Illumination





























The people of Ayodhya



Lit up the entire city


To welcome Rama the victor.


It was then.


Now,


For an individual like me,


The ‘Festival of Lights’


Is to know the flame within


That glows eternally


So that “I” too may attain


Victory over Ravana


- The symbol of evil -


That also dwells within


Like a shadow


And manifests


In the form of


Anger, Carnality, Attachment, Greed and Enmity.


Unless I as an individual


Am not able to conquer these passions


Until then


I cannot truly celebrate


Diwali -


‘The Festival of Lights.’

i strongly object to the title blog of darkness...this blog represents deep thoughts not dark....here i share deepest of my feelings and also what i feel and see around me...which perhaps most people are not comfortable sharing.
