≈ IN THE LINE OF FIRE ≈

This shot was taken on 2nd October at same spot where effigy of Ravana is burnt.Title of this shot came to my mind by 2 reasons.First the boy who triggered this cracker could hardly save his body from bursting cracker as he was the in the line of fire....second reason was the book of Pakistan President Parvez Musharaf who launched his book In the Line of Fire...is in the middle of controversies right from the begining.Now a days authors are just making sensation in media prior to launch to sell their book.Later they say we want to review some of the facts written in the book....shameful act....What do U say ?

    Ouch! Reminds me of some people setting off fireworks in a large undergound space and being surprised when one of them hit the ceiling and went into the crowd.

    Fantastic shot of an instantaneous happening. I loved your story about the festival you are celebrating - Dussehra, also called Vijayadashmi. We don't have very complicated festivals like this one. The only things we celebrate are Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. The rest of our holidays are days to commemorate our country or it's people... such as Canada Day!. Armistice Day.. remembering veteran's and the contribution they made to giving us peace. Labour Day - Celebrating the worker. Some of us celebrate some old saints. We also celebrate some very old saints day, such as the irish catholic saint - Patrick.
