It's the day of mothers

Who is a mother? I'm sure the internet/dictionary shows up several brilliant definitions for the term 'mother'. 

Now, let me rephrase the question a little bit, who can be a mother and that too, a good one? The answer is ANYONE. No matter what your age is, what your gender is, what your occupation is or which part of the world you are in, you can be a good mother. There's a good mother inside every single person. 

Many a times, I've had friends who displayed selfless compassion and care when I really needed some. Many a times, I've had strangers who stood by me to ensure I was safe and sound. Many a times, my husband was able to (he still does) sense my thoughts and has done some amazing things to make me feel good. In all those instances, I was being mothered. I've also, seen dogs comforting and caring for people in need, just like some amazing mothers.

Clearly, motherhood is something that is beyond the terminology and its something innate and primal. It constitutes certain transferable qualities that can help make this world a much better place to live in. On this mothers' day, I'm dedicating one of my Kannada original singles to all the mothers out there. The song is composed in raagas, Jog and Abheri.

So, have you had any instance(s) of being mothered? Share your thoughts.
