Rab Ne Bana De Jodi & Shah Rukh Khan

Eight years of waiting is over. SRK & Aditya chopra combination has always created havoc in boxoffice. In 1996,they combined together for the first time in DDLJ and rest is history. DDLJ is one of the landmark of Indian film history. Next there was MOHABATTEIN in 2000.It was a blockblaster again. There was a long gap.In 2007 ,came CHAK DE . It was an Adi-SRK combination( though not directed by Adi himself).CHAK DE was not only a smash hit,butit was a classic movie also.After OSO in 2007,(which made more than 100 crores of business) SRK is appearing on screen after a gap of one year. So there is a HUGE expections regarding RAB NE BANA DE JODI & SHAH RUKH>
What could be the key points of this film?

* Directional magic of ADI.

* Foottapping music by SALIM SULEIMAN (already a musical hit)

* Fresh face ANUSKYA.In OSO,SRK brought DEEPIKA into limelight. This time, is it ANUSKYA?

* One and only SRK.He has a double role in this film. In one role,SRK has an AMOL PALEKER look- a bit shabby, specs, moustache. Another role has SHAH RUKH at his flamboynt best.

The bottomline: RAB NE BANA DE JODI & SHAH RUKH is going to be a BLOCKBUSTER. You may bet.

Colorodao Road Conditions, Terrible Car Crash Killed Seven Canadians, a shocking story!

Seven Canadians killed in fiery Colorado car crash identified. Three of the victims were only 16, 3 and 21 months old. Relatives cite driver fatigue

The Colorado State Patrol released the names of seven Canadians killed in this one-vehicle crash Thanksgiving Day. The names were released to the Canadian Press at 8:00pm Friday night.

The State Patrol said the Larimer County Coroner identified the occupants killed in the crash as Alberta, Canada residents:

* Jacob Rempel Sr., 42 of Vauxhall;
* Susana Rempel, 40 of Vauxhall;
* Jacob Rempel Jr., 16 of Vauxhall;
* Susana Rempel, 30 of Willingdom;
* Johan Rempel, 3, of Willingdom;
* Heinrich Rempel, 21 months of Willingdom
* Joseph Dick, 33, of Taber

All seven of the victims pronounced dead at the scene.

The two families were on their way to Alberta from Mexico, "driving day and night" to get back for medical appointments, says a relative. Their Chevy Suburban plunged off an overpass and sailed about 15 metres before it hit a concrete embankment and burst into flames.
Colorado State Patrol Trooper Gilbert Mares said the vehicle was northbound on Interstate 25 when it suddenly veered off to the left side of the road and traveled along the median until the median ended at the Colorado 60 overpass.

The SUV then became airborne, sailed 40 to 50 feet, crashed into a concrete barrier and burst into flames.

RIP for those seven people.

The Christmas List, Barack Obama's Holiday Wish List?

President-elect Barack Obama to Americans: Shop 'til you drop...almost.

"What we don't want to do is get caught up in a spiral where people pull back from the economy, businesses then pull back, jobs are reduced and we get into a downward spiral," Obama said Wednesday, his third straight day of giving the nation an economic pep talk.

"People should understand that help is on the way," the soon-to-be-President reassured. "As they think about this Thanksgiving shopping weekend and as they think about the Christmas season that's coming up, I hope that everybody understands that we are going to get through these difficult times."

Obama said his family would be breaking out the greenbacks on Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, to give the economy a boost.

"We are gonna do some Christmas shopping," he said. His daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, have sent their wish list to Santa, he said, "but we may do some extra shopping as well.

Merry christmas

macy s thanksgiving day parade 2008 by marching bands, floats, and falloons

Accompanied by marching bands, floats, and falloons (a term that the Macy’s Parade Studio coined for a float with a balloon character on it) Delta will proudly fly through the streets of New York City tomorrow as the official airline sponsor of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Tune in to see us on the Statue of Liberty float during NBC’s telecast around 11:20 a.m.

