Gave wings to fly: Celebrities talk about their mothers on Mother’s Day
It’s Mother’s Day on May 12. Moms make our lives better, and we should appreciate them every day for all they do, not just on Mother's Day. This day is all about celebrating moms—the women who gave birth to us, our first teacher, and our forever guardian. We spoke to a few celebrities and asked them about the best advice they had received from their mothers, and here’s what they had to say:

Saanand Verma

Nothing is better than your mom. She is like a goddess. Har jagah bhagwaan nahi ja sakte, isliye bhagwaan ne maa banai (God couldn’t be everywhere, and that’s why he made mothers), which is true. My mom is my god. I have named my bungalow after my mom, and my house's name is Veena Bhawan. I love my mom, and today, whatever I am, it’s all because of her blessings. Whenever I meet her or leave the house, I always touch her feet. Even when I go to sleep, I touch her feet. She always takes care of me more than anything. Those who have a mom are really lucky. My mom has always advised me to do good work, never think ill of anyone, and always be happy.

Aadesh Chaudhary

I am very close to my mom. As soon as I wake up in the morning, I talk to her. One piece of advice that my mom has always given me is not to hurt anyone or cheat them. Also, if someone comes to your home, always serve them food and be humble and nice.

Varsha Hegde

Mother's Day holds special significance for me because, at the young age of 19, I became a mother while still a teenager myself. My own mother played a pivotal role in my life. She introduced me to dancing. Despite many financial constraints, she never discouraged me. Instead, she gave me wings to fly at a very young age. She is the creator who shaped me into the woman I am today, capable of being a mother myself. Whichever life I get, I aspire to be a woman so that I can experience motherhood, and I will always cherish her as my mother.

Gauravv Mukesh

There are many good things she has taught and still teaches me. Once she told me, ‘Life is like a book. Just like you start a new story or new plot on a new page, life is also about new things that you should learn and understand. Every book has its own value, just like our lives. Make your life like a book, so whoever reads it will appreciate you and get to learn. Your character should be so nice that people remember you like a good book.’

Anupama Solanki

A mother will always be a mother; there's nobody like her in the universe. A mother is akin to a god, and this is a universal truth. Since God cannot directly appear in front of us, he made mothers to always be with us. I always follow my mother’s advice, and I have learned hard work and purity from her. A mother cannot be described in a single word because she encompasses the universe, and just as we cannot fully describe the earth, we cannot fully describe her.

Vaishali Made

As a mother, I believe that experiencing motherhood is a beautiful journey. Transitioning from being a daughter to becoming someone's mother is incredibly special. Every daughter embarks on a new chapter in life, distinct from her past experiences. After becoming a mom, the love, responsibility, and dedication to fulfilling all duties while occasionally forgetting oneself, encapsulate the essence of motherhood. 

Poonam Shende

The best advice I received from my mother is that no matter what life throws at you, you have to keep smiling and working towards your goals with 100 percent effort. As a school teacher, she instilled in us the values of punctuality, discipline, and a never-give-up attitude. Since childhood, we have witnessed how perfectly a woman can balance her professional and personal lives while also prioritizing her own well-being, especially in terms of health.

Manjari Mishra

My bond with my mother has always been, and will forever remain, very special. A mother is someone without whom life wouldn’t be possible. It's not just about giving birth; she is the person with whom our first bond is created. She is our first teacher. Today, whenever I return home, the first person I call out to is my mom. The biggest lesson I learned from my mom is strength. Since childhood, I have seen her tackle and conquer any difficult situation. Also, whenever I face any trouble in my life, my first thought is of my mom and how she dealt with everything; it's then that I can't stop. There are so many things that we learn from our mom.

Gulfam Khan Hussain

I lost my mom at a very young age; I was in my 20s and didn't anticipate the impact it would have, not only on me but on our entire family. She was the anchor that held our ship steady. If our father was the North Star, she was the Moon that illuminated our souls—and coincidentally, her name was Chand, too. I cherish countless 'moments' with my mother. In her subtle way, she guided us (and continues to do so). She taught me that nothing is wasted; every experience is either a victory or a lesson. She never engaged in gossip, believing that others' lives were not our concern. She valued actions over words. Not a day passes without thoughts of my parents. They were the best thing to happen to everyone around them. If I could, I would travel back in time to express my boundless love to her and capture countless memories with her on camera.
