‘My mother is simple— and extraordinary’: PM Modi's emotional note on her mother turning 100
PM Modi had penned an emotional blogpost in June this year when Heeraben entered her 100th years. He said his mother was a simple yet EXTRAORDINARY WOMAN LIKE ALL MOTHERS
He said Mother — is not just any other word in the dictionary. It encompasses a whole range of emotions love, patience, trust, and a lot more. Across the world, irrespective of country or region, children have a special affection for their mothers. A mother not only gives birth to her children, but also shapes their mind, their personality and self confidence. And while doing so, mothers selflessly sacrifice their own personal needs and aspirations.
Today, I feel extremely happy and fortunate to share that my that my mother Smt Heeraba Modi is entering 100th year. This is going to be her birth centenary year. If my father had been alive,he too would have celebrated his 100th birthday last week. Earlier, there was no custom of celebrating birthdays in our family.
However, children from the younger generations planted 100 trees to remember my father on his birthday.
I have no doubt that everything good in my life, and all that is good in my character, can be attributed to mother. Today, as I sit in Delhi, I am filled with memories from the past. A mother’s penance creates a good human being. Her affection fills a child with human values and empathy.It is often said that Gods are made according to the nature of devotees.Similarly, we experience our mothers and their motherhood according to our own nature and mindset.
