Many poems and songs have been written dedicated to Hindu new year. A beautiful poem we can see here below:

A New Year Poem :
Harbingers of happiness, awake! And dreams abandoned, return from restless sleep!
Past hopes, whom bitter wanderers forsake, Promise once again what will might reap!
Years turn and turn, at each new turn reborn, New imagined by redeemers new,
Each in turn vouchsafed a festive dawn, Wind driven towards a sky of darker hue.
Yearning is of innocence a cause, Embracing with delight what ought to be,
As once a year even truth takes pause, Reflecting on what other eyes might see.

New Year Message :
With all the Rose’s Perfume and with all the lights in the world and with all the children smiles. I Wish U that your all dreams come true.
