It is said that daughters are more close to their father, while sons are always pampered by their dearest mother. When a girl gets married, it is the father only who misses her the most, in her parental home. The song ‘Babul Ki Duaayein Leti Ja’, from the movie ‘Neel Kamal’ and sung by Mohd. Rafi, expresses the feelings of a father, on the wedding of his daughter. He gives her all his blessings and wishes a happy married life for her, which will be so full of love that she will never ever miss her paternal home (after going to her husband’s house).

Babul Ki Duaayein Leti Ja
Singer: Mohd Rafi

Babul ki duaayein leti jaa
Jaa, tujhko sukhi sansaar mile
Maike ki kabhi na yaad aaye
Sasuraal mein itna pyaar mile
Babul ki duaayein leti jaa
Jaa, tujhko sukhi sansaar mile

Naazon se tujhe paala maine
Kaliyon ki tarah, phoolon ki tarah
Bachpan mein jhulaaya hai tujhko
Baahon ne meri jhoolon ki tarah
Mere baagh ki ae naazook daali
Tujhe harpal nayi bahaar mile
Maike ki kabhi na yaad aaye
Sasuraal mein itna pyaar mile

Is ghar se bandhe hain bhaag tere
Us ghar mein sadaa tera raag rahe
Honton pe hansi ki dhoop khile
Maathe pe khushi ka daag rahe
Tujhe aisa roop singaar mile
Maike ki kabhi na yaad aaye
Sasuraal mein itna pyaar mile

Beete tere jeevan ki ghadiyaan
Aaraam ki thandi chhaon mein
Kaanta bhi na chhubne paaye kabhi
Meri laadli tere paaon mein
Us baar se bhi dukh door rahe
Jis baar se tera baar mile
Maike ki kabhi na yaad aaye
Sasuraal mein itna pyaar mile
Babul ki duaayein leti jaa
Jaa, tujhko sukhi sansaar mile
Babul ki duaayein leti jaa
