Anamika Joshi’s emotional poem – Maa Tum Bhi Galat Ho Sakti Ho – is a reminder of how our society ruthlessly judges and shames mom.
It’s 5:00 in the morning when the whole world is in deep slumber, she rolls out of her bed to start her day. During the day she tries to do best that she could. Most of the time, she prioritizes other people’s needs over her own. But, rather than celebrating her selfless efforts, we choose to criticize her for being less of a mom!
We forget that there’s more to her than just being a ‘mom’. She’s an individual herself.
Recently, Anamika Joshi shared an emotional poem on ‘Maa Tum Bhi Galat Ho Sakti Ho‘, which talks about the unnecessary pressure that we as a family and a society pin on our moms.
Don’t we all expect our parents to be perfect? Aren’t we a little less forgiving when our parents make mistakes? Why is it so difficult for us to accept that even our parents can make mistakes?
Most of the time, we become self-centered when it comes to our parents. We want them to love us unconditionally, but do we love them unconditionally? After what all they did for us, this isn’t too much to ask for? Is it?
Here are the beautiful lyrics of Anamika’s poem:
Woh maa hai, toh galat kaise ho sakti hai bhala? Parvarish mein koi kami na rahe jaaye Tiffin mein khaana ek dum swaadisht jaaye Bacchon ke kapde waqt pe dhul jaayein
Ek bhi daag reh na jaaye Woh maa hai. Woh galat kaise ho sakti hai bhala? Naukri karni chaahi toh bacchon ne rok diya Kuch ghar par hi karna chaha, toh sabne tok diya
Tum maa ho, tum bacchon se bhala apna waqt kaise cheen sakti ho? Tum maa ho, Tum bhala apne liye kaise jee sakti ho? Bachpan se hum bacchon ne maa par kuch aisa pyaar jataya Ke maa ko hamesha sahi karne ke liye majboor hi paaya
Maa, tum doston ke saamne naak mat katwana Suno maa, school mein na kuch proper pehenke aana Aap angreji bolne ki koshish mat hi kiya karo Aap rehne hi do, Ghar par raha karo
Joh bacchon ke galtiyon ko hazaar baar maaf kar deti hai Woh maa kabhi khud nahi galat ho sakti hai Khair, hum bachon ke saath maa bhi badi hui Par aaj bhi dekhti hun, unhe apni aakhon ke kone se mujhe dekhte hue
Jaise puch rahi ho—sahi toh pehna hai na? Yahi bolna hai na? Aise karu ya waise? Jiss maa se humne sab kuch seekha Woh ta umr hum bacchon se seekhne ki koshish karti rahi
Ki maa hokar kahin main galat na ho jaaun Jaisa baccha chahe waisa hi bankar dikhaaun Toh aaj maa, main aapse na mafi maangti hun Wada karti hun ki aapke saath khadi rahungi
Aap sahi karo ya galat aapse judi rahungi Kabhi humse na koi ijazat na maangna Joh mann kare na, bas woh karte jaana
Maa Aap Galat Ho Sakti Ho Aap jaisi ho, aap maa hi rahogi Aapko bhagwan nahi banakar rakhenge Aap insaan bankar jiyogi
Khul kar galtiyan karna Khul kar jeena Aur jaise aap humaare saath khadi thi na Waise main aapke saath khadi rahungi
