Cracker Whackers



It’s been going on for some years now. Come Diwali, many schools in urban areas start sermons about pollution and crackers to their students. Some political leaders and Bollymorons join in too along with assorted NGOs and “Miss World” type campaigners. Some schools ask students to write essays on pollution-free Diwali. Some hold elocution contests like “What will you do to have a pollution-free Diwali”? And because the Lutyens Crawlers are right in Delhi some schools specially “tutor” kids to do a song and dance to promote a pollution-free Diwali and the Commie, anti-Hindu media is invited to grab a video and do a show about it as CNN18 does here:

All very nice. Nobody should really have a problem with a “pollution-free-anything” let alone Diwali. But this noble campaign would be nice if it were uniformly done for festivities of all religions. The biggest noises coming out on this are always from Delhi – one of the biggest polluters in the world. You see, these swank campaigners with their fancy SUV trucks will pollute all they like but have problems only with Hindu festivals. That’s the problem. They want cracker-less Diwali, water-less Holi, Rakhee-less Raksha Bandhan, Raavan-less Ram-Leela and so on. They even rant about Karwa Chauth. Multiple fraud-accused scumbags like Teesta Setalvad even want Hindutva banned from public life but are fine with Quran recitals at election campaigns:

Some years back the media used to regularly carry out campaigns about adulterated sweets around Diwali while the same jerks will tour gluttony, muttony areas during Eid to tell us how great the road-side food is. And for a couple of years the focus has shifted to exemplary love for dogs and cats who are offended by crackers. This is never complete unless some Bollymoron sermonises the world about it.

Seems like the only time Anushka Sharma really over-loves animals is when they are chopped, skinned, boiled or roasted or fried and served to her on a plate to gobble up. Come Diwali, she’s worried about her pet and how the world tortures it with crackers during Diwali. There was some other media-moron who likes her meat dripping with blood, so it’s okay when streets are littered with blood from cows and goats slaughtered by her lovable chefs.

This whole “dogs are scared” started with the US. And the US does have a history of “Cracker Whackers”. Now the population of Cracker Whackers is growing in India too. The Americans love firecrackers and come the 4th of July they light up their skies (and even during Halloween) in most cities and towns with greatest of fireworks:

That’s how the “it scares my pets” thing started in the US and then the Indian “useful idiots” imported it to India. But the Americans who complain may have a genuine cause if you realise they own the highest number of pets in the world:

If you add up dogs and cats in the first image of the statistics above that is around 150 million pets. That figure is for a population of just over 300 million humans in the US. I don’t have any reliable figures for India but could find this article which estimates the figure of Indian pets at about 10 million in 2011. And the US does have other “loud crackers” which claim lives. Guns killed over 13000 people and injured over 26000. All the reports on the statistics hover around these figures for gun-crimes. I am not aware how many dogs were killed or lost their hearing due to firecrackers. Hope someone finds the data on that.

The activist-jerks haven’t stopped at mere public campaigns. They have even petitioned govts and the Supreme Court for a ban on crackers during Diwali. Now, you have to wonder why they want a ban on crackers ONLY during Diwali. Are crackers used only during Diwali? These are used even in weddings and other occasions. The worst offenders are those wedding “Baraats” that burst fire-crackers on public roads with their long procession. They cause nuisance to other users of roads and block traffic. Fantastically, these activist-jerks used “three toddlers” to file the petition in SC. The SC rightly threw it out.

These same activists don’t have a problem with thousands of illegal loudspeakers that serve as alarm-clocks to the local population early mornings. Of course, these are from the “peaceful” lot and the activists are scared to their nuts for their lives against them as are the politicians. Not to be left behind, ModiSarkar’s “MyGov” also issued advisories for a pollution-free Diwali. I don’t think the morons behind this account even realise the irony behind their well-intentioned nonsense:

Respiratory diseases. Injury to body parts. Impairment of hearing. Distress to animals. And, of course, polluting the environment. Most politicians and Babus aren’t very bright, just as most journalists are not. The BJP would do well to look inward and look at its own stupidity in doling out such sermons. Because there is no political party in this country that does not use a heavy number of fire-crackers to celebrate election victories or to even welcome their leader back from a hospital-treatment or from jail. Bollywood too does that (remember Sanjay Dutt or Salman Khan returning?). Here are BJP folks celebrating something smoky:

Well, that looks like a major victory in a State election or national election. Doesn’t it? Hold your breath – That kind of smoky-celebration is for a paltry “by poll” victory in a town called Maihar. What stops the GOI asking all political parties to first stop using crackers for election wins? Nothing! But as with frivolous dog-protectors and “Miss World” type activists they sermonise people only on Diwali about it. As the SC put it in the report I quoted earlier, people cannot be stopped celebrating their festivities with crackers as long as they do it sensibly and without harming others or the public in general. The best way to handle this is to make sure crackers are used responsibly especially with young children and also not near hospitals or old-age homes etc. Maybe a statutory warning “Children below 12 should not use firecrackers without parental supervision” or something like that would be more helpful than mindless rants against Diwali-crackers. There is a flip side to all this that no one even talks about. I received this beautiful Diwali greeting from a friend on Whatsapp:

video
It escapes general notice but people may have reduced usage of printed greeting cards in large numbers. So maybe tell them how many trees we may have saved. Cracker use in Diwali has also reduced to a good extent and is now done more responsibly. But Diwali without the sound of crackers and sparklers and “Diyas” and lights would be bizarre. So, celebrate with greater joy and enthusiasm. A HAPPY DIWALI to all … regardless of the Cracker Whackers.

