Life is so funny it gives you back what you do.
This Woman’s day my tribute to all wonderful mothers of this world !! Well, I mentioned this post as Daughter Vs Mother, it’s not about the fight between two beautiful creature of the God, but it’s 2 faces of a single woman whose life turns when she switch the role from a daughter to a mother…
Why we always says “PAPA KI PARI ” why it is assumed and said “daddy’s girl and momma’s boy ” have you ever thought about it?
Well, as a daughter if someone ask me whom I was close to I say my papa and if someone ask me whom I admire most, I say my mom <3 now the difference is dad’s are always a best friend who pampers you, goes crazy play with you and make sure whatever you wish for you get that.
On the other hand, if you ask your mom or rather force your mom to get something for you, she will give you hundred reasons to adjust in what you have rather wasting money.
As a daughter, I remember whenever I asked any permission from my mom she always answered saying “ask dad” I never understood that point of time. I was being most pampered daughter of my dad and never thought about what all going to be. My mom always said “Study hard and be independent” but at that delicate age when all girls 80% fall in love or dream about their crush I too joined that 80% and thinking “Mom is like Hitler ”
When I used to go to college to attend a lecture at 6:00 am my mom was always ready with hot tiffin packed for me which sometimes irritated me and I went without taking that tiffin and casually saying ” I will have in canteen ” never thought what she would have felt. I love my mom it doesn’t mean that I never felt bad but yes as a daughter I thought it’s my right and liberty to leave my room unorganized and when something goes missing the only word which echoes “Mummyyyyy Mummmyyyyyy”
By God’s grace and my parent’s wishes, I got married to a wonderful person and my better half. With full Bollywood style dreams, I entered in new phase of life and thought I will make my life like a cake with wonderful icing of love and my kids as cherry on top and from a daughter when my life took a turn towards a MOTHER now I realize what mothers go through as now I am in her shoes.
I still love my dad most but I salute my mom for giving me upbringing to adjust in whatever I have in life, I thank my dad for fulfilling my every single wish but I owe my life to my mother who always says “study hard and be independent ” now I realise after being a mother that what she meant by being independent it’s not about 9 am to 6 am job she was talking about, she was trying to tell that you will get 24/7 job but don’t loose your individuality and keep space for your dreams and your hobbies. If she was standing with hot tiffin for me at 6 am means she was much early got up thinking I should not be hungry after my lecture. Round a clock when I think about my kids, I prepare for their exams I feel sorry for being sometimes so rude and selfish to my mom.
I am not feeling shameful saying sorry on this social platform to my mom for hurting known or unknowingly but this SORRY is straight from my heart <3 to mom.
Now I realize why in Hindi all says “Jab maa banogi tab pata chalega..”
Yes.… I confessed that I feel sorry and bad for my deeds I did as a daughter to my mom.. do you also have to say anything to you mom …share your feelings .. NOW
