Wait, Adriaan. Are you an Indian? Because most of the Indians only celebrate this festival. Other countries don't even have clue about this festival.
Anyways, Happy Diwali to everyone; especially to my Indian buddies. smile.gif

No. tounge.gif

But I have a weird interest in 1970s Indian Bollywood films and other popular culture (and have friends of the Hindu religion)

Not weird considering that Indians constitute a good 2.7% of South Africa's population. Some of it was bound to rub off on you. ;p

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's not what the image represents.

The image in question is actually an overlay of different photos taken by NASA satellites over the years to highlight India's increasing population via night illumination. "The white lights were the only illumination visible before 1992. The blue lights appeared in 1992. The green lights in 1998. And the red lights appeared in 2003," explains a post by Robert Johnson on Business Insider. Many bloggers have pointed out that the image isn't what it claims to be, but many Internet users continue to fall for it.

Still, it's a good pic depicting which areas of India are densely populated and which aren't.

Diwali is tomorrow. At least for the Hindu jains and for GTA fans (last diwali, we had trailer 1, trailer 2 for this diwali).
Happy Diwali to all, I guess. smile.gif

I do not involve in fireworks since last five years for the same reason. Also, 800 rupees for a rocket? Woohoo, I'm not gonna burn money.

Its similar to 31st December. Last day of the Hindu calendar year. Also, the day is of religious importance.

Also, the Sivakasi accident this year is a strong reason to stay away.
