Today is Mothers Day a day specifically marked in the calendar around the globe to honor the women of our society who throughout their lives labor so that their children may have better lives. It is only strong mothers who can guarantee a strong nation and Pakistan’s strength and development is most dependent upon its mothers.
In Pakistan, this Mothers Day Celebration is only now beginning to make an impact on our society and signs of celebration can be seen in places, especially the commercial outlets. But it’s a lovely way to honor your mother and detractors should not be allowed to dub it a western idea and knock its importance – we have been taught that paradise lies beneath the feet of a mother, so celebrating this notion is in keeping with our belief. Sending flowers and gifts are now a common practice, so don’t be shy send your Mum a special message on her day; don’t forget to pamper her and let her know you love her!
