Prompt  ….

Keerti a budding vocalist and winner of Indian Idol struggled in the Indian film industry without success.
His manager advised him to perform on Kartick-Poornima  during the Deep Daan on the bank of Ganga at Hardwar in the foot hills of Himalaya.
The crowd that had come for the Ganga-aarti and ritualistic worship enjoyed the pleasant diversion. His concert was much appreciated and was highlighted in the media.  Soon he was a celebrity.
The darkness waits for a ray of light eternally but occasionally it goes out to find the photon that may release it from itself.
Words ~ 97
Kartik-Poornima – Full moon in Hindu month of Kartik (generally falls in November). Shiva  killed a demon named Tripuri on this day and hence, it is known as Tripuri-Purnima.  There is a tradition of taking a bath in Ganga and donating lamps on this day – it is believed that this fulfills all human desires.
Ganga-aarti – Offering of light to River Ganga.

Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.
