Freedom in the air

Celebrities share memories of mother

Shah Alam Shazu

So the western import Mother's Day is on us again. Cynics are around aplenty, to debate the origins of a day designated to celebrate motherhood. The more sentimental ones cherish the day as an occasion to flood their mothers with flowers or little knick-knacks.
Our stars definitely belong to the latter category. Even if they aren't overly demonstrative, their mothers remain well-loved figures in their lives. Here's talking to some of them:

A mother's love is beyond expression. You can only compare a mother with a mother. My mother is very helpful and has a wonderful personality. Although Mother's Day is aimed at honouring and expressing love for one's mother, I love my mother every day of the year.
If there is such a thing as rebirth, I want to remain a part of my family and be my mother's daughter.
Finally, I wish all mothers good health on this Mother's Day, as their happiness gives me immense pleasure.

The idea of celebrating Mother's Day is a good one. My mother is always on my mind. I think of her at all my moments of despair.
I have many fond memories of my mother: be it in my school, college or university days. Nobody supported my decision to be a film actor but when “Hotath Brishti” became a blockbuster hit at home and abroad, my mom looked very happy. My mother wanted me to be a corporate. She, however, has no regrets about my becoming a film artiste. My mother is very pleased that I am flooded with the love of my fans.

Words fail me when I conjure up my fond memories of my mother. Once both of us were scheduled to visit my sister in London, but I could not go due to my shooting schedules. A few days later, I visited UK and we crisscrossed the country.
My mother was a schoolteacher. As she was a little hot-tempered, we were sometimes frightened of her. She always wanted us to be punctual but we used to keep playing and entered school much later after the bell rang for class. A month later, someone told her about our escapades, and we got a big scolding from her. Since then I have never lied to her.
