To all who are celebrating Diwali,
the festival of lights ;
A celebration of triumph
of light over darkness and good over evil,
A festival where thousands of oil lamps 
will be illuminated throughout the night;
May the light of hope be there
when we seek it in our darkest hours;
May the light of faith be seen with our hearts 
even when our eyes see only darkness;
Let us shine and share this beautiful light
with those around us;
Wishing you delightful moments and
overflowing joy this Diwali and always!

Arch of Hope – NBC

Sometimes life’s tribulations seem like
the series of a raging tempest
and we begin to see life in black and white.
At such moments,
let us ponder upon the beautiful rainbow.
The mystical circular splendour
that appears in the sky after a raging storm.
This magical rainbow is a sign from above
that these trying times would soon be gone.
The colourful energy of positivity and joy 
shall then be refreshed in our lives.
And may we in return radiate
the amazing arch of hope 
in someone else’s life.

World Peace & Harmony

Remembering 9/11

World Peace & Harmony

– Shyamli Suneesh
Peace is glory, peace is dignity,
peace is love and peace is amity.

Birds fly freely high up in the blue sky,
Flowers bloom and cherish when spring arrives.
Dews settle on leaves with deliberate happiness,
As bees buzz excited around their hives.

Why aren’t we as happy as they are?
So free, so elated
and no complaints at all.
Take the morning paper in your hand 
and you’d find destruction all over land,
going around in evil bands 
making peace and harmony banned.
War, conflict and destruction everywhere
arresting our accord even while asleep 
Oh! God now is so very rare
And is peace today that hard to keep?
People are killed 
every now and then.
Oh! Isn’t there anyone who’s skilled,
to place the eminent gem
of tranquility and unity.
I woke up today morning,
to enjoy Mother Breeze.
She says if we’d stop roaring
and take everything with ease,
we’d surely succeed in gaining world peace
As trees and flowers sway
and the wind runs over my face
It brings in a new ray of hope
that world peace can still return
“May the World Live in Peace and Harmony”

And reminiscing the simple things
