It’s that time of the year when you can officially say ‘there’s a light at the end of the tunnel’. No, we literally mean that there’s just two weeks of the daily humdrum of life to get through before the festival of lights is here. And what is the festival of lights without the classic explosion of light, colour and sound? It’s a green Diwali.
Come on! Spare the environment the heartache over your festivities. Nobody asked you to cut down on your fun though! This Diwali, you could go the way many people have been going over the last few years now – environment-friendly firecrackers. Or in other words, the best of both worlds.
Let us tell you more. There are three main kinds now, each one extremely interesting:
These are the original ones made of recycled paper. Unlike the conventional firecrackers, these do not contain chemicals. They’re designed to emit less smoke and noise and yet have the colourful sparks. Even the deafening ones, like the bombs, are manufactured with lower decibel levels now. They’re extremely reasonable and fit in all budgets.
These have an electronic circuit that produces a high decibel sound when switched on. So there is no pollution involved in using these as there is no fire and they can be reused any number of times. These are slightly more expensive tough but worth your money.
These are by far the most innovative and intriguing. Based on pyro technique, each set of 3D crackers comes with a pair of 3D glasses. They’re free from air and noise pollution and will look like magic once you see the world through your 3D-tinted glasses.
Now that we have that established, where can you get them in time for to enjoy them this Diwali? Here is where:
1.Sai Prasad Fireworks
