* As a matter of personal interest Piyush Parikh from Toronto conducted a survey of opinions of Hindus (mostly Gujaratis) on the following two questions: 1) Should Indian film songs/tunes be played for Garba/Raas dances during the Navratri festival whilst dancing around the pictures/idols of Mataji? 2) If these songs/tunes are permitted, should the traditional dances be modified to Bhangra, Disco or other forms of western dances to match these songs?

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE.
