGGER DILEMMA THAN THE SHAKESPEAREAN HAMLET! TO BUY FIRE CRACKERS OR NOT, THAT IS THE QUESTION.

During Deepavali, every year Hindus are faced with a question whether to buy sparklers and crackers or not. Do I do anything wrong by using fire crackers?

My view is………………

Hindu youths must buy fire-crackers and fire them happily.

Otherwise arson attacks will increase!

During bandhs and riots, more houses, buildings and buses will be burnt. Why?

Human beings are pyromaniacs according to science journals.

From the days we lived in caves millions of years ago, we started big fires for cooking and to drive away the wild animal ; in cold places we did it for keeping us warm.

This is in our genes. If we don’t allow to use this genetic trait, our youths will use it during riost and bandhs.

In Hindiusim, everything is scientifically thought and placed in the scriptures. Thy have made cushions and shock absorbers to solve all sorts of problems to reduce tension, depression , riotous behaviour and suicides.

 

Even western countries allow fire works and bonfires during Guy fawkes day and other events.

BILLIONS OF CIGARETTES SMOKED EVERY MINUTE CAUSE MORE POLLUTION AND CANCER THAN FIRE WORKS. STOP IT. DONT STOP FIRE CRACKERS.

 

COME TO LONDON AND WASHINGTON. DURING DEEPAVALI AND INDEPENDENCE DAY MILLION CRACKERS ARE FIRED BY THE GOVERNMENT. GO TO OLYMPICS. WHAT YOU DO ON DIWALI DAY IS DONE IN ONE OR TWO HOURS THERE. BILLIONS OF CIGARETTES AND BEEDIS AND CIGARS CAUSE MORE POLLUTION.

ASK AMERICA TO STOP THE ARMS SALE. ASK BRITAIN TO STOP THE ARMS SALE. THE FIRE ARMS AND BOMBS THEY SELL ARE USED IN 55 COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD EVERY DAY– SAYS ECONOMIC TIMES.

 

MAKING FIRE CRACKERS IS A BIG INDUSTRY IN TAMIL NADU. ANTI TAMILS ARE AGAINST THE DIWALI CRACKERS.

Leather industry and factories pollute the air more than anything.

NOISE POLLUTION

Some people argue fireworks create noise pollution.

Loud speakers at political meetings and mosques don’t allow us to have an undisturbed sleep. The bombs that explode in 55 countries on any one day, the billions of cigarettes smoked at any one day cause more deaths. No US President could stop the arms sale even inside US after weekly shooting on innocent people. Mac Donalds in USA sell fire arms! Why shouldn’t we sell fire works for one week?

 

In short the arms and weapons, the cigars and cigarettes, one dollar or one pound shops run by Chinese or with Chinese goods, the fireworks done during Olympics, New Year Day, Independence day, Special celebrations, the leather industry, the nuclear tests by the Western countries, the jet planes manufactured by the Western countries, the thousands of cargo / container ships and Oil Tankers cause terrible pollution.

 

When we consider such big every day, every minute pollution, one day Diwali fire crackers won’t harm the world. Having said that

A word of caution…………..

In those days Hindus lived in big towns wide apart; nowadays we live in big multi story buildings accommodating 500 families or so in one building!

Nearby there are hospitals and offices.

Old and sick people live very near the buildings in care homes and hospitals.

Birds and animals live in the near by woody areas.

Just born children may also be in many flats. Pregnant ladies may be there.

Since we live in densely populated areas,  doing fire works may disturb many people.

 

So Hindus must show self-restraint.

 

Fix the time for fire works between 5 am and 11 am on Diwali  day and Diwali Eve.

Let us do fireworks without hurting the feelings of others or harming them.

 

Tamil Temples paintings show that the fire- works have been in use for many centuries.

China is making big money by selling Fireworks to all the countries in the world. Let us also think how we can give more jobs suing Diwali. We know that textile industry, restaurants, sweet shops and transport make big money. Workers get Diwali bonus ad inams. Let us think positive.

 

I have already written two articles about the significance of Diwali. Please read those articles as well.
