A Holi Song1.jpg
  With your mysterious color
Your youthful laughter like morning glow
With the deep shade of your tears
Colour me my friend before you go.
May it color my heart
May it color all my efforts
May it brighten the flame of my evening lamp
And at night may it sweeten my waking hours.

Please wake me up my friend before you go
Swaying my blood
With the rhythm of your dance.
Like the stars shining at night
Like the fountains streaming from the mountain caves
Like the thunder rumbling in the bosom of the clouds
Like the rhythm of the rushing world
Please give me a swing my friend before you go.
Please remove all my bondage and sorrows
And inspire me to go forward my friend before you go.

Translation of the famous song - Rangiye diye jao jao jaogo ebar jabar age - by Rabindranath Tagore. It is sung in a chorus in conclusion of the holi festival (the Indian spring festival of color).  The original is at
