Dear Sanjay,
I don't know how to express my love towards you. I have written a small poem for you. "Dil karta hai tu phir se chotta ho jaye, apnna badappan dikhhaoo mein apni baaho ke jhule mein, lekar tujhe jhulaoo mein pyari pyari lori gaa kar ,phir se tujhe sulaoo mein itna pyar diya hai tunne, kuch to karj chukaoo mein" teri didi.
Your's sister
