In this world, especially in India, a daughter is often expected to be the shadow of her mother. Remember the famous emotional lines of the song, “Meri Chayya hai jo… aapke ghar chali…from the movie ‘Hum aapke Hai Kaun’ perfectly depicting the bond between a mother and a daughter. But it’s not that girls are a replica of their mothers neither the mother wants them to be so. The mothers want their daughters to be far better versions of them and walk on the earth with high respect. This mother’s day let’s take a glimpse of how daughters from around define their mothers and their impact.
POOJA GUPTA (MOTHER – RUNNING TWO BRANCHES OF A REPUTED BEAUTY SALON)
ANURISHA GUPTA SACHDEVA (INTERNATIONAL MAKE UP ARTIST )
“My mom is my inspiration on both professional and personal fronts and her passionate working attitude made me take up her field on a much advanced level. Her long working hours had never affected her caring attitude or responsibilities towards me and she has taken care of every little task from dressing up for school to tiffin to friends to giving advice and having debates in almost all ages of my life. , details Anurisha. My calm and humble attribute with perfection at work front is what I derive from her.
DR. NEELOO MISHRA (MOTHER – GYNAECOLOGIST),
ANUKRITI MISHRA (DAUGHTER – SR. SOFTWARE ENGINEER NOIDA)
Anukriti shares, “MOM, this three-letter word is my whole world. It’s very common for people to make a comparison between mothers and their daughter but I am blessed to have such a wonderful person as my mother. She is a well-known gynaecologist who gave up her career to shape up her daughters. She took a long break at the crucial age span of our upbringing so that she could devote all her time and focus on us for the right decisions and choices. My ability to handle problems with a calm and composed attitude is what I have naturally received from her.
REKHA AGARWAL (MOTHER — HOUSEWIFE)
RASHMI BANSAL( DAUGHTER – ADVOCATE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA )
My mother is very quiet, calm and gentle. I don’t remember that she had ever talked in a high pitch with her children. Opposite her, I have been very loud, straight forward and fierce. The best upbringing rule my mother has followed that she let me be in almost every facet of life, right from the getting ready for school to party to dress up to make up to debate to study to argue to fight and above all to stand for others. She never interfered but only counselled as to how the things should be, how to respond and never to react. Her quiet and submissive guidance helped me to emerge as a woman of courage with faith that there is no difficulty that cannot be surpassed if you are brave and honest in your heart. Now I am a mother, following the same very rules to make my child independent, confident and decisive.
