      Following is from the newsletter of October 12, 2007 of the Hindu
      American Foundation

      As Diwali approaches on November 9, the Hindu American Foundation
      (HAF) is doubling its efforts to have the Diwali Resolutions passed
      through Congress. For the first time in history, the Diwali
      Resolution has been introduced in both the U.S. House of
      Representatives and U.S. Senate, as House Resolution 245 and Senate
      Resolution 299, respectively. This Resolution is the first step in
      ensuring that Diwali, a significant religious holiday for not only
      Hindus, but Jains and Sikhs, is recognized at the national level.

      As a member of the 2 million Hindu American community that
      contributes significantly to the financial, technological,
      scientific, artistic and political success of America, it is
      imperative that you and the broader Hindu American community
      encourage your Congressional leaders to co-sponsor these
      Resolutions. Please call your Congressman and Senators and tell
      them, "As one of your constituents, I would like you to co-sponsor
      House Resolution 245/Senate Resolution 299." HAF's statement on the
      resolutions is available here. You may find contact information for
      your Congressman and Senators at www.congress.org

      Calling will take less than five minutes of your time but the
      benefits will last generations in raising awareness and acceptance of
      our 5000 year old tradition of tolerance and pluralism. Also, get
      your friends and family involved in strengthening the Hindu voice
      that HAF is working to build and act now!
