The richest person on earth is the one who has the love, support and blessing of his or her mother, says Assistant Minister for Health, Veena Bhatnagar.

She was the chief guest yesterday at the Mother’s Day celebration at Bhrama Kumari Meditation Centre Fiji in Samabula.

“Mother’s Day is a day to reflect on the impact of a mother in one’s life. The essence of our mother’s existence will surely flood our heart and soul,” Ms Bhatnagar said.

As Fijians celebrated Mother’s Day with their friends and families, Ms Bhatnagar visited the centre to acknowledge the women and their capabilities through meditation.

“Mothers are regarded by many as the rock that families can rest on when the ground begins to shake, a firm foundation in society who can make a difference in maintaining stability in times of trial and challenges.

“Those of us who have our mothers with us, I urge that we shall respect our mothers, give them the recognition they deserve, and most of all, show them love that they need.”

She believes the best gift that mothers would want from their children is to live a life that would honour the principles, values, and attributes that mothers have taught their children.

“A mother’s touch can never be likened or compared with anything else.

“It is highly regarded and has potential to build the family in every storm,” Ms Bhatnagar said.
