Hum Aap k dil me rahte hain,

Isliye 4 din pahle hi ” HAPPY HOLI ” kahte hain
Holi or Phagwa, as the Guyanese better know, is celebrated by the singing of special songs calledChowtaals and by the spraying of coloured powder (abrack) and water (abeer). Children take special delight in the festival and submerge any passerby with their colourful water jets called pichkaris.
The season of Holi, starts a month before with the planting of the Holika, a castor oil plant. This plant is burnt one month later as Holika, commemorating Prahlad’s legendary devotion to Lord Shiva and also the triumph of good over evil.
Holi happens to be a national holiday in Guyana as Hindus constitute about 33 per cent of the country’s population. Guyanese living overseas make special arrangement to be with the family at the time of Holi.
Saatrang rang liye aye Holi
Gau sahar me chayi holi
Rango me dube sathi sajni
Holi hai or dhoom machi hai
Bhang ki khumari chayi hai
Tan me masti man me masti
Phagun ki masti sab or chayi hai
Makki ki Roti, Nimbu ka Aachar,
Suraj Ki Kirne, Khushiyo ki Bahar,
Chand Ki Chandi, Apno ka Pyar,
Mubarak Ho Aapko, HOLI ka Tyohar
Aise manana holi ka tyohar, Pichkari se barse sirf pyar,
Yahi mausam hai apno se gale milne ka,
To gulal lekar ho jao taiyar. Happy Holi
