All my life I have seen rockets embellishing the night sky during a festival. But the following observation and the subsequent realization happened for the first time during the recent Ganesh Chaturthi.

A guy placed a rocket inside a glass bottle and lit the tiny tail branching out from its chest. A moment later the rocket scooted high up in the air where it expressed itself via a delightful explosion.

Even a rocket remains bottled, to start with, before the necessary fire triggers its journey high up in the sky where it realizes it’s true and irrevocable potential.
