Like your yearly sales bonanza, this is the festive offer time for the good heavens! Across all religion and regions in India this is the season of the gods.

Last week was Ganeshotsav and Mumbai knows how to celebrate it in style! Most Hindus consider it auspicious to begin any new activity with Lord Ganesh and hence this festival officially flags off many more celebrations. Soon there will be the harvest festivals Navratri, then Dussehra, Diwali, Makar Sankranti, and after a brief intermission start several regional spring fesitivities like Pongal, Vishu, Baisakhi, Ugadi, Gudi Padwa, Holi and others. With so many distractions, no wonder Indians can’t do anythng straight. Not just Hindus, Jains had their eight day long Paryushan and related celebrations (introspection?) which ended last week. Pateti and Eid was celebrated about a month ago. I guess all the gods like to be pleased in this coming good weather.
