I Still Celebrate Diwali!

I still celebrate Diwali
Like my granny used to,
100 oil lamps
And fairy lights, only few.

I still celebrate Diwali
Like my grandpa used to,
1000 golden-wishes
And gifts, only few.

I still celebrate Diwali
The way you also used to
That same 10-year old kid!
But sad, that you grew.

  1. This is so lovely. I discovered from a blogger friend that sadly, regardless of the belief in the benefits of earthen lamps burning with mustard oil during Diwali, this tradition is being replaced with electric and other forms of lighting.
