Re: Do Indians not care about Diwali anymore?

Not fast enuf if you ask me..

My daughter is devil incarnate. If she comes home with a wide smile, I am almost certain that ain't a smile but an idiotic grin after doing something for which I am going to be in trouble. She does it almost daily!! and I am at my wits end trying to stop new ideas from germinating in her brain but alas.. so far.. results zero.. and she is ably assited by her assistant my son, who is very ingenious at all things wrong.

I wonder if my genes have something to do with it.

Re: Do Indians not care about Diwali anymore?

Dunno why, but I loved loud explosions and that was what made me do it.. now I hate sound of any sort.. trust me I have once gone without speaking a word for 2 years at a stretch. Found no need to..

You just were being very naughty; you were never caught?

There was once I had gone 3 weeks without saying a word but that's my maximum. 2 years...that's a LONG time.

Oh I did get caught off and on.. sometimes the plans backfired you see..

As for silence even now, there are times when I go without any interaction by way or words or virtual or anything for weeks. All it needs is an idea or something for me dig my thoughts into.. sometimes my sis wonders if I have been hurt or if I am angry (children are used to it and they know I will snap out or they know how to make me snap out).

Re: Do Indians not care about Diwali anymore?

Sagu is powdered root (dried in sun first boiled I think but not sure).. root like sweet potato or something of that variety. It is sort of brownish red and folks from UP/BIHAR/ORRISA/MP use it for various sweets and as "vrath" dish a. la. sabodana khichidi and things like that.
