Happy Mother's Day

She would get up before the break of dawn every day and will finish most of the routine work she could, before anyone else open their eyes. Then, she would wake us up to get ready for school. After we’ve left, she’ll prepare tea for Dad whose busy reading paper to catch news about ‘what’s-happening-in-your-neighbourhood’, least bothered of what’s going on in house with respect to daily chores of life.

She’ll pack lunch for Dad and before he leaves for work, will ask him to come home early to spend time with family and dad off-course, will make a tacit promise in approval but never fulfilled.

Then, she would wash the clothes, clean the house and prepare a list of things she needs to buy from the grocery store. She’ll prepare a separate list of stuff each member of the house need. Cleaning our room and putting things back in order had become a customary tradition for her to follow everyday unknowingly for rest of her life.

Sometimes, she’d like to relax for a while in the midst of her daily household tasks that she won’t mind sipping a cup of tea while watching television or listening music. She’ll make sure that this time-off lasts as long as there’s tea in her cup. She’ll soon get back to perform her daily routine of putting things back in order.

She’ll get ready and before we come back from school, she’ll not only buy all that is needed from the market but will prepare lunch as well. She’ll make sure that she has prepared food as per our liking so as to not to offend anyone of us. She soon realized if she ran out of options, (maggi) noodles and a chocolate bar will always come to her rescue and Sundays, will always be an occasion in terms of food on the menu and a special day for whole family to be together.

Post lunch, she’ll talk to us and will inquire about school proceedings. She’ll listen attentively and will be very polite in giving her views which always turn out to be a new learning for us. Then she’ll make us sleep for a while before we study. Evening when we are out playing, she’ll water the plants and prepare dinner before it gets dark. Dad will be home any minute and she’ll spend some time with us watching television.

We all will have dinner together once Dad’s home, while she prepares chappathis and later, she’ll put us in bed, her gnarled fingers rubbing against our forehead while dad’s busy watching news on television. Before she could declare ‘day over’, she’ll ask dad to sleep now as he must have been very tired after today’s hard work at office, ignoring the degree of physical work she went through today.

And the next day, she’ll again get up before sunrise, to start all over again doing the same activity she’s been doing for years selflessly.

With this note

I wish all mothers of the world a very Happy Mother’s Day and thank them for being such great moms, for taking good care of us and for making us what we are today and for the undying love, generosity and service for each one of us in the family.

Thank You Mamma !!!

  4. yesterday i was having a discussion with my daughter,t hat in family..fathers hard and brings money, mother works in the house to maintain it, so where is the difference, why mothers are revered more?..both are doing their duty in their respected fields...why father reading the paper is considered inconsiderate and mother cooking and doing other things is considered slogging..doesnt father slog at office....

    1. Hello Renu Ma'm,

      first of all you had a discussion with your daughter and daughters naturally have close affinity to their dads :-)

      although i completely agree with you that father's are at same par (and we do celebrate fatherhood in june every year) but the thing with mom is, if someone is in pain or gets hurt, naturally the first word that comes out of mouth is "MAAA" and moms is such a beautiful creation of god that even father's can't defeat in any sense...

      ask your daughter to ask dad what he thinks about his parents, who is he more close and who he thinks outshines other :-)

      regards
      rahul

      P.S : wish you a very happy mother's day and god bless you and all the mothers in this world for being such great moms!!!

  5. I think everyone struggles in life. Be it father, mother or even today's kids. But I do agree that mother's are more selfless than others. They are more concerned about the happiness of others than her own.
