Today is the International Mother's Day
International Mother’s Day is being observed in the country on Sunday as elsewhere across the world, showing deep respect and profound love for mothers.
Different socio-cultural organisations have chalked up various programmes to mark the day in a befitting manner. The programmes include rally and discussion.
People, particularly boys and girls, will wish their mothers on the day.
It is a great opportunity for them to pour their feelings and emotions on their mothers.
Mothers will also reciprocate their inherent and eternal love for their children on the occasion.
The day is observed at different dates in different countries. Modern celebrations of the day originated in the North America.
The day is aimed at establishing influence of mothers in society. In neighbouring India, the day is observed on second Sunday in the month of May.
The celebration of the day first started in the ancient era by the Greek and Romans. It is observed in the UK as a Mothering Sunday.
