Diwali

 

Marks the return of Lord Rama,

From his exile,

As ordained by his father,

The King Dhashratha of Audhaya,

During exile full of toil and tribulations,

With Sita Mata and Sri Lakshmanji along,

He neutralized many a demons,

With his prowess immense,

Demons who desecrated the religious places,

Of worship of hermits,

These demons respected no rules,

Of humanity and others,

Including Ravanas,

The Great King of Lanka,

And consequently decimated the wickedness,

From the Mother Earth,

The purpose for which Lord Vishu,

Had taken Avtar.

 

The houses are spruced up,

To welcome the Lordess of Wealth and Wellbeing,

The Mother Lakshmi,

By fire-works and illumination of houses,

Business people worship their books of accounts,

And pray for prosperity for the days to come,

People celebrate Diwali,

With traditional fervor and gaiety,

By paying obedience at the temples,

With a pray for their welfare,

It is the festival of light.

Distributing sweets to relatives and friends,

Greetings and sweets are exchanged,

For each others’ prosperity.

 

Oh my Lord,

And Mother Divine,

Bestow your best wishes,

To one and all,

So that all ills are decimated,

Like the demons by Lord Rama.

HARBANS KHAJURIA
