A mother is an epitome of love and sacrifice. Her concern towards her children knows no limits. Mother’s Day is a celebration that honors mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March, April, or May.
History:
Julia Ward Howe was the first to proclaim Mother’s Day in 1870. Her Mother’s Day Proclamation was a pacifist reaction to the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then began a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis’ holiday was adopted by other countries and it’s now celebrated all over the world.
In India:
The concept of celebrating Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May is very new in India and it can be said that in a time span of less than a decade, Mother’s Day has become a great success In India, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. In Hindu tradition it is called “Mata Tirtha Aunshi” or “Mother Pilgrimage fortnight”. And on this great eve we are reminded of few remarkable contributions from moms for their children that refreshes all the wounds that anyone has suffered so far.
In recent news, a mother gave second life to her ten year old daughter.  Ten-year-old Harshita, a Class IV student was diagnosed with jaundice in March this year, following which her liver developed severe complications and was damaged.

Another brave heart is a mother of a 15-year-old boy who gifted him what he needed the most: a kidney to save his life.

“My mom is the biggest stress-buster in my life” quips Shiv Anant Tayal, the lad who cracked civil services exams this year ranking 68. “Although I have been a teacher, I ensured that I was more of a mentor and guide to my son when it came to his preparation for civil services. The right kind of atmosphere is what a mother is expected to maintain at home” says Kamini (Anant’s Mother).
Even the glamor industry is not untouched from the divine motherhood. Miss Universe and Bollywood star Sushmita Sen who has adopted two daughters says, “I will tell my girl she was not born from the tummy, she was born from the heart”. Same can be said about all those young, single women who have adopted children in need of mommies and embraced motherhood with their heart!
Today the whole country is in ecstasy celebrating the mother’s day. 
Send cards to your mom; make a meal for her so that she can have a day’s rest from the kitchen. Thank your mother for bringing you up in this wonderful world and enlightening you with all the good things and correcting you when you went wrong, standing beside you when the odds were against you. So make her feel important on the day and be happy about mothering caring children. Mothers should be pampered on this day by children. We should acknowledge the unconditional love and care of our Mom and celebrate this joyous fest as Mother’s Day -today and forever!!!
Wishing all the mothers a very happy and special Mother’s day…
