Other Mindy/Diwali news

Welcome to the Mindy News Network. At least for today. :)

Rather than put each new Mindy/Diwali story in a separate post, I will list them here:

  • NBC.com: Interview with Mindy Kaling about Diwali. (Thanks Jill!)
  • Netscape: on the set of The Office, part 2, with Mindy Kaling.
  • Zap2it: Happy Diwali From ‘The Office’. Mindy Kaling takes center stage in episode about Hindu festival.
  • NPR Fresh Air: Interview with Greg Daniels and Mindy Kaling (34 minutes).
  • KDWB radio, Minneapolis: Dave Ryan in the Morning Show interviews Mindy Kaling.
  • WKLH radio, Milwaukee: The Dave and Carole Show interviews Mindy Kaling. OfficeTally provided some of the questions!

SPOILER WARNING Any or all of the above may be spoilerish. I haven’t had time to check out each one, so this is a blanket warning. :)

Thanks to the many, many people who sent in tips on these tidbits, and a SPECIAL thank you to Marcus, Dave, and Carole over at WKLH!


  1. The comment about Jim stumbling forward in his relationship with Karen made me physically ill. I both long for and dread tonight’s episode. Damn you Mindy!!! Make the torment end….

  2. Oh yes post-it thief … me too. Unfortunately that Jim & Karen spoiler doesn’t sound too good if you’re a “JAM” fan like I am.

    On the other hand, I’m really excited about the supersized episode being a two parter! Can’t wait to see what happens (prays that it’ll be a nice “JAM” reunion).

  3. As much as I hate the idea of Jim moving forward with Karen, I enjoy the angst it creates for us JAMMERS. Really how exciting would it be if they got together right away…Ok who am I kidding!!!

  4. crap i hope that jim’s relationship doesn’t move forward with karen either…ugh. the suspense is killing me! i just want the episode to be on already!

  5. Can I tell you I have the biggest stomach ache anticipating this “awkward” kiss/scene. I know it is great for the storyline, but in my little JAM world, it is potentially devastating. I really need to get a grip on this!!! My kids make fun of my obsession with this show…but it is simply THE BEST EVER…I can’t help it

  6. I’m excited about this Jim/Karen stuff! I’m 100% a JAM fan, but I have faith in the writers and that things will work out, so I’m just going to enjoy the whole dramatic ride.

    And when I get to see John Krasinski kiss anyone, I turn into a puddle of goo.

  7. a stumbling step forward + there will be making out + a drinking game in stamford= trouble for jam fans

  8. I agree with both Chelsea and JimHalpertIsLife. I like the makeout scenes as well, but they need to be between Jim and Pam not Jim and Karen

  9. As much as I love JAM, I don’t mind him with Karen. Of course, I’m so not ready for him to kiss her. Or talk to her. Or look at her. Or breathe in her direction.

  10. In the NBC interview, she reminds me a LOT of my cousin who is about the same age as her… they seem very similar in how they speak and act. It’s kind of weird!! Mindy is my long lost relative!
