Default Happy Diwali to all IV members and their families

Happy diwali to the many IV members who celebrate the festival of lights with joy and happiness.

On this wonderful ocassion, lets all look back at what IV has done and continues to do as an organization. Lets look back at the July fiasco and how IV members united for a cause. Look at all the legislative efforts IV has been working and continues to work for our cause.

Lets all start becoming more active and continue with ongoing grassroots efforts.

msgs like this help establish the notion that this is an indian website dedicated to indian immigration issues. I didnt see any post wishing happy Eid/ Eid Mubarak nor did I notice last year that anyone wished a Merry Christmas/ Happy Holidays, nor do we wish our Chinese friends a Happy Chinese New Year.

Well said!!

We as IV members need to understand that this group represents groups from different nations and regions. Comments such as these that create a notion that this group represents particular group of immigrants, should be outright banned.

I have seen various instances of localized dialects being used by excited/frustrated IV members. A little bit of maturity and thought while posting on this forum would help us with our cause and harm us less.

As Diwali is national holiday in india... same is true for Eid and Christmas.
Would greeting on Eid or Christmas will also set the notion for Indian website ?

Happy Diwali to all

The people who wants to be a part of American Society should first definately be a very open minded towards all cultures and social trends.
Other thing to be Indian or representing Indian traditions is not a crime but certainly every time barking against anything Indian may certainly be a crime as it is a clear indication of closed door or prejudicial mind towards one particular country and culture. Americans do not mind if one shows that he is Indian now and want to become in American future. Although they prefer that AND that is why they label Jindal as Indian-American although he born in USA. If there are majority Indians on IV board, it is not a crime but it is obvious. Some of my chienese friends on IV board may start thread for wishing chienese festival, I bet most Indians on this board will welcome and same goes with Muslim friends on IV board. Starting and wishing EID MUBARAK thread (By the way that is also a Indian tradition..And I am proud of that too) is not a crime and by now if nobody started it does not mean other people may not welcome it. If you are a Muslim, start the thread for EID Mubarak, I will be the first to welcome that step. You want to be American,, right? Then first start learning open mind and start respecting the culture of majority IV memebers first. If you would not start that now how will you settle yourself in cultural pot of the world?

If you are an Indian citizen right now take control over your inferiority complex and get over it because if you do not respect your culture or your tradition what guaranty would be there for Americans that you would respect American traditions in future. Even Americans are not fool. And how dare you pretend that people form China and other countries just stop supporting IV as they just see few threads celebrating Indian culture? So stop this bullshit now otherwise I may have to request moderators to ban you.

By the way Happy Diwali to you and your family.

Dude - my perspective changed after I started living in New York City. Last week we attended a diwali event and it was just not Indians there but all nationalities were present there and everyone were greeting diwali wishes.

I lived in Bombay for 10 years and we celebrated every festival like Durga Puja, Holi, Christmas, we used to have Ramadan fast break lunches and everything.

Living in a cosmopolitan society, one must celebrate and respect every culture and their festivals. Thats the only way to achieve unity.

Default Happy Diwali !!!

There is nothing wrong in wishing well to other fellow members on a festive occasion. Its just that its the wrong forum to do so.

And besides this thread was started by a member and not a moderator or senior IV staff, hence its his personal view so please do not accuse IV of being partial to any particular race or ethnicity.

Please don't draw this fight out of proportion and stay focussed on our mission.

Everyone has the right to speak and if other Nationalities want to wish their fellow countrymen on their festivals they should be allowed to do so. Also, under the same protection of free speech if anyone on the forum does not agree with someone's coments they should be able to rebut and criticise them.

Even if a Mod or an Admin wants to wish its members on festive season, there is nothing wrong about it. Even the American President wishes people on ocassions and festivals.

Let this ' Festival of Lights ' make us focus on our mission of ending Green card Backlogs. Stop us bickering on insignificant stuff to satiate our bloated egos. And show us the light of GC soon.

Happy Diwali to everyone.
