Maa’va thandiya shaava.Mothers, providers of cool shade.

Baldev Singh, a Kuala Lumpur-based entrepreneur and an accomplished kirtani, posted on his Facebook today. It’s Mother’s Day.

In another posting, Suwaran Singh Dhillon, an active member of the Shah Alam gurdwara, in a Facebook posting, writes: “In 1972, my late Father Sdr Baldev Singh Dhillon wrote this beautifull kavita (Poem) on Mothers in his diary. Today is MOTHER’S DAY & I am sharing this with all.”

In the comment space, Gurcharan Singh provided what seems to an instant translation of the poem. We share the poem and the translation.

Happy Mother’s day from the team at Asia Samachar.

Mothers

If God bids, may all get the unparalelled motherly affection
As long this mind remains loving,may the world flourish with happiness
Blessed be those mothers who gave birth,fed milk in her lap and care
Suffering endlessly herself,she made sure the little one smiled
Sang loving rhymes, made sure the child saw dreams of happiness
If God willingly bid ,and bless may all receive motherly loveSince the creation of the universe, mothers true love has prevailed
For age, endless,this has not changed,mothers love remains
May the motherly traits remain forever may all get equal love
If God willingly bid ,aand bless may all receive motherly love

All bhagat, rishi & munni are the result of motherly affectionate smile,
all those brave heroes born of mother are the pride of their nation
God grant, may I see your presence again, all will be fulfilled in me,
If God willingly bid and bless ,may all receive motherly love

seeing your flowery image,mother,you be blessed by your of spring
many relationships prevail the world, but Mother is unique and lovely
This my reply,to question,no matter how many times you ask the question
If God willingly bid ,may all receive motherly love

Mothers name is holy,that is why we call bharat (india)Mother
This bond will not end,no matter the distance may be thousand of miles
Within the orchards of my nation,one finds such motherly flowers in thousands
If God willingly bid and bless ,may all receive motherly love

Mothers love will prevail forever, as long as the world lasts
better than best of all presents, mothers love presented is greatest
the word Mother means ‘life freedom prospers’ and is found at every place,
If God willingly bid and bless ,may all receive motherly love
As long this mind remains loving,may the world flourish with happiness
God may willingly bid and bless ,may all receive unparalleled motherly love
