Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother Heerabaa passed away at the age of 100 Years. Words of sympathy feel inadequate in expressing grief and sorrow for a loss a mother. The death of a mother is one of the painful moments one can experience in life. Mother is the most selfless person in this world who starts loving her children even before they come into this world. Nothing could be compared to a mother’s love in this world as it is the purest form of love. Mother is like an angel for her child. God’s best creation on the universe is Mother. The love a son shows for his mother cannot be described. Also, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a lot of love for his mother Heerabaa. Behind a person’s success, the most efforts who put, is the only one, the mother. Mother is the first teacher for the child who teaches about good or bad things of life. Modi rightly points out that Mother is not just any other word in the dictionary…it encompasses a whole range of emotions – love, patience, trust, and a lot more”.,
When Modi met her on 100th birthday, she said one thing “Always remember – Work with intelligence, live life with purity.”Sharing her picture, PM said, “In Maa I have always felt that trinity, which contains the journey of an ascetic, the symbol of a selfless Karmayogi and a life committed to values.”
Modi’s mother Heerabaa was an epitome of generosity, simplicity, hard work and high values of life.The death of a mother leaves such a void in one’s life that is impossible to fill. After God, it is our mother who has the most special place in our hearts and our lives. Since the birth of a child, a mother forms a precious and special bond with him. Without thinking about herself, she thinks about her child and his happiness. Heeraba was married to Damodardas Mulchand Modi. PM Modi’s father was a tea seller. In 2015, in a famous interview with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, PM Modi became emotional while talking about his mother. She avoided seeking help from others and wanted to be self-reliant. Modi describes his mother as a “pillar of his life.” Mother’s love for us is unlimited, unconditional and unforgettable for a child which gives him power to face each tough situation which comes in life. She shined so bright that the memory of her light will never dim.
Recalling hardships his mother faced during her childhood, Modi points out that his mother was as simple as she was extraordinary. Just like all mothers. Modi’s parents never left the path of honesty or compromised on their self-respect. Constant hardwork was their foremost mantra to overcome any challenge.PM Modi has written recounting the early days of family hardship that his mother used to wash utensils at a few houses to help meet the household expenses. She would also take out time to spin the charkha to supplement our meagre income. She was the synonyms of care, sacrifice or selflessness. Regarding cleanliness Modi says that his mother is dedicated to hygiene and “would not tolerate even a speck of dust on the bed. A slight crease meant that the bed sheet would be dusted and laid again. All of us were very careful about this habit as well.”
We are very fortunate to have a mother in our life, and we must respect our mother. We should give her all the happiness and love because she deserves all of that in return for her selfless love for us. Let us be always thankful to God for giving unique qualities to Mothers like Heerabaa who are caring, helping nature, sacrificing, forgiving, and always putting others before themselves.
