Mr. Enrique Peña Nieto, the President-elect will be inaugurated to assume his Presidency on December 1, 2012. He was elected as the new President of Mexico five months ago. 

Mr. Enrique Peña Nieto comes from Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which is Mexican's dominating political party in the 20th Century. He embodies the new generation of PRI leadership, however there lies skepticism on how different will he change PRI's practices and reflect these to his new government. Peña Nieto likes to change the conversations about Mexico focusing on economic advancement from drug violence. 

Last Tuesday, November 27, 2012, President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto met with President Barack Obama at the Oval Office and discussed about bilateral relationship between USA and Mexico.

"But I think that’s representative of the strength of the relationship between the United States and Mexico," President Obama said. "It’s not just a matter of policy, but it’s a matter of people, as represented by the many U.S. citizens who travel to Mexico, who live in Mexico, and obviously the incredible contribution that Mexican Americans make to our economy, our society, and to our politics." - President Obama

"We were both congressmen -- legislators, as we say in Spanish -- in our respective congresses in our own countries," he said. "And this means we're very sensitive to the needs of our peoples. And we also share a very important vision, the vision for instance of creating more jobs. We know this is very important, not only for the American people but also for the Mexican peoples, for both of our nations." - President Nieto
"I think the president elect is going to encourage Obama to move forward on immigration reform," said Farnsworth, a former official at the State Department and in the Clinton White House on Latin American affairs. "There are obvious implications for Mexico as well."- source: ABC News - Univision

On December 1, 2012 - Mr. Enrique Peña Nieto will be officially President of Mexico. Our best wishes for his new insights and collaborative efforts for the advancement of the entire Mexican Society across the globe. Vice President Joe Biden will lead the U.S. delegation to the President-elect Peña Nieto's inauguration.

"Happy Thanksgiving" - Enjoy the Celebration!

We wish you the best of happiness with fun celebrations, 
and Be Safe always!

This American Thanksgiving is a tradition that started in 1621, 

Historically, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast which is acknowledged today as one of the 'First Thanksgiving' celebrations in the colonies. This harvest meal has become a symbol of cooperation and interaction between English colonists and Native Americans. Native American groups throughout the Americas, including the Pueblo, Cherokee, Creek and many others organized harvest festivals, ceremonial dances, and other celebrations of thanks for centuries before the arrival of Europeans in North America.

Celebrating 2012 Diwali / Deepavali with You

"We are wishing the best and more successes in everyone's journey as we celebrate the 2012 Diwali / Deepavali Festival of Lights."

The Celebration of the Diwali Festival of Lights will begin shortly.  The Indian People and their communities celebrate this Festival in recognition to victory of the Good over the Evil and Light over Darkness. It has a major religious significance for Hindus, Sikhs and Jains alike - not only in India, but also for Indians living abroad. In the western (gregorian) calendar, Diwali falls on a day in October or November every year - just after the monsoon season in India.

Deepavali is celebrated for five days according to the Hindu Calendar. It begins in late Ashvin (between September and October) and ends in early Kartika (between October and November). The first day is Dhan Teras. The last day is Yama Dvitiya, which signifies the second day of the light half of Kartika. Each day of Deepavali marks one celebration of the six principal stories associated with the festival.

Deepavali and Diwali celebrations take place in many countries around the globe. There is a large population of over 30 million Indians living overseas. Those 'Non-Resident Indians' (NRI) and 'Persons of Indian Origin' (PIO) play an important role in many societies and enriching the cultural diversity of whole nations. The largest groups of non-resident Indians live in the USA, Canada, Nepal, Burma, Malaysia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi-Arabia, South-Africa and in the United Kingdom (UK). Depending on the origin of the majority of Indians, the festival in those countries is either Diwali (most immigrants from North-India, i.e. USA/Canada/UK) or Deepavali (most immigrants from South-India such as Tamils, i.e. Malaysia/Singapore).
