Di­wali com­par­i­tively qui­eter this year

Mid Day - - Comment - A ZAFAR

Di­wali this year seemed to have been peace­ful and sound­less com­pared to pre­vi­ous years. The Supreme Court or­der has struck a bal­ance be­tween the in­ter­ests of the fire­cracker in­dus­try and the right to pub­lic health, al­low­ing the man­u­fac­ture and sale of only ‘green’ and re­duced-emis­sion or ‘im­proved’ crack­ers. I hope next Di­wali is com­pletely pol­lu­tion-free.
