The firecrackers' noise lasted for more than 5 minutes. I managed to record it at its last part(about 24 seconds duration). My ears feel discomfort although I was sitting in my granduncle's house about 20 feet away and it also annoyed our conversation.
I supposed, it not only can cause 'temporary standard shift (TTS)' to my hearing but also can cause physical injury. I hope this 'hariraya' celebration will not end up with tragic otherwise
it will loss its meaning.
