Happy Diwali - How to have a safe Diwali (New Delhi)

...."Anar and chakri are dangerous. Sometimes people, especially children, try to ignite the anar while holding it in the hand," Narayan said, adding that the first word of caution is to "never leave the children unattended during Diwali"............

..............The most common type of injuries include skin burns and eye injuries. Sometimes a finger might have to be amputated when a cracker goes off in the hand.....

................"The first thing to be done after any burn injury is to pour water over the burnt portion. If you receive burns on face or eyes, then splash plenty of cold water. The person should immediately be taken to the nearest hospital," Rohit Batra, dermatologist with Gangaram hospital, told IANS...............

My personal recommendation is that one should wear Polaroid glasses at night on Diwali to prevent any damage to the eyes. While driving, do not roll down the windows of your car to avoid a stray rocket finding you.

Have a good and safe Diwali.
