Are firecrackers dangerous?
Last year, Mumbai clocked in the Air Quality Index (AQI) of 361 the day after Diwali. Kolkata and Delhi clocked in 420 each. An AQI of 100 is considered acceptable in India. Over three crore people in these cities were breathing in the toxic sulphur nitrates, nitrogen dioxide, copper and magnesium. And that’s just three cities. Crackers are burst near continuously during the festival across India.
And while the sound is fun, it often far too loud to be safe – causing severe damage to our hearing.
So let’s have a happy Diwali and a prosperous new year with these sweets instead, that will melt in your mouth. Click here to purchase the Rs 600 box now!
