I am not sure if I understood the context but I have not say no, hubby is not sagu-influenced.

Re: Do Indians not care about Diwali anymore?

Sagu influenced means UP/Bihar influence.. like being a student or grown up in those parts.. say allahabad, patna etc.

Hmm interesting then the fusion is misplaced perhaps a coincidence. Never mind.

Re: Do Indians not care about Diwali anymore?

That platform/uunjal/jhoola between the two velli kuttivilaku.. on which you have (assumption) lakshmi or ganesh or whatever god/idol for puja is typically north east influence.. i.e not as northeast as assam but up/bihar/orrisa it is NOT sambar variety.. dunno if pollution of art has spread as far south but that thing is typical of the zones I mentioned.

And which einstein incarnate who gave you the brilliant idea of keeping sparklers with that parupu tenga poodu.. a strange thing that!!

oh that platform...It was given to me by my mother-in-law when I got married and entered their home for the first time. Actually in our culture, my mom gives me a Ganesha made out of black stone before leaving the maternal home. But my mother in law took what my mom gave me and told me on her side its the mother-in-law who gives the Ganesha to me.
It was given to her by her mother-in-law. So thats how I have this. I am supposed to pass this on to my daughter-in-law, if I have one or to my daughter.

I only got that idea of sparklers and podi...nice no?

Re: Do Indians not care about Diwali anymore?

Looks nice that platform but how come it is not of sambar origin then?

Looks nice that podi but NEVER keep fireworks with food items EVER.

I have no idea why my mother-in-law had this platform thingy Gpel. I am not going to ask her either; I have a feeling she will get defensive even if I mention it.

All men think alike or what? my husband removed the fireworks off the table the moment he saw it. But really, I was being careful not to let it touch food items.
