Precautions:

Some people behave with carelessness on this occasion. It means that people are using iron wire which is very dangerous. The throats of people are cut with the iron wires on the roads and streets. Many precious lives of people have been waste because of this carelessness. We should celebrate the festival as festival. Government should take notice of this carelessness.
