I think staying in the middle east you get a great mix of the west and of the subcontinent...you are surrounded by Indians who are speaking in familiar lingo...only time I feel the life is artificial here is during the festivals like Diwali where u suddenly realise that the whole world is not celebrating with you...and you try so hard to recreate that magic by lighting the candles or diyas and trying to remember the details of how Laxmi pujan is done back home...U try so darn hard only to realise that at some level you are faking up the enthusiasm!

Even in india also now a days very busy.......People dont have time, a mechanical life.....but If you are in Abrod or in india.........If you can enjoy work and life then you dont feel bore.....

Lalu-ji is my inspiration thats why buy 10 Cow's n farms....the busy life they give me some relaxation...Now i start like Milking...Big smile

i think diwali in india/ delhi is also more artificial than it used to be. gone are the days when one could fire a diwali rocket off at a bunch of galsWink, or color their faces with hard paint on holi (not that i did any of that stuff after i turned 12LOL). anyways, now these are "sophisticated" occasionsTongue

CB...I am talking about my small home town Diwali...that remains pretty much the same...I hated the show off in the Delhi Diwali too...but despite everything...the spirit of Diwali was still there...mitti ke diye, marigold flowers...those things are so special!
