When I was growing up
Amma was my favorite
the dependable refuge

Always poised carrying
an angelic smile, she met
with wide-open arms

Ever ready to embrace
sending feelings of safety
imparting lavish confidence

Her gestures reinforced
a sense of belonging
and caring commitment

By formulating a rule of duty,
unifying the triad of aspiration,
inspiration and perspiration

To engross in the process
of activity, and cherish the
virtue of the work well-done

Comment Ever ready to embrace
sending feelings of safety
imparting lavish confidence- by offering such security to young minds moulds them into rounded adults.

Comment An Eternal Divine Mother of Love - Poem by Ramesh T A

The most beloved soul of my grand aunt has passed away
Friday night donating her eyes and body to medical college
For study purpose to medical students aspiring to achieve
great feat in medical line for serving human society ever!

Her love ever lives in my heart since I know her from my
Childhood on till this day and will live eternally in my
Heart that gives greatest respect only to loving souls in
Like her and I have known of love only from her and none!

A lovely, sincere, divine like soul where can I find or
See in this human world after Buddha, Jesus and Gandhi...?
This great mother is the personification or incarnation of
Divine love nowhere I have seen and nowhere can i see ever!

Great Mother, you have become now eternal divine mother of
Love who will live forever in the hearts of loving souls only!

Comment Ideal parenting tips!

In joint families of India, everybody is blessed to have an Amma (Grandma), but with modern times fragmenting the pillars of Indian culture and forcing families to disintegrate into nuclear model of urban life, very few are fortunate to relish the lovely relationships, the bonding force; and the caring.
