A celebration of light

Diwali is the Indian Festival of Lights. It’s a celebration of victory of truth over lies, good over evil and positivity over negativity!

While the festival has a great mythological significance of the epic ‘Ramayan’ , it essentially signifies being enlightened and truthful to oneself!

The delicate quiver of a flame,

Yet it burns bold,

Its journey as it wanes,

A story to be told!

The brilliance of its dazzle,

The toil of its burn,

In my mind’s hustle,

A thousand thoughts it churns!

Devouring the dark,

It reveals the real!

Chaos or calm,

The birth of light!

A glowing silence,

Oblivious to its might!

Amplifying shadows,

And diminishing doubt,

Cannot the mind learn?

To calm it’s shout!
