Mother's Day, May 11, 2008..A celebration of LOVE !!
MOTHER'S DAY SPECIAL.. " Mother's Day, has no caste or creed. It has no date..it is an everyday 'Celebration' of prime affection and care. My home 'Vidya Niwas' is dedicated to my late mother, Vidya Saxena..without whom I would have never understood the full essence of warm hospitality..love and compassion ! My mother in law's name was also Vidya so although they were completely different people the house name was appropriate for representing the family.
There are small things I remember about my mother.. What stands out most in my mind is four of us..brothers and sisters, trying to find out her zodiac sign, as she did not know her birthday! When she would cook us our favourite dishes, we thought she was a 'Cancerian'. When she was at her vivacious best in a party..the center of attraction, we thought she was a 'Libran' with a 'Gemini' influence. We will never know and it does not matter, because she gave me a vision which cannot be defined by any 'Signs'of the Zodiac !! "
"It was a great exposure to love and deep caring came when I first became a part of my wife, Sangeeta's family . After coming from Nepal, in the 14 years in Dharamsala, 10 years we spent in a rented house before we built 'Vidya Niwas'. During this tough and testing period of my life, my Mother-In-Law was a great pillar of love, strength and hope. Today in Vidya Niwas, we share the same with all our 'Home Guests' and on every 'Mother's Day', I remember her in the red lilies which we both planted together !! "
