The second Sunday of May is celebrated as Mother’s Day in India. This year it will be celebrated on Sunday, May 8. On this day we thank our mothers, and express our love and gratitude to them, although in different places the day is celebrated on different dates.
No one can ever replace her at any cost. “Youth fades; love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; a mother’s secret hope outlives them all,” a famous quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes sums up the eternal significance of a mother.
A mother’s efforts should be recognized and appreciated every day, even when it is not Mother’s Day.
