Diwali: The Festival of Lights

  At the turn of the Indian New Year,
The special festival " Diwali " is here
So we are proud to celebrate with Americans today
And are pleased to share!
Our customs and traditions are century old,
But they have built a profound name
Around the world, where our traditions are still found,
Buried well behind the fame!

" Diwali ", the festival of lights, illuminates
The darkness of the New Year's moon
And strengthens our close friendships and knowledge
With a self-realization soon!
So the " Diwali " day of Indians is a big celebration
To respect the sacred time
And reminds our heritage in America,
While echoed through the winds' chime!

This adopted land of ours has been built
By the sweat and toil
Of many many immigrants, past and present,
On this blessed soil!
Here we feel the values of freedom,
Voice and assurance as well
That America is the "Place"
Where our future is going to dwell!

So, let's rejuvenate our diversity today,
Because we are too happy to tell
About the real joy of a big celebration
That is now ringing the bell!
And let us all hope, the pride of our " Diwali " festival,
Although was born in the past
Will illuminate the stars on our Nation's flag,
To signify harmony, and surely it will last!!
