Lahore Basant Kites
I tend to be fairly conservative in my use of language. There are very few things that bothers me as much as the use of inappropriate language. Yet, I do not know what other title I could give to the two videos below.

What these people are doing is not just stupid and unsafe, it should be criminal because they are putting their entire neighborhoods in danger. Look at just how jam-packed this neighborhood is and imagine the possibilities of calamity.

Also, how old is that child (in the first video) who is allowed to fill his mouth with kerosene and through it into a flame of fire? Now look at the second video; is he trying to put the entire mohalla on fire or only trying to burn those people sitting on the road?

As I have said before, I hope this talk of banning Basant goes away. But I hope this type of behavior is also dealt with, and strictly. This demonstrates a callous disregard for the safety of others. Fun-starved or not, no one should be allowed to jeapordize the life and limb of others.
