Yesterday it was biggest festival for Hindus; the festival of lights; win of good or evil. What we did was nowhere near to what we would have done while in India. We missed the fervor of festivity in this place primarily because we are in an arabic country which has different cultures in place. None the less Al Kifaf (the building we stay in) has lots of Indian families and fortunate for us we all share similar passion and family age groups…we did have some partying. One thing emerges very strongly “our country is finally ours”.
