It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 12. While every day should be mother’s day, the second Sunday of May is designated as the Mother’s Day to honour and celebrate motherhood and the sacrifices that go into it.
Internet is already flooding with gifting options, weekend vacation ideas and off-beat ways to celebrate this day with your mother.
Bollywood meanwhile is celebrating and marking the day in its own way.
Here is how B-Town celebs wish and memorialize their relationship with mothers and celebrate the spirit of the day.
My mother taught me the importance of being truthful and kind. She’s got amazing resilience and an undying faith in providence, she’s so optimistic. She’s also the most well-read person I know. I guess I have taken a little bit of everything from her.
I learnt how to budget within our means. She taught me to survive in a world with and in a world without. I’ve never known a person like my mother. Resilient and headstrong to a point where she would live out a lifetime for love, honour and pride than kneel before the turbulence of time. She’s given me everything I have today. And all mine is hers now.
My interest in design started because of my mother. In music, dance, and everything creative. She taught me to see the world in a different light. I was always encouraged to do and follow what makes me happy as long as I was learning and growing. She retired as a teacher and post retirement, she has started learning how to paint. And every time she sends me her new painting, I feel so happy.
One thing that I have learnt from mother that helped me to shape my personality is that there is no option to truthfulness, honesty and hard work.
Secondly, she taught me to not leave a single grain of food in my plate. Even at this stage of my life I am still following her lessons and will keep doing so.
I only believe in sincerity, honesty and hard work. The reason for not leaving food on our plates was from the fact that we come from a family of farmers. We know the hard work and effort that goes into growing a single rice grain and bringing the same grain back home from the fields.
