Fire­works Gun to the Tem­ple

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos the re­port ‘110 Killed, 280 In­jured in Ker­ala Tem­ple Fire­works Tragedy’ (Apr 11), Sri Narayana Guru, Ker­ala’s great­est so­cial re­former, spoke against crack­ers and ex­plo­sives at fes­ti­vals, but the peo­ple don’t lis­ten. Loss of life is a high price to pay for watch­ing a mass of colour in the sky. Un­reg­u­lated fire­work dis­plays we set off in the cramped precincts of our places of wor­ship is an open door to dis­as­ter. A K Antony and In­dian Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion are right in call­ing for a ban on fire­works pos­ing threats to hu­man lives.
