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 !

Makar Sankranti 2020, Makar Sankranti Date 2020

When is Makar Sankranti 2020?

Makar Sankranti is on 15th January(Tuesday), 2020.

Makar Sankranti Punya Kaal Muhurta (Time) - 07:19 AM to 5:42 PM
Makar Sankranti Mahapunya Kaal Muhurta (Time) - 07:19 to 09:03

Makar Sankranti Punya Kaal and Mahapunya Kaal Time are highly auspicious timings to perform good deeds like offering water and food to sun god, taking bath in the holy river Ganga, feeding and offering food to the needy etc. Mahapunya Kaal time is preferred more than Punya Kaal time.

Makar Sankranti is a very auspicious day in Hindu mythology. Also known by the names Makara Sankranti, Makarasankranti and Makar Sankrant, the festival is of high imortance because of the shifting of the Sun (Surya) into ‘Makara rashi’ – the zodiac sign which relates to Capricorn. When sun goes from one sun sign and enters another, it is known by the name of ‘Sankranti.’ The word "Sankranti" in Sanskrit means ‘to cross into’. Thus, Makar Sankranti is the day when sun enters into the Makar rashi or the Capricorn sign. On this day of Makar Sankranti, sun enters into the Northern Hemisphere, it is called as Uttarayana. This Uttarayan festival of Gujarat starts on the Makar Sankranti day and continues for six-month long.

Makara Sankranti is observed in the Hindu month of Paush in North India, Magh in Bengal, Dhanu in Kerala and Margazhi in Tamil Nadu.

Makar Sankranti falls on the January 14th or January 15th every year but slowly this day of Sankrant is moving and Makar Sankranti will occur on 23rd March in 7015, around 5000 years from now. Hindu calendar follows lunar calendar, meaning it is based on the moon.

Significance/Importance of Makar Sankranti


Of the 12 Sankranti's in the Hindu Calendar year, Makar Sankranti is the most important Sankrant among all and holds a lot of spiritual significance and importance for Hindus. Surya or Sun God is worshiped on this day of Makar Sankranti. People chant the Gayatri Mantra, Surya Mantra and other mantra's while offering water to Surya god.

The coming of Makar Sankranti indicates the coming up of spring season in the northern hemisphere and the end of winter season. This time is highly auspicious and is known as Uttarayan Punyakalam. The six months after Makar Sankranti, are longer and warmer.

Makara Sankranti has also a different meaning. ‘Makar’ refers to crocodile and Sankranti means ‘to change.’ The crocodile is the materialistic world and ‘Sankranti’ is when there the time comes to get away from the materialistic world.

Uttarayana is the six month long festival that starts on the Makar Sankranti day. Uttarayana is referred to as the daytime of the Devas and that is why auspicious activities starts during this time.

The importance of Makara Sankranti also lies in the fact that Bhishma Pitamaha of Mahabharata died on this day of Uttarayan as Bhisma Pitamah had a boon that he will die only when he wishes. So, he choose this day of Uttarayana. It is of the belief that people who die during Uttarayana merges with the God, thus ending the cycle of rebirth.

It is also understood that Lord Vishnu buried Asuras under the Mandara Mountain on this Uttaryana day signifying the end of evil. On the next day of Makar Sankrant, Krishna is worshipped in South India as there is a belief that Krishna lifted the Govardhan mountain on the day after the Makar Sankrant.

King Bhageeratha brought down river Ganga into Patala on Makara Sankranti day to get moksha or salvation for his ancestors. Makara Sankranti is also one of the important bathing dates during Kumbh Mela and Magh Mela and lakhs of people take bath in the Ganges river.

According to Puranas, on this Makar Sankranti date, God Surya visits Shani, who is the son of Surya.

Things to do on Makar Sankranthi Day?


As Makara Sankranti is the festival associated with Surya, people must offer water to Surya and recite the Gayatri Mantra and/or Surya Mantra's. As Surya visits his son Shani on Makar Sankranti day, people must visit their sons and give them gifts, if possible. Pople must make a fresh begining on this day and forget any misunderstandings if any. People make ‘khichadi’ on this day. Some make Til sweets and dishes and Rice meal.

Makar Sankrati is a festival associated with harvest in the whole of India. So people pray for a good harvest. Cows are worshipped and people do charity work like offering food, Moong Dal, rice, ghee, Til etc.to poor persons and needy.

Amla Navami Date, Akshaya Navami Date

Amla Navami Date, Akshaya Navami Date


Akshaya Navami (अक्षय नवमी) is observed on Shukla Navami day (two days before Dev Uthani Ekadashi) in Hindu Kartik month. Akshaya Navami is regarded as the day when Satya Yuga began. Thus Akshaya Navami day is also known as Satya Yugadi. On this day of Akshaya Navami, it is of great significance to carry all sorts of Daan-Punya deeds. The name "Akshaya" itself means never diminish or would remain forever.Thus doing any charitable or devotional activities on Akshaya Navami day is believed that it would never diminish and benefit the person not only in this life but also in future births.

Akshaya Navami day is as important as Akshaya Tritiya 2019. Akshaya Tritiya is the day when Treta Yuga began and Akshaya Navami is the day when Satya Yuga began.

Parikrama of Mathura-Vrindavan on the Akshaya Navami day is considered very auspicious. Devotees in large numbers come and do parikrama of Mathura-Vrindavan to earn the maximum and never ending Punya on the auspicious day of Satyuga.

