Concept

Mother's Day is a celebration honouring the mother of the family, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. This day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year and is an occasion to show your affection, respect and care towards your mother.

In the spirit of celebrating Mother’s day, Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India is organizing a Contest inviting stories about mothers. The Contest shall commence from 8th May, 2016 for a month long duration, ending on 6th June, 2016.

The concept of this campaign is to promote the idea of children sharing anecdotes/ stories about their mother who has defied gender stereotypes, raised her voice against gender discrimination and championed the cause of gender equality and empowerment. This story should have left a long lasting impact and consequently led to a change in the mindset of her family and/or the community at large. The premise is based on the fact that relationship with mother is one of the closest and may be a strong influencer in shaping behaviours and attitudes of her children. A mother is also a source of inspiration and a role model for her children. When an anecdote/story is narrated about a mother, it can be used as a catalyst to bring about a positive change in societal mindset. This may further lead to a more gender sensitive society which recognizes the contributions of a mother, in particular and women, in general.

The objective of the contest is to engage with larger audience through sharing of stories about mothers, thereby encouraging inter-generational dialogue, sensitizing men and boys, being a role model for an empowered daughter. This also creates an opportunity for open conversations against gender discrimination, inequality and dis-empowerment, which in turn leads to a positive mindset change in the society.

Some of the suggested themes are gender equality and empowerment, gender discrimination, sexual harassment, domestic violence, social evils like dowry and early marriage and so on.

मेरी मॉ - एक शिक्षित व संस्कारित बेटी,बहू, मॉ, शिक्षिका व प्रबंधक !
माताजी हमें पढाई लिखाई में मार्गदर्शन करतीं, अति प्रात: जगकर हमे देशभक्ति के मधुर गीत गाती हुई जगातीं | आज भी वह समय याद कर मेरे कानों में मिश्री सी घुल जाती है ! विद्यालय जाने से पहले चूल्हे के पास बिठाकर हमें खाना खिलातीं साथ में राजा मोरध्वज, राजा हरिश्चन्द्र, गुरू गोविन्द सिंह, वीर हकीकत राय की कहानी सुनातीं, वीरता, बलिदान, सत्यनिष्ठा, सर्व समर्पण की कहानियों से हम रोमांचित हो उठते हैं मेरी मॉ यथा नाम तथा गुण -सत्यवती

She is the first image in my eyes, the first word in my ears, the first touch in my heart, the first word from my mouth and She is my always smile on my lips. She is not only given me a life to live but provided me a live in my life to live. She is my mother.
