Bansuri Swaraj wrote in her tweet, "Mother @SushmaSwaraj Heartiest congratulations on your birthday. Words are not enough to express how much I miss you. Your affection, blessings, culture, and education will always pave my way. Happy Birthday ma." Bansuri also shared a picture of her mother cutting a cake.

आपकी कितनी याद आती है इसकी अभिव्यक्ति के लिए शब्द पर्याप्त नही होते और भाषा सिमट कर रह जाती है। यह आश्वासन ज़रूर है कि आपका स्नेह, आशीर्वाद, संस्कार, और शिक्षा, सदैव मेरा मार्ग प्रशस्त करते रहेंगें।
Happy Birthday Ma.#SushmaSwarajpic.twitter.com/oSbipDADGR
Since being shared, her post has received over 2.5 lakh likes. Many users also paid their respects to Sushma Swaraj. "Forever in our heart and mind. The best orator I have heard in my life. True Indian," said a user. Another added, "A person with unwavering spirit and personality and a wonderful diplomat, her motherly touch in everything won us over. The mother in a diplomat who'd rescue from Mars too! Hoping you're in the best joy of God and His Paradise."
Swaraj Kaushal, Sushma Swaraj's husband, also took to the microblogging site to wish his late wife on her birthday. He wrote in the caption, "Remembering you on your birthday." He also shared lyrics of the song sung by Lata Mangeshkar. "Tum Na Jaane Kis Jahan Mein Kho Gaye, Hum Bhari Duniya Mein Tanha Ho Gaye......!" he added.

A few weeks ago, Mr Kaushal shared a picture that he said was taken two days before the death of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader on August 6, 2019. The couple can be seen posing for the camera when the picture was taken at the India International Centre.
Sushma Swaraj died at the AIIMS in Delhi in 2019 at the age of 67 following a cardiac arrest. She was Delhi's first female chief minister and a seven-term Member of Parliament. When she joined the Haryana government in 1977, she also became the youngest cabinet minister.Click for more trending news
