When I was in undergrad we had a Diwali festival every year with dancing and comedy skits, good food, etc. I haven't thought about it since until I read this post, but great times!

Happy Diwali to you

In reply to: Happy Diwali to all of you!!!

Although it isn't tomorrow (yet) for me, I'll be celebrating it as well.

It's nice to see another Indian on this message board. We're going to a party (usually last all night) tomorrow. What are they doing in India right now? I can only imagine the amount of celebration.

Sorry m8, but I've removed your post.

Your Happy Diwali is well received, and your advice to wish any call center operators a happy new year is good advice, but you then spoilt it by linking to your own personal site.

My apologies, but that's not allowed in these forums.

Please contact me through my profile email if you want to discuss this.

Regards,

Mark

Yes I knew that the Hindu civilisation

In reply to: Hindu Calender...

was older than the western, but I didn't realise it was so much older. We seem to forget in the West that there are many civilisations older and wiser than we are.

A very interesting fact, that is.

Gone!

In reply to: Mod - can you clarrify the posting of websites?...

I'm really sorry Shalin but I've removed your post again. I explained in reply to your email.

Your post wasn't in reply to someone else, it wasn't relevant to any questions being asked. If you want to include your web site address in your bio in your profile, feel free to do so, and refer to that if necessary.

But not in posts unless it is relevant.

Does that mean we are having a BBQ?

In reply to: Happy Diwali to all of you!!!

Give me a steak... medium rare Wink

...

In reply to: Does that mean we are having a BBQ?

there are celebrations during Diwali, but I'd stay away from steak considering it's probably the ultimate "no-no" food in the Hindu diet.

But I'll play along - do you want your steak somewhat or completely marinated in extra-spicy-curry-etc.? Wink
