Mothers are irreplaceable!

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Film star Shah Rukh Khan posted, on Twitter, a photograph of wife Gauri and daughter Suhana preparing for a party with the caption: “Was reading and came across this line…‘Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother’ and then this picture of the ladies…sach hi hai!!” Is Shah Rukh perhaps trying to say is that each one of us has to learn the lessons of life on our own through trial and error without a God-given instruction manual to ease the process? But that God (or Nature!) gives us a mother to guide us along the right path and pick us up when we stumble? It is widely said that mothers are strength, wisdom and love personified to the children who love them. As American poet Maya Angelou wrote: “To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colours of a rainbow.” And philosopher Daisaku Ikeda says: “As long as they remember their mothers, people will not go astray. If they forget their mothers, however, the road of life becomes perilous.” Indeed, it is a spiritual connection, or as Oprah Winfrey puts it: “I believe the choice to become a mother is the choice to become one of the greatest spiritual teachers there is.” Talk show host Simi Garewal summarised this dimension of existence succinctly while retweeting Shah Rukh’s post on his wife and their daughter with her own tweet: “Deep thoughts”.