For our friends in New York City, the parade will start on 77th St and proceed down Central Park West to Columbus Circle, then down Broadway to Macy’s at 34th St, finishing on 7th Ave (see map here). I’ve heard the best spots to watch are at Columbus Circle and Times Square, or at Central Park West, between 66th and 77th Streets.

Three Headed Dog, Kerberos, Cerberus Capital Management, LLC acts as 3 headed dog

Cerberus (Kerberos) was described as a three-headed dog with a serpent's tail, a mane of snakes, and a lion's claws. He was designated to prevent ghosts of the dead from leaving the underworld. The 3 headed dog guards the gates of the underworld in greek mythology.

According to CSIRO scientist Dr Wenju Cai three-headed dog savaging Australia's climate. we don't know that It's just rumor or true matter.

But actually the scene is something different.Makes you wonder if the auto-industry is the three headed dog that guards the gate of a depression. Cerberus Capital Management owns 80% of Chrysler and 51% of GMAC. See more about their role in the economy and a video below.

Cerberus has said they will take no money in profits from Chrysler if the government bails out the company. They also had in mind for the government to take an ownership interest. Now congress has asked them to come up with a better plan and bring it back. It is apparent that they will have to have convincing proof that they will not profit from the bailout. They will have to bring some plan of “accountability” in Speaker Pelosi’s words.

So who is Cerberus Capital Management, LLC? The company was founded by Stephen Feinberg and Bill Richter, now senior managing directors. But get this, guess who is an executive? Dan Quayle. Yes, the very Dan Quayle who has been brought up in this election as a comparison to Sarah Palin. I know some of you out there are saying, ‘no wonder Chrysler is crap.’ Well John Snow, former Treasury Secretary under the current Bush is also an executive.

In another twist, GMAC announced yesterday that it is applying to be a bank holding company. They are probably trying to get a piece of the bailout that has mainly helped financial institutions. The problem is that under current federal law, non-banking companies cannot own more than 25% of such a holding company. As mentioned above, Cerberus owns 51% and General Motors owns 49%. Cerberus executives are apparently still optimistic that this could go through. Plans are in the work to make it happen.

Thanksgiving day is on 27th November 2008. Share these beautiful thanksgiving poems with your family and friends for thanksgiving day.


Turkey in the barnyard, what does he say?
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble all day.
Turkey on the table, what do I say?
Yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy all day.
Turkey in my tummy, what do I say?
I ate too much on Thanksgiving Day!


Thanksgiving Day will soon be here
It comes around but once a year
If I could only have my way,
We'd have Thanksgiving every day.


T is for the trust the pilgrims had so many years ago
H is for the harvest the settlers learnt to grow
A is for America, the land in which we live
N is for nature and beauty which she gives
K is for kindness, gentle words, thoughtful deeds
S is for smiles, the sunshine everyone needs
G is for gratitude... our blessings big and small
I is for ideas, letting wisdom grow tall
V is for voices, singing, laughing, always caring
I is for Indians, who taught them about sharing
N is for neighbors, across the street, over the sea
G is for giving of myself to make a better me


Week before Thanksgiving,
I limp around real strange.
Huddle in the corner,
As though I have the mange.
All the other turkeys,
Just gobble, gobble on.
I'm silent, and I act
As if my gobbler's gone. Everyone is thankful
On Thanksgiving Day.
Friday it's forgotten.
You all go on your way.
I know what thankful is
So listen when I say.
"It's great to be a turkey,
After Thanksgiving Day."

More Than A Day

As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we're poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.

We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We're wealthy, when push comes to shove.

So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you've got;
Realize it's a lot,
And you'll make all your cares go away.

A Family Thanksgiving

Mom and Dad And all the folks
Who sit around the table,
All give thanks to the Lord above
For the fact that we are able
To have the food and shelter
We all need to survive,
And have the love of family
That makes it good to be alive.

Katrina Kaifs Duplicate - Zarina Khan Spotted By Salman

After finding a photocopy of ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai for his flick Lucky, Salman Khan has done it again, this time he has found a ditto copy of his current flame Katrina Kaif.

