Happy Thanksgiving

Every year an Expat group hosts an American style Thanksgiving dinner. The US Consulate flys in the turkey's and any ingredients necessary and off they set to cooking! It was a fantastic dinner - I'm veg, but having our own turkey to carve was as close to being home as we could get! (The pilgrims and American Indian statues were brought by someone at our table - a little added decoration!)

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. You may not see the same festivity as in USA, but wait for Jan 14th (sometimes 15th) which is celebrated as "MakarSankrant" in North and Pongal in South.

It is very similar festival like Thanksgiving. Pongal in Tamil Nadu, Makar Sankranti in the North, Lohri in Punjab, Bhogali Bihu in Assam and Bhogi of Andhra Pradesh.... They are all celebrated for bountyful of harvest. Depending on the size of celebration, people get an idea how bountyful was the harvest. There are "Mela" near major markets where people sale(or sale agreements are made) of their crops.
Kind of money people spend in these Melas are the indicator of crops :-)

Old days of economics when people did not even know demand planning, Supply Chain etc...
