It was my daughter’s first lohri and me and my family was so happy that Sardool paji and his family was there to bless the new born. He sang “Mool mantar” “Ek Onkar” to bless the baby. Never thought it was our last meeting with you, love u sardool paji, u will always stay in our hearts #omshanti #sardoolsikander”