Zarina Khan, was spotted by Salman Khan on the sets of Yuvraaj, where she is Katrina’s body double. And after spotting her similarity with Katrina he has decided to cast her opposite himself in Veer.

A source reveals, “Zarina is slightly younger than Katrina, her age is 21. If one was to see Zarina from afar then you would not be able to make out who is who. Zarina’s name will be changed before the film releases and she will be given a much more common Hindu name.”

The girl has been in hiding, as Salman wants to keep it a secret, but we will surely show you the pic as soon we lay our hands on it.

Veterans Day Today, 11th November 2008 - Salute Veterans by Veterans Day Poems, Veterans Day e Cards, Veterans Day Greetings And Wishes

Today is Veterans Day To Honor America's troops. Four score and 10 years ago, the guns of World War I fell silent in Europe. From that event, the commemoration of Veterans Day in the United States evolved. Today, in the midst of two active and deadly wars in Asia, Americans pause to recognize those who have served the nation in the military.

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, a single veteran of World War I survives today. He is joined by about 2.3 million veterans of World War II and about the same number of vets from the Korean War. Some 7.1 million veterans of the Vietnam War survive, as do about 2.3 million from the first Gulf War. In sum, there are about 23.4 million veterans still with us who have served the nation in war or peace.

The latest Americans to join their numbers are men and women who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. To date, there have been about a million deployments. Some 4,180 Americans have been killed in action in Iraq, and another 617 have died in Afghanistan. About 33,305 have been wounded in action.

Today's wars have an odd place in the public consciousness. They seem to be there and not there simultaneously. We live in what has been dubbed The Information Age, where a Google click can bring instant statistics and personal stories of the wars to any computer screen. Yet the American public is singularly unengaged in these wars, to the point that veterans groups actually find it necessary to remind the rest of us of the sacrifices Americans in uniform are making every day.

Earlier this year, the leader of one veterans group attributed that lack of awareness to the fact that only about one-half of 1 percent of the American population is directly involved in the wars. By comparison, he said, about 12 percent of Americans were directly engaged in World War II.

Whatever the reason, Americans have a duty to hold their government accountable not only for the support of the troops in the field and their families at home, but for their care when the veterans march home. To that end, it is particularly important that the Bush and Obama administrations address ways to recruit more mental-health professionals to combat high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder and depression among returning troops.

They served us. Now it's our turn to serve them.

Thanksgiving Prayers, A Thanksgiving Prayer For The Day Of Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving Day Prayers

You should start your Thanksgiving day with a thanksgiving prayer.

Below are some Thanksgiving Prayers for Thanksgiving Day.

Though our mouths were full of song as the sea,
and our tongues of exultation as the multitude of its waves,
and our lips of praise as the wide-extended firmament;
though our eyes shone with light like the sun and the moon,
and our hands were spread forth like the eagles of heaven,
and our feet were swift as hinds,
we should still be unable to thank thee and bless thy name,
O Lord our God and God of our fathers,
for one thousandth or one ten thousandth part of the bounties which thou has bestowed upon our fathers and upon us.

- from the Hebrew Prayer Book


For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

We Give Thanks

Our Father in Heaven,
We give thanks for the pleasure
Of gathering together for this occasion.
We give thanks for this food
Prepared by loving hands.
We give thanks for life,
The freedom to enjoy it all
And all other blessings.
As we partake of this food,
We pray for health and strength
To carry on and try to live as You would have us.
This we ask in the name of Christ,
Our Heavenly Father.

- Harry Jewell

"Give Thanks"

Autumn leaves are falling,
Pretty colors everywhere.
Thanksgiving day is almost here,
Another day that we may share.

The things we take for granted
Are blessings from above.
The needs He has provided,
Were given to us in love.

Let's give thanks for what we have,
Bow our heads and together pray.
As we join our friends and family,
On this Thanksgiving Day.

Veterans Day Poems, Salute the veterans

Salute those unforgettable heroes in Veterans Day by these Veterans Day Poems.

Veterans Day

By Taylor Weinman

Representing the red white and blue

The colors of our flag stand out proud and true.

