Happy Diwali

It’s the “Festival of Lights” today,

It’s again the day of Diwali,

It’s time to dress up folks,

It’s time to adorn the thali.

It’s the occasion to throng the temples,

Pray to the Gods and give them offerings,

It’s an opportunity to entreat the deities,

To bless us all and rid us of sufferings.

It’s the day to light the diyas,

Ignite the rockets and burst crackers,

But it’s also the time to be safe,

From the fireworks and all the sparklers.

It’s the season to pay a visit,

To all our friends and relations,

To hand them over sweets and presents,

Diwali is our splendid chance.

But while you spend a time of joy,

Don’t think it’s merriment all the way,

Out there wait many of those,

For whom it’s no time to be gay.

Denied of laughter and smiles for days,

They know not what it is to enjoy,

Can you not share something you have,

Can you not bring them a little joy?

When you can make someone else smile

When you can be someone’s ally

That’s when you can yourself be glad

That’s when you’ll have a HAPPY DIWALI!


Today’s the ‘Festival of Lights’ all o’er;

A joyful day for minds and hearts and souls;

And people throng the Temples to offer,

Prayers, resolving to take better roles.

And most of them are richly clad and clean,

And eat such dainty foods and sweets with mirth;

Whilst noisy crackers burst, their lights are seen,

It seems to be a happy day on Earth!

But are there not hearts woe-filled, very sad?

Denied of laughter, smiles for days;

Today’s the triumph of Good over bad;

But what about the wastage in much ways?

True joy is when you see someone else smile!

True charity gives joy in Heav’nly style.

 Ayi Re Ayi Diwali

Ayi Re Ayi Diwali

Patakhe tohfe layi Diwali

Dil ko khush karne ayi Diwali

Ayi re ayi diwali

Ayi re ayi diwali

Maze karte huye bacche dekho

Mummy ka na Papa ka dar hai

School ka na Teacher ka dar hai

Bulb fool lagate Papa

Mandir sajati dekho Mummy

Bacche hain khelte koodte

Pathako main ekdum must hai

Khaana dekho banati chachi

Chocolate khate dekho chacha

Bhagwanji ki puja main sab

Shish jhukn ke baithe dekho

Arti lekar or parshaad khaakar

Jhoom utha saara parivaar

Ayi re ayi diwali

Ayi re ayi diwali

Khushiya dekho lai diwali

Ayi Re Ayi Diwali


The clear blue sky,

The scent of flowers,

The colours of Rangoli,

And the sound of crackers.

The gifts and sweets from dear ones,

And the getting of their love,

The light of the candles below,

And the dazzling fireworks up above.

Lighting lamps at our homes,

Making the less fortunate smile,

Putting on new apparels,

Show our friends some style.

Paying respects to the gods,

And decorating for them the thali,

This is what the occasion is all about,

This is the spirit of Deepawali.
