10 Bollywood songs to dedicate to your mom


There’s nothing quite as ubiquitous in Bollywood as a mother. In the 50s and  60s Mother had a larger part to play in most films made at the time and so, there were several songs created on mother.Nowadays family oriented movies are not beeing made so the songs on mother are not created.
On the occasion of Mother's Day I dedicate few songs on Mother. 
The first song in my list is Ae Ma Teri Surat Se Alag Bhagwan Ki Surat Sung by Mahendra Kapoor, and composed by Rajesh Roshan, it is from the 1966 film Daadi Maa.
