होली – Holi

holi

ic:www.pinterest.com

पेड़ो पर नयी पत्तिया अंकुरित होते है

नन्ही कालिया खिलती है, कोयल की कूक गूंजती अम्बुआ में

नयी बहार नयी उमंगो के साथ फागुन ले आया होली की सौगात

रंगों की इंद्रधनुष सजाती है चित्र सुनहरा

मानो चित्रकार ने सारा शहर गुलाल से रंग दिया हो

होलिका दहन के साथ जला  दी बुराई , प्यार और श्रद्धा को गले लगाया

भेद भाव सब  भुला, गिलेशिकवे  सारे माफ़ कर,

हर्ष और उल्लाहस के साथ सब मिलझुल कर खेले होली

नाच, गाना, मिठाइयों के बीच , बच्चे , बूढ़े सब झूमे

पिचकारी संग भिगो या गुब्बारे

यह है त्यौहार रंगों का, खुशियो का, आओ खेले होली !

आप सब को होली ही हार्दिक शुभ कामनायें!!

 

The trees sprout new leaves, the tender buds blossom,

The cuckoo’s singing echoes in the mango orchards

With new glory and exhultaion, spring ushers in the gift of Holi

The rainbow of colours paint a beautiful picture

As if an artist has painted the town with different hues

We burn all evil with Holika dahan and embrace love and faith

The discrimination wiped clean and differences forgiven

With joy and merriment people play holi

Music, dance and sweets enjoyed by young and old

As they get drenched with pichkari* or balloons

This is a festival of colours and happiness.

Come let’s play holi!

Wishing you a Happy and Colourful Holi!
