Bilqees Edhi was a mother countless children looked up to as their own. I met this dynamic lady at her orphanage in 2008, and talked to her about motherhood, the motherless and her own mother. Here is my report of the visit and my impressions of this selfless woman and the beautiful children who got a second lease on life thanks to her.
What do I want my daughter to be and what do I need to become to inspire her? These are difficult, but important, questions that mothers need to have the answers to.
The one aspect of life that only mothers can teach their daughters best is how to react as a woman to different situations — most importantly, how not to take shit from anyone, especially a man.
On this Mother’s Day, let us turn our focus to ourselves, and honestly see what kinds of kids we are for our mothers, and if we are what she deserves. And if we have an honest look at our behaviour towards our mother, and parents in general, we will realise so many things that we are doing right, and which we should continue with, but we will also find some things in our behaviour that can be improved.
It’s like, let’s not ask what mothers do for us, but what we can do for mothers. And this, my friends, will be the best Mother’s Day gift for her.
There are all kinds of fathers, each very special and unique in his own way, adding laughter and lessons in the lives of their little ones. Here is a Father’s Day tribute to my father and all the fathers out there.
A mother is all giving and she rarely asks for anything, except that all her family stays happy and healthy. Stay happy, stay positive and stay connected to your mother during this Covid-19 pandemic.
