tujhe suraj kahun ya chanda
tujhe deep kahun ya taara
mera naam karega roshan
jag men mera raaj dulaara
Should I call you sun or moon
Should I call you lamplight or stars
You’ll light up my name
In this world my darling babe …
I was watching Sony Mix and this song came up. I have heard this song in my childhood, and loved the emotion and depth of love Manna Dey put into the lyrics. That was then and this is now …
My sons are Cesarean births. I was fully conscious albeit kind of trippy for both births and I saw them being taken out of my tummy. I remember thinking it pretty symbolic when the doctor cut the umbilical cord. It, to me, symbolized that here was a baby, another person … who had his/her life to lead.
I think I led mine and built my own identity, and reputation.
It would be pathetic if all that I built and created depended on someone so much my junior to uphold or besmirch….
I can feel pride and joy in their achievements
Or shame if they transgress boundaries and err
Grieve if they get hurt
But its all about them – not me
In short – its their lives
Is it not?
