Its diwali morning!!! The house is filled with the delicious aroma of sweets and the amazing spread of diwali lunch that was being prepared.
They hurriedly had their bath and and yelled, "come on, lets burst crackers!!."
They picked up the large assortment of crackers that included atom bombs, 100 walas, 1000 walas and many more. "Lets start with the smaller crackers" dad said.
For almost an hour they burst crackers and laugh and jump in joy. BANG BANG BANG....the place is filled with smoke and the street full of papers from the burst crackers.
"Lets burst the 10000 wala daddy...please..." the little one said.
One thing they did'nt know that they were being watched.
By a pair of scared beady black eyes from under the sofa on the verandah.. His tail between his legs. Shivering at every sound. "What are these sounds?" he wondered. He was petrified of them. It had been going on and on for a long time now. "I don't think I will go out anymore!!" he thinks.
They start to burst their 10000 wala with loud cheers and applause from neighbors and onlookers. The loud noise of the crackers drown the barks and whines of their one year old pet german sheperd.
A PLEA TO FELLOW HUMANS: pet dogs are not the only ones who need to be cared for. Stray dogs also need the same consideration. Let us try to celebrate a nice diwali and try to minimize loud crackers. If not able to stop it completely. Before turning vegetarian for the cause of prevention of animal cruelty, let us not burst crackers and help the animals right in front of our eyes. A small sacrifice for these poor creatures who we share our planet with.
