I sincerely believe that in today's scenario where the cities are bursting at the seams with increased population of people and number of vehicles , we can no longer afford to rejoice in such primitive ways by creating noise and fire/ light by way of bursting crackers.

Cracker's be it on festivals like Deepavali or any event like the sports' inauguration ceremony, or the victory of politician and parties, or during weddings create havoc for the environment and our health by causing sound and air pollution. 

Statistics prove that an increased number of children and adults are suffering from respiratory diseases because of air pollution. We cannot worsen the air quality by something that is absolutely unnecessary and completely avoidable.

Each one of us as a citizen can help to mitigate this problem by saying no to crackers of any kind.

Therefore, I would like to urge the government to enforce a total and unconditional ban on using crackers in our country.

In order to achieve this the ruling party must show by example and not celebrate their victory in any election by bursting crackers.
