I call out on the media propaganda that fire crackers cause more pollution than other more deadly pollutants. This is selective outrage aimed at hitting cultural traditions of a country followed for scores of generations.
If everyone were really serious about pollution control, why do people still use fossil fuels? Why do we still use coal for fuel? Why do we travel by air knowing that the carbon foot print of each ticket is quite large? Why do we drink distilled water bottled in plastic?

Happy Diwali.
