Re: Do Indians not care about Diwali anymore?

There are many NRIs who hate Indian culture and want to be like Westerners in terms of reductionist outlooks.

It's possible. But I don't think I'm posting for the sake of Indians in India. I post to share with my friends and relatives; some are in India and some are in the US.

I agree. moreover , I think this is the way for them to connect with their folks and friends back in India ..

I somehow prefer calling or meeting in person ,whereever possible , the friends and family rather than this mass e-mailing,SMSing and FB pics posting that seems to be the epidemic it is currently .

True gujju will not have time to post diwali pics. He will be busy gambling during those days or travelling during this period. although, this year, people have travelled very less...
