    Agree. While some are accidents, there are intentional incidents too. Some insane person in our neighborhood has enjoyed 'miserable joy' by throwing lit cracker into our letter boxes...!

    It is high time the Government of Sri Lanka banned fire works. It is nothing but a menacing experience to both little infants and animals.

    This is pathetic, its about time regulations are put forth against the inhuman usage of fire crackers.

    This is due the lack of standards in Sri Lanka. Even the normal fire crackers are dangerous and too noisy. These should be banned and standards followed up with conformance testing need to be introduced.
