The poet, Lekhnath Poudel has written beautiful poem about festivals like Dashain and Tihar. Poudel’s poem about Dashain was posted previously (watch Dashain poem video here). Before reading the poem, you might want to read about the festival and what are the five days of Tihar in this post.
To make it easy to read – roman transliteration of the poem:
Like the Dashain poem, I want to translate Tihar poem into English but, it is not that easy. Can somebody help on translating it in the comment box. I have tried the first few lines but, it doesn’t seem right.
Tihar by Lekhnath Poudel
Bringing happiness in the world
The juicy festival Tihar has arrived
As if everything is going to be ok
Everybody including king and the public
