Happy International Integration Day

Lets call today “International Integration Day.”

Today, on the eve of a remorseful September 11, the world is immersed in profound emotions, when some barely got done with Mother Mary’s birthday celebration, some are welcoming a new year with Rosh Hashanah, some bidding farewell to a favorite month and giving thanks with Eid ul-Fitr, some are singing Happy Birthday to Lord Ganesha with Ganesh Chaturthi and some are asking for forgiveness with Michhami Dukkadam. As each individual group plays its part with reverence to its own God, our integrated world plays a balancing act of happiness and sadness.
