Deepawali

Deepawali is one of many Indian festivals

Celebrated with the lights and joy is ample

It also coincides with harvesting of crops

Community is hence in festive mood lots

Crackers are cracked, enhancing the joy

Lights and fireworks are children’s toy

Sweets and gifts are exchanged in friends

It is spontaneous and continues as trends

Light is victory, leaving the darkness behind

Though lighted visibly, it awakens the mind

The night is when, moonlight is minimal

Lamps, candles n electric lights are joyful

Stories are in plenty, partly region specific

Goodness wins over our bad characteristic

Goddess of money worshipped as Lakshami

Wife of the God which nourishes the humanity

Along with the Goddess of knowledge, Saraswati

Physical power is symbolized by Goddess Parwati

Three Goddesses complete the trio, the ruling power

People worship any or all depending on their nature

One should try to be victorious over one’s evils

Be happy, spread it n certainly defeat thy devils

      There is no agenda, nor it a mission.
      It is simply a fun to pass spare time.
      I don’t think I called for assistence.
      I usually don’t visit my comments in other blogs.
      Thanks for visit and comments.
      Have a nice day.
