Lessons From Ma

Posted: May 12, 2012

In honour of Mother’s Day, May’s writing theme is all about mothers. Share the lessons you’ve learnt from your mother, get published and win goodies.

Mothers are our first teachers. Over the years they pass on several nuggets of wisdom, from the small ones like ‘make sure to clean behind your ears’ to the really big ones too. This Mother’s Day, tell us what you leant from your mother. Share your ‘Lessons From Ma’ with us – whether these are touching, inspiring or funny!

Where to send: Send in your story to feedback@womensweb.in with ‘Lessons From Ma’ in the subject line, and your story as a word/txt attachment. Do include the name we should use if we publish it, and a brief introduction to yourself (2-3 lines) in the mail.

By when: Please send in your stories by May 20th. The 5 best stories will be published on Women’s Web the following week, i.e. May 21st onwards.


– The material should be previously unpublished elsewhere. (Copyright stays with you and you’re free to subsequently publish it elsewhere).

– Keep it between 250 and 600 words.


Courtesy Westland Books, each person whose entry is chosen for publishing on Women’s Web gets a copy of Chicken Soup For The Indian Mother’s Soul as well Bringing Up Vasu.
