Holi – khel to hai rangon’ gulaal’ kaa!


Mere ghar mein diyaa bujhaa’ke yah hasne waalon,
apne ghar mein shamaa roshan karne waalon,
Mere jiivban se rangg udaake,berang karke
apne ghar ko rangiin karne waalon,
ussi rang se holi khelne waalon,
mere’se hii paani apne ghar mein
nirantar upyog karne waalon,
bin paani mujhe rakhne waalon,
holi kii pichkari mein rang-paani bharne waalon,
bas nasht karke, todd-phodd karke naa jodne waalon,
itne baahaano se bharkam yah bhaari bharkam waalon,
khuudke ghar (khidkii) sheeshe’ke hain,
parr mere ghar’ke sheeshe todne’ke iraade rakhne waalon;
kab tak aise jiyoge, (jo gaddha-khaai mere liye khodaa’tha,)
ussi gaddhe, khaai mein to kabhie naa kabhi giroge,
phirr inhii yaadon se ghirke, tadpoge,
phirr khuud’se hii kaese bachoge?

Kal karenge kal karenge kahne waalon,
aap’ka to kal aaye na aaye,
kal to zaroor ayegaa;
Khilaadii jo aaj baney ho,
kal to ussi khel mein khuud hi shikaar ho jaoge…
