If it was not for Google maps I would surely be in the Lost and Found department for 80% of my life !!! My favorite phrase other than,
Oh! not again.....is .... Just Google it !!! Two weeks back my hubby was sulking because he will not be able to go home and enjoy Diwali. As he went on and on about how much fun it is to light diyas at home and burst crackers, I almost felt like telling him everytime....Just Google it !!
Couple of days after that, I saw a mail sent by a blogger friend which had this link, when clicked showed me that he had lit a diya for me :). It was a nice feeling :) :). So last weekend when certain Mr. Husband was complaining about not being able to light diyas at home, I told him to....Just google it!! why only your home light it in many other homes all over the world......Well!! he did have a question mark on his face....So herez how you do it :D :D
NRIMatters.com and Kotak NRI Banking have come up with a unique idea for people to greet each other this Diwali with “Festival of Lights”. Now Indians can light up the whole world this Diwali using the Google Maps.
In its first of a kind initiative, a person can choose the destination of his friends’/relatives’ homes and pin a Diya at their place of residence. You have to type the address of recipients’ location in the search bar to reach for your destination where you want to place the Diya. Once you type, the App zooms in the exact location on Google Maps. Now you can place the Diya wherever you want at the location and send him a personal message using both his email address or by Facebook.
Once the receiver sees the link with the message either on facebook or their email address; they will see the Diya at their location once they click the link.
Diwali is by far the biggest festival for Indians and NRIs living all over the world and “The Festival of Lights” application is a perfect opportunity to both celebrate the Diwali spirit and spread it among your family and all your friends by lighting up their homes.
Here is the link for you to send the diya: http://www.nrimatters.com/diwali

Aare what better way to wish, ofcourse you can call up, skype through and send E-cards, but diya to diya hai...iski baat hi kuch aur hai... nothing can beat it :) :)...
