A lit idea
With climate change becoming a lived reality, pollution-inducing crackers are a no-no. But if you’d like to relive the nostalgia of buying fireworks, then sustainable stationery brand 21Fools offers beej patakhas. Made to look exactly like chakris, flower pots, sutli bombs and rockets, the sustainable patakhas are packed with seeds of different kinds, such as onions, coriander and bhindi, among others. The crackers have to be soaked in water and then planted in soil, not burnt. They’re hand-made by 100 rural women artisans and farmers from Chhindwara and Sanganer.
