MOTHER’S DAY; EXPECTATIONS VERSUS REALITY
Every year, people across the globe celebrate Mother’s day to pay coinage to the efforts a mother does all year long. Today, I will unveil some of the realities of Mother Day; Expectations versus Reality. So let’s start.
When we think about expectations, seriously mothers who all year long make efforts to put food on the table by maintaining a balance between family life and work life, too at times expects.
The expectations might not be great but do comprise a bit of acknowledgement for her efforts, but this is not experienced in reality.
Even the thought of celebrating mother’s day for a day does ring a bell but it is short-lived as these mothers do far more than a day can do for them.
We are again and again reminded of the fact that actions speak louder than words. And that is true when it comes to showing off. This too reiterates the stance of Expectations versus Reality.
Seriously, who are we fooling under the disguise of a Mother’s day. The big shots and media and all, do they in practise, follow the notion? All are doing lip service to boost their credentials.
It’s more like a topi drama where every actor/actresses know their line and know how to react to a certain questions. So much for expectations versus reality in the name of Mother day.
If you ask me, the true essence of mother day does not lie in the celebration of mother day once a year. It is the recognition needed every passing day of the year.
How can anyone earn Jannat(Heaven) by just celebrating a day in a year as Mothers day?
It is a very responsible task that the Almighty has assigned a woman to be a mother and maintain all balances when it comes to upbringing a generation.
We don’t need special days to understand the basics. We just need a positive mindset to understand that all mothers matter no matter big or small, poor or rich, coloured or white.
Embrace them every day, acknowledge their efforts every day and show them that they are not bound to be paid homage on one particular day. It is time to change the beliefs and norms and bring forth real mothers on Mother’s Day.
Do something genuine to show that you care and mean it.
Think about it. Until next time, stay safe and healthy.
