Happy Diwali!

Wishing you a Safe and Happy Diwali

पर्व है पुरुषार्थ का
दीप के दिव्यार्थ का
देहरी पर दीप एक जलता रहे,
अंधकार से युद्ध यह चलता रहे,
हारेगी हर बार अंधियारे की घोरकालिमा,
जीतेगी जगमग उजियारे की स्वर्णलालिमा
दीप ही ज्योति का प्रथम तीर्थ है
कायम रहे इसका अर्थ, वरना व्यर्थ है
आशीषों की मधुर छांव इसे दे दीजिए
प्रार्थनाशुभकामना हमारी ले लीजिए!!
झिलमिल रोशनी में निवेदित अविरल शुभकामना 
आस्था के आलोक में आदरयुक्त मंगल भावना!!!
Greetings! I hope most of you would have completed your Diwali preparations by now and ready for celebrating the festival with your loved ones tomorrow. I too was busy the whole day (in) cleaning Room and household stuffs (due to office commitments couldn’t do it earlier) along with Maa, Papa and Rani. Celebrating Deepavali with Family after 10 (long) years is a special feeling. In the evening, I along with Papa Jee went for shopping – buying stuffs for Diwali Day. Interestingly, in Kolkata, people celebrate Kali Puja, a day before Diwali. Streets are lit up with varieties of decoration lights, Pandals with idols of Goddess Kali can be seen in every nook and corner of the city. It is completely festive mood over here; I can hear sounds of crackers bursting even now (1:00am). I am loving every moment of it, feeling excited about tomorrow. Truly, it is a city of Joy. 

That’s all for today. Once again, I wish you all a very Safe and Happy Diwali.
With Lots and Lots of Love.

P.S: I love the Diwali Poem shared today. In fact, if you remember, I had posted the same Poem last year as well. 🙂