  1. Good piece. I have seen industrialist complain of so many festivals and so many holidays. Workers leaving jobs and reporting erratically after festivals not immediately the next day. These people forget that they are in the business and the eco-system because of the culture and social milieu. It pains when they are dependent of overseas sales and do not mind vacations of Europeans and Americans in July or Dec. We are taught to denigrate everything that is Indian and understand with empathy for everything foreign. So is for crackers. We are asked to favour Odd-Even but not smoke free technology. I am very sure how highways in brain are sabotaged by so called educated protagonists against Indian ethos backed by Indian promoted newspapers like Dainik Bhaskar for waterless Holi - they run a campaign for Tilak Holi for several days.

  7. They enjoy rave parties which cause huge disturbances to the public. They participate in baarats where crackrs were burst and play huge drums for the entire night. They eat all kinds of living things that can be cooked. But they are worried for "Their Pets". Not for all street dogs, street cats, brids etc., But only for their pets. what a shame.

  10. Happy Diwali. A Diwali without crackers is no Diwali at all. Instead of bursting crackers on the roads, we could have some designated spaces in all muhallas. All kids and adults could gather there and burst crackers. Might be more fun that way.

    1. There are some people in India who hv no known legal sources of income simply because either they are unemployable or they have no entrepreneurial skills or they are simply lazy to do any productive work.....OR THEY ARE JUST PLAIN ENVIOUS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE SUCCESSFUL IN THEIR WORK HOWEVER SMALL OR BIG IT MAY BE.....

      SUCH PEOPLE RUN THEIR GHAR KA KHARCHA AND FINANCE THEIR OTHER PERVERSE PERKS WITH DOLES FROM FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES AND OTHER FOREIGN ORGANISATIONS WHOSE AGENDA IS TO BREAK INDIA OR CONVERT INDIA....

      The language tenor and content of these people reflects where and from whom they receive their ghar ka kharcha and perks from...

      It is simple...

      Pick up an ideology or
      Pick up an issue like human rights or liberalism or feminism or LGBT or Minority rights or Environment or Nuclear blah blah....
      Float an NGO...
      Open a bank account...
      Gather a few sidekicks and make noise to attract media attention...
      Get into media debates and rave and rant...Of course with uninterrupted airtime from some celebrity media anchors...

      NOW U R ON THE GRAVY TRAIN.....

      U can even make this a dynastic business...
      Ur children can take over from u...

      On the other side, u can have a lot of fun, publicity, media attention, international attention, awards, foreign invitations...
      U can enjoy licentious and perverse sex under the garb of liberal values...
      Even explore each others anal orifice and its contents under the garb of liberal LGBT values...
      Enjoy the best Scotch or Single Malt....
      Enjoy trips and vacations to foreign locales under the garb of conferences...
      Enjoy narcissistic publicity on TV debates....

      While all the while ur side kicks are busy attacking churches on the sly (remember delhi church attacks) or claim being attacked by gau rakshaks while travelling in an auto (remember Mumbai recently)...or cut a pigs head and plant it in front of a mosque or a cows head and plant it in front of a temple...or burn a holy book (remember punjab recently where an AAP MLA was arrested for this)....or garland some statue with chappals quietly at night.....etc etc....basically michief mongering to aid the agenda of 'BREAKING INDIA'

      Need i say anything more.....

      If the govt takes action against them...suddenly leaders from foreign countries start making funny statements...

      What to do ...After all we need FDI...?????????? THE $$$$ RULES THE WORLD....

      Its a VERY VERY compromised nation in a planet THAT APPEARS TO BE RULED BY People who look very very very TALL VERY WHITE AND FAIR AND PALE WITH BLUE/LIGHT BROWN/GREY/GREEN EYES AND BLONDE HAIR....

      WE HAVE ENEMIES WITHIN US.....
      The only solution is to PLUCK THEM OUT ONE BY ONE AND EXPOSE THEM...
      But that won't be enough......
      U know what needs to be done....

  13. V true. Americans r devoid of maintaining human relatioships n so turn to dogs n cate etc to shower their conditional, no talk back love. But hv u ever heard americans campaign a "no christmas as it is tree felling"?? No!! Thewhole western countries celebrate christmas but never compromise their tree xutring right for christmas...doesnt dumb libtard notice this??
    As for Indian strays...well these strays actually r harmful not only to humans but theu alao destroy the whole animal kingdom around them by killing other animals like squirrels,peacocks,hare,snakes,birds etc...now these poor animals r actually more imp part of our ecosystem rather than overpopulated strays. Dont pseudo animal lovers see the environmental imbalance caused due to strays killing other animals? If they love the strays so much they shd pick them all off the streets/hills etc and tend them at their own home.
    Thirdly- only hindus r targeted..not a word for the bakri id,tajia etc...remember the video where the peta activist was hounded for even talkimg about animal cruelty to ROP ppl?? Sickulars shd first b made to change ways of cults that still live in caveman age (n treat even humans at par with aninals even today) and then speak abt hindus who r already far progressive with changing times.
    So many party^minister convoys dont pollute? Party banners, flex huge photos dont lead to plastic waste??

