Ummm.... is there an echo in here?

Weird, weird stuff. The wording is the same, the year is the same; it's changed from "15 days before Dasara" to "14 days after Diwali", and "your" name is different, but otherwise the posts are identical. If this is a scam, it's not one I can figure out!

Sounds like a serious case of amnesia. Not only did the OP forget that his question had already been answered, but he also forgot his own original name!

Maybe the date of Diwali/Dasara can be determined algorithmically, and this is really a homework problem asking people to implement it?

Yes, maybe, or an interview question. Anybody ever get this one?
