Happy Fathers' Day in Calcutta (Kolkata) Bengal India | Gifts for your Dad | American Consumerism reaches Indian Bengali Shores

Father's day is celebrated traditionally in the Western world to honor our fathers for everything they do for us through out their life. In the United States of America, Father's Day will be celebrated on June 21st, 2009. The holiday always falls on the 3rd Sunday of the month of June in the US.

  • In Australia, Father's Day is observed on the First Sunday in September.
  • Father's Day in Canada is observed on the third Sunday in June.
  • In the U.K. Father's Day is observed on the third Sunday in June.

In a bizarre and ridiculous turn of events, people in India, in a mad rush to emulate the western world, have recently decided to observe Father's day as well, and for some reason, the Indian choice is the date of the American Father's day.

Now - Father's day is a controversial event here in the US, with many people blaming the Designer brands for creating an artificial event to drive up sales. There is indeed some truth in the claim that Mother's day & Father's day were created by Hallmark. Since when did buying a greeting card for your father on Father's day equate to loving your father, they ask. Now, the same question can be asked of many Bengalis & Indians.

In the spirit of the season, we bring you great deals on some excellent books, music CDs and collectibles for you to send as a gift to your old man. Secure payment, genuine goods, cheapest online prices:
