When he was not even born

when we even didn’t know

whether it is going to be a boy or a girl

since that time he was given the nick name ‘IBBU’

क्यों प्यारी सी है इतनी तू
क्यों न्यारी सी है इतनी तू
जब जब दिल घबराता है मेरा
तब तेरा ही याद आता है चेहरा
आ गले लगा ले माँ
आ मुझे सुला दे माँ
मेरी प्यारी माँ
मेरी न्यारी माँ

कहने को तो बहोत रिश्ते हैं
पर माँ तुझ जैसा कोई नहीं दुनिया में
लाख कोई कह दे की मुझे माँ समझ
लेकिन माँ तुझ जैसा कोई है ही नहीं
सच कहूँ तो माँ जैसा कोई बन ही नहीं सकता
क्यूंकि ममता हर एक के बस की बात नहीं

जैसे रात को दिन कह देने से दिन नहीं बन जाता
ठीक उसी तरह किसी और को माँ कह देने से कोई माँ नहीं बन जाता
सच तो यह है की माँ की जगह कोई ले ही नहीं सकता
चाहे फिर लाख आप किसी को मम्मी माँ बोल दो
लेकिन अपनी माँ सा प्यार कोई दे नहीं सकता
और न कभी दे पायेगा

You are the best..

never took any rest

always worked for us

always loved us

you have been a friend to me since childhood

You are equally known for your brotherhood

How a soul can be so gentle

And at the same time so humble.

My love can not be penned down into words.

For you are beyond words..
