Happy Holi!

The festival of colors has arrived,
All around kids blooming out of fun.
Everyone is playing with gulal,
Eternal nature with its blithesome expression.

Once again good will overpower evil,
Holika burning amidst hate and fire.
Lively crowd being over joyous,
Due to the assassination of evil power.

Gulal; red, yellow, pink, green,
The rainbow of colors.
People splashing it over each other’s face,
And hugging each other.

The sweetness of the gujiyas,
Making the festival merrier.
Every corner is tinted by the marvel of colors,
People rushing hither and thither.

I can hear the lovely Holi songs,
Playing here and there.
The kids and ladies dancing with the utmost ecstasy and cheer.

Holi celebration is so fun and frolic,
Filling the world with happiness once in a year.
The best part of the occasion is,
No one will be spared.

Holi has come once again,
Let’s play with triumph and elation.
Let’s forget all the differences,
It’s a festival of love and devotion.

I read poems. Sometimes I write poems. And when I am doing nothing, I am sipping coffee.


  1. Holi Special greetings for fellow countrymen!

    अगर मैं झूठ बोलूंगा तो गैरत मार डालेगी,
    अगर मैं सच बोलूंगा तो हुकुमत मार डालेगी।

    बहुत होशियार रहना है हिन्दू-मुस्लमां को,
    वरना लड़ाकर आपस में सियासत मार डालेगी।..
