  1. In Nepal last October there was a Hindu festival of lights. The stray dogs had “leis” of marigolds and we’re each given a good meal. It was touching.

  2. Gwen, the festival is Diwali, or Deepawali, to give it its full name. The garlands of marigolds for the dogs might have been to apologise to them for all the noxious firecrackers that scared the pants off them.
