Mothers are special. They are a boy's first love and a girl's best friend forever. It's time that you let her know that she is your axis. Go beyond just a 'Happy Mother's Day' message this year and tell her that she means the world to you. Because she deserve ALL those kind and loving words.
Here are 5 songs from Punjabi and Hindi cinema that aptly define the mother-child relationship, well, in ALL the words. Just play them to your Mom and tell us that these were not the same words you always wanted to tell her:
MERI MAA MAMMA (Dasvidaniya)
Kailash Kher's voice and a happy song! A perfect combination to dedicate to your mother. Better still, take out that guitar, strum those strings and sing it to her. You will become her most favourite child, for sure.
MAA (Taare Zameen Par)
Probably, now we can call it a Classic, Taare Zameen Par's Maa is one go-to song every Mother's Day for everyone. How can you not feel connected to the lyrics "Main kabhi dikhlata nahin par andhere se darta hoon main Maa"
. Haven't we all feared loneliness, darkness once in our life and called our Emergency Number 'Mamma'?
BLESSINGS OF BEBE (Gagan Kokri)
Every single day you open your eyes, thank your Mum along with God. Take out time off your busy schedule to sit with her. Not because she needs you, but because you owe it to her for everytime she gave up on hers, for you. Her blessings are divine, Go Grab'em, Tiger!
MAA HUNDI AE MAA (Kuldeep Manak)
Nobody can take her place. That's it!
MAAVAN (Daana Paani)
The latest one in the list, Maavan sung by Harbhajan Maan is a moving rendition. However heartbreaking the story behind the song may be, it defines motherhood, the relationship of a mother-daughter, in the most soul-rendering way.
Disclaimer: Do not play if you are about to get married, coz your Mom might end up crying!
