Mother’s Day
‘Mother’s Day’ is written by Shiv K. Kumar. The poem contrasts Indian and western way of giving respect to mother. The mothers in India do not deserve only one day of the year to be dedicated to them. It will be disrespect to our mothers. Our value system demands that we should pay our respect to mother every day. This is the only way to respond to a mother’s blessings.
