For the children not by the children!!!

Hai. I am a good lover of firecrackers as the festival of lights(Diwali) are fast approaching in this one of the biggest event is to burst fire crackers. As its been enjoyed by both kids as well as adults. But now a days this percentage is being shrinking due to many reasons like rules being imposed over the bursting of crackers
1) Time limit.
2) Decibel level of the fire cracker.
More than this some schools and misionaries are doing some activities among the children not to burst crackers in the festivel time as they are telling fire crackers are manufactured by children. By doing this i dont know what they are achieving, one thing i can tell they are destroying the hope of the families who are totally relay on this work. there are around one lakh people who are directly or indirectly involving in the industry for their livelihood. Here i want to tell about sivakasi where 95% of the total fire cracker is being produced. there are around 200 fireworks factories and 350 match works most of the people living here rely on this industry and printing industry which is also rely on this.
Sometimes back there is a controversy in the region that children are involving in the manufacturing of the crackers. I agree to that because there are some incidents which related to the child labouring happened. But now the things have changed now every fireworks are checked frequently to ensure that children are not involving in the manufacturing of crackers. But still the child labour is becoming a major issue in blacking out the sale of the cracker.

Let buy cracker and enjoy it!...

A very different view from all popular views on fir crackers. But then you may have the inside dirt since you are from Sivakasi.

Just one question.

Do you have any stake in one of those factories?

Just kidding dude. And great post. An interesting point of view.

If you guys are so concern, then why don't you buy fireworks with 'NCLE' labels - NO CHILD LABOUR EMPLOYED which may cost you a little bit more. Visit
