Happy Mother's Day

In the heat of preparation most of us neglect our social ties and stay cocooned in our homes or accos in coaching towns.

I also stayed anonymous for around 2.5 years thinking towing the popular line that it somehow assists in preparation. But I was wrong. Once I came out of the self imposed asylum and reworked my family, friendship and social ties, I realized that it is a support system instead of being a drag. Family and friends encourage you and catch if you fall.

And this thought was strengthened when recently my grandmother was lost to heavens. I realized how much I miss her and I could easily have interacted more with her during preparation years without affecting prep. Thus this odd thread.

------------------------

A very happy mother's day to all aspirants.

God bless your mother who gave birth to a fighter spirited soul. All the best for preparation. :smile:

    Is everyday Monday, or a full moon day, or Diwali or Christmas ??
    There will definitely be days on which you will be mad at your mum. But today you can show unbridled love and respect to her. For a reason.
