Maa Tujhe Salaam

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers

Today morning, I woke up to the sound of patriotic Hindi Movie songs in Lata Mangeshkar’s mellifluous voice blaring out of loudspeakers in the neighbouring Apartment Complex. As I love the songs like Aao Bachchon…Is Mitti se tilak karo yeh dharti hai balidaan ki, Aye mere watan ke logon, Vande Mataram etc., it was a great experience. 

What made it more special was that today is neither Republic Day nor Independence Day. Normally patriotism is in the air on these two days…



“Maa
Sujalam Suphalam Malayaja Sheetalam Shashya Shyamala Mataram,  Vande Maa….taram”
- Lyrics from “Vande Mataram”

Maa Tujhe Salaam”(Mother, I  Salute You)

I didn’t fail to recognize the commemoration to Maa – Mother.
Bharat Maa – Our India

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day- Celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of every May.

Mothers are important as they gift us life.

Moms are Angels!
They know magic spells!
Moms create Heaven even in Hell!
They always ensure- 'All Is Well!'

My Mom had shared this Sanskrit saying with me-

Janani Janmabhoomischa Swargat Api Gareeyasi
- Mother & Motherland are greater than even Heaven.

May we value all Mothers and give them the regard that they truly deserve that too every day.

This is a crucial time for our Motherland. 

May there be great participation in the last phase of elections and may a majority cast their votes.

May a stable Government come to power with thumping majority and undertake the developmental works for Bharat Maa.

Bharat Mata Ki Jai!

This is my humble tribute for all the Mothers and for our Motherland.

Happy Mother’s Day!

  7. This makes me realise the scenes we use to have in movies - watan ki mitti. Wonder where the patriotism has vanished now. Hopefully 2014 will bring some changes in the way our country functions. Hopefully we will again be proud of our nation...
    Great take, Anita. Maa tujhe salaam!

    1. True Nisha. Those movies were post-War in the 60s.

      We need to value our Moms too.
