A happy Bhai Dooj

A happy Bhai Dooj!
Grant that I May bring no tear to any eye
When this Bhai Dooj in time shall end
Let it be said I’ve played the friend, clinic
Have lived and loved and labored here,
and made of it a happy year.

The Old Year has gone

The Old Year has gone.
Let the dead past bury its own dead.
The Bhai Dooj has taken possession of the clock of time.
All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months!
Happy Bhai Dooj to you
