    Surely,firecrackers aren’t good in anyway.But about the fact that I have learned,I think that KIDS of all ages are involved in the manufacturing of firecrackers in factories which is termed as ‘CHILD LABOUR’ which is illegal as we all know.
    So this Diwali lets reduce the use of firecrackers to pay a tribute to all those little kids who are and right now making those hazardous crackers and don’t that they are playing with their own lives.This in turn is one of the effects of being illiterate.
