As Oprah Winfrey rightly put it, Biology is the least of what makes you a mother. So for Mother's Day this year, IndiaBookStore asked several authors to share with our readers what makes their mothers special. And ta-daa! The response was truly phenomenol and deeply touching. IndiaBookStore thanks all the authors who took time out from their busy schedules and shared such tender thoughts with us.
So here's to the mothers – Happy Mother's Day!
Parul A Mittal, the author of "Arranged Love"
I lost my mother when I was very young and by then I had not even thought of becoming an author. I think you value something you loved so much and you lost it for no fault of yours. Mother’s day therefore connects with me at a deep emotional level. At school I was one of those bright guys and every distinction or award that I got was appreciated by her immensely. Getting a good or an excellent..that is how it was those days…was something to be proud of and I would always share it first with my mother. Immediate reward was a choco bar or a small treat at a restaurant where both of us would enjoy a meal. By today’s standards these rewards were so tiny, but they were our moral boosters. That is what motivated me to work even harder. My mother never pushed me to work hard but her appreciation alone was enough for me, which made me self disciplined.
IndiaBookStore once again thanks all the authors for their lovely contribution!
