Pesho's Gem of the Day: In our quest to be 'politically correct' today...in our do-gooder spirit of purging all that is 'alien' to our culture...are we doing more harm than good? Shouldn't we in today's troubled times welcome ANY opportunity to celebrate peace and goodwill on earth? If in a "gesture of inclusivity" mosques and minarets are included in the nativity scene, celebrate it rather than getting "puritan" about sullying the 'ancient traditions of Christmas' (Pesho is happy that Cardinal Angelo Scola, the Patriarch of Venice has been more gracious in his statement).
And as a wise soul once said "Beshaq mandir masjid todo
Bulleshah ve kehta Par pyaar bhara dil kabhi na todo
Is dil mein dilbar rehta"
Hey even Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has got into the spirit of things...so Live a Little...so Merry Christmas to Creatures Big and Small!! AND HEY IVE BEEN A BLOODY GOOD CAT ALL THIS YEAR AND NO RELIGIOUS GRINCH IS GOING TO STEAL MY CHRISTMAS
