The word crackers are so expensive in its context and politician. It could be that little bit of sound and Spark that greets you when you fire the Toy Gun with the role cape loaded. It could also be the massive extravaganza of Aerial Fireworks that can be seen in its fullest Glory from miles away!
Each cracker has its own characteristic that makes it very very special! Let us start with one of the most simple yet the most beautiful - the sparklers.
The Sparklers, also referred to as the electric sparkles, or the SuruSuruVatthi, literally meaning ‘the ignited one that makes a crackling sound’ is surely an eggless favourite. This is loved by little kids food might be allergic to the big bursting crackers, and might not feel that close to the Grand and glorious chakkars and fountains.
When Diwali is all about lights, Please sparklers definitely had a little bit of appeal to the festivities of Diwali. These sparkles also leave a trail of lights when spun around, leaving the trail of happiness in the children who play with it. There are also colour variants of the Spotless and even multicolor sparklers that produce that was of a sound and that Shine and shimmer of light.
The Fountain, or the flower pot, or the busvanam, or however you may call it locally, this particular Firework definitely has a Grace that no other firework has! Though the lights and the whoosh of the sound barely last for a minute, the joy it brings is definitely worth lasting a lifetime!
The greatness of the sparkler is generally measured in terms of the height to which it spews its Golden Sparks. Just like the sparklers, even the fountains have a lot of options when it comes to colours, sizes, and the patterns as well! While the mountains might not give that personal feeling to the cracker, it definitely gives a better sense of joy!
The Ground Chakkars:
The sparklers are handheld, and the mountains are skybound. To make a bit of a difference to this list, the Chakkar is something that stays confined to the floor but still manages to entertain every person who is around.
I have the chakkars spin, they not only throw out a Radiance that is somewhere between bright and gloomy but also makes a whirring sound that adds to the awesomeness of this display of exquisite Firework. The Ground Chakkar is also referred to as the Sangu Chakram in Tamil.
The trio of sparklers, fountains and chakkar make the triumvirate of the Fireworks that children generally play with.
Although we are done with the list of Fireworks the children play with, we are not yet done with the list of Fireworks that children enjoy! The sound of a single cracker is enough to invoke a lot of happiness. Imagine a flurry of crackers in succession going on and on and on for a considerable amount of time! This is what the walas are about. These garland of crackers come in packages of numbers as little as 25 to as large as 10000 or 20000! Depending on the intensity of the celebration, and the affordability, a lot of people make these walas an integral part of their celebrations during Diwali or any marriage, or even political engagements.
The Fireworks might be of different kinds. The crackers might be of different intensities. However, the quotient of celebration that goes along with these sparkles, fountains, chakkars and bursting crackers remains all the same. The only thing that keeps growing is the happiness and the joy of people who are engaged in such a celebration mode with these crackers!
