    DONOT CALM DOWN, DONOT BE VIOLENT, DONOT BE JUST AS RACIAL EITHER, AND DONOT BE FOOLED. THE FACTS ARE CAROLINE IS A RACIST HAD IT BEEN WHITES CELEBRATING WITH FIREWORKS SHE WOULD NOT HAVE MADE SUCH STATEMENTS OR IF CAROLINE HERSELF LIKED FIREWORKS CAROLINE WOULD NOT REGARD CAROLINE IN THE WAY CAROLINE HAS REGARDED INDIANS, DONOT BE FOOLED CAROLINE SHOULD NOT BE A REPRESENTATIVE OF CIVILISATION IN ANY FORM AND SHOULD NOT REPRESENT FUTURE GENERATIONS IN OUR COUNTRY, CAROLINE IS UNKIND AND IMPURE, SELFISH, AND DEMORALISING, THERE ARE NO EXCUSES AND THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO READ THAT WHICH CAROLINE AS WROTE, EXCEPT FOR THE FACTS AS WE CAN READ IT IN CAROLINE’S WRITTEN STATEMENTS,CAROLINE IS RACIST AND AS INDIANS WE WILL STAND TOGETHER AND PROTECT EACH OTHER FROM THOSE THAT ARE SIMILAR OR LIKE CAROLINE.
    This is a mere indication for all races (Blacks, Indians, Coloureds ,Chinese and so on)accept for the (racist) whites, in South Africa to realise that we have to be awake, alert and enthusiastic to take on racists by their hands and nicely walk them out of our country.
    This is our country, of humans that will support the growth and unity of this nation the South African nation, you Caroline have obviously been grown by a group of racist humans that are awaiting revenge, and quite frankly you are one of them (the racist) group,
    This Country has these groups in all races not just White, we have lots of Indians that cannot stomach pig skinned chicken eyed things that think that they are humans and look nice or something.
    My oh My, Caroline, why don’t you put your filthy language to use on all government structures of the world that encourage the making of arms and ammunition that White people thought they could to use to kill other race groups to steal the wealth and land from them, worldwide by the way?.
    The white man that shot at a home of an Indian during the Deepawali festival is obviously not concerned about the safety of anybody accept his ego from the past and so are you, as those actions of shooting at innocent people are contradicting of noise and danger fireworks bring. That human, should not be in position of a fire arm as this is obviously used for destruction and killing, as opposed to fireworks which are joyous sound of excitement which are used worldwide to mark the happenings of world events, life and directional awareness for you to know where people are, that have happiness and joy, I guess this is what would get a racist white human really down and out. Happiness of the Indians on that day, and on every other day will remain and persevere for decades to eternity.
    It’s not the fireworks; Caroline probably thought that Indians should not be that important to have this privilege that marks the oldest form of civilisation, religion and technology.
    Hinduism is the oldest religion in history, and at the time on the return of Lord Rama through the dark thicket of the forest to his home, his people made the loud sounds with lights shooting in the air (today call fireworks) for him to sense his way home with his ears and vision. Every Indian that has done this on this day has Lord Rama seated in their hearts and residence, we do not need to be rulers and wealthy people, because having Lord Rama in our minds and hearts is all that matters to us. Those that have this do not require the blessing of all, good or bad and this includes you Caroline and all other racists that tried to hurt Indians in the past, present and, future.
    All, racist people have to do is to remember that we should be tolerant, and kind at all times. It’s no use fighting, it does not make sense. There is no point to feeling disgusting about anybody, it’s a waste of time, thinking capacity and that alone is dangerous were else fireworks are actually safe. It’s you own evil fireworks in your minds and hearts that should be stopped not the sound of happiness with all its beauty colour and splendour.
    Thank you and peace to all that welcome peace and happiness into their minds and then into their hearts,but first accept that you have no right to destroy the happiness of the Indian community Universally regarding their culture and their religion which is the oldest in history and the existence of mankind.
