    Fireworks/crackers etc., should only be used with adult supervision, as its dangerous. In any case its noise & environmental pollution, besides being an utter waste of money

    Using fire crackers should be ban. It is dangerous, harm for environment and worst of money.

    This is culture and arrogance of Sri Lankan society today. The child died due to ignorant behaviour. Look at Wesak day celebrations, where can you find a dansala that is feeding only beggars or needy or poorest of the poor? The dansalas are filled wih people who can afford at least a pound of bread. The roads are filled with arrogant boys cat calling and misbehaving on the roads. Is this what buddha preached?

    1. Fire Crackers and similar dangerous celebrations shall be BANNED immediately.
    2. Religious celebrations such as New Year, Wesak , Christmas , Meeladunnabi , Eids, Thai Pongal , Maha Siva Rathri etc with a more meaningful manner avoiding funfare and showy nature., without the slightest inconvenience to the day to day activities of General Public by all means.
