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!
Lets hope it brightens up our lives and minds. Festive greetings to you!
But first up, is this lovely poem by 9 year old Vivaan Sanghvi from Kolkata. He has used the reference of the triumph of the good over evil using a comparison of the old ( Rama ) and the new ( Avenger’s Tony Stark ) as heroes.
Vivaan Sanghvi, goes to The Heritage School and is studying in class four. He loves to read, write and learn about classic and vintage cars. He is a student of Word Munchers.
Diwali is the festival of lights,
It makes day and night really bright.
It shows the triumph of light over dark,
Celebrating heroes like Ram and Tony Stark.
The beautiful night is soon coming,
With colourful parades and music drumming.
The firecrackers burn till very late at night,
Filling the sky with colours so bright.
We decorate our homes with rangolis and lights,
Jalebis on the table make a pretty sight.
We sleep very, very late at night,
By the time we do it’s already morning bright.
It’s the festival of love and friends,
I hope this happiness never ends.

Attaboy Viv!! Excellent job.
Thank you for working hard
To pen us a delightful poem, oh my young bard.
I read you words at my leisure,
And it gave me so much pleasure.
So much so that I implore,
That you write verses even more.
So I say my boy, carpe diem,
And write us a poem per diem.
Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement! I was very happy to read all the comments and appreciation – Vivaan
