The new sound of Di­wali

HT Cafe - - LIFESTYLE - Ahana Datta Chaud­hury ht.cafe@htlive.com

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 ‘low-on-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.
