Placed lights everywhere and all around,
The famed pushpaka soon to hit the ground.
Having been sent away for fourteen years,
Shri Rama has come back to allay our fears.
Of His struggles and triumph we have heard,
With news of his arrival our emotions now stirred.
To welcome Him let’s put more lights than can be seen,
In this darkest night of the year let Ayodhya gleam.
Destroyer of darkness, our Lord is the true light,
His return to our company to be most glorious sight.
