Here comes Diwali,the Hindu festival of light,
Celebrated by people,with so much delight.

Homes are lit up with diyas,candles and shimmering light,
Rangoli the colourful floor design,make the ambience so bright.

Firework displays are held, while families feast and share gifts,
It’s time to embrace each other and forget any rifts.

Triumph of light over darkness and good over evil,
The victory of Lord Rama over Ravan,the devil.

Diwali commemorates the return of Lord Rama from exile,with wife Sita and brother Lakshman,
To welcome their homecoming, the people of Ayodhya kingdom lit diyas in celebration.

Lakshmi the goddess of wealth and Ganesha,the God of intelligence are worshipped together,
Conveying the message that one must acquire intelligence to spend wealth in right manner.

So get ready to wear new clothes and adorn the Puja thali,
After all, it’s our favourite festival,Diwali.
