Roles Of A Mother: Photo A Day - Mother

Day 12 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : Mother


From the day we are born, a mother plays so many different roles in our lives. For today's prompt, I've tried to portray some of these roles through this wooden mother-and-child elephant set that we've had for almost three decades...


A mother leads us when we are unsure...


Lets us explore when we are curious...


Nudges us forward when we are too scared...


And plays with us when we are joyful!



Besides these, she's also so many other things... a teacher, a nurse, a protector, a shoulder to cry on... and at times, she's our bestest cheerleader too!

I once wrote this poem here for my mom... linking to it from this post... hoping my new blog buddies will like it... "Mother... and No Mother!"

Wishing all you mothers out there a very Happy Mothers' Day! :)


This is my 12th post for 2013 May Photo A Day Challenge.

Thanks Shilpa. Had planned 3 days ago, to use these elephants for today's prompt, but still such a last minute post! :(
And you know, I was actually planning to give them away in Patna! I'm so glad now that Dad didn't let me!

Thanks Meena! I wanted to take them down in the lawn of our building, to give a grassy ground beneath them, you know...
Unfortunately, didn't get time to do that! :(
