His caption which had begun with a Hindi poem written by his late father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan could be read as ““Jo base hain wo ujadte hain, pragati ke jad niyam se. Par kisi ujade hue ko, phir basaana kab mana hai? Andheri raat par diya jalaana kab mana hai?” This large ‘gulmohar’ tree was planted as a sapling by me when we got our first house Prateeksha in 1976... the recent storm brought it down... but yesterday on my Mother’s birthday Aug 12th I replanted a fresh new Gulmohar tree in her name… at the same spot!” (Also Read: Karanvir Bohra Shares The First Picture With His Newborn, Reveals Which Is Her Best Sleeping Place)
