The US has passed a resolution recognizing Diwali officially in theUS. It got an overpowering 358 votes for resolution and there is not even a single vote against the resolution. This is really proud moment for India and the Indians who live in the US. An official said that this festival is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains in the US.
But I am sure that if the US representatives who voted for the resolution come to know that an Indian state, Kerala, does not celebrate Diwali they will be shocked. (People from other states who stay in kerala will celebrate diwali)
I really wonder why keralaite Hindus or Sikhs or Buddhists or Jains are not celebrating Diwali When all over the world diwali is celebrated by these religious people.
