The article speaks about the various types of crackers that are lit on the occasion of Deepawali in different parts of India.


The sellers of different types of crackers and zameen charkies work all through the year to sell the produce during the period of diwali.

Kept in Light.

Many people after buying the crackers to be lit on the day of Diwali keep them in sunlight so that when they will use them, they bring the light and colour required.

Zameen Charki.

Zameen charki is one of the popular crackers for the children which move round and round after being lighted.


Tubris and Anars are very famous for the children. They rise in the air and create beautiful colours once being lighted.


Tarabati is elementary type of crackers. In addition to lighting them they are used to light the other types of fatakas.


As Goddess Kali is also worshipped during Diwali, the fatakas which are red in colour are called Kali fatakas and are also lit on the day of Diwali.


There is a cracker called dodoma, which is liked a lot by children. It has two ends and once lit it makes sound on both sides.


Children like the baji called snakes. When a match stick or cracker is lit, the black snake becomes longer and longer.

Electric wires.

Electric wires are like by children. They are coiled and loose and make a yellow colour and are considered colourful sparklers.


There are different types of sparklers used by children which have different colours like green, red, yellow.


The rangmashals are equally bright like that of the sparklers. They dont have sound but are very bright and make the place look colourful.


Crackers, Deepawali, Lights
