The First Few Moments of Bemusement

It happens every year. You hear the sound, and you are confused. What is this? Why? To what occasion to I owe this disturbance? Is someone getting married? Did India win a match? Or did a tyre burst? Surely there has to be a rational explanation.

Then, in a few more seconds, realisation dawns upon you. It's that time of the year again. That's why people are bursting crackers. :)

Happy Diwali Everyone!
