Happy Diwali

Regardless of the mythological explanation one prefers,

what the festival of lights really stands for today

is a reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to friendship

and goodwill, and a religiously sanctioned celebration

of the simple — and some not so simple joys of life.

Happy Diwali 2005

On the occassion of Diwali, News Views and Analysis wishes all its readers a happy and joyful Diwali and New Year.

Every year since I was a kid in 7th standard, I send out a greeting card to friends and family, the old fashioned way. Since joining architecture school in 1992, I design my own cards. This is the card that went out this year. If you would like to receive an electronic one next year onwards, please leave your email ID in the comments section.
