Article Title: Mother’s Day is fine, but when was the last time we laughed with her?

 

Article Summary

 
The article at issue is the author’s cataloguing of the myriad ways in which a mother is indispensable for life. It starts off with the author recounting how his mother asked him questions about his wellbeing, which no one else cared for. He says that she made his house ‘home’ for him, by making him feel wanted and accepted there. In return, she only wanted his time, which he could never give, even though she gave hers to him. In a world of time always running out, he found this a very endearing quality in her. The author expresses regret about the fact that children nowadays, or even youngsters, no longer give their parents attention or affection, cutting them out from their lives. This real life attitude is mirrored by the media, in which movies show a swiftly dwindling impact of the parents in people’s lives. People neglect and abandon parents, and then put up token posts on social media on days like “Mothers’ Day” – this, says the author, serves no valuable purpose. Mothers are treasure troves of love and life lessons, a gift children should cherish forever.
