    Even though they banned crackers there is no relief from these useless explosives . I can still hear loud crackers near almost every banquet Hall for these"Great Indian weddings ". As it is well said majority is full of fools. Abb bhagwan hi malik hai iss desh ka

      No one should be exempted from this ban, no one means no one. Not even religion function. Religion is made for human. Human health should be on priority.
