I suppose this may be slightly off topic, but considering that it is Diwali, I just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone here. I have appreciated the thoughtful and very helpful responses I have gotten for questions that I have asked. And it is very nice to see everyone come together as a community.

For me, discovering a small amount of South Asian ancestry is interesting not because it is "exotic" but because it maybe helps explain why someone who understood himself to be just a white guy always had people suggest there was something else. I suppose I did get a clue when my classmates in high school gave me an Indian nickname! So, this forum's help in better answering that is very much appreciated.

For those who are celebrating, I want to wish you shubh deepawali!
