Brilliant firecrackers lighting up the night,
Diyas twinkling like stars - what a sight
This is Diwali, in all its glory,
As told to little Klaka - a magical story.
First the celebration of Prince Rama and his homecoming,
His victory over Ravana, the evil demon King.
Next a story of Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth
Who rewards her true devotees with fortune and health.
