Holi, piya aur bhang: traditional kavita Holi ki

Holi, a colourful festival, it has many beautiful aspects, old life were not so easy and liberal as we have now a days. Earlier holi was also one of the occasion where people used to meet their love on the eve of holi and because of holi. You can find many evidences in old books and records about same. Even old movies used to give an important place to HOLI songs. How hope by now you may have recalled many old holi songs picturized in Indian Cinema.

Today, I am rather trying something on holi again but this time I am trying with braj language ie. one of the traditional language of India. I do not have any command of this language but I wrote few lines below. These lines look more like a “Traditional Song” rather than small poetry.

So what is all about?
It is actually inspired from traditional songs where mostly in holi they talk about the girls waiting for their love to come and meet them on holi. It is infact one of the favourite topic of many traditional poets.

I am not sure if I should post it here or not but reading this in english font will need lot patience and understanding. Read it in rhym and then you will enjoy it.

Bhore bhayee tab se baithi taakat rayee,
Mhare piya ab toh aye,
Mhare ko ab koun bachay haye…
Mhare piya holi khelan aye,holi khelan aye!!

Holi ki aisi saam, liya prabhu ka naam,
Mhare piya ne pila dayi mohe bhaang
Mhare ko ab koun bachay haye…
Mhare piya holi khelan aye,holi khelan aye!!
