Jothindra Congrats on the FP! Fascinated by the continuation of a tradition that makes no sense at all! Would have loved some narration as to the background of this tradition. The comments section clearly shows that this tradition is in vogue in other countries too. Is this just some sort of bravado on the part of some. Or is there some logical explanation to it? Is it symbolic of 'washing away all the dirt/sins' of last year? Will someone clarify?
Jothindra · 2011-01-07: 18:48
safedreams Nice, cute, very good, congrats, etc.
