Message on Mother’s Day :

No other can be greater than Mother. Mother is a character that brings love & regards when spoken for it. When God created world he thought that he can’t live everywhere so he created MOTHER, where we can see shadow of God. What to say about MOTHER? It is the best FIRST LOVE of world, when she is carrying the baby, she loves it without any logic, it may be beautiful or not, intelligent or not, she loves… It is said if a child looses father Mother will work hard &bring up the child, but Mother is lost everything is lost…Physically &mentally. That is why when anyone enters the home, so many members are there, but child will look for MOM. In our Indian culture mothers pass on good habits and thoughts by songs & rhymes. As Shivaji maharaj’s mother advised him to become brave king & take care of Motherland so shivaji proved when Gandhi ji went abroad for study, his mother told him to speak truth only &eat and drink according to our culture, he did it, and Mohandas became Mahatma following these principles, So Mother is first teacher of our life and lap of mother is the safest place for every child.

We may not expect all children to become SHRAVAN, who took his parents on long yatra, but we all must accept that their blessings are more valuable than any materialistic luxury, Mother is the only person who will always bless, never curse she will try her best to make child better than anyone she will willingly do it…May be she poor/rich, educated/uneducated, simple or smart. As sweet is not sweet without sugar, House is not Home without mother who has solution for every problem… Concluding here, There can’t be a DAY for Mother, one who brought us in this world, trained us without any expectation, Mankind is always obliged to MOTHER…sweet MOM. who is other form of GOD Ganpati ji proved it by doing Pradaxina of His parents that whole world is here, not anywhere else….
Regards to all Mothers & our Motherland.

It is truly said that God cannot be everywhere and that is why he made mothers. Mother’s Day is celebrated to honour mother, motherhood, maternal bond and the influence of mothers in society.

It is celebrated on different days in many parts of the world, mostly in March or May. The international Mother’s day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May and so the date changes every year. In 2022, it is on 8th May.

The first Mother’s day was celebrated on 12th May 1907 in the United States of America. It was started by Anna Jarvis in the memory of her late mother.

There is a custom of wearing a Red or Pink Carnation to represent a living mother or a white carnation for the mother who is not alive anymore. Over time the day was expanded to include grandmothers, aunts and other mother figures.

Festivals honouring mothers in ancient times were often tied to Gods and Goddesses. The Phrygians held a festival for Cybele, the Great Mother of the Gods. The Greeks and Romans also honoured the mother figure of their gods. Even today, an important festival in India, Navaratri, honours the Mother Goddess.

Children celebrate this day with their mothers by doing special things for them like giving her gifts or flowers, taking her out for a nice lunch, dinner, picnic, movie or doing a long phone-call or video chat if they are not in the same place as their mother. Some even make a nice video of all brothers and sisters wishing mom together.

Small children like painting cards and cutting a cake with their mother and organise surprises for her with the help of their father.

In short, Mother’s day is a day to say thanks and express love for the person who brought you into this world and has always been kind and generous to you. Wishing everyone a very Happy Mother’s Day 2022!
