Mother’s day Special


First of all, I did not plan to write any such post for Mother’s day. This is not a poem or article which I am planning to dedicate to my mother as it might seem form the title rather a personal opinion on celebrations going on various social media networks today.

It just happened when I was scrolling through my Facebook wall in the morning and saw lots of pictures and thankful messages for their mothers. Then I thought of doing the same (put a picture with mom and a big message with “lots of dots and exclamation marks!!”) but somehow I kept scrolling further (as we usually do once we have opened FB). There I came across with a video ad by Amazon ‘What your Mom wants, cannot be ordered online’ – This line really got me thinking that what is it that a mother wants?

What do you think a Mom wants?

Is it a profile pic update with your mom and a message on Facebook?

Definitely not! If you ask me. (Maybe I think so, because my Mom does not have FB account) so she would be happier if I posted her a letter with an old picture.

Then what is it that she actually wants or may expect from us on so called ‘Special day’ for mothers (even though Indian mothers don’t really expect anything from anyone <you know what I mean, wink>)?

After a while I realized that my Mother would be on cloud 9 if I went to some temple regularly for a year or even for a month or you know, even for a week. This would give her a sense of authority on me and a feeling that she has a say in what I do in my life and that I actually listen to her when I am pretending not to.

I just want to say that on this day let her know that you love her and not the 500 or 1000 friends you have on social media (people whose mother is on the friend list are excluded from this).  Hug her for 3 long minutes if you are lucky to be with her today. Maybe call her and say I love you if you are away.

And if you really want to win the competition, Get married if you are not married already (yeah, I can see the disgusting faces) your mother might continue dancing till next mother’s day and then you can have kids to carry on with the tradition maybe <wink>

Jokes apart, I just wanted to say that posting picture and messages are fine but let it not be the only thing you do for her on this ‘special’ day rather any other day.

Happy Mother’s day.

    ~All our life we keep looking for that one true love.. But actually what we should look for is a perfect companion.. Love comes automatically..!

    ~I don’t need someone that sees what’s good about me. I need someone that sees the bad and still wants me.

    ~Be with someone that requires you to grow, makes you forget your problems, holds your hand, likes to kiss, appreciates art, and adores you.

    ~Do not take someone’s silence as his pride, perhaps he is busy fighting with his self.

    ~I need someone who can get both aspects of me.

    Can see that there is the half of me that reads and works, wants to discuss politics, religion, science, literature. Want to explore and travel. Want to be with people and learn from them. The part of me that is brave and confident, strong and wants to face the world and conquer it.

    And then the other half that is silly, likes the little fun games, smiles at jokes that’s not funny. The part of me which can’t doesn’t know the meaning of some words, which gossips or which just wants to go on and on about the world around me, not caring about anything but me. The part of me which tears up and tears down in front of simple challenges. The part of me that is lazy and want to sleep in, listening to music or watching a stupid movie.

    I need someone who can accept me for who I am and not judge me.

    ~People become attractive over time as you get to know them. Someone who you once felt completely neutral towards can make your stomach do somersaults. It’s not that they were not good looking to begin with, it’s just that things happened which made your conscience ease up and your heart changed. Good character can contribute to how someone perceives you.
