This Mother’s Day, actors share their wonderful memories with their moms and what they have learnt from them!
Shashank Vyas: My mom was my teacher, mentor, guide. There are many lessons that she taught me. There are few I have successfully followed in my life but that’s very difficult for me. I learned kindness and understanding the other person’s pain and took it as my own. Every day spent with her is memorable for me. As a child, I remember, I used to tell her that once I grow, I ‘ll marry you as you cook so well, you look pretty. My imagination of an idol woman is her. The teaching of Krishna is her name, Geeta.
Rishina Kandhari: Never stop learning is what my mother has taught me. So, I keep learning a new thing every now and then. I’ve become a jack of all treads all thanks to her. There are many fond childhood memories of mom and me one of them is that my mom used to take me for swimming and I remember I used to hang on her back while she used to swim. Her strength, her style, her sensibilities, I’ve inherited. Her name is Kalpna Awasthi.
Sharad Malhotra: My mother Neera Malhotra is in Kolkata. I am going to miss her. I have so much memories of childhood. She is my strength. I would have loved to be with my mother on mother’s day but that is not possible. I talk to her daily and would do a video call on mother’s day.
Kettan Singh: Now, staying at home, I have realized how much I have missed talking to my mother. I only live with my mother over here. I will be with my mom on Mothers Day and will cook something special for her. I will also play the guitar for her on Mothers Day
Vijayendra Kumeria: The greatest learning from my mother is to stay grounded and always remember where you started. My fondest memory is that when I was a kid, my mom used to make me dress up like Krishna on every Janmashtami and ask my dad to click a lot of photos of me in that look. So, once I must have done some mischief and she started scolding me while I was still in that avatar and I objected to her behaviour and said how can you talk to God like that! And she started laughing and hugged me. I will never forget that laughter and hug.
Arjun Bijlani: My mother Shakti Bijlani is in Malad and I am in Andheri. My mother has supported me at all stages of my life. Her contribution in my life is so much that I have no words to express my gratitude towards her. She has taught me what unconditional love is all about.
Amal Sehrawat: A mother is every child’s first teacher and I am no exception. She has taught me the philosophy of life that live in the present, learn from the past, and be optimistic about the future. Every Sunday, my mom used to make my favourite sugar toasts and then we would spend the entire morning watching cartoons together.
Amit Sarin: The greatest learning from my mother is to never give up. This leads to understanding of patience and perseverance. I lost my mother to cancer when I was in the 10th grade. She was a fighter, at the same time, she had the ability to live life to the fullest. There was never a dull moment for her. She believed life has so much to offer and it’s better to experience it and pass it to others in the journey. She’s always with me.
Jasmin Bhasin: The greatest learning that I have got from my mother is to face your fear and challenges and not hide away from the. My fondest childhood memory is when my mom used to bake a cake for me every time I scored good marks in my school tests. They used to taste divine and no cake in the world can beat it. Her name is Gurmeet Kaur.
Mrunal Jain: My mother Vidya is my everything. She has given me unconditional love. I still sometimes eat from her hands. She has given me an excellent upbringing. I can’t think of life without my mother. She cooks excellent Jain food for me and I am proud of my mom and want her to feel proud of me one day when I get the kind of success which she feels I deserve. I am spending a lot of time with her right now, something which I never get to do.
Vikas Sethi: My Mother’s name is Suraksha Sethi. I have learnt everything from her. She is stuck in Ludhiana right now and from there also, she is worried about my health and food. There are no words to describe the importance and definitions of a mother. Maa is the only word comes out from your mouth when you are in trouble or get wounded.
Aniruddh Dave: I try to go to Jaipur to meet my mom Rajula Dave every year but this year courtesy lockdown I am stuck. She is my inspiration and strength. She always supported me in my career choice and has taught me to be humble always. She always says, “It is nice to be important but it is more important to be nice”.
Arun Mandola: The greatest thing that I have learned from my mother is that she had faced lots of problems. When she was a small child, her mother died and at the age of 18, she got married. After marriage, she faced lots of crisis but she handled everything very nicely and never complained anything from god. These qualities I have learned from her. We belong to a lower-middle-class family and in my childhood, I was very stubborn. I wouldn’t eat food, so she would give me 5 Rs or 10 Rs for eating food.
Sudipto Balav: My mother’s name was Dipti Balav and she was a very hardworking lady as she was a working lady. She used to manage her house as well as the office wonderfully. I was not very good at studies. One thing my mother would say to me which I applied in my life was that whatever you do, give it your 100 percent. If you don’t give your 100 percent, you are not going to succeed. When she used to be in the kitchen, I used to help her and that helped me to develop an interest in cooking. I took it to the next level by opening a restaurant. She taught me a lot of Bengali traditional dishes.
