DiWaLi - A DeSi pOiNt 'O' ViEw

Thanks to my dear friend Tigeross !!! i got this email where I see the same old Ramayana in a new avtaar !!! Can call it the remix Ramayan !!! Here it goes !!!

A young second generation Indian in the US was askedby his mother to explain the significance of "Diwali"to his younger brother, this is how he went aboutit...

" So, like this dude had, like, a big cool kingdomand people liked him. But, like, his step-mom, orsomething, was kind of a bitch, and she forced herhusband to, like, send this cool-dude, he was Ram, tosome national forest or something... Since he wasgoing, for like, something like more than 10 years orso.. he decided to get his wife and his bro along...you know...so that they could all chill out together.

But Dude, the forest was reeeeal scary shit... reallyman... they had monkeys and devils and shit like that.But this dude, Ram, kicked ass with darts and bows andarrows... so it was fine. But then some bad gangstaboys, some jerk called Ravan, picks up his babe (Sita)and lures her away to his hood. And boy, was our man,and also his bro, Laxman, pissed... And youdon't piss this son-of-a-gun cuz, he just kicks assand like... all the gods were with him... Soanyways,you don't mess with gods. So, Ram, andhis bro get an army of monkeys.. Dude, don't ask mehow they trained the damn monkeys... just go alongwith me, ok... so, Ram, Lax and their monkeys whipthis gangsta's ass in his own hood. Anyways, bythis time, their time's up in the forest..andanyways...it gets kinda boring,you know... no TV ormalls or shit like that. So,they decided tohitch a ride back home... and when the people realizethat our dude, his bro and the wife are back home...they thought, well, you know, at least they deservesomething nice... and they didn't have any bars orclubs in those days... so they couldn't take them outfor a drink, so they, like, decided to smoke andshit...and since they also had some lamps, they litthe lamps also... so it was pretty cooool... you knowwith all those fireworks... Really, they even had somelocal band play along with the fireworks... and youknow, what, dude, that was the very first, nokidding.., that was the very first music-synchronizedfireworks... youknow, like the 4th of July stuff, but just, morecooler and stuff, youknow. And, so dude, that was how, like, this festivalstarted."
