Every year on the second Sunday of May, people around the world celebrate International Mother's Day, honoring maternal figures and their selfless contributions through expressions of love and gratitude.

Mother’s Day has deep roots in ancient Greek and Roman traditions, with its official recognition as a national holiday in the US dating back to 1914. Anna Jarvis, known for initiating Mother’s Day in 1908 in memory of her own mother, set the tradition on the second Sunday of May.

Reflecting on the essence of motherhood, various renowned personalities have shared their perspectives. Mahatma Gandhi remarked, ‘It may be possible to gild pure gold, but who can make his mother more beautiful?’ while Rabindranath Tagore described a mother’s love as a ‘divine melody’ that binds hearts together.

Swami Vivekananda’s words capture the essence of a mother, stating, ‘Mother represents colorless love that knows no barter, love that never dies.’ In contemporary literature, authors like Chetan Bhagat emphasize the silent heroism of motherhood, shaping generations with unspoken sacrifices.

Arundhati Roy beautifully encapsulates the sentiment, stating, ‘The heart of a mother is a reservoir of strength, a wellspring of compassion, and an ocean of unconditional love.’

Messages of appreciation flood social media platforms on Mother’s Day, with individuals expressing profound gratitude to their mothers for their unwavering support, guidance, and love. Heartfelt messages like ‘Thanks for everything Mom, you really are one in a million!’ resonate across the globe.
