As a young girl, I remember excitedly skipping to the fireworks shop to stock up on patakas. Fuljaris, anaars, chakadis – they all made it into my shopping bag. Of course, I don’t burst crackers anymore, what with rising smoke and noise pollution levels and the child labour involved in making said firecrackers.

But I still get nostalgic about the riotous Diwalis of my teens, especially when I see all that colourful packaging. If you ask me, it’s developed into an art form of its own. Here’s why:
