Naraka Chaturdashi. Effigies of the demon Narkasura is created over many months and then paraded through the streets through the day and into the evening. The parade conclude with the burning of these effigies which are often filled with fire crackers and other combustible materials! and bursting of crackers and other associated revelry.

A good friend who points out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals a secret of hidden treasure.

“Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music-the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.”
― Henry Miller

Good manners sometimes means simply putting up with other people's bad manners.
H. Jackson Browne

I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
Hermann Hesse

Do not think of your faults, still less of others' faults; look for what is good and strong, and try to imitate it. Your faults will drop off, like dead leaves, when their time comes.
John Ruskin
