This Diwali, buy a bin Laden bomb!

Anand Mohan Sahay in Patna | November 08, 2004 12:32 IST

Want to buy the 'bin Laden bomb'? Just visit any cracker market in Bihar.

With just days to go before Diwali, shopkeepers in the state are selling a bomb named after the Al Qaeda chief.

"Though the bin Laden bomb costs Rs 1,000 per packet, it is in high demand," Manohar Singh, a shopkeeper in Patna, says.

Another retailer, Sanjit, says the bomb is very popular among the customers. "Whether one buy it or not, everyone wants to know about it."

Interestingly, there are crackers available in the name of US President George Bush and Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib as well.
