The Festival Of Light

Let this festival of light make your life bright
Everywhere we see the hanging lamps of hopes and dreams
But you always aim at the themes and creams.
You have lit the lamp of knowledge
In its glowing brightness, I acknowledge-
The life of serenity, truthfulness and open-mindedness
Will surely lead us to the path of boldness
At all ages and at all times and in all the countries of the world
Great Men have lived for values and ethics
They alone can build the basics of civics
The life of ideals is always greater than the actual
In this short and sweet life you meet the crucial!
