    I have read about this.
    I can really appreciate the Hindus. They didnt build their empire from fear. Instead, they built it upon liberty and individuality.
    Its awesome.

    I doubt there is a single Hindu on these boards. I sure haven't ran across any.

    I'm married to one. Diwali, while a holiday is not as important as the various Pujas which celebrate various incarnations of the Hindu pantheon.

    For my wife's family, its Durga Puja, which is right around now,

    I'll pass the word to JoeyB Dolezal. He'll likely be in here claiming to be one lickity-split
