No firecrackers for Dussehra celebrations at Red Fort to minimise air polution


NEW DELHI: The Lav Kush Ramlila Committee revealed that firecrackers will not be lit for Dusshera celebrations at the Red Fort on Tuesday.


The pyrotechnics will be missing when effigies of demon king Ravana, his son Meghnad and brother Kumbhkarana will be set afire at Delhi's famous Lav Kush Ramlila at Red Fort today.

As per the report, Ravana will be set afire but the noise of crackers will only be heard through speakers

This departure from tradition is the organisers' way of minimising air pollution.

As per the report, the height of the effigies has been reduced from 125 feet last year to 60 feet.

The Lav Kush Ramlila Committee is one of the oldest in the national capital.

It is known for featuring celebrities and politicians as key characters in the ten-day theatrical enactment of Hindu epic Ramayana.
