    Was surprised to see this title on your feed.

    Happy to know that you’re aware of Indian festivals, I think your Indian neighbor next door sent across some sweets and wishes!

    And then the feast the next morning.

    I would suspect that his Indian Collegues at Google I think Google has down a special logo for Diwali in the past.

    It was a rainy night for it in the UK so we didnt se many fireworks though round my way the fireworks on the sikh Gurus birthday are even louder

  17. Good Matt, Wishes for you too…

    We enjoyed the fest…. Glad that you had good Indian food…

    Quick follow up on the Google graph results for stock symbols that they haven’t fixed yet. It starts out in sync in the morning, but stretches results a half hour into the future by the end of the day. I think the problem is just that the graph is labled to run from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM, but the stock market closes at 4:00!


  19. Hi Matt,

    Happy Diwali to you too.

    Indian Food really is good. I hope everyone had a great Diwali and enjoyed some great food.

    A happy Diwali to all people.

    Thank You Matt,

  20. Hey Matt!

    Happy Diwali to you too 🙂

    Great to know that you are aware of Indian festivals.


  21. shamess, I’ve seen a lot of people in very nice new clothes too. 🙂

    Elan, sure. I had a couple samosas (mmm). aloo baigan, a little bit of korma, and some chicken tikka masala. Apologies if that I got any of that wrong–I’m a Kentucky boy. In the town where I grew up, the most exotic food we had at the time was a single Mexican restaurant.

    Elan, I think I went to my first Diwali festival in the early 90s in college. I was taking a comparative religion class and that’s what prompted me to find out more.

  22. Anyone see the Diwali episode of the “The Office?” A classic.

  23. Happy Diwali to you…. glad you see this at your blog 🙂

  24. Belated – Happy Diwali to you too! So what all dishes did you try ? I guess if you ate at some Indian friend of yours..then most likely the dish would have been Aloo – poori:)

  25. Dave (Original)

    Had to Google that one 🙂 For anyone else as ignorant as me


  26. Well, now that’s a surprise when your post came up on GReader. And yes, you’ve spelled them all right in your post and the comment above. Hope you’ve not burned your mouth with spicy Indian food 😛

    Belated happy Divali.

  27. Oh my goodness. I went and got a thirsty two ouncer and it was great. Then I had all you can eat Indian Buffet here in the Marina del Rey mall off of Mindanao. Oh boy it was good.

  28. Thanks Matt, Happy deepawali to you as well. We call it tihar here in Nepal.

    Once again Happy tihar and thanks for your wishes.

  29. Thanks Matt and same to you. That is what’s great about living in Singapore, we get to experience a variety of different cultures and celebrations. Hope you can come over to visit sometime.

  30. David, it’s a pitty the whole of Singapore is not as cheap as Little India. Great City though, Singapore, been there many times.

  31. Happy Diwali to you Matt 🙂

    But you know Diwali is very sacred indian festival. People pray (puja) lady goddes “lakhsmi” in the night of diwali.
    “chicken tikka masala ” is not allowed in any of puja festival in indian culture.

  39. Matt,

    Belated Happy Diwali to you too. I read your blog off & on, but commenting for the first time. Couldn’t resist for a Diwlai post!

    It is refreshing to see that Diwali has an international appeal.
    We had a grand diwali in UK – lots of fire works and lighting of lamps and prayers for health and wealth.


  40. Happy Diwali,

    Specially in diwali we don’t take non-veg food. we pray Laxmi for more wealth.
