Perhaps, Mother’s day should not be celebrated.
It kind of gives you an option ” to celebrate motherhood or not “. It somehow, puts this day along with all other celebrated days, to remind you of a very special person, A designated day to celebrate our mothers?
Motherhood, it is an emotion that should be celebrated, respected and remembered every single day of our lives.
Being a mother means making sacrifices. This need not be explained really, no one can deny that a mother’s role in a child’s life is exemplary.
So, Can I really say anything more than what has already been said or sung ?
Can I really add anything?
Perhaps, I want to remove something today.
We all have mothers , we love them and we wouldn’t be here without them.
I am not a women, so I will never know what it is to be a mother, being a mother is an extra shade of superiority given to women by God.
Although, I know it’s a very painful process, but Isn’t it a miraculously beautiful thing, that one life takes birth inside you and starts growing in you for months, eats what you eat and keeps reminding you, that a life exist within you, it is kind of a mandatory self loving phase in a women’s life, untill one day the child is born and life starts with a Cry!
Once, Late Dr. APJ Kalam has said very beautifully that ” your day of birth was the only day, when you cried and your mother smiled ”
That cry is just a start of a long journey. We never really stop crying in front of our mothers. Because, we know that no matter what, here is the only person in the world who will never judge us.
But maybe, our mothers might be living in burden of being judged. Burden of never being wrong or burden of being a perfect mother!
We all have perfect imagination of an ideal mother, which can sometimes overshadow the actual person behind a mother.
Thanks to the storytellers and filmmakers, they have always portrayed a perfect mother but they have never touched the person behind that mother.
A simple person, who can go wrong, someone who is not as perfect as those stereotypical mothers in larger than life stories. Perhaps she can be someone who has her own story or probably dreams or maybe she is someone who stopped dreaming after you were born?
This mother’s day relieve her from the burden of being a perfect mother. Tell her, it’s ok to be wrong.
Try to meet the girl, she was before you were born!
This mother’s day meet that girl who changed everything about her life because you cried.
