Happy Diwali Everyone!!!

In honor of the godess Lakshmi, Lord Ganesh and all of my Bollyblogger friends, I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Diwali. May your days be filled with peace, prosperity and good fortune!

Deepavali Delights
Deepavali is here, Deepavali is here
That grand festival of Lights
That ends evil after a protracted fight
When good with all its might
Leads us from darkness to Light.

Deepavali is here, Deepavali is here
That great festival of sound
When crackers and laughter abound
When crackers and sparklers light up the sky
When delighted children jump with joy.

Deepavali is here, Deepavali is here
That gorgeous festival of snacks and sweets
Where everyone enjoys a royal feast
When old and young with delight meet
With love and affection all hearts beat.

Diwali is here, Diwali is here
That gracious festival which celebrates victory
The ancient festival of myth and mystery
That is mentioned in both mythology and history
The festival that signals Triumph over Tragedy.

Shubh Deepavali!

    Thank you for the warm greetings and the poem.

    Wish you too a belated Happy Diwali

    Songs, choreography, costumes and jewellry are great in Paheli. It is based on a literary novel"Duvida" that won the Sahitya Award (India's highest literary award). It is a bit slow though and not at all the usual Bollywood fare.

    I am sure you will enjoy it for Rani and SRK
