Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. The modern Mother’s Day has been assimilated into Indian culture. Indians do not celebrate the occasion as a religious one, but do their best to thank their mothers for care and love.

I am in Gangtok now at my institute. I couldn’t wish the sweetest mom in the world in person although I wished her ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ over phone and paid my sincerest regards and thanks for her love and care. It’s because of her love and care I have become what I am today. Borrowing from George Eliot: life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face.

I managed to send her a bouquet of roses to my mom today. They delivered the bouquet and my card in evening. Mom was surprised and happy to get the flowers. She loves flowers and so I sent her flowers.

I always remember what Rudyard Kipling said: “God couldn’t be everywhere, and therefore He made mothers.”
