Deep Jalao, Khushi Manao-: By Nirmal Bharti

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 kav 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,
Siyalakhan Raghurai
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

Happy Diwali
It's the "Festival of Lights" today,
It's again the day of Diwali,
It's time to dress up folks,
It's time to adorn the thali.

It's the occasion to throng the temples,
Pray to the Gods and give them offerings,
It's an opportunity to entreat the deities,
To bless us all and rid us of sufferings.

It's the day to light the diyas,
Ignite the rockets and burst crackers,
But it's also the time to be safe,
From the fireworks and all the sparklers.

It's the season to pay a visit,
To all our friends and relations,
To hand them over sweets and presents,
Diwali is our splendid chance.

But while you spend a time of joy,
Don't think it's merriment all the way,
Out there wait many of those,
For whom it's no time to be gay.

Denied of laughter and smiles for days,
They know not what it is to enjoy,
Can you not share something you have,
Can you not bring them a little joy?

When you can make someone else smile
When you can be someone's ally
That's when you can yourself be glad
That's when you'll have a HAPPY DIWALI!

Diwali Poem Cards

The clear blue sky,
The scent of flowers,
The colours of Rangoli,
And the sound of crackers.

The gifts and sweets from dear ones,
And the getting of their love,
The light of the candles below,
And the dazzling fireworks up above.

Lighting lamps at our homes,
Making the less fortunate smile,
Putting on new apparels,
Show our friends some style.

Paying respects to the gods,
And decorating for them the thali,
This is what the occasion is all about,
This is the spirit of Deepavali.

Happiness of 'Diwali'...
Happiness of 'Diwali'
Joy, Joy, Joy,
We can play with our cousins
We can eat so many sweets
We can fire crackers
We can worship Goddess Lakshmi because
It is Diwali
Happy Diwali

Mangal deep jalao, aayi diwali aayi.

Diwali Poem Cards


Aayaa tyohaar Diwali ka...
Aayaa tyohaar Diwali ka
Bachcho ki khushhali ka
Bablu kahate papa se
Mujhako PC lana hai
guriya kahati mammi se
hame sitar bajana hai
papa bare achambhe me hai
ye mausam kangali ka
Aayaa tyohaar diwali ka

Bibi kahati pati dev se
Jab bonus tum paayoge
Sabse pahale haar sunahara
La mujhako pahnaao ge
Pati dev to mook bane hai
Rupaya denaa udhaari ka
Aayaa tyohaar diwali ka

Sab ki farmaish se tang huye hai
Bablu guriya ke papa ji
Patni to sir chadh kar bole
Kabhi na kahati aao ji
Ab bhaag na sakate papa ji
Jo theka liye rakhwali ka
Aayaa tyohaar diwali ka
Shambhu Nath

Diwali Poem Cards

Diwali-: By Dr. John Celes
Today's the `Festival of Lights' all o'er;
A joyful day for minds and hearts and souls;
And people throng the Temples to offer,
Prayers, resolving to take better roles.

And most of them are richly clad and clean,
And eat such dainty foods and sweets with mirth;
Whilst noisy crackers burst, their lights are seen,
It seems to be a happy day on Earth!

But are there not hearts woe-filled, very sad?
Denied of laughter, smiles for days;
Today's the triumph of Good over bad;
But what about the wastage in much ways?
True joy is when you see someone else smile!
True charity gives joy in Heav'nly style.

Diwali Poem Cards

Dunes of vapors from crackers rise...
Dunes of vapors from crackers rise,
Engulf, as odorous airs resound
Effusing joys to all abound
Pearls of gleams in these autumn nights
Adorn our lives else trite
With sparklers that motley skies
As soaring spirits of powder wander
Let us thank the heavenly might,
In this festive season of lights.

Diwali Poem Cards

As echelons of zillion lights adorn...
As echelons of zillion lights adorn,
and echoes of triumph and thunder swarm,
watching even a tiny gleam perform,
devoring ill,
sparkling joy despite forlorn,
exhorts a hearty & happy year merely born
