My Mom Was Right
Since ages, we have been hearing maa hamesha Sahi hoti hai (mom is always right). As a child I grew up hearing this sentence and always thought what crap. But as time passed by I only realised how right she was when she said things.
One patent dialogue by my mom is unforgettable “ Shadi hogi tab pata chalega.” (You will realise when you get married).
I always argued I have always got the best in life and sasural (in laws) is going to be no different. Thankfully, I have the best sasural but that dialogue is still in my mind. Yes, I realise now how a home maker feels. There were times my mom cooked food and we simply said we don’t want to eat because the cooked food was not our taste or we ate out and forgot to inform mom. (By we I mean my brother and me). Now I understand how it feels when my husband or any other family member does that.
Her second favourite dialogue was “Bache bade karna aassan nai.” ( Its not easy to bring up children).
This is like a fact I agree to 6778890% . Yes, motherhood is beautiful but it’s not easy. I realise now how bad my mom might have felt when I argued with her in situations where she was right or disrespected her. I realise it thinking how would I feel if my son would do this to me. Each day of bringing up a child is totally different and in itself a new experience.

The lesson learnt is no matter what you feel & whatever is your age ; never take your mother for granted & never ever ignore their favourite dialogues coz they come out to be true (LOL) .After all experience counts.
