This one’s for you, Mom.


I was almost 6 years old back then, in this picture. Sitting in her lap has always been my favorite thing. Still is.

Happy Birthday, Mama! Happy BirthdayΒ πŸ™‚

I often take the explanation, that people give sometimes, as stupid, on how sometimes they do not have the right words to explain something, it rather seems eerie and impossible to me. How is that possible that you can’t express it, you can’t explain and let it out?

I think I was wrong. There are plenty of things where I’m left speechless. Be it an argument or a mere expressing of feelings for someone. I often go hyper and high while doing that though, that is, when I make an effort =p But I always explain, always do give my reasons!

My love for mom, just like that, can not be expressed. Can not be written, penned and typed down. Can’t be acted out (no. the million kisses i give her still don’t count). Because it’s mom. God, these moms. You don’t get them, do you?

I often tell her occasionally and rather randomly, ‘Um, hey mom?’ ‘I like you so much..’ She smiles and gives away a light laugh, partially thinking that now Sarin wants a favor or wants to ask her about something, but other half, I know, she knows that she can’t doubt the seriousness of my statement.

Raising four of us is quite a job. Yet, she’s still doing it. The house is fully maintained , thanks to her obsession with cleanliness. Married to a man who’s 15 years older than her, it makes them the perfect two.

Without her, I think I’d die. One of the many reasons that I’d die is that I’d die of starvation and hunger. Yes, my Mom still shoves the food down my throat!Β πŸ˜€Β By now, I’m immune to all the lectures I get from my grandmother, remarks passed by some close relatives – Hey, I do have hands, but I just do not want to eat until mom shoves it down. Her hands have magic and a secret power!! Sounds cheesy? But I do believe in magic, don’t we all?

I wish and pray for you to live so long that they’d have to shoot you down. ( i am kidding, please).

Mama, I love you. We all love you. Forgive me, all of us, for all those things you think you deserve an apology on. Dur-e-shehwar, all that you’ve ever done has already been noted down and goes into the history of the best mothers.

Happy Birthday. God bless. You’re special, you do need a reminder for that! ❀


About Sarin

Hello there. Currently a student, finishing my O'levels, a lazy teenage Pakistani. People tend to pronounce my first name wrong which annoys me. Here's how you pronounce it :- Sir-een. I think the world is funny and awesome. I'm addicted to Ice-cream and chips and I can have Chinese at any place, any day of the year. I love people. Almost all sorts. & travelling. Rain drives me crazy (in a good sense). My friend's cat hates me and gives me evil death glares. I’m here to express myself, on a board I think is awesome, and exchange my experiences, and my thoughts on randomness, maybe? I’ll be blogging about all the random stuff and you'll have to bear it.I love talking and surprises, wrapping presents and giving them away. My existence is for a reason. I want to die happy. And till then live happy to achieve the latter. Adios.

    Happy Birthday to your Mother!
    Such a blessings they are, mothers.

  2. As a father of 3 girls I find every word you wrote a treasure, from a daughter to a parent. I’m sure mother would have a good few adoring words to say about her daughter too, though she doesn’t need to, her daughter knows. As a culture, yours, its wonderful to see so much love, emotion and expression. People in northern europe are simply not capable of all three. Maybe one, or two, but not 3… and…as a little last point, the 15 years difference is music to my ears..yes…my girls’ mother and I separated..(I am too much of a dreamer!) but the love of my life is 14 years younger..everyday I worry..and I make her sad with a comment about my worry ”you are too young for an old man like me!”..and she has to warn me to stop such your post, with that detail, was very good for me! Hope you had a happy Eid…!

    Gud to see in the 2nd para that u dnt seek logic behind feelings,for feelings(and love) transcend any logic…This is what makes us humans and not machines,we can ‘Feel’…If any act of ours makes our parents more comfortable,less at pain ,then we should do it……Maybe they won’t be in a position to appreciate what we have done for them,but it hardly matters coz we are not doing it for gaining their appreciation,but because we love them………let’s do whatever we can before time runs out,else after 30 years ,we’ll be pulling our hair,regretting what we could have done but didn’t do,regretting what we could have said but didn’t say…Happy birthday to ur mum πŸ™‚

  9. Tatsat says:

    A very happy birthday to her from my side too !
    A fitting tribute to a lady, who deserves it well, from a lady, who appreciates her well πŸ™‚ Even I can not imagine being without her- guess that is somewhat universal.

    Loved your post !

  10. Shoba Menon says:

  14. Ally says:

    Aww this is such a sweet post πŸ™‚ We all love our mothers and we need to remember to thank them for things more often

  15. aeraszaidi says:

    That was a really very nice read, Sarin. πŸ™‚ I have also penned down something on my mother. But like you’ve mentioned yourself in your later blogs that you have exams on the run, well so do I. So i’ll be blogging about my mother later. Meanwhile, do check out my single blog post so far. I just recently signed up. And i’ll be following your blogs from now on.
