#MothersDay - A message from Udita

For me Mother stands for my identity. Whatever I am today, my past and my future is all because of her. She has always been my source of inspiration, my never ending support and my 3 am friend. There were times when I craved to find my identity beyond her, but the more I tried, the more I have realized that it is her I am a part of. I think it is the only relation in the world where you do not judge the other person. I have never judged my mother. Whatever she has done in her life, whatever decisions she has taken has always been right according to me. We can never hear wrong about our mother like we cannot hear anything wrong about God. 

I can still remember the long conversations I used to have with my mother about life and its problems. She had so patiently listen to them and given me advice on each and every thing. I can still rewind those advice in my head today and find their relevance in my life.

Even today when I feel lonely or ill it is my mother I call. I sincerely hope she also does the same. Sometimes after so many years we start to take this relationship as granted and forget to tell our moms how we miss her and how grateful we are to her. But Mother’s day at least gives me an opportunity to say that. 
Now today when I am myself a mother of two, I wish I could inculcate all those values in my children which she had inculcated in me. Being mother is a wonderful feeling but somewhere down there, there is a fear 'what if I fail or what if I turned up to be miserable mother'. Sometimes I feel guilty for shouting at my children and sometimes I feel sad that I was not able to take my children to that class or to that movie. There are times when I expect so much from myself and from my children that I end up making myself miserable. I know no mother can be a failure, but sometimes we are way too much judged even by ourselves.



Today when my children, hand over a mother’s day card, I feel so complete in that relationship. My children are the mark I will leave the world with and I hope it is a great one. My children might not be my reflection but I hope they are happy wherever they go in life. I know one day they will take their own decisions and make their own life and would not need me to guide them but I know I will be happy when I see them at that.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.


Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
