“Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face” – George Eliot
Gather around folks, for all around the world on 10th May, we celebrate the beautiful concept of honoring the caring, devoted species we call ‘mother’. On the second Sunday in May, we celebrate the loving, nurturing side of women. So pick up the phone first thing this morning and wish that blessed lady who stayed up all those nights with you helping with projects and standing by you at every phase of your life.
What are you doing for your mother this Mother’s day? Is it a spa day, a thoughtful card, a little knick knack or maybe her favorite ice cream? Every mother deserves to be pampered and made much of. She’s the reason you’re filled with nostalgia when you look back on your carefree childhood days. Every time you had a craving for spice, she’d whip up your favorite curry; on special nights it was biryani. When you complained about your tiffin being boring you’d get pasta and crackers the next day. She’d pore over different cook books tirelessly in an attempt to find interesting recipes that incorporated vegetables you threw tantrums over. Come summer and you’d anticipate the exciting mango dishes and refreshing ‘aam panna’ while winter vacations were sweet treats with the best ‘gajar ka halwa’ in town. And those terrible times in college when the hostel food made you ache for your ‘Maa ke haath ka khana’. Because let’s face it, she made the most delicious light, fluffy cakes you’ve ever eaten.
All those years spent trying to persuade you to finish your veggies and drink up the juice. You don’t think that was an easy task, do you? Because you were quite a handful. Now it’s time to dish up a little love for her. If you know your way about the kitchen, you could cook some of her favorites. Breakfast in bed for the dear lady. And if cooking is not really your forte, you could order in or take her out and have her dine in style. Because you don’t want her to end up with food poisoning over your failed attempt at a risotto :p. Kind of puts a damper on the whole thing. And that’s precisely what we are here for!
Trust us to make this day special for your special mama. Thai, Mexican, Mughlai or traditional Indian; you name it, we delyver it. Give her sweet, give her spice, give her the best of what she likes. Make your mother smile today. But remember that of all the gifts you lavish on her, you will never be able to repay the love and care she lavished on you.
