Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!
A time to rejoice and celebrate,
families gather, over a lavish feast.
Array of flowers, lanterns and colourful rangoli,
lamps brighten the autumn night,
welcoming the goddess of wealth
mirth, gaiety and splendour
echo all around the country side!
The night sky bursts into sparkling glitter,
the air reverberates with the sounds of the crackers .
Amid the joyous spirit and prayers,
where the good triumphs over the evil,
let’s burn our egos and embrace humility.
Let’s pause to see those woe filled faces,
for whom life is yet another dark night
without laughter or light,
let’s pledge to bring smiles to their faces.
Let’s remember to offer a sincere prayer
for all those soldiers away from their families
on this festive night and so many other nights.
Let’s learn from the lamp we light this Diwali
to radiate cheer all around us and brighten lives.
Let’s be the reason for someone’s smile,
Let’s be the hand to feed a hungry soul,
Let humanity and gratitude be the new mantra of
A happy Diwali!
