    My god, I just saw on the news that there was a fire cracker store in Delhi that caught fire and all the fire crackers in the store exploded. Five people died in this accident. Thats so sad.

    Wow, that's horrible. To be brutally honest though, you've got to have a bit of a deathwish to work in a firework store - that's like being the guy who puts the triggers on pistols.

    Just to give an idea of scale, a few years ago, i read that the approximate amount of personal fireworks (ie, the stuff purchased and exploded by average joes and not the purchase the government/organisations make to do displays) for Diwali is around half a million tonnes of explosives.
    Thats a pretty insane number.

    Well I blew up fire crackers till 1 in the morning and it's 4:46 am right now, and I'm still awake(I hate Jet Lag) Can't wait till tonight when the real fun starts. Who else is going to blow up a lot of crackers tonight?

    Well the stores here are not just for fireworks. Any general store usually starts to sell fireworks during this time of the year because it will generate a lot of sales for them(There is a lot of money made selling fireworks during this week, and I mean LOTS of money). It's not like people start working for just a firework store you know. Like this store at the local market sells books and stuff for school usually, but when it's time for Diwali or Holi or Independence day, they sell whats needed to celebrate those holidays. So if you work there to sell books, you will eventually end up selling fireworks.

    Happy Diwali every one! Best wishes to your family and you (if you do celebrate it). In any case even if you don't, do get hold of an Indian friend and savour some sweets.

    Happy Diwali all. Largest Diwali festiwal () outside of India is just 20 miles from here,
    Or something.
