Dear Elaine,

Hope this letter finds you in radiant health and the best of spirits. I am writing this letter to invite you to celebrate our traditional festival Deepawali with us this year. Moreover, it will help you in the project you are doing on ‘Globalisation and Tradition’.

Deepawali is our national festival. It falls in the month of October or November. It literally means rows of lights. It is celebrated to commemorate the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile. This is one festival which all Indians celebrate. A month before Deepawali, we whitewash our homes and buy new clothes to wear on that day. On the day of Deepawali we worship Goddess Laxmi, the symbol of wealth and also burn crackers. There is lots of fun and frolic.

We would be honoured to have you as our guest for your entire stay here. You are welcome to bring your parents along if they can spare the time. Ever since I finished my course at Leeds University and came back home, I have talked so much about you to my parents that they are all very eager to see you. You will see that we Indians have not forgotten our traditional celebrations even if we have become a part of the global village which is influenced by the western culture. I assure you we will make it a memorable holiday for you.

Hoping to see you soon!

Yours lovingly,
Kiran
