My mom is a very simple lady. She is not like today’s moms who are comfortable with whatsapp, speak fluent English and wear jeans and other western dresses. She is a saree clad lady with high thinking. Yet she stress more on reading books than watching movies. When I was born my mom was struggling to find her feet in her career but she decided to give up her career and settled with my grandparents, until I became mature enough to understand the hardships of the life.
She is just like “Mother India”, a woman of substance. During absence of my father due to work, my mother has taken the responsibility of imparting the qualities to us. She has brought us as fine individuals, communicated values more by action than by talking about them. She taught us about the importance of simplicity and austerity. She told us to deal with every human being more sensitively and courteously. She told me that there is no limit to what a determined mind can achieve, but in achieving your goal, don’t compromise on the values of fair play and honesty. Don’t cut corners or compromise to achieve your dreams. I am full of gratitude to my mother who has given her interests, enjoyments , just to give us the best upbringing.
Thanks to #FBB who has given me a chance to dress like my mom and to surprise her. Though due to distance I cannot store her reactions but am sure Mom is going to love my look, showcasing her as my idol. I tried to copy her big size Bindi and inseparable love for the ethnic dress like Saree and suits. Though am not looking even a percent as beautiful as her but still tried my best to be her Shadow whether in terms of her teachings/ rules or clothing.
