Through the fights, long conversations, cups of chai, hugs and gossip—there’s something really special about a mother-daughter relationship. It’s the kind of relationship that compares to no other. While Mother’s Day might be celebrated on just one day of the year, I’m gonna go the cliche way and say that we should pay a little more attention to just how much our mothers do for us on an everyday basis. Whether you still live with your mum or are away, there is no denying that the bond mothers and daughters share don’t compare to any other.
It’s safe to say that she knows what you need even before you could say it. ‘Cause that god-gifted mother telepathy is so, so real. And that is what makes your relationship one of a kind. Whether you need her to find something for you, or tell you what meds to take, your mum is your go-to person for it all!
Have you ever noticed how you’re growing to be your mother? I’ve noticed it in my life and it’s been pretty damn weird and awesome all at once. The little things you say, behaviour patterns, and more all indicate just how similar you two are—and that in turn just brings you closer together.
While there might be a bunch of food, fashion and life experts present. The only and most important opinion is the one we hear from our mothers.
Somehow, mother’s just know when something is wrong. It’s the kind of thing you can’t explain but it’s just there and for it, we are so, so grateful. Cause TBH, what would we do without them?
Whether it’s getting ready for that fancy dress competition, or making sure you ace that job interview, no one has the ability to calm your nerves and cheer you on like your mom!
So this Mother’s Day Malini’s Girl Tribe decided to do something special for the mothers of the tribe! We organized a special evening for every mother-daughter duo at Caffe Ritazza, a classic Italian cafe that has a lil bit of a cosmopolitan vibe.
It was an evening filled with games, bonding and great food with the mothers and daughters of the tribe. We started off with a short and unique introduction of each other where the mother-daughter duo introduced each other instead of talking about themselves (how cute is that?). This was then followed by a quiz to put their Bollywood knowledge to test, with the daughters up against the mothers. It got more competitive and fun when the two teams had a tie! We then moved on to American housie, the winners of which won vouchers from Jean Claude Biguine
But, there was much more to this evening than just fun and games. We had some pretty interesting discussions too with the tribe sharing their opinions on various issues. One of the important topics of discussion was women empowerment and how important a role good parenting plays in moulding a child’s future. We talked about how parenting has evolved over the years and how different it was for women earlier. We observed how liberal we have become as parents over the years and discussed the pros and cons of it. We also talked about how we should teach sons to grow up to be better men by imbibing ‘positive masculinity’, because the values you adapt in your childhood always stick by you.
Safe to say that Malini’s Girl Tribe and their moms had the time of their lives! It was like our Facebook group came alive this evening at Caffe Ritazza and celebrated together like one big family.
