Calamities are not in Humans control.
RIP the killed ones.
very sad news.everybody should pray for the dead and their families
The firework display should be banned in the country. It is just a wastage, just burning money. These mishaps usually occur due to lack of proper care in storing and handling explosive materials.
Oh My God
An avoidable tragedy.
Crackers should banned in India....
It could be sabotage or more likely cheap "Made in China" fireworks. India produce top class fire works mostly exported but within India they are unable to sell because Indian merchants are selling cheap Chinese fireworks. Government of India should ban all Chinese fireworks.
