    Diwali - India's festival of lights,

    This colourful pattern is called rangoli.

    Diwali to my mind is basically a giant nationwide form of house cleaning for a very esteemed VIP guest, a certain goddess of wealth. This huge operation spearheaded by the women of each household involves cleaning all aspects of the house and goes on to decorating all aspects of it and on the big day lighting it up with as many diyas [small earthen lamps] as humanly possible

      Greetings. As an American hippie (I say that proudly) I just have to say, what a beautiful and soulful culture you have. I was privileged to see Ravi Shankar in concert when I was 16. The artwork and colors are fantastic. I hope you don't mind, I will be celebrating Dinali from now on, in my own way. May this beautiful light spread to embrace us all. Bless you all, my brothers and sisters. terry
