Mother is the sweetest name on earth, says Veena Bhatnagar.

The Assistant Minister Women, Children and Poverty alleviation Veena Bhatnagar made this statement while officiating at the Mother’s Day celebration at the Fiji Brahma Kumaris Rajyog Meditation Centre in Suva yesterday.

More than 50 women, men and children attended the event.

Ms Bhatnagar said a good mother “is patient and self-sacrificing, she sleeps not while her little one is awake and she is worried when he or she is ill.

“If you look at some of the great men who ever lived, you will find that they owe their greatness, primarily to the care and nurture of their mother, especially in their formative years.

“No other earthly love can be as warm and tender as the mother’s yet as human beings who are prone to error, that love grows cold and some mothers relinquish that duty and that obligation.”

She added that there was no blessing like that of the mother.

“The ideal mother is God’s substitute on earth,” Ms Bhatnagar said.
