Deep Jalao, Khushi Manao
Deep Jalao, Khushi Manao
Aayi Diwali Aayi!

Raat Amaavas ki to kya,
Ghar-ghar hua ujaala
Saje kangure deepshikha se,
Jyon pehne ho mala
Man mutav mat rakhna bhai,
Aayi Diwali Aayi!

Jhilmiljhilmil bijli ki
Rang birangi ladiyan
Nanhe munne hathon main veh
Dil fareb phuljhariyan
Diwali hai parv milan ka,
Bharat milihin nij bhai
Chaurahe, mandir, galiyon main
Lage hue hain mele
Nazar pade jis or dikhe,
Bhare khushi se chehre
Chaudah baras baad laute hain,
Siyalakhan Raghurai
Diwali ke din hain jaise,
Ghar main ho koi shaadi
Andar bahar hoye safedi,
Khush amma, khush daadi
Govardhan ko dhare chhanguriya
Inhi dinan gosayin
Nirmal Bharti

Season of Lights
Dunes of vapors from crackers rise,
Engulf, as odorous airs resound
Effusing joys to all abound
Pearls of gleams in these autumn nights
Adorn our lives else trite
With sparklers that motley skies
As soaring spirits of powder wander
Let us thank the heavenly might,
In this festive season of lights.

A Poem for Diwali
As echelons of zillion lights adorn,
and echoes of triumph and thunder swarm,
watching even a tiny gleam perform,
devoring ill,
sparkling joy despite forlorn,
exhorts a hearty & happy year merely born
-----------------------------------------------------

Sonnet: 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.
Dr John Celes

Diwali
The sweet smell of flowers
The array of colors
Diwali is here
Firecrackers are heard
Candles are lit
Children play
Presents are given
We pray to the gods
Diwali is here.

Happiness of 'Diwali'
Joy, Joy, Joy,
We can play with our cousins
We can eat so many sweets
We can fire crackers
We can worship Goddess Lakshmi because
It is Diwali
Happy Diwali