  14. Very well presented.Compliments.BJP is being stupid if it chooses to join those brainless Bollywood girls.Same crowd tells you to eat beef.Maximum noise pollution is caused by secular,Bollywooded Hindus on 31st December every year.We don't know if any of these crooks has ever objected to 31st December celebrations.All TV channels too create so much of noise on that day.You are right about Hindus having reduced the quantum of noise polluting crackers.Hindus have seen it all and survived through millennia by adopting and constantly changing.Our ancestors ate beef, then they saw the economics of cow protection and they started worshipping cow.Same for languages,clothes,education,social customs you name it! Greeks,Egyptians,Mayans,Romans refused to change.Reason why their culture is extinct.Hindus will be around to witness the "KAYAMAT" and Resurrection.Ms Anuksha Sharma's ancestors have ensured that.

  15. I wasn't too keen on crackers, but reading this article many pieces have fallen into place. Yes, there IS a pattern to consistently knock Hindu festivals on some pretext or the other. Yes, i do have a good four legged friend, a somewhat mixed-breed German Shepherd, but she doesn't seem to care much about crackers one way or the other. And just because bursting crackers seems to irritate Libtards, Commies and missionaries no end, i've decided to burst some this Diwali. Just a small way to say FU to them.

  16. And why these people are not bothered about the misery of workers engaged in the cracker industry ? Why they want them to become jobless? What happens to lakhs, crores already invested in this business? They are more worried about Loss of KaranJohar.

Honestly..who we are blaming here...it's anyways Hindus sermonising Hindus as usual...I was talking to my Muslim friends...he said why you are blaming us for your Hindu hypocrisy? he said Hindus are themselves ashamed of their customs and practices and shift blames on Muslims. honestly I did not have any answers on this?.
    I agree with every bit written in this article...but seriously Hindus by generations are weak and ashamed religion..

  20. Why these libtards are against these Hindu culturual icons becuase, as MC had pointe dout in some of his earlier articles, these cultural things prevent the wholesale soul harvesting of hindus. chrislamists have been practicing this for time immemorial and that is how they have converted one ethnic group after another, as MC had pointed out earlier. Even the Christmas was celebrated by many other ethnic groups as some other festival and that was ridiculed and made to stop and then it came back as the birth anniversary of christ.

  23. Hinduism is a open end Religion.we take/follow what is good in others and we change/modify our customs/practices to the changes in the civilisation. Adoptabality is our big asset as well as our weakness.We are no more practising Manu Sharma rituals. Our new generation has spread over all over the world.This new generation does not know why we celebrate festivals and the basic knowledge why these festival's are ooriginated. They think that whatever Developed/ Western nations practice is good and what we practise is bad.Its a problem of Mindset. We should think how to bring change in these people. Secondly in the name of Secular nation , Pampering of Minorities became a strategy to increase their vote Bank.This situation has brought a time where our Cultural values,Traditions and Practices are being questioned by these pseudo liberals. Let's make our Temples be not only a place of worship but also a place to fight against this "Intolerant "people. Let make and encourage every Hindu to attend the temple on Saturday as a practice where we should create Hindhu bhakt Samaj to protect our religion and to propagate the values behind the customs!Unity is the need of the hour.

  24. All government has a duty to say politically correct things. So Modi Sarkar sermonizing politically correct "pollution" reduction is understandable. It is not a mandatory requirement. Government just cannot publicly say that it is supporting any polluting activity.

    A significantly large percentage of the electricity is produced by coal burning. How much more coal is burned polluting environment because of the Christmas lighting decoration through out the world?

    In USA almost all houses are built with wood since the wood is better insulating material than concrete. To avoid fire the fire crackers are regulated not because of the noise level (or pollution).

  25. Funny, i've never heard these sermonisers preach about a pollution-free new year's day. At the stroke of 12 midnight there's this racket caused by crackers. What happens to the poor darling celebrity dogs then? Not too many days to go for 31 December. Should i wait expectantly for the celeb rants?

    ReplyDelete
  26. One thing I would like to correct is that Anushka Sharma has already left non veg foods. She no longer eats non veg foods but yes she always rants only during Diwali/Hindu Festivals. She didn't showed the same concern for animals or environment during Bakrid where lakhs of goats gets slaughtered in the name of religion or during Christmas/New Year Celebrations. Not to forget this celebs live 24/7 in AC Rooms which also harms our Ozone Layer.

  27. They want to take the fun out of Hindu festivals. Also alienate children, so that they grow up as non-practicing adults. No peep on how many trees are cut down or paper wasted on Halloween. Because they are "cool" festivals see.
