Deepavali -the Grand Festival of Lights


Deepavali is here, Deepavali is here

That grand festival of Lights

That ends evil after a protracted fight

When good with all its might

Leads us from darkness to Light.

Diwali is here, Diwali is here

That great festival of sound

When crackers and laughter abound

When crackers and sparklers light up the sky

When delighted children jump with joy.

Diwali is here, Diwali is here

That gorgeous festival of snacks and sweets

Where everyone enjoys a royal feast

When old and young with delight meet

With love and affection all hearts beat.

Diwali is here, Diwali is here

That gracious festival which celebrates victory

The ancient festival of myth and mystery

That is mentioned in both mythology and history

The festival that signals Triumph over Tragedy.

-Anushka Gupta
