Deepaweali literally means “A row of lights”

It is the grand festival, marked by glow of lights


Otherwise man remains in dark ignorant

The festival takes him to light radiant


The festival is really precious

It creates sparkling moments lustrous


Spectacular fireworks display

In festivity, a major role it does play


Colourful display is feast to the eyes

Distributing sweetmeats people cement ties


Wearing new clothes people greet each other

Dispelling darkness they welcome light rather


With resplendent heart people worship radiance

Celebrating Deepawali they march towards brilliance


May radiant heart become lustrous bowl

And brighten the world lantern like soul
