Foreign firecrackers banned in Kolkata

This year say bye to the foreign crackers - more pertinently the Chinese crackers. In a clear directive from Kolkata police, those participating in the Baazi Bazars have been asked to avoid selling any foreign crackers. The logic - its sound decibels are much higher than those marked on the covers. Coming at a time when the central excise department has been campaigning widely for the banning of foreign crackers and amidst social network pleas and calls to go "desi" this Diwali to show solidarity with the Uri attack martyrs, the Kolkata police initiative is worth mentioning. Kolkata police sources maintained that worst offenders in this section were the Chinese rockets that went up in the sky but created noise well and above all defined norms.
