Bet you heard this in your childhood, as you reached out to light the first cracker or a 'Ground Chakra' on Diwali. This is one phrase that has been used by every generation with the same excitement as they heard it first.
With lights all around and smell of new clothes, the crackle of the box as you unwrap it and that obvious question "should I remove the white paper covering the fuse, fully or partially?"
That 'white paper' which heralds the festival of lights is what papermakers call "Fire Fuse Tissue". Made in ITC Paperboards unit Tribeni, the paper, as light as 18 or 19 grams per square meter, ensures controlled burning and prevents sudden flares. Soft, Pliable and outstanding fold retention properties make it the ideal choice for use in many fire cracker applications from the humble bijli to the soaring multi shot.
So this Diwali, spread the cheer and joy in a safe manner - "touch the tip and run..."
Wish you a safe and Happy Diwali
