The Day of Days

This is not a frequent happening.

The festivals of several belief systems and cultures have come together on March 21, 2008: Good Friday, Holi, Nauroz, and Eedé Meelaad-ün-Nabi have all fallen on the same day as World Anti-Racism Day, beckoning everyone of us to live in Peace.
In a saner world - considering that the event could have been reasonably predicted years ago - we would have made this a special international day of celebrating our diversities. Here's hoping it'll happen the next time around.
Until then, the least we all can do is

My vote is: Yup you certainly can! Finding it, keeping it and using it at just the right time is no mean feat. Happy Co-existence Day!

It should not be too hard to COEXIST

After all we live on the same planet why kill each other in the process

You are obviously a native of another planet, sir. One that is particularly low on oxygen.
