Deepavali,the Festival of Lights.
A time for festivities and happiness for all.
Let that be so for everyone.
Celebrate it with puja and prayers,
If you want.Eat sweets and savouries.
Decorate your house with rangoli
Light diyas to beautify the house.
Wear new clothes.give to the needy.
Naraka Chathurthi and Bali padami
In the south,Laksmi Puja in the west
Return of Rama after war in the north.
And Kali Puja in the east.
For men, gambling sessions for those
who like to gamble,Dhanteras to buy
More gold to adorn for ladies.wealth is prayed for.New accounts are opened.
Real significance lies in dispelling the
Darkness in your heart and lit it up
with good thoughts and deeds.
Be happy and make others happy.
Celebrate in whichever way you want.
Why crackers,adding to the pollution
Noise as well as environmental?
Think of the hundreds of deaths happening
As it is in wars and bomb blasts.
Why add to that? Last week two fires.
Negligence in storing and lack of stringent rules and punishment.
In one I.C.U patients
In another an I.A.S academy affected.
It is not the number of deaths which matter
Even one life is still precious to someone.
Think of the children involved in match factories.
And the hazards involved in that
All lives are valuable but with children more tragic.
Consider children’s safety and health if you must,celebrate with less harmful ones.
look at the mess it creates the day after.
Swatch Bharat is the current slogan.where is that?
Message is celebrate you must but no crackers.
