    Sivakasi Fireworks strikes historic deal with Pak army; Hatf-III will be available this Diwali

    This year’s Diwali may turn out to be very special for cracker bursting enthusiasts for they can look forward to firing a very special rocket. We are talking of none other than the Ghaznavi–I of the Hatf-III series, a short range ballistic missile (SRBM) with a range of 290 km which was test-fired by Pakistan yesterday.

    India’s fireworks industry, based in the South Indian town of Sivakasi, has struck a historic deal with the Pakistani army to manufacture the Pakistani SRBM on a commercial scale to cater to the burgeoning domestic demand for patake during the festival of lights. Though the details of the agreement have not been made public, the Pakistan army will be paid a “hefty” sum by Sri Parasaksthi Firworks, a leading fireworks manufacturer, for rights to assemble the missile under the brand name ‘Gayle DLF Maximum’ and sell it through exclusive retail outlets, informed Mr Shanmugam Nadar, president of the Sivakasi Pyrotechnics Guild.

    “Of late, well heeled customers have been demanding more bang for the buck, yaar. They are getting bored with sparklers, chakris, flower-pots or the cheap Chinese imports that promise a lot but under-deliver. That’s when we hit upon the idea of offering them the Hatf-III. With a life of 25 minutes in the sky and a decent trajectory, it is full paisa vasool for discerning shoppers,” added Mr Shakul Chadha, a Delhi based wholesaler.

    The BCCI too has jumped onto the bandwagon by announcing a “DLF maximum vs Hatf-III” tournament. Royal Challengers Bangalore’s explosive opener Chris Gayle has already confirmed his participation, as has India’s only triple centurion, Virender Sehwag. “Hatf-III? Ha!Wtf ?” (sic), tweeted Gayle, to which RCB team-mate AB De Villiers replied, “Bro you competing with that?! You’ll win even blindfolded! Lemme take part as well!” (sic). BCCI Vice-president and IPL Commissioner Rajiv Shukla spoke to the media, saying “Yes, we have kepitalized on the esituation and cricketers hitting esixers ..esorry ..DLF Meximums would make a great esport!”. (sic)
    However, the deal has triggered criticism on either side of the border. “I’m all for raining missiles on India but not in this manner, and that too to facilitate the celebration of a pagan festival,” screamed Professor deranged terrorist Hafiz Saeed. However, he reluctantly gave his nod to the agreement after the Pakistani establishment promised him a share of the profits to be ploughed back into the JuD’s charitable and not so charitable activities.

    Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia too has critiqued the deal on economic grounds. “I’m all for fostering trade ties with Pakistan to usher in sustainable peace in the sub-continent. And I readily admit to Pakistan’s comparative advantage in the terrorism industry as is evident from their surging exports of terrorism services to the rest of the world. But in this particular case, wouldn’t it be far cheaper to directly import the missile..er..cracker from China or North Korea rather than sourcing it from Pakistan?” wondered Monty, always alert to bad economic policies.

    Wrong. It should have been Shivakasi who should be demanding royalty from Pakis for stealing their rocket designs.
