Motherhood at its best

I touched base with a friend after many many years. A friend who has spent her life with the poorest communities, with their struggles as hers ... close to three decades now. One of the finest human beings I have known.

She mentioned her daughter. A child they found in the railway coach. much hurt in many ways in her 14 years of life was brought home and is her daughter now. The challenges would be huge, but the sense of meaning also.

This is motherhood, where love and compassion flows from the mother's heart to where need is there.

The personalized motherhood towards 'my child' is a far feebler copy. where we give 'our own child' far more than another.