The white stars on blue background with red and white stripes

Remind me of these veterans, who all risked their lives.

Just so the people of the U.S. could all live in peace and be free

These are the heroes that represent you and me.

They stood up strongly, untied as one,

And kept up the fighting until they were done.

And although some have fallen, and lost their lives in war,

We pray for each one of them.

And now that their souls live on forever more,

Above in God's hands.

They watch over our nation,

And give us strength to triumph over others with strong anticipation.

So every year, when this day comes by,

Think of all the veterans that while fighting, had to die.

And remember that they were people

With fire and passion embedded inside.

They die for this country,

So remember and honor them with pride


by Brittany Skinner

They were there,

And they remember,

The shock, the horror

Of watching strangers die.

A life ended

By a fellow soldier's shaking hands.

The unimaginable debt,

Owed by a free world

Can never be repaid,

Still we try

Giving up an hour, a day

To thank you for the burden you now carry

Laid there so we can live our lives.

They fought,

And killed

Enemies with faces

Identities unknown to the bullets

Shattering the protective shield

Laid there by those they loved.

For one day a year we honor you

For our lives,

It can never compare

Still we try

Thanking you on this day

For a million moments

You lived so we could too.

Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11. However, if it occurs on a Sunday then the following Monday is designated for holiday leave, and if it occurs Saturday then either Saturday or Friday may be so designated. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)

A 'war veteran' (from Latin vetus, meaning "old") is a person who has or is working in the armed forces, or a person who has had long service or experience in an occupation or office.

For the most part, war veterans are treated with great respect in society. In Russia, a tradition was established after the Second World War, where newly married couples would on their wedding day visit a military cemetery. In France, for instance, those wounded in war are given the first claim on any seat on public transit. Most countries have a holiday such as Veterans Day to honor veterans, along with the war dead.

Salute the veteran in your life and send him your love and warm wishes 'coz it's Veteran's Day. Honor those who have fought for America and died for it's freedom. Veterans Day commemorates the extraordinary life led by those in service of the nation. It's time to honor the brave soldiers who safeguard our peace and freedom. Share their fearless spirit with people you know and love. Inspire them more through these elegant veterans day ecards and veterans day greetings.

Halloween Pranks, 5 Funny Halloween Pranks, Halloween Jokes

Halloween is less than 10 days out! For most people, this means cool creepy Halloween decorations, candy, scary movies, and an excessive amount of children and pumpkins.

But to many, it is just the excuse needed to pull some great Halloween pranks on friends, and get away with it. Before we move on, we must tell you that some of the following pranks can severely frighten someone, so really take the victim of the prank into consideration before you do any of these. The elderly, young children, pregnant women, people with heart problems, people with disabilities, people that are at extreme risk of suffering a serious injury during a fall, people much larger than you, violent people, fighting or martial arts experts, and people that are armed, are all considered very, very bad choices to pull these Halloween gags on.

Without further ado, here are 5 funny, and probably unethical, pranks to pull this Halloween.

#5 – Hide In The Fridge
Ok, so the first few pranks aren’t THAT bad. For this one, you will need access to someone’s home, so this is a good one to pull on someone you live with, or a very close friend. You will also need to be sure that the person will be going to the fridge soon, which is without a doubt the hardest part of this prank.

The best way to do this is to have someone that is close to your friend call them and say something like “Hey, will you do me a favor and look in the fridge to see if I left ‘whatever’ in there?”, or, have another person in on the prank with you simply ask the victim to grab them something from the fridge.

Now, preparation for the trick is usually quite easy. Simply empty out the refrigerator, and obviously hide the contents out of sight somewhere. Then, pull the shelving out of the fridge, and any drawers that may be at the bottom. Now, we also recommend unscrewing the light bulb that is inside the fridge, as well as making sure the kitchen and surrounding lights are off, as this will increase the effectiveness of the prank.

Now, just crawl on in, close the door, and wait. Once the victim opens the door, you need to scream as loud as you possibly can, and jump out towards them. If you really want them to freak out, wear a scary mask.

