After defeating Ravan in the war, Vibheeshan requested Ram and Laxman to visit Lanka.
Ram and Laxman were absolutely struck by the beauty of Lanka. The ponds were crystal clear and the way to get into was studded with diamonds and precious stones. The buildings were of fine architecture and the roads were very neat.
Ram was spell bound and was getting attracted to the beauty of Lanka. But he refrained himself from further seeing the beauty of Lanka by saying
"API SWARNAMAYI LANKA NA MAY LAKSHMANA ROCHATHI JANANI JANMABHOOMISCHA SWARGADAPI GARIYASI"
Which translates to - "Dear LAXMAN, may be Lanka is truly Golden and resembles heaven but the mother and the motherland are more sacred than heaven”.
Wishing “A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to our beloved 62 year old mom.
She may not be the most beautiful. She may not be the wealthiest. She may not be the strongest. But she is my mom and I love her.
I wish and pray all her children will pay due attention and respect to her. Not just on her birthday but also for the rest of 364 days in a year.
Wishing you all - A VERY HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!
