RITUYON KEE RAANI( Hindi poem on Vasant Panchami/Basant Panchami)


धरा पे छाई है हरियाली
खिल गई हर इक डाली डाली
नव पल्लव नव कोपल फुटती
मानो कुदरत भी है हँस दी

छाई हरियाली उपवन मे
और छाई मस्ती भी पवन मे
उडते पक्षी नीलगगन मे
नई उमन्ग छाई हर मन मे

लाल गुलाबी पीले फूल
खिले शीतल नदिया के कूल
हँस दी है नन्ही सी कलियाँ
भर गई है बच्चो से गलियाँ

देखो नभ मे उडते पतन्ग
भरते नीलगगन मे रन्ग
देखो यह बसन्त मसतानी
आ गई है ऋतुओ की रानी

Hokar Magan Aaya Hai Basant
Short Hindi Poem for Basant Panchami Festival by Vivel Hirde


Hokar Magan Aaya Hai Basantगाओ सखी होकर मगन आया है वसंत
राजा है ये ऋतुओं का आनंद है अनंत।

पीत सोन वस्त्रों से सजी है आज धरती
आंचल में अपने सौंधी-सौंधी गंध भरती।

तुम भी सखी पीत परिधानों में लजाना,
नृत्य करके होकर मगन प्रियतम को रिझाना।

सीख लो इस ऋतु में क्या है प्रेम मंत्र
गाओ सखी होकर मगन आया है वसंत।

राजा है ऋतुओं का आनंद है अनंत
गाओ सखी होकर मगन आया है वसंत।

नील पीत वातायन में तेजस प्रखर भास्कर
स्वर्ण अमर गंगा से बागों और खेतों को रंगकर।

स्वर्ग सा गजब अद्भुत नजारा बिखेरकर
लौट रहे सप्त अश्वों के रथ में बैठकर।

हो न कभी इस मोहक मौसम का अंत
गाओ सखी होकर मगन आया है वसंत।

राजा है ऋतुओं का आनंद है अनंत
गाओ सखी होकर मगन आया है वसंत।

Chali Chali Re Patang


This song/Hindi Poem is from the Bhabhi Hindi urdu film directed by R Krishnan Raju and S Panju in 1957 starring Balraj Sahni, Pandari Bai, Nanda.


चली-चली रे पतंग मेरी चली रे..
चली बादलो के पार हो के डोर पे सवार
साड़ी दुनिया ये देख-देख जली रे
चली-चली रे पतंग ...

यू मस्त हवा मे लहराए जैसे उड़न खटोला उदा जाए..
ले के मन मे लगन जैसे कोई दुल्हन..
चली जाए सावरिया की गली रे
चली-चली रे पतंग ...

रंग मेरी पतंग का धानी है ये नील गगन की रानी..
बांकी बांकी है उड़ान है उम्र भी जवान
लागे पतली कमर बड़ी भली रे
चली-चली रे पतंग ...

छूना मत देख अकेली है साथ मे डोर सहेली..
है ये बिजली की धार बड़ी तेज़ है कतार
देगी काट के रख दिलजली रे
चली-चली रे पतंग ...

Veeron Ka Kaisa Ho Vasant - Basant Panchami Hindi poem


Here we provide classic Basant Panchami Hindi poem by Subhadra Kumari Chauhan
Subhadra Kumari Chauhan wrote mainly about Hindi poems on Veer Ras. Famous composition is Jhansi Ki Rani by Subhadra Kumari Chauhan.

आ रही हिमालय से पुकार
है उदधि गरजता बार बार
प्राची पश्चिम भू नभ अपार;
सब पूछ रहें हैं दिग-दिगन्त
वीरों का कैसा हो वसंत

फूली सरसों ने दिया रंग
मधु लेकर आ पहुंचा अनंग
वधु वसुधा पुलकित अंग अंग;
है वीर देश में किन्तु कंत
वीरों का कैसा हो वसंत

भर रही कोकिला इधर तान
मारू बाजे पर उधर गान
है रंग और रण का विधान;
मिलने को आए आदि अंत
वीरों का कैसा हो वसंत

गलबाहें हों या कृपाण
चलचितवन हो या धनुषबाण
हो रसविलास या दलितत्राण;
अब यही समस्या है दुरंत
वीरों का कैसा हो वसंत

कह दे अतीत अब मौन त्याग
लंके तुझमें क्यों लगी आग
ऐ कुरुक्षेत्र अब जाग जाग;
बतला अपने अनुभव अनंत
वीरों का कैसा हो वसंत

