No influence is so powerful as that of the MOTHER….

It is difficult for me and I believe for many of you reading this article, to express our love for our Mother.
We almost everytime take her selfless and unconditional love for granted. We just seem to think that the love that our mother shows for us in her words and actions are just suppose to be that way.
Mom’s do not express their love for us because they are compelled to take care of us or be that way…..but their love for us is simply so natural and so pure.
Sometimes, it makes me think, how can Mom’s be the way they are…..what makes them so selfless towards their children. No matter how old her son/ daughter may be, he will always remain a child for her and a Mother will dedicate her whole self for her child.
The whole world celebrates Mother’s day once every year. We express our love for our Mother on that one day….if you ask me, everyday should be celebrated as Mother’s day.
In India, Mother’s day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year.
Here is a excerpt of a poetry, not only for Mom’s on Mother’s Day but for Mom’s who are there for us each day of our life.
If I have never said thank you for bringing me into the world I'd like to do that now. Thanks for always helping me to remember what is important in life... and today it is you! Mom..................You're the best! Thanks for all you do. Thank you for always being there, Mom. There's never been a minute I wasn't glad you were my Mom. If there was a day for everything you have given to me as a mother, it would be Mother's Day every day.

Some real inspiring quotes from famous people about A Mother,
“My mother's love for me was so great I have worked hard to justify it.” - Marc Chagall
“All I am I owe to my mother.” - George Washington, first U.S. president
"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life". - Abraham Lincoln
"She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn't take them along."- Margaret Culkin Banning
"God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers." - Jewish Proverb


That's my Mom.....can't say anything more..
When your mom tells you something……..deep down there in her heart, she believes that it is right for you…….so an advice, if you go by your mom’s instincts, you will never go wrong in life. Remember, Nobody can take a Mother’s place in your life!
That’s a little I have written about Mother’s love keeping my mom in perspective…..if you have any feedback or comments, do write to me at simplymearl@live.com or you can post your comments below.
Until my next article, take very good care of yourself and God Bless.

Batman - The Dark Knight (2008).......you can't miss watching this movie

Last 2 weeks were real busy and hence I did not find the time to blog. For those of you who visited my blog and did not find anything new.....I apologise and at the same time thank you for visiting my blog.

I had my cousins home last weekend and although initially I made many plans to take them out, all didn't work out well, because it was raining real hard in Mumbai.

I actualy didn't know what to do, so we ended up in a multiplex (Movie Theatre) and for the first time, I watched two movies on one single day back to back.

The movie which I watched and thouroughly enjoyed is Batman- The Dark Knight. A Super-Duper film and I recommend you go and watch this film.....you will enjoy it for sure.

This is one of the best Batman movies I have ever seen. The Joker who is the bad boy (the so called Villian) in the film has done a good job...Kudos to late Heath Ledger's who inacted the role of the Joker. It is sad that this was Heath Ledger's last performance.
That's Batwoman for you.....The woman power!!!





This movie actually blew me away. There are some fantastic dialogues in the film, here are a few I can recollect,

  1. The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming!
  2. If you're good at something, never do it for free.
  3. The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules. And tonight you're gonna break your one rule.
  4. I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can't savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.
  5. You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
  6. You see, nobody panics when things go according to plan. Even if the plan is horrifying. If I told people that a gangbanger was going to get shot, or a busload of soldiers was going to get blown up, nobody would panic. It's all part of the plan. But tell people that one tiny little mayor is going to die and everyone loses their minds! Sometimes, truth isn't good enough, sometimes people deserve more.
  7. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.
So if you haven't watched this film yet......you are missing on something...A fanstastic story telling by Nolan....and a complete thriller...
