Hi Nalini!

What means "Diwali"? Is this a Festival in NZ?

I wish you a great weekend and a wonderful Festival of Lights.

Hi Nalini, Shubh Divali to you and yours. Divali is winding up down here in Trinidad...the wind wreaked havoc on those little deeyas (earthen lamps). I'm capping off the day by reading Angels's Blood...great read!

P.S Cora, Divali is a religious festival celebrating light over darkness, the Hindu Goddess Mother Lakshmi(and much more!). It is celebrated the world over by Hindus.
