It was a cold appeasing evening
The elation and serenity I could feel
The warmth of the feelings
Were not bigger than that of the eve.
I was walking down the lane
And was busy admiring the scene
Everywhere I could see
Just the decorated houses and trees.
The market place was occupied
By people of all age
The flowers, the vase, the effigies
All were being bought without any rage.
I passed the sweet shop
Ah! The sweet smell wafted through my nose
‘Kaju Katli’ ‘Besan ke Ladoo’ ‘Suji ka Halwaa’
They gave me the feeling of a rose.
Walking and walking
I came across ‘an illuminated nest’
Though other homes too had the shine
But that one differed from the rest.
It was all enveloped in lights
The ‘diyas’ were kept at the door
The gate was designed with garlands
And all the happiness it wore.
I felt so special
After seeing all what I wanted
And the ‘kandeel’ in the sky
Made the children happy and haunted.
You see, why there is so much love around
Do you know the reason?
Its obvious that it can be just
The Diwali Season.
