The debate over the wisdom of bursting crackers continues, today there was a another example as to why crackers are a menace. Goonj, an NGO involved in disaster relief across many states in India. It’s office in Delhi turned to Ashes allegedly by crackers. The ashes contained years of work and material brought together by their team.

Commenting on this incident, The Founder of Goonj said “Here I was asking you to spread the message against crackers and there a cracker did this to Goonj’s center in Delhi.

7 hours of un-manageable fire, 10 fire brigades till 2 am on Diwali night. 3000 sq.ft of area, tons of material, where we all had put in our days and nights turned into ash.

Nothing much to say, anger on this insane, menace, vulgarity called crackers. Will share more as we fight back but certainly one of the saddest moments for the team and lakhs of people who are a part of Goonj’s larger family.

Particularly sad as blankets to woolens, clothes to whatever is needed much more, in the days to come. Response on a few things from our Delhi office might be slow for the next couple of days as the team is fighting back with this huge loss of material, money and space.”
