2006 Holiday file for India

Seshu Parvataneni
Hi,

Attached is the calendar file for holidays and festivals in India for
the year 2006. I would really appreciate if you posted this calendar
file in the appropriate calendar project page. I am very happy to
contribute this file for the third consecutive year. I wish all the
people involved in this project Merry Christmas and a very happy new
year, 2006. Hope the new year brings a lot of good features to the
calendar and the lightning project.

Thanks,
Seshu Parvataneni

When will the holiday files be posted?

Seshu Parvataneni
Hi,

May I know when would these holiday files contributed to Mozilla
calendar be posted in the calendar holiday project web-site? I see
that the 2006 holidays files posted here are yet to be posted there. I
would really appreciate if they were posted well before the new year.

Happy Holidays and a new year,
Seshu
