The second Sunday of May is dedicated to the selfless being we all know as a mother. She does all she can to help and protect her child as long as she lives. Motherhood is said to be a rebirth for a woman after the excruciating pain she goes through during child birth.
Yesterday, National Geographic Channel was airing a special program called 'In the Womb' on the occasion of Mother's Day. The entire process of birth - from conception to delivery - was shown in vivid detail. One can't help but marvel at this miracle of Nature. It is the ultimate system in the universe. The power to create life has been bestowed on women, and that makes me a proud member of the feminine species!
To the woman who gave birth to me, to the woman who gave birth to my Ji, and thus gave me an eternal gift, and to all mothers all over the world, a Happy Mother's Day!
