Watch: Gas balloons explode during hawan ritual in Mysuru; internet says Agni Devta on roll
In a rare incident that took place at a religious event held in Karnataka, three people suffered injuries after a minor explosion caused by gas-filled balloons.
The shocking footage of the explosion shows the saints and supporters of the Mutt rushing towards the head seer as the balloons above him and the other guests catch fire. The saints and supporters suffered minor burns during the explosion and were rushed to the nearby hospital.
An eye-witness told news agency PTI that prior to releasing the balloons, a torch was brought by some sportsmen from Mysuru to the wrestling arena and the flames came in contact with the balloons which burst.

LOL!! When you are into mindless ancient sh*t, it's probably a good idea to stay away from the modern science sh*t. They don't belong together, kinda like RSS and modern India.

FACT: Helium-filled gas balloons do not catch fire and are not flammable. It is the hydrogen-filled balloons that catch fire. If you try to light up the helium-filled balloon, it will blast immediately but if you try to light up hydrogen-filled balloon there will be an explosion, exactly like what happened at the Suttur Mutt.
