She unflinchingly changed your nappies day in and day out.
She fed you exotic delicacies, hoping you would study harder for your board exams.
She endured your tantrums, when no one else bothered to take notice.
That's the stuff mothers are made of.
Mothers are also the world's best teachers and the lessons we learn from them are priceless.
Her brand of common sense and wisdom -- whether it deals with practical matters like how to manage time judiciously, eat right or be smart about money -- can't be found between the covers of any book.
She also helps you imbibe values like the true meaning of friendship, the difference between right and wrong and how to respect women (if you are a guy).
