Speaking on the occasion, Miss Bhumi, grand-daughter of Shri Ram Kumar ji, recited a poem : -
"From the first day of your life you need to know that there is someone who cares for you,
Grandma and grandpa, You have always shown us your love in everything you do,
There were times we made it rough for you and gave you many a headache ,
You never seem to let us down, you stood by us and showed us all the right roads to take,
You scolded when it was needed and praised us for good things when it was earned ,
With your love and understanding from our mistakes, we were able to learn ,
So on this special day of yours - the day you became husband and wife ,
We have all joined together, all of us who have been a part of your life,
To wish you a Happy Anniversary on your Golden Wedding Day ,
And hope that God will hold you both in his hands and listen to what we all say ,
Grandma and grandpa ! we love you and with God's blessing from above ,
Wish you many more happy years together with Everlasting Love !!! "
Then parents / grand parents of both the kids i.e. Master Prateek and Nihar were also given some time to come of the stage and seek blessings of the entire congregation. Grand parents ofPrateek Dobbal (completed three years), Mrs. Vimla ji and Shri Manohar Lal ji thanked the Sadh Sangat for giving blessings to their grandson. Similarly, Shri Mandeep Khurana, father of the second kid - Nihar Khurana also thanked the entire Sadh Sangat for the blessings bestowed of his son. But the real surprise was given by Nihar himself, who has just completed five years, and he recited a small poem with full confidence, as under : -
"किसी गिरते हुए को उठायो तो कोई बात बने, किसी रोते हुए को हँसायो तो कोई बात बने ,
प्यार अपनों से तो हर कोई निभा लेता है , प्यार गैरों से निभायो तो कोई बने !
कांटे राहों में बिछाना तो कोई बात नहीं , फ़ूल राहों में बिछायो तो कोई बात बने ,
हँसके ख़ुशियों में तो हो जाती है दुनियाँ शामिल, काम दुःख दर्द में आयो तो कोई बात बने !!
किसी गिरते हुए को उठायो तो कोई बात बने ! किसी रोते हुए को हँसायो तो कोई बात बने !! "
Shri Ved Batra ji , Mukhi Mahatma ji of our Satsang Bhawan, said that as we all know such type of marriage anniversaries are often celebrated at this Satsang Bhawan many a time, silver jubilee anniversaries are also celebrated many a time, but Golden Jubilee anniversaries are celebrated very rarely. He further said that he only remembers having celebrated golden jubilee for two couples only i.e. Smt. Shakuntala Kapoor ji and Faqir Chand Kapoor ji and second - Mrs. and Mr. T.V. Arora ji. He further wished that all couples should enjoy good health, continue to attend Satsang regularly, do Sewa and Simran and reach their golden jubilee year. Mr. Mohan Kapoor announced another happy news that our Mukhi Mahatma ji has bought a new big car with the blessings of Satgur Mata Savinder Hardev ji Maharaj and we should all bestow our blessings on the Batra family so that they continue to enjoy safe rides of this car happily ever after. Mahatma Davinder Aggarwal played the role and responsibility of convener of the function. Mohan Kapoor provided the much required occasional doses of fun and humour in between the function.
