Speech on Mother
A very warm welcome to all the teachers and students present in the auditorium. I am here to deliver a speech on mother. We have many relationships with people around us that we cherish. But, the most important, loved, the pure and divine relationship is that of a mother and child. A mother’s selfless love, care, and affection make it the most significant and Godly relationship. I would like to quote Rudyard Kipling’s words here. He said, “God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers”. I truly believe these words of his. We say that God created mankind but our mothers created us. A mother not only gives us life but does our upbringing and also protects us. Thus, she is our Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh.
From the time when a mother conceives her child, she gets emotionally attached to the child. A child is only the flesh and blood of her. She undergoes immense pain while delivering a child. Yet, she can never see her child in pain or any problem.
She is the protective shield and safeguards her child in all situations. She spends sleepless nights while raising her child but never complains. Her feelings, emotions, love, care, and affection are completely incomparable and selfless.
Mother as Teacher
A mother is our first teacher. She teaches us to walk, to talk and to eat. She teaches us the basic manners and etiquettes. A mother feeds us, cares for our needs and makes us a good human being. She helps us in our studies and also encourages our talents. Her whole life revolves around her children.
She also inculcates qualities of love, care, understanding, helping others, honesty, empathy, etc. in us. She inclines us towards believing and having faith in God. We also learn religious things from her. A mother teaches us many moral lessons through story-telling or poetry. She is thus similar to Goddess Saraswati.
Mother as a Friend
Our mother is our first and best friend. She understands everything we say and also what we are not able to say. Her shoulder is always there in the times when we feel low. She laughs with us, plays with us, goes out with us and enjoys with us. A mother never judges us, no matter what wrong we do. She shares her life experiences with us which makes us strong. We can talk about everything to her. She always guides us through difficult times.
After having said about the mother, I would like to conclude by saying that words always fall short when you talk about the sacrifice and love of a mother. A mother is definitely next to God or rather above God as she is the one who teaches us to believe in God and have faith in Him. She is the most adorable and lovable person in this world. Her prayers and good wishes are always there with her children.
So, friends, we should always love and respect our mother and her thoughts. It is our duty to take care of our parents when they get old as they did in our childhood. I request you all to love and respect our parents unconditionally and selflessly and make this world a wonderful place to live. Today, I also take the opportunity to thank my mother and being grateful to her and God for having me in her life.
