Disambar mein hui ladki-dikhaee,
Janvari mein ho gayi uss sey sagai.
Farvari mein kaha : March mein tum sang
Khoob kheloonga Holi.
Woh kuchch sharmaee,par kuchch naa boli,
Meri pichkaari aur gubbaarrey,
Reh gaye ek kinaarey,
Kyon ki Holi se pehley,
Woh kissi aur ki ho lee !!
Green chillies,
Red tomatoes,
Orange carrots
Purple turnips,
White raddish,
Yellow papaya,
-Holi ka salaad  !!
Boy tells girl I love your pink cheeks,
How I wish I too had such lovely cheeks.
Girl thought for a minute or two.
OK, here’s a remedy for you,
She gave the boy two hard slaps
Why Oh Why, asked the poor chap,
“Wishing  You a Happy Holi too,
Now you too have pink cheeks two ” !!
Husband wished to play Holi
With his neighbour’s wife !
He sang :”Mohe Rang De…
Rang De,Rang De,Mohe Rang De..”
His wife turned green with envy
Red with anger and said :
Buri Nazar Waaley,Aa Rang Doon,
Rang Doon,Rang Doon……
Tera Moonh Kala !!”

    Dear Ateyaji, Thanks for your prompt response. I have tried to convey four colourful situations of Holi and if they they have tickled the readers, the purpose is served. Holi is tradionally a festival meant to bond with nature and enjoy its bounties. “Hasya Kavi Sammelans”, “Moorkha Sammelans” etc are held in many parts of the country, specially this side. These are meant for 100% tax free enjoyment and brains are to be kept motgaged with banks and not carried to the sammelans. So,E..N..J.O..Y..!!

    Dear Mallickji, Thanks for your Holi wishes. Another favourite song of mine is: “Rang Barse, Bheegey Chunnar Waali, Rang Barsey…” I heartily reciprocate your wishes.

    Let me add another Holi fav to this list (actress of yore Sandhya in Navrang):

    “Aare ja re hat natkhat

    Na choo re mere ghoonghat

    Palat ke dungi aaj aise gaali re

    Mujhe samjho na tum bholi bhali re..”

    Jitoo Sir,
    Cool ! Enjoyed it and laughed and laughed. Very humorous. How did you get this idea? How did you form these short pranks? I am sure your have framed another 2 or 3 more after posting these. Your humour is a very precious treasure that can tickle thousands of nerves. Can there be one on doctors and patients? Please try. I shall enjoy reading that. I wish you and your family a very Happy Holi. Best regards.

    Aaj jab aap rangeen ho jayenge,holi ke nashe me kho jayenge, bas ek bar hame yaad kijiyega, hum rang ban ke aapki khushiyo me shareek ho jayenge. Happy Holi to you and your family

    sir, many wishes for holi. i have been staying in jalvayu vihar for the last three years. It is a society of navy and airforce personnels who have a penchant for celebrating occassions with grandeur. however, this time round, the whole gaiety associated with holi was sadely missing. At 9 in the morning, there were hardly two or three groups of 7-8 children fully equipped with their latest designs of pichhkaris -(hooked with twin cylinders filled with colored water and slung like a backpack) searching in vain for a victim…….. there hardly were any. they drenched some mongrels…… a maid or two……..some guards on duty and left thorougly disappointed. how we used to celebrate holi in our small towns. Making variety of papads, sweets, gujiyas, matthis etc with mom was such a joy….and holi used to be such a colourful occasion……….so o o many visitors…….singing holi songs…..dancing…. ….embracing……….laughing……….. the whole atmosphere used to be so electrifying……..where is this fervour lost. nobody visits anybody….not even next door neighbours. my small daughter filled her small bucket of water, added colour to it … took it to the terrace and was throughly enjoying herself sprinkling the water with her hands… with her small watergun and she was probably the only child in the terrace amongst a big cluster of high rises……..no company……. except her parents………… how she will know what a true holi spirit is like………will she ever get to experience it……… yes…..probably when her parents will get posted in a small town.
    read your poems. third one was very good. keep writing and keep us regaled. regards jaya

    Aapne tau Holi ko bhi ….Rang Di….

    Holi is a long way away; Magar sab tyohar ke liye
    Phool khilte rahein aapki zindagi ki rahon mei
    Hasi chamkti rahein aapki nigahon mei
    kadam kadam par khushi mile aapko
    Yeh shubh kaamna hai hamari aapko !!

    Keep reminding us of life being a celebration.
