We call her maa (माँ), mom, mother, ammi, nene, mare, mae, ibu, madre, ana, mati, etc. She is the only person who carries us for the entire 9 months in her womb, and after nine months the human babies born are helpless and needy. It’s the mother who takes a whole and sole responsibility for her baby, before birth and after birth. She feeds her baby inside her womb and after birth she feeds her milk.
After the first few days of delivery the breast produces the first creamy, rich, first milk that contains colostrum. It has all the nutrients for a newborn baby, it also boosts the immune system of the baby and protects him from outside bugs.
Mother (मॉं) is great because she is “The Mother”. No word can describe her greatness, it will take millions of years even billions to thank all mothers.
Through Our Eyes
She has always been our inspiration, our strength, role model, and a protector. The race of humanity is far far more ahead than the other living creatures on this planet is just because of the mother, from birth to her last breath she is always in affection with her child. Even the success and complexity of this social life are because in the beginning she taught her baby so much that the baby can become a social and culturally responsible person.
Mother as a Source of Inspiration
We all must have a source of inspiration in our life. A mother is someone restless in her entire life and she can do anything for her children.
- The mother cares for her children even if she falls ill.
- She is someone who understands your problem, even if you do not express it but she still understands it.
- Even if she does not hold any degree or have professional knowledge, she makes you capable in this world.
- She fights for your dream and even forgets her dream.
- Sometimes you shout at her just because you are upset, but she did not lose her temper and understands your problem like a best friend.
- She always does everything for you, expecting nothing in return.
- Mother (मॉं) is the solution to every problem, whether she is an illiterate or one of the top educated people on the planet.
“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers
भगवान हर जगह नहीं हो सकता है, इसलिए उसने मॉं को बनाया”

Do we think that a single day is enough to thank our mothers? Not at all even a single day, years, or a century is enough to pay our debt we have to our mothers. All-day is important for us to realize how valuable she is for us. It is our responsibility to understand her feelings and positively deal with it.
