I have never been able to get just why people go crazy on Diwali. What is it that they get out of setting fire to little explosives? What kind of pleasure do people get out of creating this insane amount of noise and polluting the air way beyond sane levels?

I think I was perhaps six or seven years old when I last remotely enjoyed setting off firecrackers. I don't think that anyone who's any older and more mature than that should actually enjoy doing so much harm to the environment. I mean, Delhi is already in a state where you can't see the stars in the sky. Why do people want to be unable to see the moon as well? Or is it the sun that they are trying to hide? That won't make the scorching summer any more bearable, people!
