Lights , candles, crackers, and sweets,
That’s my menu for Diwali treat.
Walking down the market, I searched for the things,
hopping from one shop to other, like a spring.
Somewhere at the shop, I met a cute little girl,
dressed in a pink with lots of pearls.
What are you here for, O little girl, I asked with smile.
For some sweets and candles, she said after a while.
Don’t you like crackers, I asked to her,
Yes, I like…, but I don’t prefer.
Crackers, they are amazing but create pollution,
It makes me sick, she said in frustration.
Please, miss don’t buy crackers,
It makes you happy but makes me sicker. 🙁 🙁
Innocently and cutely, she made me felt that day,
My actions could make someone to pay.
Diwali is a festival beyond bursting crackers,
All you need is friends, family, colorful candles, sweets and some little chandeliers.
Gifting her some chocolates, I thanked her that day,
For what miss, she asked in an innocent way.
Nothing my child, I paused for a while..
“Have a Happy and Cracker Free Diwali” ,Miss …
she wished and left with smile. 🙂 🙂
