DIWALI- FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Gilttery lamps, Myriad diyas and light Illumination pan India filled with delight Whole nation splendent like lovely bride The zest of fest spread far and wide From northern mountains, western sands To eastern coasts and southern islands The spirit of triumph of good over bad To dispel darkness like light, in life to add To cleanse both our inner and outer sleaze Infuse purity, love and peace like fresh breeze Plenty sweets, delicacies for taste-buds to savour Fire-works add shiny and shimmering flavour All families get together to celebrate this occasion Bond of love enhances in every relation There’s fun, there’s frolic and there’s prayer Brings happiness and joy this feast every year!
glossary: Diya- is an oil lamp, usually made from clay, with a cotton wick dipped in ghee or vegetable oils. Clay diyas are often used temporarily as lighting for special occasions, while diyas made of brass are permanent fixtures in homes and temples. date: 2nd November 2016
