The lights are bright, the colors explode
Feel the magic of Diwali unfold;
A time to spare moment of thought
For the Gods whose gifts we all have sought.
This is the season to love and be loved,
A time when all are one;
Spread the word, there is love for all
There is a God, we are his sons.
Wear your finery, dress your best,
Diwali is a time for bliss;
With a prayer on your lips and love in your heart
This is a day you just can't miss!
What is Diwali?
Rama came to earth as an answer to man,
To save the world from sin;
To help man realize his own true nature
And to love his kith and kin.
He suffered long years in the wild,
He gave up his rightful throne;
He lived a life of solitude
For Sita he did mourn.
Vanquishing the evil Ravana
Rama then returned home;
To a land that was rightfully his,
To the people who were his own.
On this day Ayodhya came to life,
The people were filled with delight;
For the one who was meant to be their king
Was coming back to claim his right.
The roads were lit with merry lights,
Joy and happiness had returned;
Rama and Sita were greeted with open arms
Their homecoming was widely cheered.
To this day we celebrate, as
The victory of good has come to show;
A day we know as Diwali
Will be celebrated evermore.
Diwali is finally here,
A time for fun, laughter and cheer,
We have waited long and hard,
And the day is finally near.
We start with the ceremonious bath
And then we all do gather;
For clothes and gifts, sweets and crackers
We receive from our father.
The evening is a time for prayer,
We ask for several gifts;
We have to thank for countless blessings
We know we cannot miss.
Our friends are here, they have some sweets;
We share with them ours too;
And then we went, armed with our crackers,
And playthings - old and new.
The day had passed before we knew it,
Diwali has come to an end;
But we know that it will be here again
The promise is good, and true.
Deep Jalao, Khushi Manao
Deep Jalao, Khushi Manao
Aayi Diwali Aayi!
Raat Amaavas ki to kya,
Ghar-ghar hua ujaala
Saje kangure deepshikha se,
Jyon pehne ho mala
Man mutav mat rakhna bhai,
Aayi Diwali Aayi!
Jhilmiljhilmil bijli ki
Rang birangi ladiyan
Nanhe munne hathon main veh
Dil fareb phuljhariyan
Diwali hai parv milan ka,
Bharat milihin nij bhai
Chaurahe, mandir, galiyon main
Lage hue hain mele
Nazar pade jis or dikhe,
Bhare khushi se chehre
Chaudah baras baad laute hain,
Diwali ke din hain jaise,
Ghar main ho koi shaadi
Andar bahar hoye safedi,
Khush amma, khush daadi
Govardhan ko dhare chhanguriya
Inhi dinan gosayin
Diwali ke din hum diye jalaaye
Khusihyon ki bhandaar ghar laaye;
Ghar parivaar aur doston ke sang
Baante Diwali ke hare ek rang.
Magar wo bhi hain jo Diwali
Chaahkar bhi na manaa sake,
Unko bhi ek mauka to do
Taaki unhe bhi ek avsar mile.
Iss Diwali apne mithaai aur bhent
Dosto ko hi na baante,
Unki bhi madat karo jo
Diwali ki mithaas na jaan paate.
Aao hum sab ek pran lekar
Is Diwali me sabko shaamil kare,
Chhote bade, bachche aur bade
Manav ka udhdhaar karein.
Puja paath, bhajan aur aarti,
Bhagwan ko badi bhaati hai,
Magar doosron ko khushi dena
Unki sachchi seva kehlaati hai.
Is diwali kayee rang ke deep jalengay
Is diwali yaadon ke kuchh deep jalengay
In deepon kee jyot se dil mein preet ke laakhon diye jalengay
Is diwali nayee aas ke diye jalengay
Apnay swapnil nayan deep mein
Sundar sapnon ke pushp khilengay
Is diwali satya kee aag mein jhooth jalengay
Haan ke paavan havan kund mein
Samporna samooche nakaar jalengay
Is diwali man hee man ye pran karengay
Preet kee jyot se har dil ko hum jag mag jyotirmay karengay
Is diwali kayee rang ke deep jalengay!