हल्दीघाटी के शिला खण्ड
ऐ दुर्ग सिंहगढ़ के प्रचंड
राणा ताना का कर घमंड;
दो जगा आज स्मृतियां ज्वलंत
वीरों का कैसा हो वसंत

भूषण अथवा कवि चंद नहीं
बिजली भर दे वह छन्द नहीं
है कलम बंधी स्वच्छंद नहीं;
फिर हमें बताए कौन हन्त
वीरों का कैसा हो वसंत

Rituon ki ritu Basant- Hindi Poem on Basant Panchami


This Poem on Basant Panchami is written by Sumitranandan Pant. A famous hindi poet, he wrote mostly in Sanskritized Hindi

फिर वसंत की आत्मा आई,
मिटे प्रतीक्षा के दुर्वह क्षण,
अभिवादन करता भू का मन !
दीप्त दिशाओं के वातायन,
प्रीति सांस-सा मलय समीरण,
चंचल नील, नवल भू यौवन,
फिर वसंत की आत्मा आई,
आम्र मौर में गूंथ स्वर्ण कण,
किंशुक को कर ज्वाल वसन तन !
देख चुका मन कितने पतझर,
ग्रीष्म शरद, हिम पावस सुंदर,
ऋतुओं की ऋतु यह कुसुमाकर,
फिर वसंत की आत्मा आई,
विरह मिलन के खुले प्रीति व्रण,
स्वप्नों से शोभा प्ररोह मन !
सब युग सब ऋतु थीं आयोजन,
तुम आओगी वे थीं साधन,
तुम्हें भूल कटते ही कब क्षण?
फिर वसंत की आत्मा आई,
देव, हुआ फिर नवल युगागम,
स्वर्ग धरा का सफल समागम !

Putrada Ekadashi 2016, Putrada Ekadasi

Putrada Ekadashi 2016, Putrada Ekadasi


Pausha Putrada Ekadashi 2016 Date is January 20 (Wednesday). Paush Ekadashi also known as Pausha Putrada Ekadashi and Putrada Ekadashi, is one of the important fast that is observed by devotee Hindus. Putrada Ekadashi is being observed so that they are blessed with a child. A child could be a male child or girl child. As all other ekadashi's, this pausha putra ekadashi is also dedicated to his highness Vishnu God. People who observe fast visit Vishnu temples in large numbers.

Putrada Ekadashi Meaning


Putrada in Sanskrit means “giver of son” means the couple or men/women who fast on this auspicious day of Lord Vishnu are blessed with a child or son. Childless couples fast on this special day so that they are blessed with a son and become proud parents or get the santaan sukh. The Putrada Ekadashi that comes in the month of January usually comes in the month of Pausha and thus called Pausha Putrada Ekadashi. There is also a Putrada Ekadashi that comes in the month of Shravana during July/August and thus known as Shravana Putrada Ekadashi. Both of these ekadashi's come in the Shukla paksh of Hindu calendar.

Putrada Ekadashi Fasting


Newly married couples are advised to fast on this day of Putrada Ekadasi and dedicate the whole day worshipping Vishnu God. As traditionally if blessed with a son is considered the blessing of the God as the son can perform various rites and is understood to take forward the name of his father and ancestors. This vrat is being observed by people who want to have a son since ages. But now the times have changed and childless couples want to have a son as well as a daughter or any of them.

Bhavishya Purana also mention about Putrada Ekadashi. Lord Krishna narrated King Yudhishthira about the ekadashi that all Hindus must observe the Ekadashi fast with deep respect and devotion to Vishnu God and surrender themselves to him, this will help in achieving salvation or moksha.

Importance of Putrada Ekadashi


Shri Krishna tells of Ekadashi Vratam in Narada Purana like this :

अश्वमेधसहस्राणिराजसूयशतानिच।  एकादश्युपवासस्यकलांनार्हन्तिशोडशीम्।। 

It means that not even thousand Ashvamedha Yagas or hundred Raja Suya Yagas could match the Ekadashi fast.

Legend of Pausha Putrada Ekadashi


There is a story available of Suketuman and his queen Shaibya. Both of them left for the forest extremely saddened by the lack of progeny. They come at Lake Manasarovar and visit one of seer's ashram on the day of Putrada Ekadashi. After getting the divine blessings of seers, the couple came back to Bhadravati. Fasting on the day of Putrada Ekadshi as advised by sages, the couple soon are blessed with a baby boy. So, the importance of Putrada Ekadashi is clearly visible. Therefore every childless couple or newly married couples must observe this putrada ekadashi vrat or fast.

Shravan Putrada Ekadashi date is August 14, 2016. In North India, Shravan month Putrada Ekadasi is also known as Pavitra Ekadasi or Pavitropana Ekadashi.
