Bang Comes Diwali

colourful and delightful
Oil lit diyas shine subdued
spreading a graceful reverie.

The trend of the present day
 preserves a distraction, electrical
bulbs dazzle with such power.
 promulgating an ostentation.

The rich indulge in extravaganza
throw lavish party, buy costly clothes,
dine in high end restaurants,
to them millions are peanuts.

The in between engage
in similar style borrow heavily
to make the day noteworthy.
plunging them in debt.

The lower income group are in a limbo
 perceive the illumination with 

enlargement.  An undue sadness

 could be seen in their expressions.

An annual phenomenon
like the seasons, this winter
festival ordained to usher
prosperity pledges a penury.