#4 – Shower Surprise
I have personally witnessed this prank, and let me just say, it is hilarious. You need to first find a place that has a tub/shower that is near the toilet in the bathroom. You also need to be sure that anyone that may use the bathroom is someone you know very well, as if you were to pull this prank on someone you don’t know, you could very likely go to jail.

Aside from the above, the execution of this one is very simple. Hide in the shower, and when someone comes in and begins using the bathroom, pop out with a fierce and frightening scream. Whoever this prank is pulled on is likely to start running before their brain can process what is going on and tell them to first “stop” going to the bathroom. This is a pretty sick, mean prank, but hey, boring pranks are for boring websites, and we aren’t one of them.

#3 – Backseat Killer
Ok, this one is pretty mean (just wait until you see the top two), but just like the above prank, I have seen this one in person on numerous occasions, and it never fails to be hilarious. This prank is great to play on a roommate or close friend!

First, you need access to their car, which will hopefully be a car with a back seat, or a 4 door truck, as a 2 seater vehicle just doesn’t work here. So, go ahead and find the keys and unlock the car, and then be sure to put the keys back where you found them.

Now, if you really want this one to be memorable, go ahead and put on a black jacket, but be sure it isn’t something you are commonly seen wearing, otherwise you will be more easily recognizable, and the victim won’t freak out as much. To top it off, a black ski mask, which can be found for a few dollars at any sporting goods store, will really make them jump.

Once nightfall comes, go out to the victim’s car and hop in. Be sure to lock the door behind you, unless they never lock the door, or it was unlocked prior to you unlocking it or getting in. Now, wearing completely black clothing will help keep you hidden, so it is highly suggested. What you want to do here is make sure there is no garbage or personal belongings that will make noise when you move around. If there is, just move it out of the way. Now, lie down on the back seat, but try to keep your feet in the center of the vehicle as much as possible.

Once the victim gets in the vehicle, wait for them to get situated and comfortable. Then, as quietly as possible, sit up prominently in the center of the back seat, and scoot yourself forward so your body is positioned just behind the backs of the front seats. When the poor victim looks in the rear view mirror, they will freak out, to say the least. I would suggest keeping your hands on the backs of the front seats, as most people’s reaction is to immediately slam on the brakes as hard as possible, which really sucks for you when you aren’t holding on to something!

#2 – Serial Killer
Ok, we are down to the last two. Now, to be honest, we wanted to list more pranks on here, but these are some of the absolute best, and we simply don’t know of any pranks that are more screwed up and downright wrong and terrifying than these last two.

First of all, you really need to consider who you pull this one on. If you plan on doing it to someone, really think it through first. You have been warned. Once you choose your Halloween victim, you need to figure out where the circuit breaker box is within their home. It is usually found on the outside wall of the home, or in a closet. In the circuit breaker, there will be a main switch that will kill power to the entire home, make sure you know where this switch is.

Get dressed up. Don’t go too crazy with a costume, but look scary, and look serious. Now, if the switch is inside the house, simply wait until the victim is in another part of the home, then switch the breaker, and stand right inside the door, and wait…

If the switch is on the outside of the house, you can either have a friend flip the switch for you, or, you can flip the switch and then stand right on the other side of whichever door would lead from the house to the switch. In either case, the victim will nearly bump right into you, and when they do so, they will experience fear that is like no other. This is likely to ruin friendships, and give the victim nightmares for weeks to come.

#1 – Death
Last, but definitely not least, this prank is just downright wrong. The emotions that you will instill in the victim are usually unrecoverable. This will likely make someone hate you if done correctly, so be careful.
This one is best performed in your own home, as you won’t seem out of place or anything. You will usually prepare for a few hours before pulling the prank, and then you will have a specific time for your victim to arrive at your house. You will need them to walk in, so be sure to say something like “Ok, just walk in when you get here, I’ll leave the door unlocked” when you talk to them.

