Description

People who deny the existence of God are not hard to find, but nowhere can find a person who has denied the existence of mother. A popular Telugu song has lyrics to this effect. No statement can hold more truth, for this world exist because there is a mother.

The mother occupies a special place in one's life, which cannot be replaced by anyone else. The strongest bond a human being has is with that of the mother. The umbilical cord ties the child to the mother. Though the child attains freedom with the cutting of the cord, the sensitive central spot remains indelible and fragrant throughout its life.

All illustrious daughters have learnt to acknowledge and appreciate positive qualities in their mothers. Though they shared close bond with their mothers, some were not vocal about it when their mothers were alive, and this silence found expression in some way or the other in their writings and the way they related with their own children in their later lives.

Daughters become mothers and bring in a fresh realization of the ever-turning wheel of creation. When the mother comes alive in the daughter's motherhood, the mother is reborn. Like the legendary phoenix, the birth of the mother happens again and again, making a statement that eternity is reiterated through generations.
