Light up your heart's desire.
May the kindling of the light
Set your hopes afire.
Let the colours and lights just climb;
Let them soar ever higher.
Let your dreams never touch the dust...
May they never get lost in the mire.
To come down to humour, suddenly....
Today's lights may look like a traditional "diya",
But they need an electric wire!
Here's a photo of my kOlam, taken by a young guest of one of my neighbours ; without any inhibition, she asked if she could take a photograph....her first attempt at photography! Long may it last!
Her name is Rashmi, and a round of applause for her please!
