Here’s wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous Deepawali 2008!
Rant etc: The picture was taken 2 years ago at an HDFC branch near my house. I wasn’t around at Bangalore to inspect the decor last year, but it looks like that this year the Diwali decorations are a lot more muted - which is not unnatural; considering what the financial world in general and banks in particular are going through. I for one am trying to be indifferent. If I were to distill my life’s learning (so far) into one sentence, it’d be this - things in this world are rarely as good or bad as they seem!
