Losing anyone in a family hits a person hard and is a tough phase to go through but when that person is one's mother, it is absolutely devastating. Actor Shaleen Malhotra, who is best known for his role in Arjun has lost his mother as she passed away recently.
In a long note on Instagram, Malhotra shared his feelings about his mother which included him talking about how she fought with an illness for 21 years and even when the doctors had given up, she challenged them and got back.
His entire note read, "Aur doosre har rishte se bahut khaas hai....
Log kehte hai main tujhsa hoon, agar aadha bhi tujhsa ban saka toh khud ko jeeta maanoonga...
Have never seen a woman like you and I don’t say it cuz m your son as everyone loves their parents but maa you were a rockstar, you’ve fought for an illness for 21 years, docs gave up and you challenged them and got back, life never treated you well or not cuz you made life treat you the way you want it to treat you.... shart lagakar zindagi jee hai... I’m not lucky to be born as your son but blessed to have a mother like you, ...., you were a warrior... from someone you’ve met once to someone you meet daily, sab fan hain, you talk to someone and the person becomes yours forever.... but won’t say bye to you .... I hate byes.... tu mujhme zinda hai maa, tujhsa hoon na toh an tu hi ban ne ki koshish karoonga, na tujhsa koi tha na hi hoga, will miss when my screen reads maaaaa calling, only one person asks if I’m ok and eating woh nahin hoga, but m sure you’re ruling up there, and I’ll be seeing you whenever the time comes, I love you maa.... par ab dar lag raha hai, kyunki duniya mein kuch ho I knew ki maa hai na toh dar kaisa, ab dar lag raha hai..... meri buniyaad hil gayi hai.... par tera baccha hoon pata hai nikaal lenge ye bhi.... tu hai na.... you were an inspiration to everyone , the docs in every hospital used to give your reference to ppl.. zindagi sahi maayne mein sirf aapko aata tha..... phir milenge maa...."-
One of the striking lines in his note is about how he will miss 'Maa calling' that flashed on his phone screen when she called her.
May her soul rest in peace.
