Maa- My First Expert


“Maa, meri maa, pyaari maa.. mumma
Ho.. Maa, meri maa, pyaari maa.. mumma 

Haatho ki laqeerein badal jaayengi
Gham ki ye zanjeerein pighal jaayengi
Ho Khuda pe bhi asar
Tu duaao'n ka hai ghar
Meri maa, meri maa, pyaari maa.. Mumma 
Ho.. Maa, Meri maa, pyaari maa.. Mumma 

Bigdi kismat bhi sanwar jaayegi
Zindagi taraane khushi ke gaayegi
Tere hote kiska darr
Tu duaao'n ka hai ghar
Meri maa, meri maa, pyaari maa.. Mumma 
Ho.. Maa, Meri maa, pyaari maa.. Mumma 

Yun to main.. sabse nyaara hoon
Par tera maa.. main dulaara hoon

Yun to main.. sabse nyaara hoon
Par tera maa.. main dulaara hoon

Duniya mein jeene se jyada uljhan hai maa
Tu hai amar ka jahaan..
Tu gussa karti hai bada achchha lagta hai
Tu kaan pakadti hai
Badi jor se lagtaa hai meri maa..

Meri maa, meri maa, pyaari maa.. Mumma 
Ho.. Maa, meri maa, pyaari maa.. Mumma

Haatho ki laqeerein badal jaayengi
Gham ki ye zanjeerein pighal jaayengi
Ho Khuda pe bhi asar
Tu duaao'n ka hai ghar
Meri maa, meri maa, pyaari maa.. Mumma 
Ho.. Maa, Meri maa, pyaari maa.. Mumma “

The lines above are lyrics of song Maa, Meri Maa, Pyaari Maa from the hindi movie Dasvidaniya sung & written by Mr.Kailash Kher. Music is sum of all my feelings which cannot be expressed. These above lines are close to my heart and I dedicate this song to my Maa.

During our school times,Our Teacher often gave us a common topic “Mother” to elaborate upon. As the year passed by; we improvised the material over that topic. For an instance take an example of school going kids, if you ask them to define their mother in one word their answer will be something like this:
1st standard kid says “Mother is my angel
2nd Standard kid says “Mother is my universe”.... 
And we grownup kids now say “Mother is our ATM”. The reasons for her presence in our life are materialistic. If we need something from her we call her. But, we have forgotten that she is a sculptor who welded, carved, and modelled our personality and made us the person what we are today.

This reminds me of the famous dialogue from hindi movie named Deewar
Vijay: Aaj mere paas paisa hai, bangla hai, gaadi hai, naukar hai, bank balance hai, aur tumhare paas kya hai?
Ravi: Mere paas Maa hai!
The conversation between Vijay and Ravi brings us to the conclusion that in spite of having all the happiness in  life Vijay lost his mother. He lost his first expert, first friend and the person he would blindly trust upon.



Mother *Maa*, is the universe around you, it might sound hyperbole but its truth! Be it water, food, t-shirt, bag pack, sickness or any random thing only one voice comes out of in loud- Maa. Here is one of my experiences where my maa mentored me for cooking. It was midsummer period my dad was hospitalised for a month and Maa was with dad at hospital.  It was my duty to look after house and food. It was three of us at home I, My elder brother and grandpa. I was given kitchen duty for that month. *Big trouble*. I was thirteen and didn’t know how to cook rice and dal. After few attempts, Clueless of what was being served bhai and grandpa sat for lunch. After the first bite of food their expressions felt like their jaw had some kind of reaction to food being put into. * I had expected these expressions*  The very next thing I did was I called mumma and asked her the procedure. *Maa- My expert* She taught me this “One cup rice, two cup water, add them into cooker, two cooker whistles and the delicious rice is ready” This was how I learned cooking. My mother is the first person I learnt to rely on. She has always been there for me, protecting me from all my fears to making me a strong girl. Maa I owe my life to you.
