Diwali, which is celebrated as the victory of good over evil & is celebrated in a befitting manner in north India. But, could you ever guess that this Indian festival of lights is also being celebrated out of the country with the same gusto! Hard to believe? Just check the below images from Singapore of this Diwali and see it for yourself.
For the second year running, Singapore is plying a Deepavali-themed train that displays some awesome Diwali artwork to brighten the interiors. And, this year, it is not only the train & five buses too that will carry this theme.
This totally Indian theme displays breathtaking Rangoli motifs, diyas(clay pots) and floral patterns on the walls and the ceilings. In addition, it exhibits decked-up elephants, lotus flowers and other Indian traditional patterns. Little wonder the pictures posted on the Facebook have garnered over 30,000 likes and comments.
This visual treat is the brainchild of Singapore’s Land Transport Authority, Ministry of Transport. The authorities plan to keep this artwork for the entire month of October, especially for Indians in Singapore.
A Facebook post by the Land Transport Authority states, “Celebrate the Festival of Lights with your own unique Deepavali commute this year! Our #Deepavali themed trains and station are back with a different by equally stunning decoration – featuring majestic elephants and Rangoli motifs that symbolize luck.”
Of course, the sizeable expat Indian population, that boasts of a predominantly Indian neighbourhood called ‘Little India’, is simply loving the importance given to their festival that marks the return of Lord Ram, Sita and Lakshman from a 14-year banishment.
That was a normal day as usual for all of us. But there was something different on that day for this dog who got adopted for peeing on his future owner publicly. Yes, that's strange but it actually happened. Heinze Sánchez from Rio de Janeiro was just browsing his phone when a stray dog peed on his back & as expected he reacted in an outrageous way. The moment was captured on a near surveillance camera. However, the story didn't end here. (more…)

It is certainly a wonder what people won’t do to get their 15 minutes of fame. But, here are the individuals who have been literally pushed into stardom on the internet, simply because they resemble popular cartoon characters!
Remember ‘Up’, the 2009 American 3D computer-animated comedy-adventure film? Well, its two characters Carl and Russel have been discovered in real life! So is the case with Looney Tunes Grandma and even Linguini from Ratatouille. There a total of 79 such characters who have found their living counterparts till the last count.
The real amazing thing is that people with similar facial features as cartoon characters exist. And they are getting noticed on the popular websites, such as boredpanda.com.
As someone rightly pointed out, it is the case of either the real-life people mimicking cartoons or the cartoons have begun to mimic us!
