DIWALI- light up our lives



D Decorating my abode with marigold, colorful rangolis, shiny kandeels and bright diyas

I Invoking blessings of Goddess Laxmi for wealth, Ganesha for prosperous beginnings

W Worshiping, rejoicing and celebrating the splendor of my dazzling, lit up city

A Always wondering about longings and cravings of the less endowed, wishful innocent                             eyes

L Let this festival of lights, O Lord, en-kindle an unflickering flame of hope in their lives

I I so earnestly pray to thee, enlighten this world, let good triumph over all evil.
