HE/SHE/THEY are MOTHERS!
"I was a bud until she decided to fall down from the brownest branch!
Reviving through her journey all night made my petals of shoulders open and I stretched my identity towards being a flower.
I was a feeble plant until she hold my roots being the soil.
Beautifying her fierce grace she was the storm who broke the gigantic tree into pieces but I stood quiet learning my survival."
Mother(Maa) the sweetest, kindest and the deepest word in the eternity of this metaphorical universe.
Those dreamy eyes captures the dream of the child at once and throws away the unfinished reel from the oldest camera as dark circles guards the eyes forever in a fort of responsibilities. For a woman this is a feeling that comes even before the world welcomes the child, a journey that starts from womb and never ends. This feeling comes with ultimate duties, responsibilities, unconditional love, protection, sacrifices and a huge strength. It's truly said that, God can't be everywhere so they created mothers.
Whenever a child falls down it screams as 'Maa', when an infant gets hungry the sparkling tiny eyes searches for the mother. When a toddler goes to the school for the first time, he/she wants mother to be on their side.
But, Is it necessary that the woman who kept the foetus in her womb for straight 9 months resisting numerous pain and problems can only be a mother? Is it mandatory that only in the most precious moment when she holds her baby for the first time she becomes a mother?
Deep inside every heart will answer a 'No'.
MOTHER IS AN EMOTION NOT A GENDER.
Every heart which feels for a child, every body which works for a child, every eye which sheds tears for a child is a Mother. Shifting a vision slightly from the dystopian surrounding towards the utopian, I see a SINGLE FATHER trying his best to fulfill the void of a mother. That sense of helplessness catering his eyes, when his empty heart becomes numb and his lips remains unuttered but still he tries his best to sing a lullaby carrying the child on his lap so that the child never feels the absence of the mother. Taking the place of a mother is the toughest, but the tireless attempt finally makes him a mother in a true sense. In a parallel scenario, witnessing a SINGLE UNMARRIED MOTHER dealing with the countless taboos of the society, the largest discriminations, the numerous words of aspersion. Without any support or recognition of the father, she finally becomes a rebel for the sake of her child. She forgets every bit of pain while staring at the holy gigglings. Hence, everyday struggle becomes her routine as she just wants her child to get the best life possible.
And what for those who can't give birth being a mother or can't even get the status of a father? Can't they be a great mother? Can't they have that pinch of happiness, that portion of satisfaction of having a child?
A TRANSGENDER can also be a great mom and can raise a child with utmost care and love and can give a beautiful life! Maybe the almighty made them a bit different in terms of organs but they have that same emotional heart which makes them a mother. Worrying about the upbringing of the child rather than worrying of the gender of the human matters way more.
A mother can be anyone of any age. Being a mother is that job in which one never wants to remain absent for the upcoming challenges.
I have seen how a TEENAGER GIRL took that wounded stray puppy with her at her home and cured it, cared for it and she was the one who used to talk with the puppy, pamper it, feed it and play with it. Her emotional connect with the puppy was visible as a string of a motherly trait.
"What if there was never a bud and directly a flower abruptly?" A baseless questions it seems to be, but not in real.
"The INNOCENT GIRL of 7 years had to become a mother of her 2 yr old sister, when their mother was diagnosed with last stage cancer.
Finance backlashed at once and the father had no option left behind.
Seeing the mother lying on bed everyday knowing that her death is approaching!
7 year old Riku learnt to feed her 2 year old sister Juhi, learnt to dressup her own, learnt to wash their clothes and even learnt to sing a lullaby for her sister."
Maybe, the pathetic circumstances left no choice for Riku and her budding childhood faded in the process of being a mother to her tiny sister.
Simultaneously Circumstances and Choices makes one a mother. Hence, MOTHER IS AN EMOTION NOT A GENDER so HE/SHE/THEY are MOTHERS!!!!!
