    Smile Invitations to Deepavali and Hari Raya Puasa's celebrations?

    do you receive invitations to recent deepavali and hari raya's celebrations at your friends/colleagues/neighbours' home?

    well, i have not visited an indian or malay/muslim family for quite many years. the last was, perhaps, more than 15 years ago. at the moment, i do not have close friends/colleagues/neighbours from both racial groups. signs of deteriorating ties?

    yes, the story is about search for and found a long lost friend. one of them just happen to be a malay/muslim. just media play on racial ties.

    Having strong cultural/racial identities naturally leads to an "us" and "them" mentality.
