We all owe to our mothers what we are today in life ! The word mother symbolizes caring, compassion and unwavering loving without expecting anything in return from the child. That’s why, we use the phrase motherly care. Father give logistic and financial support to the family where as mother actively participates in the child’s day to day development due to which children are closer to their mothers and not fathers in majority of the cases.
When it comes to my story, my mother though didn’t have formal education, but her sharp brain with a wit to steer the daily affairs of our home is unparalleled. From her, I learnt Telugu’s most proverbs which she quotes to everyday context from time to time. I somewhat inherited her foresight, photographic memory, intellect. More than that what I couldn’t still forget is how she pacified my father when I was given money to bring sugar from local provision store, where as I spent those bucks for purchase of 3 kgs of Vedic literature from a waste-paper seller on 9th January 1990 (my final year of graduation). Those books were the first installment in my personal library which now grew in size crossing approx three-hundred mark.
Reading of those immortal books helped me to propel in life and it also sowed the first seeds of passion to write. If there is anything I could give credit for my writer’s journey, it is all her kind gestures then that nurtured me to rise in life without neglecting my hobbies – reading with equal passion to write !
As a gesture of my gratitude, today I rang up to her and conveyed my greetings before I sit for writing this post.
Once again, Happy Mother’s Day to All Wonderful Mothers on this Universe !
