chhoti diwali hindi poem

This is the king of festivals
celebrated for five days
today is our chhoti diwali
Tells the story of Narkachodas
Narakasura was a demon
was that mighty eater
The ruler who made Indra the victory
His terror was all around
when the crisis comes
god save us
This time Krishna’s Leela went on
Laughing killed Narakasura
Ever since this day was celebrated
Who till today is called Narka Chodas
