If you thought messing around with ‘sutli bomb’ and ‘laxmi bomb’ were exclusively Indian shenanigans, then think again. The Chinese are not far behind. What they miss out with Diwali, they make up on the Chinese New Year! Traditionally celebrating with firecrackers; they believe it wards off evil spirits.

However, where they are firecrackers, you could expect a splash of juvenile mischief! That is precisely what happened when a young boy in China decided to get creative with fireworks. He put them down a manhole!

Care to wager what happened next?