Preparing the scene takes some work. What you want to do is make a certain area of your home look like an actual murder or suicide (the choice is up to you) has occurred, with you being the victim. Because it is Halloween, you can get all of the stuff you need from a local Halloween or costume store. Get plenty of fake blood, and make sure you get the expensive stuff, as it looks much more realistic, and you can usually find a large bottle, which you will need. You should also get some fake wound material, which is usually just silicone and some make-up for effects.

If you need some ideas on making fake wounds that look real, go scour YouTube, and search for something like “special effects makeup”. You can usually get some very good how-to videos, and then you will be on your way to the most horrific prank you’ve ever pulled. Now, personally, I would do this prank in either the kitchen or bathroom area, as they are likely to have hard flooring which won’t stain. Remember, there will be lots of fake blood everywhere, so carpet and drapery are bad.

Now that you have your makeup done, your fake founds, and your clothing of choice, go ahead and prepare the actual area you are going to be “dead” in. Start by taking some of the fake blood and lightly drizzle it onto nearby surfaces, including walls, appliances, counter tops, etc. If you would like to add to the realism, you can take a straw and dip it in the bottle of fake blood, then place your finger tightly at the top of the straw and remove it. This will keep the straw full of fake blood, and then you can place it in your mouth and blow in one hard and fast motion, like a sneeze, to create a “spray and spatter” effect.

Next, rub some fake blood on your hand, and find a surface near where your “body” will be, and go ahead and place your hand flat on the surface, then slide it in a downward motion. Finally, strategically cover yourself in fake blood, and then create a good puddle on the floor. Place your murder weapon of choice, whether it be a knife, a gun, or a baseball bat, nearby, and be sure to cover it in blood. If you choose to use a blunt object, such as a bad, stick, brick, etc., then be sure to put a good amount of fake blood on your head and face, and it also never hurts to find some hair, whether real or fake, and rub it in the blood that is on the blunt object.

The horror is in the details.

I would go on to explain what your victims reaction would be once they walked in your home, but I feel bad for them already, so you can use your imagination.

This is truly one of the sickest, most horrifying pranks ever. But then again, isn’t that the point?

Diwali Candles, Sparkling Diwali Lamps, Diwali Diyas and Candles

Diwali Candle is a minute mud lamp to light particularly on Indian fiesta Of Lights Deepavali. They are generally prepared using mud. We can use oil or ghee as the oomph & cotton swindle to make the wick. Even though in today’s era electric lights have substituted mud Candles (Diyas), at a standstill the appeal of customary Diwali Hindu oil lamps is present. These Diwali Candles are used to offer wishes to supernatural being & the late relatives, they are hovered on leaves above the sacred watercourses example like the Ganges next to Haridwar. They have extensively been connected with Diwali customs & are nowadays mainly essential part of all the Diwali streamers.

Rituals of Diwali Candles:

It is being thought that as soon as Lord Rama arrived to Ayodhya from past 14 years of expel, the public was joyful to see Rama alongside Sita & Lakshman. As it happened to be a no moon nighttime, citizens lit up candles & Diyas down Lord Rama’s passageway. On one occasion he arrives at his house, there was moreover a stunning show of explosives. Everyone chanted songs & hopped in merriment and received their emperor with open arms & spirit. From the time then, every year that date is renowned as Deepavali &the Deepavali Diyas turned out to be most obvious trait. Nowadays these little mud lamps are found lit in each house, workplace & place of worship.

Varieties of Diwali Candles:

Marvelously skilled Candles gesture interest for consumers. The mud Candles used on the celebration of Diwali replicate early drawing sagacity that is easy & dazzling in idea & widespread in application. The Diwali period sees an explosion of clay imagination varying from normal candles to fashionable Candles exhibited in fine art & sculpture boutiques.

On behalf of Diwali, different shops display sparkling Diwali Lamps & Candles crafted via earthenware stylish designers from every nook & corner of the nation. There are as well Diyas made using zari & mirror in enthusiastic shades. Charmingly, creative Diyas with stridently sliced boundaries, embroidered with cut effort are enclosed & packed through magnificent painted wax.

