Happy Diwali : Published in 'Sakal' (Oct 24, 2011)

Context:
This cartoon is published in 'Sakal' newspaper on Oct 24, 2011.
As it is published in the Investment supplement, in this cartoon
I am wishing all the readers a very Happy and Prosperous Diwali in 'Money' context.

Translated:
Well, although I am not very good poet, here is rough translation.
I've done the rhyming in Marathi, which cannot be as it is translated.

Credit the Happiness
Debit all worries
By investing contentment
Rip the dividends of love
With 'mutual' understanding
Let the smiles be intact
Wish you all a very happy
and prosperous Diwali


Wish you all a Very Happy Diwali !!

Context:
My cartoons are published in 'Sakal' newspaper's financial supplement.
Here, husbands are 'advised' :) how can they invest their money during this season:
Diwali (festival of lights) - one of the biggest festivals in India - is just few days away.
And the shopping has already begun in full swing.

During this Diwali (festival of lights) - one of the biggest festivals in India - season,
DO NOT let your wife find your credit card. That will save so much that that you
won't be looking to ant investment option further.

Context:
This is Navratri festival time in India.
Navratri is a nine day long Hindu festival, worshiping Shakti.
Shakti is referred to as 'The Great Divine Mother' in Hinduism.

As per the mythology, Kali-maata (one of the differnt goddesses worshipped as Shakti) started to dance in sheer joy after she destroyed the demons. Shiva (her husband) requested her to calm down, however she did not. So Shiva lay as a corpse among the demons. When Kali stepped upon her husband, she realized and stopped.

Ref to this cartoon:
Here in this cartoon, the wife is has gone 'mad' for shopping and could not be stopped till her husband assures her to buy necklace and diamond jewelery.

Translated:
Wife,"You remember your Promise?"
(poor) Husband,"Of course I remember! I'll go bankrupt but will sure buy you the necklace and diamond jewelery set this Dussehra."

Context: Ganapati Festival - Ganapati, the beloved deity in Hindu culture, is offered
21 Modaks (Modak is similar to Momos, however with Sweet stuffing) as ritual.
The mice who is believed to be Ganapati's 'Carrier' (it pulls the charriot for the God) is very smart.

The God sees only two modaks in his plate, so he is bit angry, bit surprised.
"Hey, how come only two modaks? Where are the rest?"
"Dont worry Bappa (affectionate namae for the God); we cant eat all of these at once.
So I've invested the rest in a cool plan. Now after 4 days, we'll have 25 modaks and on top of it 4 Laddoos as well.
(Laddoo: Type of sweet)
