My Mother’s Day Blog – a Day Late


I am not a person given to thinking about “Days” – it seems too much like selling out – to commercialization . But when Mother’s day arrived – what did I do? I kept telling AppaPappa Noyonika wants to get me a mother’s day gift, she really does.. until he actually went and got me a lovely pair of earrings and beautiful bangles. What I will do for gifts!!

Noyonika made me a card wishing me for Mother’s day.

I remembered the cake I baked for my Ma last mother’s day when I was in Guwahati. I posted about this on that day.
Sigh.. she’s so far away this time. I was jealous of my neighbours – they’d come to wish me and got me a lovely potted plant, and had to leave in a hurry as they were visiting their Mom. Why do we have to stay so from our parents – is it worth being so far away from family? Appa pappa and I are having such existential questions these days.

Oh no, this is quickly turning into a blog about something other than Mother’s Day. Or maybe not. If Mother’s Day is to celebrate Ma’s and Moms and Mother’s and Maters and Mommys then can I be blamed if my thinking goes to my own Ma and how far we are from her?

    How lovely! But yes, what we women have to to do to make these men churn out gifts and stuff for us ๐Ÿ˜€

    Even I’m not in for special one day celebrations of mother or father days!

    But this year I also got to celebrate it! ๐Ÿ™‚
