Mothers are the greatest gift of God to humankind and motherhood to womankind. The voice of a mother soothes the heart beat of an infant who though does not understand words but feels the tangibility of the comfort and the love that the presence of his mother brings. The word ‘Mother’ epitomizes love, compassion, selflessness and sacrifice and rings in an inundation of emotions at the very mention of its name. The title itself elevates the persona of the bearer and adds an awe-inspiring aura to them, be it Mother Teresa or Mother Mary.
