Is there a need for a complete ban on firecrackers on Diwali?

Varieties of crackers are sold in India's markets during Diwali, which includes rockets, sparks, flower pots, etc. From my perspective, there must be a complete prohibition on the sale and purchase of crackers; however, many people who do jobs in the manufacturing and sale of these will become jobless if the production of these is stopped. Crackers' disadvantages outweigh the advantages; therefore, it would be better if the government enforced strict laws against these. Besides, it is the ritual of burning lamps on Diwali and presenting Diwali gifts online, not burning crackers. There are multiple demerits of using crackers, and some of them are mentioned below.

 

The explosions in crackers manufacturing factories 

There have been many cases of fire explosions in factories where bursts are being manufactured. Then they suffer from huge losses because the material can be destroyed in the fire. Some employees also lose their lives. Employees of these companies are at constant risk of being injured by fire. A single spark can burst any cracker, which in result can cause an explosion. It is better not to do any job than doing these kinds of jobs as they can lose their lives. 

 

Injuries of common people 

People who are not using crackers can also get injured along with the people who are burning them. Here I want to tell my grandmother's story whose hand and arm were ignited with a rocket on Diwali. When she was young, she was walking on a road, and suddenly one rocket burst by someone fell on her arm. Although she could perform some tasks with her hand yet her fingers were wholly burnt. There were also scars on her arm. So, these crackers can injure those who are not even using them, and people can suffer significant injuries. 

 

A threat to the environment 

Burning firecrackers can increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, which results in global warming. The smoke of these can create suffocation, especially for those who have Asthma and can also cause other breathing problems. This residue of crackers pollutes the air and becomes the reason for air pollution. The sound of these crackers is too loud when burnt and thus creates noise pollution. Moreover, unnecessary waste of these fireworks creates land pollution as well. 

 

Wastage of money and materials 

Some people spend a big chunk of cash on bursts, which could be used to feed many poor people. These can be people who are unaware of or who are affluent. Impoverished people sometimes can afford to buy even fundamental needs when they do not get work any day as they depend on daily wages. Some individuals want to show off their wealth; therefore, they like to burst crackers. The raw material used in the manufacturing of crackers can be used to manufacture other productive goods. When resources are limited, then these must be used for crucial jobs only. 

 

Scare animals 

Many animals can get disturbed or injured from these illuminations. Mostly stray animals can get afraid of these. These innocent creatures who do not cause any harm to anyone should not be harmed or disturbed. 

 

Manufacturers have now started production and sale of green crackers, which according to them, cause less pollution. These are for those who can't resist themselves from bursting crackers & diwali express delivery. However, the burning of crackers is unnecessary because of religious beliefs, and these crackers are not originated in India. Chinese people first used these to that end; there is no cultural or traditional connection to the burning of crackers. 

Nowadays, people are worried about the environment and their health; hence they burn fewer firecrackers than in the past, but these must be forbidden entirely by individuals due to their harmful effects.
