Definition

An act of firing several fire crackers at a time. Mostly prevalent at the time of Diwali, or when the Indian Team wins a cricket match. Massive Aatish baazi is banned now in most of the states, due to the rising noise and air pollution caused by the screams (mostly curses) and farts of obnoxiously drunk people indulging in the act, while in action. Aatish baazi is also reported to cause wide noise and air pollution by itself.

Usage

Raju: Maa, itni shor kaha se aa rahi hai? (Mom, where are the noises coming from)
Maa: Beta! India match jeet gayi hai isiliye aatish baazi ho rahi hai. (India has won the cricket match and so people are having aatish baazi)
