An Ode To The Special Woman In My Life

‘I am writing a Tribute to Mom in association with Parentous.com

Women are an integral part of everyone’s life .She is a wife, daughter, boss, sister,aunt , granny .She makes our lives complete.A woman has touched everyone’s life in some or the other way. Today I wish to make a special mention of the woman who made me what I am and still manages to stay in the backlight. Two words I type about her and my eyes swell with tears of pride. Here am talking about my Mom., who may not even read this article unlike others. I have been thinking to write about her since so many  days but then everytime something or the other cropped up.Now when I sit across the other end of the globe, all I have on my mind is My mom!!!
Managing her studies and mine both at the same time, she managed to make me a dancer,singer,writer,and an engineer.quite a feat!!! Typing up my braids in the morning to bringing me back home from the nursery  she managed to do it all. I have always had issues with my parents regarding the fact why they didn’t have much time for both sisters and why both of my parents had to work.But today I have my answer with me .And I am not sure whether I could be such a wonderful mom to my kids and make them what my mom made me!!! I don’t know how she feels seeing me and my sista all grown up and settled but my friend says she was proud of me making it to USA- her biggest dream !!!
Today when I see kids, they are so indisciplined,and the innocence all gone.And the parents stiIl go ga-ga over their kids.I still remember being tied up to a sewing machine for being rude for hours until I apologized.Spare the rod and spoil the child this is what I have always believed in.And even today I feel the need to ask my mom before going out.
Most of my friends know what kind of a personality my mom is- superstitious to the core, extremely friendly , panicky and someone who speaks her heart. She is a motor mouth and a loud mouth too and has no qualms about the same. She is someone who bargains with the shopkeeper , leaves the shop and makes promises never to return to that dirty shop again, and still returning back after a few minutes to the same shop and buying the same stuff .She is someone who would be very sure that her daughter is into an affair with the worst guy ever in her class . She is someone who believes three people setting out for some good work is going to bring lots of problems .She is someone who wants her daughter to wear dupatta pinned on both sides like a typical Aunty and she thinks that’s the latest fashion. She is someone who finds matches for her daughter’s friends and scares the hell outta them. She is someone who exclaimed seeing her daughter (I)standing with the CEO of the company in a picture and then asking her,” No wonder you are going to USA”. And I was like “yeah I don’t work et all…. I go to USA just because I pose “ She is someone who thinks wearing one piece dress is equivalent to wearing nothing .She is someone who keeps talking when the TV is on with,”Dekho dekho what she has worn”. She is someone whom you confide about someone and say and she blurts it out infront of the same person. Like it happened that day, I was talking about my cousin’s husband and I passed a remark that ,”OMG!!! He just doesn’t talk …phew!!!” .And after sometime it happened we bumped into him and the first comment my mom made was,”Chitra was saying you never talk and it turns her off!!” And she laughed as if she had cracked a great joke..Thats my mom for you. She is someone who gets carried away by emotions, and would want her daughter to go on touching everyone’s feet at social occasions even if I don’t have an ounce of respect for them. She would be like,”Chitra , touch Radha Aunty’s feet” and I would be like god!!!!She is someone who starts panicking when the clock ticks 9pm and the endless calls would start.There were days when my friends thought I had a secret boyfriend- thanks to the endless time I used to spend with the phone.My mom is extremely cool about my friend's boyfriends - doesnt matter even if its four or ten.. she would be like so whats the big deal.... yeah the big deals start only with your daughter...
She is someone who would see all the mallu guys as the prospective grooms for me... She would pray to GOD!!!,"i just hope this guy becomes my son - in - law".Thanks to all those guys ,they have become my good friends and they have managed to get married to their girlfriends ... :):) thank you guys!!! am indebted forever!! :P

However she is, she is a unique package of unconditional love and affection. SHE  IS MY MOM!! My pride, my creator, one with whom I fight the most, but without whom I am incomplete.She has made me what I am today.The efforts and perseverance, not to forget the endless sacrifice that she has put up to bring me up is commendable and i doubt whether i can do it for my own kids someday. I may not be able to say all this to her but just hope one day she would read this……

Happy Mother's Day MOM- The Most Special Woman in My Life….!!!!My Life Is Incomplete Without You!!!

  4. A hats-off tribute to your mom and you. Moms are the best. The only God whom we know, whom we can see, whom we love. I can't tell you in words how touchy this post is. Every word you wrote hit the nail and made my heart beat fast. The pinned kurta fashion, you going to US 'coz of a photo pose ( ridiculous), touching feets, son-in-law in every other friend, bargaining with shopkeepers, being an open mouth to everyone, and the tying of you to sewing machine.Ahh! A post I'll read again and again. It's making me nostalgic.

    Last year, I too wrote a poem for my mom on Mother's day. I called her to say, " I wrote a poem for you". She said,"In english??". I said,"Ofcouse". She said,"Don't break the legs of English. Translate it in hindi" But how could I translate that in hindi. If I do, it will make me cry :( Sometimes the emotions are better woven in English. I know your mom wont read it just like my mom but still it feels good to show the world how much they mean to us. Kudos!
    Silly Smiles... Take you Miles :)
