Crackers, animal sacrifice & azaan on loudspeakers

Crackers, animal sacrifice & azaan on loudspeakers I have my own take on Diwali crackers, animal sacrifice & azaan on loudspeakers and I have my reasons. Tell me yours. Disclaimer: Trust me & thankfully, I’m a secular-headed person & I think straight (no pun intended this time😜 ). I am not inclined to either the right or the left wing.

Challenges I faced as a New Blogger.

Challenges I faced as a New Blogger.
