Holi Poem :-
Gulal – Red, Yellow, Green and countless.
A day’s canvas – a riot of colors.
Lively crowd running thither and hither,
colors of Rainbow, dashing from every nook & corner.
Disregarding their woe & despair fervent folks,
rejoicing at the wonder of colors.
A day full with gaiety and luster,
a day to smear our dreams
with a splash of vibrant frenzy colors.
Holi Hai!! A spring of limitless frolic & fun!!
