This is just a short post to let my blog friends know about a cool diwali feature that is available on the website NRI matters.
It is called light a diya. Since diwali is fast approaching, they've come up with an interesting little feature that can help us send diwali wishes to near and dear ones. Here's some more information about the application.
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. Here is the link http://www.nrimatters.com/diwali
Once the receiver sees the link with the message either on facebook or his email address; he will see the Diya at his location once he clicks 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.
So go ahead and make this Festival of Lights more than just a celebration with NRIMatters.com. Wish every Indian all over the globe and light up the world - one Diya at a time.
