The Herald Tribune reports that a home furnishings company in India will destroy all promotional materials for its "Nazi Collection" linens, after India's Jewish community complained.  The Nazi Collection packaging also featured swastikas. 

"Furnishing dealer Jagdish Todi met Jewish community leaders to assure them that the family-owned company did not intend to hurt the sentiments of Jews, said Jonathan Solomon, chairman of the Indian Jewish Federation." 

The swastika, as is fairly well-known, is an ancient Hindu good luck symbol.

The company claimed Nazi stood for "New Arrival Zone For India." Which sounds like a perfectly reasonable name for a linen collection?!?
