GMAH, I am asking a logical question. Respecting parents comes quite naturally in India and you do not have to celebrate any special day for it. Until about 20 to 25 years ago, most people in India did not know anything about a Mother's Day but that does not mean they disrespect their parents. It is a Western tradition that - like many others - we are aping without thinking.

Tell me, how many non-Hindu people in the West even recognise Diwali or other Hindu festivals?

Before asking me if I am out of MY mind or coming up with meaningless long winded "you don't get the point" explanations, thinks hard about what I said and ask yourself some questions.

Errr. There is no religion involved with Mother’s Day. The concept is universally acceptable. It’s a good cause. Everyone can brace it with no inhibitions. The other day some ladies look rakhi to work place and tied it to non Hindu. Everyone was a sport and accepted in good faith as it’s a good act of showing brotherly love, nothing related to religion. You need a big heart to see things above religion lens. Sigh!

I agree with you but that heartiness is a bit too one-sided at present for my liking. Most indigenous Europeans consider Diwali as some sort of Pagan festival. A few years ago, they placed a protest in the local newspapers because the local Hindus wanted to celebrate Diwali in Leicester with a fireworks display, even through the advert said ALL were invited.

If you have such a big heart that rises above religion my friend, why don't you celebrate Ramadan? Or Bakri-id? It is all a matter of how you look at it.

Mother’s Day is not religion related.
It’s not equal to bakrid or Diwali.
Apples and oranges.

Yet, may be it’s a British thing, I don’t see any problem here in America to celebrate any Hindu festivals as I wish. In fact many non Hindu would join the fun and give me company. We did a great holi color festival in our neighborhood. All came and enjoyed the color fun. My daughters school mates all did a dress up in Indian costumes of my daughter and all enjoyed Diwali sweets. We do join eater egg hunt fun with all kids. It’s you! Not me!

GS, I strongly advice you to watch your step before you start personalising this. I merely expressed surprise that you guys followed those things in my first response and did not criticise your personal beliefs. I have a lot of relatives and friends in the US and opinions are very varied. It is not a British or American thing but an individual opinion. Let us leave it at that.

Watch your step buddy. You are the one who put religion in Mother’s Day. Read again what you said.

Yes I did mention religion in general terms. So have you in the past in other posts if you look back, albeit in a different context. As long as we don't go overboard I believe it is all right to discuss religion and related issues in general terms. But what I am asking you not to do is to use that (or anything else) as a platform to send out personal barbs. That remark "you not me" was not appropriate.
