The current generation has been pussified beyond recognition. The future for World Government Slavery is bright.
For over a decade, hacks writing in English-language newspapers have been moaning and groaning about the noise and smoke generated by Diwali crackers. Celebrities chimed in with how they only like sparklers and flower pots. Finally, the Pollution board and local courts have laid their heavy hands on the matter.
Thus, in Bangalore City, road-side shops can no longer stock or sell firecrackers. The “fire sale” is restricted to a few open playgrounds. Apparently, this is how its been going on for a few years now. I happened to notice it only this time.
A small number of shops have opened at the Vyalikaval grounds.
