Deepavali draws people together. However, like every coin has two sides, this festival too has two aspects. Apart from the excitement quotient the festival brings, the deafening noise of firecrackers has definitely become a cause for concern.

While any indulgence is addictive, it is equally imperative to be considerate towards others. Keeping this in view, some plan to celebrate the festival in a subdued fashion.diwali_cautions

Consultant ophthalmic surgeon R. Ahi Krishna says he would always discourage his children from bursting crackers.

“There are many ways to celebrate the festival of lights. You can invite guests and throw a surprise party, organise theme-based games to entertain family members, spend special moments with friends, and so on and so forth. When I meet my friends, I make sure they join hands to celebrate the festival minus the noise,” the doctor explains.

Eye care

Eye specialists say firecrackers are liberally loaded with sulphur and potassium nitrate that leave an impact on our naked eye, causing minor burns to vision loss.

Ophthalmologist A.V.N. Chetty says, “Every year, we get more complaints during the festival season. It is important to guard the eyes with protective glasses, preferably transparent ones, while bursting crackers. Toxic dust present in the crackers causes corneal and eyelid burns and, in some cases, also leads to permanent vision loss.”

Skin allergies

Smoke from fireworks induces a number of allergies and skin rashes.

Skin specialist B. Narasimha Rao suggests avoiding self-medication. “Direct contact with chemicals present in the fireworks triggers severe allergies among children. They should not be allowed to make crackers experimenting with their own theory. For any injuries, consult a doctor right away,” he asserts.
