Guest Post by: Trishana Kashyap
There is actually no need for fancy introduction to the word mom. We all understand the importance and implication of a mom in our lives. Every mom is an exemplary one in her own way. On the eve of Mother’s Day, let us remember those moms who are famous figures of history and their motherhood status have been no less than a lesson for others.
Princess Diana: She was touted to be the most beautiful woman of the world. Till today after two decades of her death, the world has not found any face and soul as beautiful as Princess Diana. She was popularly known as the Princess for the needy due to her lineage of social work and a compassionate behavior. No other royal figure has been involved in so much of charity work the way Princess Diana was. She worked for children’s hospital, raised awareness and alleviated landmines as those were the burning problems of 90’s. Her noble humanitarian work have made her famous worldwide and on the occasion of Mother’s Day, the world surely misses her. But her legacy of good work is followed by her children.
Angelina Jolie: You can be a star on screen but to be human you must have an attitude. Ms. Jolie carries that attitude really well. Her massive work on supporting refugees and education have made her famous worldwide. She won Oscar for her impressive work on Girl, Interrupted and her humanitarian work has also made her a recipient of the prestigious Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts. She has adopted children mainly from third world countries that are generally burning with conflicts, wars, and other internal issues. She has become an ideal mom of sorts. There are so many abandoned and orphan children in this world who need love and care. She is also the UN Goodwill Ambassador.
Indira Gandhi: Not only in India, Indira Gandhi is a known face all over the world for her notable work in designing Indian political history. The period when she headed the world’s largest democracy was the one that actually shaped India’s future in a huge way. Projects like Green Revolution, five year planning, eradication of poverty, and mass creation of jobs nailed her as one of the most remembered leaders of the world. She also looked after her children well who later on went on to become country’s most-celebrated prime ministers. Don’t we all see that same passion and leadership qualities in our moms? On this mother’s day, give her tribute with these mother’s day gift ideas.
J.K. Rowling: Does she require any introduction? The world famous creator of Harry Potter series is one of the richest persons of the world. Many people don’t know that she was dealing with divorce, raised her child in poverty and these are the stories before she gave birth to Harry Potter. She didn’t give up in utter poverty and someone liked that scribble work on a tissue paper and that small scribble became the world’s most celebrated figure. She now serves as the President of Gingerbread which is an organization working for single parents and their children. She proudly says that, “I am prouder of my years as single mom than any other part of my life”. Even after massive success, she is a mother first.
History would always feel proud to remember these wonderful moms.
