“The Festival of Lights” is all o’er
A joyful day for minds, hearts and souls
And people throng the temples, to offer
Prayers, resolving to take better roles
Most of them are rich, clad and clean
And eat dainty food and sweets with mirth
Whilst noisy crackers burst, their lights are seen
It seems to be a Happy Day on Earth !
But are there no hearts woe-filled, very sad?
Denied of laughter and smiles for days ...
Diwali marks the Triumph of Good over Bad
So let’s lend hands in our own ways
Doing things worthwhile
Because TRUE JOY is when you make someone SMILE
And TRUE CHARITY gives joy in HEAVENLY STYLE :)
