Peng Liyuan said "A child's first teacher is its mother." No matter where she is from or what she does, a mother becomes a teacher for her child the moment s/he starts gaining any sense of the world. From mannerisms to even the language we speak, everything gets ingrained within us through our mother. Every mother in this world is precious. The sacrifices she makes, the grudges she chooses not to hold against her family, all that and so much more makes her one of the most selfless beings of all. A very significant quality of a mother is also in her strength. From the beginning of the 9 months itself, she excels at staying strong. There is one such mother who breaks numerous stereotypes of our world, beats all odds, showcases more strength than ever and teaches us the real strength a mom can hold - the single mother.
Is It Hard Being A Single Mother In India?
Our society has now grown and become more respectful of single mothers. However, that was not the case for a very long time. From being seen as outcasts to being treated as worthless, single moms everywhere have had to struggle in many more ways than usual. At a time when women were supposed to be taking care of their households while their husbands earned the bread and butter, many women had faced early widowhood and were put to the test. As any mother does, those mothers too did not take a step back and took care of their families. How do we know this? Look around, you will find so many grandmothers out there who would have a plethora of stories to tell you about the time when she fed her children by stitching from day to night; working in houses and garnering any money that she could, then returning home and cooking and still being just as loving and caring.
It does not take a genius to see the amount of strength - physical, mental and emotional - that must have been required for these mothers to fight all odds and raise responsible and happy children.
That is why we at bigsmall.in urge all of you to not forget the single moms on this 14th May, 2023 on Mother's Day. It is time that we appreciate all the single mothers out there, even the now-grandmas, for all the sacrifices they have made to ensure that their kids don't feel the lack of love and support in their family.
