माँ-मौम-अम्मी।(Ma-Mom-Ammi){Munawwar Rana's couplet}

Each day we breath is because of our mothers and hence everyday is a Mothers Day. It's good to dedicate a whole day to her name,call her ma,mother,amma,biji,mom,ammi,aaye or anything else her love remain the same for her children. Munawwar Rana is an urdu poet whose most shers(couplet) are dedicated to mother or daughter. Here I am posting some of his shers with english translation by me.

1. जब भी कश्ती मेरी सैलाब में आ जाती है,
    माँ दुआ करती हुई ख्वाब में आ जाती है।
    Whenever my boat in inundation comes,
    Mother for me praying in dreams comes.

2.ये ऐसा क़र्ज़ है जो मै अता कर ही नहीं सकता,
   मै जब तक घर न लौटूं मेरी माँ सजदे में रहती है।
   It is such a debt which I can never ever pay,
   My mother remains in prostration until I get back home.

3.मेरी ख्वाहीश है की फिर से मै फ़रिश्ता हो जाऊं,
   माँ से इस तरह लिपट जाऊं कि बच्चा हो जाऊं।
   I desire to become an angel again,
   Cling to mother in a way to become a child again.

4.सोचता हूँ तो छलक उठती है मेरी आँखें,
   तेरे बारे में न सोचूं तो अकेला हो जाऊं।
   My eyes spills when I think about you,
   If I don't think about you than I become alone.
