Mother’s Day is right around the corner and we’re sure you want her to feel appreciated. She’s your confidant, she knows your moods better than you, she’s your biggest cheerleader and agree or not, she has your best interest at heart, always! With all the roles she juggles, there’s no arguing the point that she needs a break and no one deserves it more than a her.
Below are our readers’ take on whisking their mum away to far flung places;
#1. Corp-comm professional Karishma Daas pours her heart out on the thought of taking a vacation with her mum. “Growing up with a single parent is not the perfect fairytale, but when it is a single mom like you, who needs a fairytale! You made me strong enough to go on the toughest adventures and journeys all by myself. Now it is time we take an adventure of our own and travel the world. I’d want to start with Morocco for its historic legacy, sweeping desserts and majestic mountains.”
#2. Pooja Kedia says she misses spending time with her mom. “Mom has always been there; I didn’t realise how much I would miss her when I got married and moved away from home. Even today, I live for her scrumptious ghar ka khaana, the scolding she delivers over chai time, and her concerns, ‘Khaana khaya?’ when I got home late after work. She’s the glue that binds my family together and I cannot think of a better reason to #WhiskHerAway! And since Greece has been a long-standing dream for her, that’s where we would go.”
#3. Every day is Mother’s Day for Upasna, yet there is something special about celebrating occasions. So this year,”I want to make it a super special day for my super mom. I know there is so much she does on a daily basis, juggling multiple roles and making it look easy, so I’d #WhiskHerAway to her favourite holiday destination – Singapore. It’s the perfect getaway for shopaholics and spa-aholics, so this way we both get to enjoy the time away from routine!”
#4. As a young mother, Priyam has begun to appreciate all the effort and work that goes into nurturing a family. “I wouldn’t be the person I am, without my mother. She’s been my rock, my source of comfort, my constant guide and a ruthless critic. I cannot think of a person who deserves a break more than her. I would #WhiskHerAway to Bali for some much needed rest and relaxation. I’ll take her shopping in the Ubud local art markets, treat her to a traditional Balinese massage and have fun at Bali Safari and Marine Park.”
#5. Amisha reveals her dream destination. “Mom, you put aside your opportunities and preferences to let me enjoy mine. It’s because of you that I could go places, for once, I want to do something to see you discover destinations! I would like to take my mom to Italy. With the promise of ‘dolce far niente’ as they call it, great food, and idyllic locales, Italy would be the perfect place to let her unwind and spoil her a little :)”
#6. Minaaz thinks it’s the perfect time to #WhiskHerAway with the busy schedules. “Because my mom is a supermom, juggling between house chores and office, I’d like to take some time off with her. I’d discover North East to witness the gorgeous stupas and since she’s a chai person, I’d take her to Darjeeling’s enormous tea estates. A holiday trip will be refreshing for both of us and we will be able to do loads of exciting things together.”
