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!

Where is the festive spirit?

In response to Eugenia’s ( BrewNSpewCafe ) writing challenge : Festive

The booming economy and changing times

have diluted the essence of celebrations.

Festivals, which reflected cultural tradition

today is more about flaunting riches.

The warmth of cohesive affability is

replaced by instant gratification.

Instagram is bombarded with

pictures of the pomp and grandeur displayed.

Fragrance and bonhomie of the festive spirit

sadly, remains obscure and scattered.
