Mummy, my super hero!
The Veda says, matrudevobhava, pitrudevobhava, acharyadevobhava, atithidevobhava in Sanskrit- mother (matru) always first. Not pita (father), not acharya (teacher), not guru, nobody.
She is the one who brings us into this world, our first playmate, first teacher, only best-friend; first guide to spirituality and a beautiful creation of God who helps us realize him. A mother is the embodiment of love and affection. The conception of thought about 'mother' promotes in us feelings of love, reverence and surrender which are the main factors of life.
Mother is said to be heart of the family. Only a mother's heart can bear with patience, all troubles and miseries. She never gets tired of changing endless count of diapers, spends sleepless nights when the child is sick, guides us through tough phases of life and is like a rudder to our family taking us in the right direction. She warns us of danger and then embraces us, feeds us, cleans us and tucks us safely into the bed for the night.
My mother is my super hero, of course! Mummy, that is how I call her.
She got married at the age of 19 and had two kids by the time she was 22. Now, we are three as my other brother was born late. She completed her studies both bachelors and masters while taking us along with her to exam halls and interviews. She is a teacher by profession. She has been an epitome of sacrifice and commitment as I have seen her being with our father through all tough times and without her we cannot imagine our family from a car shed to where we are now. I am married and doing my M.S in Biochemical engineering in USA. My first brother is doing his B.Tech in ECE in India and my second brother is in primary school in Saudi Arabia, with my parents.
I have countless pages to write about my mother but I will just quote one episode. It was in my 10th grade, when my father was struggling in his career in Saudi and my mother had to take care of both of us alone. On January 1st 1996, I was diagnosed pulmonary tuberculosis. During those 6 months, she did not literally sleep for 6 months, had to attend my two major operations alone, juggle between hospital and food court, I used to vomit every 10 minutes, sometimes she used to give her sari pallu and her hand, later for one year she never forgot to give a medicine to me with breakfast. For information, T.B is said to be contagious. With all her support, I scored 81% in my 10th grade and stand where I am now in my life.
Many moments, which I can never imagine anyone taking part in, except a mother.
Thanks Mummy, I love you.

Courage, self-respect, truth...
Of Course "My Mom Is My Hero" definitely now and for ever. Having lost our father at the age of 14 years, I have seen my mother transform from a obeying, and devoted house wife to become the one single strong pillar of the family. Taking on the responsibilities of a father, giving us the warmth and never loosing courage in the most tough and trying times. Looking back I now realize how sacrificial she was in giving us the best that we ever asked for. Through this process of growing up we got to learn form mom the virtues of life. Whenever I now hear the words "Courage" "Self Respect" "Truth" the one image that comes to mind is that of mom. Even now at the age of 32 when I am father of a child she stills shows us the righteous way. I at times wonder have I done enough towards what she has done to us, I know and I believe that no matter how much I try I will not be able to match up with what she has done. I hope I have lived up to her expectations. I wish that she instill the same virtues in my daughter. I am today in this position in life just because of my mom. She was always there when I needed her the most, wiping off my tears when I failed, but also telling me that never give up this is not the last time and that I could definitely do better than this, she was always there to share my happiness be it my passing my engineering or at the birth of my daughter. The words I Love You Mom seem too small for the feelings inside my heart, Infact any word seems to small to express not only mine but any Childs feelings towards his mother.
Love you mummy.

I might have soon come to know that my money never went into, or came out of a bank, but this sweet way in which my mother taught me to save, can never be forgotten. And that is why, she means the world to me!
I'll leave you with a lovely sms i received some days back: "when u feel u are alone in a crowd, when u think none can understand you, when your love is rejected by others, and when u hate your life, just close your eyes and see her face who loves you more than anyone else, who cares for you in your loneliness and dies for you when you cry. she is none but your sweet loving MOM."
Hail all mothers in this world.
education she could, made a confident girl to face the world. The people of her generation did not think of
the importance of education, where in she forecasted the competition i will have to face if i want to be
successful. The best lesson i learnt from her is "Can do it " attitude.
