Do you know there is a scientific reason involved with our bursting of crackers on Deepavali festival ?

Let me tell u.
The occurrence of Deepavali festival coincides the change in climate. The change in season witnesses a multiplication of insects in large numbers which happens during their breeding time.

One of the method to control the insect population is to use sulphur gas. By bursting fire crackers sulphur gas is propagated, which helps in killing the insects around us. Yes, we are actually controlling the insect population by bursting crackers.

We must thank our ancestors for devising such an innovative method to help us ourselves live safely.

@ anonymous
i would like ur comment to be published.
yes, the damage is being done.
ofcourse is it due to population explosion / our unplanned urbanisation?
thanks for the hour long traffic jams which has become a usual news in our metros

A much safer way to control insects would be to use insect repellents. May be our ancestors didn't have them at their time. But why have we failed to recognise more safer options to prevent insects. Sulphur gas is not only harful for insects but also for humans. It is carcinogenic and causes lots or respiratory problems. The noise is harmful both for man and pet animals like dogs and cats.

@ anonymous
our ancestors have devised the method matching their times
but we have not updated it to suit our present scenario

Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
