Sharing the pictures of holding son Sufi in his arms under the beautiful blue sky Nakuul wrote, “Kahlil Gibran’s words have never felt this close as they do today… ‘Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.”
“You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, But seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday…’ Hey, @babysufim. We’l try to remember these words every day of our lives.”
Many celebrities and Nakuul’s friend from the industry Raj Singh Arora, Drashti Dhami, Tahira Kashyap, Pooja Gor, Surbhi Jyoti, Monika Khanna dropped their love in the comments section.
