Did you ever imagine watching brilliant exhibit of fireworks lighting up the sky minus the thunderous exploding sounds? Well, the Italian town of Collecchio not only imagined it but even passed a law stating all firework displays must be quiet.
While quiet fireworks are not a new phenomenon in Europe and are sometimes used around residential areas, it’s the first time that a town has made them mandatory by law. By doing so they hope to bring relief to pets, wildlife as well as children.

Loud fireworks spell doom for animals. They cause extreme anxiety in pets and are also a reason for dogs running away from homes in a state of confusion and panic. Besides pets, wild animals too are susceptible to the damaging effects of fireworks. The loud explosions put them in a state of frenzy, leading to disorientation and road fatalities.
The silent fireworks use an eclectic array of colours and carefully choreographed sequences to create stunning visual effects in the sky. So pet parents in Collecchio can now enjoy a visual treat with their furry babies without all the fear and stress associated with traditional fireworks.

Wouldn’t it be a great idea to introduce something similar in India too? Our pets and the millions of strays would certainly feel blessed! Do share your views on this new technology in the comments section.
