Don’t get too adventurous while burning fireworks. Always make sure that you light the crackers by using an incense stick and take it near to your firecracker and not the other way round. Lighters and matches are for cigarettes and not for burning fireworks, so never try to burn them suing anyone of these. Also, always have a keen eye on the placement of your fireworks as they should not be near to any sources of fire.
Remember you are not a Superhero!
Therefore always keep a decent distance while you are lighting a cracker and make sure to keep at least an arm’s distance from it. It should be convenient for you to light it and come back. If it doesn’t ignite at once, don’t go near to check it, just wait for the beautiful visual to happen. If you feel that it is taking time quite longer than usual just sprinkle water onto it and diffuse it. As you handle the diwali crackers in your hands, there are chances of toxic materials getting rubbed of. So always wash your hands after handling fireworks.
