The new sound of Diwali
Whoever said the city was insensitive? This Diwali, as the Supreme Court sets the limit for bursting crackers to merely two hours, there were apprehensions that people may not really fancy the idea of a ‘lowon-cracker’ Diwali. We spoke to a number of Mumbaiites only to be pleasantly surprised. The city is not only applauding the decision, but also feels celebrating the festival with just love and lots of light is only the best way. A noise and air pollution free Diwali wins over the ‘patakas’ anyday.