Mirror exertion & zari embroidered profound, conventional Diyas in addition to those embroidered by means of perfumed arid flowers, Ganesha & Lakshmi Diyas by means of 12 or 24 spurts, Diyas fashioned similar to porcelain leaves & shaded roses, small Parvati Ganesha Candles & several other devise compete for consideration. Finished out of mud, the Diyas in bright blushes of golden, red, blue, yellow, pink & gray are finely crafted.

Bhai Duj, Bhaiya Duj, Bhai Phota, Bhav Bij, Bhai Bij, Bhau Bij

The fifth day of Deepavali or Diwali is celebrated as Bhaiya Dooj, popularly know as Bhai Dooj or Bhai Duj. The name itself denotes the day of the festival i.e it falls on Dooj, the second day after the new moon. This day Yamaraj went to his sister's house who put an auspicious mark on his forehead for his welfare. Thus, on this day sisters perform puja for their brothers safety and well being. Brothers in return give gifts to their sisters as a token of love.

Another version is after killing Narakasur, Lord Krishna, went to his sister Subhadra who welcomed him in the traditional way by showing him a light and putting on his forehead a tilak of her sisterly protection. Another myth behind this begins as when Bhagawaan Mahavir found nirvana, his brother Raja Nandivardhan was distressed because he missed him and was comforted by his sister Sudarshana. Since then, women have been revered during this festival.

The festival of Diwali is not complete without "Bhaiyya Duj" in the Hindi-speaking belt, "Bhav Bij" in the Marathi-speaking communities, "Bhai Phota" to the Bengalees and in Nepal by the name of "Bhai-Tika".

Diwali is a personal, people-oriented festival when enmities are forgotten, families and friends meet, enjoy and establish a word of closeness. Reflecting this essence, Bhai dooj has its own importance in continuing to maintain the love between brothers and sisters for it is the day of food-sharing, gift-giving and reaching out to the inner most depths of the hearts.

As a festival of light and beauty it encourages artistic expressions through home-decorations stage-plays, elocution competitions singing and dancing programmes, making gift items and making delectable sweets thereby discovering new talents of younger people. As a result innumerable communities with varying cultures and customs mingle together to make Bhai Dooj celebrations a very happy occasion for all.

Diwali Diyas, Happy Diwali, Deepavali Diya, Subh Deepavali

The significance of Deepawali or Deewali lies in the victory of good over evil; and it is with each Deepawali and the lights that illuminate the homes and hearts, that this simple truth finds new reason and hope. Since baked-mud 'diyas' or 'deeps' are considered more holy and auspicious, they are purchased to light on the Diwali night, particularly before the idols or photographs of gods and goddesses while offering prayers.

deewali 2008, diwali diyaA Diwali Diya is a small earthen lamp that is lit especially at Diwali. They are usually made of clay. Ghee or oil is used as the fuel and cotton wool as the wick. Sometimes they are made by part filling a glass with colored water, Ghee is floated on top, and again cotton wool used as a wick. Children could make there own Diya with air dried clay or play dough. For safety reason these diyas should not be lit with Ghee and cotton wool.

Beautifully crafted diyas beckon attention of the buyers. The earthen diya used on the occasion of Diwali, reflects ancient design sense that is simple and stunning in concept and universal in appeal. The Diwali season sees a proliferation of clay creativity ranging from roadside agals to designer diyas displayed in art and craft boutiques.

During Diwali, various shops showcases brilliant diyas and lamps crafted by ceramic designers from all over the country. There are also diyas with zari and mirror in exuberant colours. Delightfully, imaginative diyas with sharply cut edges, embellished with cut work are covered and filled with bright coloured wax.

Mirror work and zari embellished deep, traditional diyas as well as those embellished with fragrant dried flowers, Ganesha and Lakshmi diyas with 21 or 11 spouts, diyas shaped like China leaves and shaded roses, tiny Parvati Ganesha lamps and many other design vie for attention. Made out of clay, the diyas in vivid shades of yellow, blue, pink, gold and silver are well crafted.
