Let's explode crackers. HARDCORE. And fill the lights with parachute & glitter crackers. And add some kambi mathapp & buswanam on the side. Deepawali is a national festival which showcases our ancient culture & history. We mustn't hold back- at least for that day.
Ideally, buy LOTS of crackers & anything u can get ur hands on. By buying crackers we're also helping out some cottage industries. Cracker sales is like Diwali bonus for ppls working in office. Imagine how happy u get when u get a bonus for this day (I have paid bonuses so I kno). Same happiness cottage industry folk get when crackers sell.
And as a bonus, u can also explode crackers & light up the sky w/ as many people as u can- preferably the ppl who can't afford to celebrate. That will put a smile on their face.
Just look at how the Germans celebrate Oktoberfest. We should show the same festive & celebrative spirit and not get caught up in any self imposed restriction. Not on this for celebration!
