KYA BAAT HAI( what a great Image)
So BAABA JI(meaning an old wise man in our Native Punjabi)'s portrait clicked by BAABA JI(Also meaning a wise person of a special field like Rakesh Syal is) has brought him laurels,
Nothing new,
VADHAEEAN( Cogratulations)

{The meanings written are not for Rakesh who is a proud Punjabi himself, but for other friends who do not know Punjabi Language}
