Women to showcase their skills
Waking up early in the dawn, planning for the day, preparing meals, seeing children off to school, heading to office and returning home only to take charge of the rest of chores appear to be the norm for ‘supermoms’ who are adept at multitasking.
Visakhapatnam: Waking up early in the dawn, planning for the day, preparing meals, seeing children off to school, heading to office and returning home only to take charge of the rest of chores appear to be the norm for 'supermoms' who are adept at multitasking. With Mother's Day celebrated on Sunday, it gives an opportunity for many to make their moms feel important in their lives and honour them.
Despite the age, you will still be a child to your mom as mothers tend to have a significant bond with their children even after they grow up. Many consider the day an opportunity to pay special attention to treat their moms. M Surya, a post-graduate student, said "I always try to make my mother feel special not just on occasions such as this but every day. However, this time, I plan to take my mom out or cook food for her. My grandmother often tells me that my mother sacrificed her dream of becoming a teacher when I came into her life. So, the least I can do for her is to ensure a smile on her face all the time."
While it takes a lot of patience and courage to be a mother, new mothers say that they enjoy every moment of mothership. P Shwetha, mother of a two-month old baby girl, said "Bringing up a child is not that easy. My sleep pattern and food habits have completely changed as it revolves around my daughter now. However, when I look at the little bundle of joy in my arms, there is no happiness that could match the warmth."
The tech-savvy kids are giving a tough time to their moms. Ch Mounika, a housewife in the city, said "My husband often asks me why I get hooked to daily soaps every day. What can I do if my children are always busy with their smartphones? I wish some day they come closer and talk to me affectionately and not just when they want something from me."
With a heart that cares for many, Madhu Tugnait, the founder of Icha Foundation in Kondakarla village, considers a mother for the abandoned children who are differently-abled. She said, "There are 20 children in my shelter, out of whom 12 are abandoned by their parents for their disabilities. I treat them like my own children and they call me 'Madhu amma'. I am blessed to be able to look after these children and the love they shower upon me completes my life."
