Being a mother.

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.                                                                                             -Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

 Imagine a job that has only one shift, 24x7. A job where you don't get weekly, monthly or yearly leave. A job where you can never, ever, retire. You don't get paid or get a feedback. And the worst thing is that you don't know whether you did the job right or not until 20 or 30 years. Sounds like a nightmare? Yet, almost one out of every two people you meet eventually take up this job. Confused? Welcome to the world of  mothers.