Amla tree is worshipped as it regarded as the abode of all Gods and Goddesses. Amla is very dear to Sri Vishnu and on this day of Amla Navami, Lakshmi and Vishnu are worshipped. As Amla tree is worshipped on the auspicious day of Akshaya Navami, the day of Akshaya Navami is also known by the name of Amla Navami (आंवला नवमी). Jagaddhatri Puja is observed on this day in West Bengal.


Do you know how the Amla Tree was born?

When the whole earth was completely in water and there was no life, then Sri Brahma sitting on a lotus flower was deeply immersed in doing austerity for the supreme lord. At this point of time, tears fell from the eyes of Brahma out of the love for the Supreme lord. It is then from these tears Amla tree was born.

What you must do on Amla Navami Day/Akshaya Navami Day?

  • You must, if possible, bath in the river Ganges(Ganga) or use some water from the river Ganga while bathing.
  • You must eat Amla on Amla Navami and also donate some to the needy or in the temple. If you eat Amla on a daily basis, you get a long and healthy life.


Amla Navami Legend


A Chandala came into a forest for hunting birds and deers. While he was searching for them, he felt hungry. He saw an Amla tree and plucked some Amla and ate them. When he climbed down, he fell and died. When Yamraj’s attendants came to take away his soul, they could not do so. Yamraj was astonished by this and asked for help from sages. They enlightened him and said that they could not take Chandala’s soul with them as he had eaten Amla just before he died.

Akshaya Navami is also observed as ‘Kushmanda Navami.’ As per one legend, Lord Vishnu defeated the demon named ‘Kushmanda’ and stopped the spread of Adharma on this day.

Karva Chauth Vrat Katha in Hindi

बहुत समय पहले इन्द्रप्रस्थपुर के एक शहर में वेदशर्मा नाम का एक ब्राह्मण रहता था। वेदशर्मा का विवाह लीलावती से हुआ था जिससे उसके सात महान पुत्र और वीरावती नाम की एक गुणवान पुत्री थी। क्योंकि सात भाईयों की वह केवल एक अकेली बहन थी जिसके कारण वह अपने माता-पिता के साथ-साथ अपने भाईयों की भी लाड़ली थी।

जब वह विवाह के लायक हो गयी तब उसकी शादी एक उचित ब्राह्मण युवक से हुई। शादी के बाद वीरावती जब अपने माता-पिता के यहाँ थी तब उसने अपनी भाभियों के साथ पति की लम्बी आयु के लिए करवा चौथ का व्रत रखा। करवा चौथ के व्रत के दौरान वीरावती को भूख सहन नहीं हुई और कमजोरी के कारण वह मूर्छित होकर जमीन पर गिर गई।

सभी भाईयों से उनकी प्यारी बहन की दयनीय स्थिति सहन नहीं हो पा रही थी। वे जानते थे वीरावती जो कि एक पतिव्रता नारी है चन्द्रमा के दर्शन किये बिना भोजन ग्रहण नहीं करेगी चाहे उसके प्राण ही क्यों ना निकल जायें। सभी भाईयों ने मिलकर एक योजना बनाई जिससे उनकी बहन भोजन ग्रहण कर ले। उनमें से एक भाई कुछ दूर वट के वृक्ष पर हाथ में छलनी और दीपक लेकर चढ़ गया। जब वीरावती मूर्छित अवस्था से जागी तो उसके बाकी सभी भाईयों ने उससे कहा कि चन्द्रोदय हो गया है और उसे छत पर चन्द्रमा के दर्शन कराने ले आये। वीरावती ने कुछ दूर वट के वृक्ष पर छलनी के पीछे दीपक को देख विश्वास कर लिया कि चन्द्रमा वृक्ष के पीछे निकल आया है। अपनी भूख से व्याकुल वीरावती ने शीघ्र ही दीपक को चन्द्रमा समझ अर्घ अर्पण कर अपने व्रत को तोड़ा। वीरावती ने जब भोजन करना प्रारम्भ किया तो उसे अशुभ संकेत मिलने लगे। पहले कौर में उसे बाल मिला, दुसरें में उसे छींक आई और तीसरे कौर में उसे अपने ससुराल वालों से निमंत्रण मिला। पहली बार अपने ससुराल पहुँचने के बाद उसने अपने पति के मृत शरीर को पाया।

अपने पति के मृत शरीर को देखकर वीरावती रोने लगी और करवा चौथ के व्रत के दौरान अपनी किसी भूल के लिए खुद को दोषी ठहराने लगी। वह विलाप करने लगी। उसका विलाप सुनकर देवी इन्द्राणी जो कि इन्द्र देवता की पत्नी है, वीरावती को सान्त्वना देने के लिए पहुँची।

वीरावती ने देवी इन्द्राणी से पूछा कि करवा चौथ के दिन ही उसके पति की मृत्यु क्यों हुई और अपने पति को जीवित करने की वह देवी इन्द्राणी से विनती करने लगी। वीरावती का दुःख देखकर देवी इन्द्राणी ने उससे कहा कि उसने चन्द्रमा को अर्घ अर्पण किये बिना ही व्रत को तोड़ा था जिसके कारण उसके पति की असामयिक मृत्यु हो गई। देवी इन्द्राणी ने वीरावती को करवा चौथ के व्रत के साथ-साथ पूरे साल में हर माह की चौथ को व्रत करने की सलाह दी और उसे आश्वासित किया कि ऐसा करने से उसका पति जीवित लौट आएगा।

इसके बाद वीरावती सभी धार्मिक कृत्यों और मासिक उपवास को पूरे विश्वास के साथ करती। अन्त में उन सभी व्रतों से मिले पुण्य के कारण वीरावती को उसका पति पुनः प्राप्त हो गया।
