LIGHT UP YOUR HEARTS THIS DIWALI
By Neel Anil Panicker
May the festival of colours bring everlasting happiness into your life
May you share your happiness and turn your life even more beautiful and enriching
May you carry on further enriching the lives of all whom you touch with empathy, kindness, and fulfillment.
May you fulfill all your desires and dreams and your joys be realized.
May you always be real and careful and mindful of the feelings of all including those who know you and those who don’t.
May you don’t ever fall prey to the wily machinations and self serving designs of a few misguided bigots who have yet to the see the glory of light.
May the light that you light today shed light on the goodness of mankind and burn out all the darkness from this world.
May the world shed the evil of darkness and brighten up and glow with universal values of love, brotherhood, kindness, empathy, and forgiveness.
May you learn the virtues of how to forgive and forget.
