Mom- a word that summarizes all aspects of unconditional love- a woman that has the power to nurture the Universe! Having a mother is indeed a big blessing while being one is a privilege. Ideally, a mother deserves special attention, love and care every single day, but the fast-running world has a dedicated day for that and this year, the ever-special Mothers’ Day falls on the 12th of May.

The changing face of Indian mothers

 

Dark Grey Rayon Tunic with Embroidery

There were days when Indian mothers- clad in sarees, would be seen running around frantically in the house and trying to keep everyone happy. Well isn’t that exactly how mothers were portrayed in Hindi cinema too? Those were the times when Nirupa Roy and Reema Lagoo were popular Bollywood mothers well, until the new century kicked in and the life of Indian women took off in all directions outside the house. Today, Indian households have new age moms- confident and ambitious! These multi-tasking ladies are adept at keeping up with their responsibilities while not giving up their ‘me-time’. The Indian saree- which was typically labeled as motherly attire has been replaced by contemporary wear- kurtis, tunics and a whole lot of fusion. That reminds me of Kirron Kher and Ratna Pathak playing super cool moms in recent movies, reflecting the new face of Indian mothers.

Pamper yourself on Mothers’ Day

Getting a gift from your kids is definitely a moment to cherish- but there’s an entirely different level of thrill attached to the idea of pampering yourself. Feel free and independent- you know what you like- so go get it! This year, on this special day, treat the voguish lady in you to some closet awesomeness. Scale up to what’s in trend- ensembles like kurtis and tunics that spell vogue and comfort.

A token of love

Perhaps the best gift that you can give to your mother is your time and attention. While nothing can replace the significance and impact of these two, adding some materialistic love always helps in pepping up the lady of your life- the woman who made umpteen sacrifices to give you the best of everything. These trendy and budgeted kurtis are smart gift options for the angel of your life:

Grey and Black Jacquard Silk Printed Kurti

It would be wise to choose a colour from your mother’s list of favourites but well, to be on the safe side you can opt for neutrals or a black kurti.

Let this day be truly special- celebrate the blessing of motherhood with love and delight!
