I have to introduce Diwali in case you've never heard of it! Well it is the festival of light, Diwali celebrates to victory of the Good over the Evil and Light over Darkness according to Hindus and Sikhs. I knew about it and enjoyed the food made for that very much while I was in Dubai. The Indian community is quiet massive over there! Unfortunately we do not get to enjoy the richness of different cultures with the same style in Doha - Qatar!
This year's Diwali is scheduled for Oct 26th, 2011.
Back to our topic, I 'm copying this from Priya's blog that I like a lot BUT I hardly find time to check it often.
"Indusladies is compiling an E-Book called “100 Yummy Diwali SweetRecipes”. We are collecting sweet/dessert recipes from various bloggers to be featured in this E-Book.
This E-book will be made available as a free download to our community's 1.3 Lakh+ members. In addition, they are also be making this E-Book available to our 9000+ Facebook fans and Twitter followers. It's LOTS and LOTS of exposure to those food blogs entering the E-Book!!
We believe this would be a nice way to get the word out about a wonderful blog to the entire membership of IndusLadies!!
Those bloggers interested in submitting a recipe for this E-Book...all you need to do is as follows:
1. Send a link from your blog for a sweet /dessert recipe. It should also include the picture of the sweet/dessert. Your recipe, food picture, recipe URL as well as the entire blog URL will get featured in the E-Book.
2. In return, we need you to do two things:
- Now make a blog post in your blog announcing the E-Book compilation by IndusLadies and the recipe you are sending for this E-Book. That way inviting your co-bloggers interested to send in their contribution by Oct 10th,2011.
Any blogger interested can send their entry to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 8th. "
