The Spirit of Holi

Aao khere Hori mitwa
Aao khelein holi

Rang uthao
Choonar bheejaao
Mal mal gulaal lagaao
San jaane do apne rang me
Aise rang lagaao
Ki bhooloon main pane dhang

Aise man mein mil jaane do
Aur charhe na bhang
Mil jaavein aise hum
Jaise rang mein rang
Tera rang mujhe chadhe
Mera tore ang

Is holi rang aisa charhe
Sabhi reh jaanven dang
Udoon gulaal main banke aaj
Banoon jal mein tarang
Ghul jaaoon tujh hi mein
Doob jaaoon tere sang

Aisi hori kheliyo
Aaj rahe na kal
Ek dooje mein bane rahein
Aage barhe na pal
Khel sada khilta rahe
Na hone paaye ojhal

aur:
Aisi hori khelein mitwa
Mit jaaeye man se baer
ghul mil rahein sab sang
Jaise mil jaate holi ke rang
Khushaali aur barkat howe
Badhe sab khair

Translation:

Aao khere Hori mitwa
Aao khelein holi

Come, let us play holi, my friend
Come let us play Holi

Rang uthao
Choonar bheejaao
Mal mal gulaal lagaao
San jaane do apne rang me
Aise rang lagaao
Ki bhooloon main pane dhang

Pick up the colours
Drench my scarf
Rub the powedered colours in
Let me be immersed in your colours
Apply the colours in such a way
That I forget my ways

Aise man mein mil jaane do
Aur charhe na bhang
Mil jaavein aise hum
Jaise rang mein rang
Tera rang mujhe chadhe
Mera tore ang

Let our hearts meet so close
That no other intoxicant can rise
Let us come together as
Colour mixes with colour
Let your colour rise on me
And mine on your parts

Is holi rang aisa charhe
Sabhi reh jaanven dang
Udoon gulaal main banke aaj
Banoon jal mein tarang
Ghul jaaoon tujh hi mein
Doob jaaoon tere sang

This holi let the colour rise so
That everyone is surprised
Let me fly like the powdered colour
Let me be the ripple in the water
Let me mix in you alone
Let me drown with you

Aisi hori kheliyo
Aaj rahe na kal
Ek dooje mein bane rahein
Aage barhe na pal
Khel sada khilta rahe
Na hone paaye ojhal

Play Holi in such a way
That there be no today nor morrow
We stay (engrossed) in each other
Let time not move on
Let the play always bloom for us
Let it never become faint or dull

General:

Aisi hori khelein mitwa
Mit jaaeye man se baer
ghul mil rahein sab sang
Jaise mil jaate holi ke rang
Khushaali aur barkat howe
Badhti rahi sab khair

Let us play such a holi my friend
That erases barriers in our heart
Let all of us live together in unison
Like the colours of holi come together
Let there be prosperity and growth
And let welfare keep improving
