Happy Lohri 


 डे बाई डे तेरी खुशियां हो जाएं डबल,
तेरी जिंदगी से डिलीट हो जाएं सारे ट्रबल,
खुदा रखे हमेशा तुझे स्मार्ट और फिट,
दुआ करते हैँ कि ..
 तेरी लिए ये लोहड़ी का त्यौहार हो सुपर डुपर हिट।।


मूंगफली दी खुशबू ते गुर: दी मिठास,
मक्की दी रोटी ते सरसों दा साग,
दिल दी खुंशी ते आपनों दा प्यार,
मुबारक होवे तुहानूं लोहड़ी दा त्यौहार ||


गन्ने दे रस तों चिन्नी दी बोरी
फेर बनी उस्तों मिट्ठी मिट्ठी रेवरी
रल मिल सारे खइया तिल दे नाल
ते मनिये अस्सी खुशियां भरी लोहरी
