Dipawali


Let Dipawali* bring all kind of happiness
With simple and satisfactory smile on face
That all wishes are fulfilled with honor
No grievances are at heart to feel more

All over the country, the earth’s surface
The lamps may illuminate with smiling face
The flame may try to reach sky with happiness
Let light spread its power over darkness

Light may try to take control
Over hatred by love’s sincere call
Hearts may long for durable peace
Let people feel about its impact with ease

This is how festivals occupy their position!
In coming days with each season
Let our minds be not vitiated
As we are proudly linked and related

Might and light is all there
But so long experienced with no fear
Any discrimination in thought or action
May add to bitterness with reaction

As we remove all dirt from houses
The festival must light up without any misses
Let our heart boom with clear intention
From now on only “brotherhood” should rule the human relation

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

of the slow autumn at my window,
