We should treat our mother as GOD. Mother is the embodiment of love and Sacrifice.
Children’s duties re to fulfill the desires of their mothers.
Mothers only give, but do not take anything back in return.

take advice of their parents positively & do not look after & care for their
parents in their old age. In fact they send their old parents in “OLD AGE HOME”
