We went to a few fireworks stores in Chennai, India and asked about the largest and longest crackers they had. What they had was "ten thousand wala" which is made by connecting 10,000 firecracker shells. There are no 20,000 walas, but you can make them by connecting two 10,000 walas. We weren't interested in that, so we bought the ten thousand wala for 80 dollars (5,000 rupees).
We rolled it out on a street in Chennai, Tamil Nadu and it came out to nearly 50 feet. This was on the day of Deepavali festival. A crowd gathered to see it and we fired it up. It lasted a little longer than 7 minutes, but it was a great sight to watch. This may be the fastest way to spend five thousand rupees in India! Anyway, we had a great Diwali in Chennai.
Thanks to free music from Teknoaxe, I have added the track "Martial arts on a mountain".
