MOTHER'S DAY - 8th May, 2011

Every Second Sunday of May in the year is marked as 'Mother's Day', especially in India. Though the day is different in other parts of the world between March and May, but certainly they observe Mother's day. On this day, children give gifts to their mothers in honour of motherhood.

My daughters have reminded me a day before that they want to give a gift to their mother. This made me feel happy, because their tiny minds thought on their own, without prompting from others. This kind of behaviour will nurture the roots of family bond.

In fact, we all should owe to our mothers for what we are today in our
lives. There is a Jewish Proverb which goes like this: God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers. Washington Irving meekly told that : A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother's love endures through all.

Earmarking a day in a year will certainly give an opportunity to express our gratitude for unfathomable depths of mother's love.

But now a days, the relationships are on the verge of collapse. Children who have grown up shed their responsibility to look after their parents, leaving the aged ones at the mercy of  neighbours or old-age rehabilitation centres  both for financial and moral support. Irrespective of social status, the children need to extend their support to their parents especially when they become old so that the parents will not feel  insecured in their old age. This gesture by children  is a real tribute to mothers upon which the edifice of society stands.
