Rakhi Poems in Hindi – हिन्दी राखी कवितायें

Rakhi Poeams in Hindi and EnglishThe below rakhi poem in Hindi is actually a song from the Hindi film ‘Resham ki Dori’ meaning ‘the silk thread’ which represents a rakhi. This song which is sung by a sister for her brother truly depicts the immense love which exists between a sister and her brother.

बहना ने भाई की कलाई से प्यार बाँधा है, प्यार के दो तार से संसार बाँधा है।

रेशम की डोरी से, रेशम की डोरी से, रेशम की डोरी से संसार बाँधा है।

सुन्दरता मे जो कन्हैया है, ममता मे जो यशोदा मैया है,

वो और नही दूजा कोई, वो तो मेरा राजा भैया है।

मेरा फूल है तू, तलवार है तू, मेरी लाज का पहरेदार है तू,

मैं अकेली कहाँ इस दुनिया मे, मेरा सारा सँसार है तू।

हमे दूर भले किस्मत कर दे, अपने मन से ना जुदा करना,

सावन के पावन दिन भैया, बहना को याद किया करना।


There is yet another poem in form of a Hindi song from the film ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ which has almost become an anthem like song for all brothers and sisters who love to hum this song often even if it is not Raksha Bandhan. Unlike the above poetic song which is sung by sister for a brother, the below song is sung by a brother for her sister.

फूलों का तारों का, सबका कहना है।

एक हज़ारों मे, मेरी बहना है।

सारी उमर हमे संग रहना है।

फूलों का तारों का, सबका कहना है।

भोलीभाली जापानी गुड़िया जैसी तू,

प्यारी प्यारी जादू की पुड़िया जैसी तू।

डैडी का मम्मी का सबका कहना है,

एक हज़ारों मे, मेरी बहना है।

सारी उमर हमे संग रहना है।

ये ना जाना दुनिया ने तू है क्यूँ उदास,

तेरी प्यारी आँखों मे प्यार की है प्यास।

आ मेरे पास आ, कह जो कहना है,

एक हज़ारों मे, मेरी बहना है।

सारी उमर हमे संग रहना है।

जब से मेरी आँखों से हो गयी तू दूर,

तब से मेरे जीवन के सपने हैं चूर।

आँखों मे नींद ना दिल मे चैना है,

एक हज़ारों मे, मेरी बहना है।

सारी उमर हमे संग रहना है।

देखो हम तुम दोनो हैं इक डाली के फूल,

मै ना भूला तू कैसे मुझको गयी भूल।

आ मेरे पास आ, कह जो कहना है,

एक हज़ारों मे, मेरी बहना है।

सारी उमर हमे संग रहना है।

फूलों का तारों का, सबका कहना है।

-Anand Bakshi

Rakhi Poem by a Kid


Rakhi Poems in English

APJ Abdul Kalam, a distinguished scientist from India who went on to become the most popular President of Indian Republic, is also a great writer and poet. He has written a very touching poem for Rakhi day which is given below.

Rakhi Day is Righteous Day

This full moon day our hearts are in brim

Feeling of faith and serenity in mind.

We light the lamps and our hears glow

Radiance of happiness and peace are in flow.

Harmonious homes are like streams of joy

Flowing and flourishing the landscape en route.

Nobility in heart and character in deed

Righteous homes alone make a beautiful State.

Sisters will tie the thread on the brothers

Abiding them to do only what is right and clean.

Put the Kumkum and blessed rice on the head

Where will dwell right thoughts and noble action.

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Ann Stareyes is one of the modern times poet whose poems, quotes etc. are just loved by the younger generation. She has written a beautiful poem on sibling love and affection in 2005. Although this poem tells about the relation of the poet with her siblings, anyone can relate to the depth of connection that is shared by each brother and sister.

Sibling Love

Growing up as kids we were blessed

To have come from a loving home

Parents that guided and loved us

And never did us wrong.

We had a beautiful childhood

Many memories we all hold

We’ve always had that sibling bond

That’s more precious than gold.

Mom and Dad had it hard

Raising six kids way back then

But we never went hungry or unclothed

And their love was Heaven sent.

I’m thankful that we were loved

Something money could never buy

This was the richness that filled our hearts

Because Mom and Dad always tried.

Now as I’m getting older

I’ve learnt to appreciate things much more

I’m thankful we loved each other

And each one of you I adore.

Today I want to say to each of you

I Love You with my whole heart

I’ll Love You beyond this lifetime

And my love will never stop.

-Ann Stareyes

Bruce B. Wilmer is one of the poets whose writings can make any greeting card feel special. Wilmer has written a lovely poem about sisters which can be quoted by any brother on the special occasion of Raksha bandhan to make his sister feel special than ever told before.

A Sister is Forever

A sister’s a sister forever

A bond that diminishes never

A friend who is kindly and caring

A sibling God chooses for sharing.

Few ties as deep and profound

And with so much affection abound

Though some thoughts are seldom expressed

Love endures and survives every test.

Of the constants that rest in the heart

A sister’s a primary part.

She’ll always be there when you need her

You listen, you value, you heed her.

As growth independence you ponder

Your feelings grow deeper and fonder

And life tells you one thing that is true

A sister’s a large part of you.

– Bruce B. Wilmer

Holding Hands

Brother and sister,

together as friends,

ready to face

whatever life sends.

Joy and laughter

or tears and strife,

holding hands tightly

as we dance through life.
