That time of the year is nearing at the fastest pace possible. The time when Air Pollution comes to haunt the residents of Delhi and the NCR region does not seem to be far away. So much so that the festival of lights only adds to the pollution woes of the national capital.
This time, the honourable Supreme Court has tried to come up with a solution to do its bit in curbing the pollution levels for at least some time and to some extent. The Supreme Court has dropped the Diwali bomb in its own way by imposing the sale of crackers in Delhi and the NCR region until October 31.
This was in view of trying to see at least one cracker free Diwali and monitoring the difference that it makes to the air quality levels during that time. After the decision of the ban came out, Twitter had a ball and there were several kinds of reactions were seen on the micro blogging site.
While some of them welcomed the move, there were others who ended up making this whole issue into a religious spat.
Check out what Twitterati had to say on this:
Can I just ask on cracker ban. Why only guts to do this for Hindu festivals? Banning goat sacrifice and Muharram bloodshed soon too?

Dear SC, Banning firecrackers wont clean the air. If u dare, crack down on the industrial and automobile wastes.#crackerban

If Lord RAM would've walked in Ayodhya amid smoke, noise & clutter, even he would've approved of #crackerban! Diwali is for light, not fire.
