Festival of Light

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.
