This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 43; the forty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "LIGHT"
"Flickering lights all around. It has come it seems, Diwali has come.
Day of lights, noise and smoke. Lights are terrifying. They burned my friend last year.
I will move away from these lights and find my solace in darkness, my abode.

Oh no, why are they coming here?"

An agonising wail engulfed the locality.

 (From the canine who never enjoyed diwali)

*Happy Diwali
*Please be kind to animals

  1. And a yet another perspective on why we should have a cleaner and safer noise free diwali.. :)

  2. Fear can definitely dampen the celebrations, especially if something unsafe has happened in the past.

    Agree with Sid, a safe and noise free Diwali would be the best :)

  3. Short and crisp...! Good take !!

  4. Very sensitive take on the prompt!!! Noise pollution, air pollution...the side-effects of Diwali celebrations. Hopefully, the concept of Green Diwali spreads its footsteps a lit faster.

  5. Short and crisp...! good one!

  6. I beautiful it will be if the crackers are handled responsibly.
    But we Indians live half of our life showing off, I am not afraid...and do stupid things.

    Short and precise. Nice. All the best for BATOM

  7. such things reduces the charm of a festival, good to spread that message
