Happy Diwali! May You Rot In Peace!

Categories Humour, Wierd

Ahhh…It is that time of the year again. The amusingly cold weather, the smell of burnt gunpowder in the air, the heebie-jeebies of your parents transferred to you while lighting that extremely dangerous bomb and ofcourse the sweets. So many goddamn sweets! That, my friends, is Diwali. Wrapped up in 35 words. But there is so much more to it than only crackers and sweets.

There is family for the social bee,
there is food for the foodie,
there are gifts for the greedy
and love for the needy.

It is tacky, I know. Thanks for pointing it out anyway.

Happy Diwali

And that’s not where it ends. That is where it begins. A hectic day for basically every soul in every Indian household and a lovely night for most (read women don’t get to enjoy that much). While the shopkeepers make enough to buy a couple of gold bricks, the average guy is hit hard. Wow, I am diverting from the topic. The topic? What is the topic? BAH. Nevermind. This post is done. Happy whatever.

PS: The auspicious timings for pooja on 26th October 2011 for Diwali 2011 are from 6:03pm to 07:58pm in stable Ascendant (Taurus sign).

  1. Well Belated Happy Diwali! Nice to hear from you. We also celebrate Diwali but Don't burn crackers. We just light candles and exchange gifts.

  2. A little bit late.But i think its better to congratulate .This year also celebrated diwali outside India.I live in a country where there are very few indians and every year the few indians who live here celebrate diwali with staff of Indian embassy.Diwali and Holi are the two times when I miss India the most

  3. Hi – how does some one contact you? I am visiting town and have a few questions on Vidyamandir. Would like to speak with you if possible about your experience. thanks Arjun
