Tanka – Diwali!

Pandemic days ebb

pirouetting flames of diya*

brightens festive mood

vibrant emotions dazzle

heralds celebration time

The dark shadows of the virus seem to drift away, as the winds of normalcy brings in a much-needed reprieve. With all things opening up and life returning to pre covid times, we pray for a better tomorrow. Hoping the sparkling conversations and sounds of laughter replace the din and smog of the crackers. Let’s illuminate our earth with the dazzle of love and peace.

Happy Diwali to all !

Happy Diwali!


This Diwali, lets make a difference!

Lets clear the obscurity that shrouds the mind

infuse it with a scent of gratitude.

Let the joyous mirth transcend

to light up our hearts with a luminous aura.

It’s time we pledge to stay away from crackers

but ensure to burst our inflated ego,

filing it with a liberal dose of humility.

Lets ignite the lamp of our soul

to be a beacon of light, in the darkness

emitting rays of hope shining bright.

Lets make this Diwali a special one,

upholding the spirit of the festival

with the triumph of good over evil.

Let the sparkle from the illuminations

brighten humanity with warm vibes.

This Diwali lets make a difference!!


A very Happy Diwali to all my blogger friends!

the laughter of family and friends.
