The Match Stick

There is a small gap of time when you strike a match stick on a match box. The phosphor on the stick glows with yellow flares and then a beautiful light. I personally do not like to waste match sticks from a very young age.

I don’t remember the exact age i started to follow this but i had read a page or seen a documentary where in daily all these poor laborers were involved in making those match sticks with phosphor in their hands. Maybe the practice of making sticks is very different now with good safety methods, but few years ago rolling a match stick had it’s own symptoms. People would end up with breathing problems since continuous inhaling of phosphor while rolling was malicious to the lungs. Directly it would affect those poor people.

I myself thought by not wasting these match sticks, significantly i would be reducing the usage. I would contribute lesser to their apathy. Maybe somewhere i think it is for a generous cause. Those practices of rolling phosphor might still prevail and that is the reason when i light the lamp i thank them for making it.
