Mother's Day is coming up this weekend. Here's a very unique mother's day idea to spend the day with kids who have no mother.
Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend. But what about the thousands of children who don’t have a mother?
“The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the love of a mother.” – Therese of Lisieux
Some say mothers are not rare! We all have mothers or how could we have possibly come into this world? Yes! It is true, it is our mothers who bring us into this world, but is each one of us lucky enough to experience that unconditional love of a mother?
Whether due to economic setbacks or societal pressure or the gender of the child, there are many unfortunate children living around us who are deprived of the purest form of love, a mother’s love. They live in orphanages and long to be hugged and experience a love that has no strings attached.
This Sunday, 8th of May, many of us will be celebrating Mother’s Day. It is a special day that has been dedicated to all the mothers in our lives to thank them for all the hardships and pain that each one of them go through in bringing up the kids and taking care of their families.
And on this day, we all strive to get the best gifts for our mothers so that we can honour them in the best way possible.
As we are busy thinking of the best gifts for our mothers, or looking forward to a day spent enjoying ourselves with our children, can we spare a moment for the unfortunate ones who don’t get to experience this love; who aren’t lucky enough to have a mother in their lives and are deprived of this love?
This year Mother’s Recipe has stepped in to fill in this gap for 500 children living in 15 orphanages across the country and gift them a day of happiness.
While many modern orphanages do provide their young inhabitants with the basics of life, it is true that they rarely get to celebrate a special day, or have fun out of the routine. This is where we can make a difference.
So instead of a brunch out, why not celebrate this Mother’s Day by spending a day at an orphanage with children? In the process, you not only give your time to a worthy cause, but also gift yourself the company of some wonderful kids.
Make this Mother’s Day more innovative, memorable and resourceful with the concept of #MotherForAll and celebrate it the Mother’s Recipe way! For all our readers in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Bengaluru & Kolkata, do visit the Mother’s Recipe FB page for more details.

I was so engrossed in looking after my daughter, being both a mom and dad for her, that I myself no longer existed...
Being a single mother, my world revolves around my daughter.
Whatever people may say, the bond that exists between us is very different from a regular mother-daughter relationship. Navya, my daughter is the reason I am alive today.
This statement may sound cliched, but that is the biggest truth of my life. She is the reason I stopped myself from jumping off a local train years ago. The fact that she was growing inside me, that tiny speck of tissue in my uterus, had the strength to twine around my legs and hold me inside the train.
Once you reach 45, it's time to let go of expectations of how life should be. Give in to your own desires and live for yourself!
Aha! So you are past 45 years of age. Ahem….. And in an introspective world. Did you live right all way so far? Is this the life you wanted?
Are you successful? Has life treated you well? Was it worth so far? Is life slipping by? And biggest of all… Do I really look like over 45 years?
If you have these questions surfacing , simply wedge them out. Whether one wants to or not, we all reach time-bound levels in the game of life. But once you reach the level past 45, the game changes.
