Definition

Possibly the biggest manufacturer of Diwali firecrackers in India. Popular varieties include, but are not limited to 100wala, atom bomb, ground chakkars, flower pots, rockets, electric sparklers, skyshot. Also, makers obviously never intended to market the said crackers in other English-speaking countries. For best results, Cock brand items should be properly warmed up under the bright sun for at least 4-5 hours prior to usage.

Usage

Ram: This is the best diwali ever. I love Cock bombs.
Shyam: Me too, although my favorite is the Cock garland cracker.
