It was the evening of Diwali festival
and the streetlights were on.
The cool breeze accompanied by
Cloudburst and rain covered the village.
Weather was a little cloudy but cool breeze
added to the festive mood.
In the brilliant atmosphere, the birds
were flying towards their nests.
The cowboys were returning from
the grass field with all the cattle.
The sound of conch and the ringing of a bell
could be heard from the temple.
The environment inspires to recollect
that sky is nothing without stars.
On the eve of Diwali festival, school
declared holiday as an autumn break.
Offices remain closed and businessmen
visit their clients to exchange gifts.
Diwali is the festival of light, sound, touch,
smell, feeling, and for blessings.
It is a great privilege to meet our relatives
and friends during the festivals.
We must enlighten our relatives and
friends about our culture and heritage.
The worship of Kuber, Ganesha, and
Lakshmi is essential in this celebration.
Believe in God who can create new life
and do things that are impossible.
Adopt a healthy lifestyle to ensure your
life remains stress-free and happy.
