BT003 Amma Tell Me About Diwali!, by Bhakti Mathur – paperback
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.
