Hey everyone, your best friend Sara here! What a time of the year, for celebrations throughout the country!
Diwali or Deepavali, the festival of lights is here!
Here is 8 year old Nirav Prakash from Kolkata sharing his excitement for this amazing festival, in both words and pictures. Nirav is a student of La Martiniere for Boys School, Kolkata.
Oh this is a beautiful festival of lights,
On this day, all friends and relatives unite.
We eat chocolates and sweetmeats with delight,
Decorate each corner with lamps and candle lights.
And enjoy firework all through the night,
I love Diwali, the festival of light.
I am a firecracker, I go “Boom,”
After making a mess, mother needs to broom,
My uncle loves me the most, who will soon be a groom.
I burst high up in the sky with the sound kaboom,
And my pet hides like a cartoon in my room,
I am a firecracker, I love to “Boom!”
