Mom You Are The Best


"A slight frown on your face makes me worry,
A stern look from you makes me hurry.

You read my mind, you are magical,
Every thought of yours is vibrant and radical.

I believe Angels exist, you are an example,
Your mountain of care and love is the perfect sample.

You know me more than I myself do,
How much I love you, you have no clue.

You are my strength you are my hero,
Without your blessings, I am a big zero.

Admiration in your eyes makes me sway,
I Love you Mum, You make my day!"
- Bushra
Today, whatever I am, I owe it to my Mom's sacrifices, her encouragement and her unconditional love. Every time I find my world turning upside down, I hug my Mom tight and my worries melt away. She is a homemaker, a person who put her family's wishes before her own. Being born in a village which could provide her with education only till class 8th, my Mom made ends meet to educate me and my other three siblings. She wanted her children to live every dream that she could never live when she was our age.

Some of the hardships she faced along with my Dad to give us the best futures are shocking and makes us teary when narrated. She molded me into a perfect cook, a passionate blogger, a down to earth person full of faith and perseverance and altogether, a wonderful human being.

She forgave my mistakes and blunders like no one ever could.
She was my first teacher.. My first mentor.
She protected me from the world.
She believed in me like none other.
She loves me and I know she will always, no matter what!

Today, whatever I am, I owe it to her confidence, her encouragement and her unconditional love. Everytime I find my world turning upside down, I hug my Mom tight and my worries melt away.

She is my world, a person without whose constant support and love I would have not been what I am. She is my Super Hero, my reason to smile even on a miserable day.. My Mom is no doubt #MadeOfGreat! 

If you have read this post you will know that our family has a Football craze and a great liking towards the legend Lionel Messi.

  2. The story of a Legend in herself nicely told - that's how I will describe it in a short sentence. Very well written with the pic which enhances the simplicity yet greatness of the lady..Salutations and very happy for you to have got inspired and bringing out your best in life.

    My answer: Tata is a name which any and every person can rely on for its honesty, commitment and perseverance. Lionel Messi is a legend who has carved his name in history books with total dedication to the game, simple living and improvisation which is seen with each game he plays. The association of Tata Motors and Lionel Messi as their Brand Ambassador will definitely give an edge to the Tata group over its competitors solely because the brand Ambassador also holds the same reputation of not letting his fans down ever, like Tata Motors who have given the best to the world over the decades. Its an exemplary association par excellence.

    You can choose my answer as the best if you feel I described it all well.. :)

  3. Moms are truly #madeofgreat :)

    Tata Motors' association with Lionel Messi spells a significantly notable alliance that will steer the company towards favourable benefits. I always acknowledge Tata Motors as a distinctive name in Auto industry, which will not let the success 'larger-than life' elude from its fate now with a timeless guild with iconic figure Messi. I don't see this union of Tata Motors as an aspirational effort for garnering some quick publicity and evoke specific reaction from myriad crowd with Celeb branding, but is rightly an embellished handshake for keeping up the pace to get to the pinnacle of success graph. To sum things up, I am joyous to see the brand and the star uniting for 'One in a Million' #madeofgreat power-packed drive ahead :)

  4. A very heart warming post, Bushra. Yes, our parents are undeniably #MadeOfGreat!

    Lionel Messi continues to be a World Player, his achievements matched by hardly a few players. So Tata Motors has done an impressive job (cunning too) in roping in Messi as its ambassador. In doing so, its image as an automaker would greatly be overhauled and brought to the global scene like a Boss! "Yea, we too make cars!". Image revamping done in an excellent way. With this, Tata Motors will gain an International Status!

  5. Moms are like that, always. As I'm a mother now, I can more understand how great my mom is! She was there for me always in my growing years and still she caters to every need. A really heart-warming post, dear... :-)

    As for Tata Motors’ association with Lionel Messi, I think Messi is the ‘messiah’ of the game of football. His dribbling, his passes, his determination to reach the “goal” is just incredible! He is the right person to be the global brand ambassador of Tata Motors, a company which single-handedly has changed the definition of car industry in India. The collaboration is great because both Messi and TM, are class apart in their respective fields. And, as we all know, form is temporary, but class is permanent… :-)

  6. Indeed a nicely written post. I wish you good luck for the contest
    Here is my answer
    The association of Tata Motors with Lionel Messi is that of two greats. Lionel Messi has been exceptionally talented who with his hard work, determination and sacrifices has got better and tougher in his chosen sport so is the Image, reputation and quality of TATA Motors that have transformed brilliant ideas into masterpieces of engineering and created a brand and products that we are so proud of as Indians. Lionel Messi has transformed his body and the mind body co-ordination into a masterpiece of precision and excellence it would not be wrong to say that Lionel Messi is the TATA Motors of sports where as TATA Motors is the Lionel Messi of vehicles both giants in their own spheres driven by the drive to excel and lead by example. So Lionel Messi is the best choice for becoming the brand Ambassador for TATA Motors

    Regarding the answer to your question, please find it below:

    Tata motors is driven by excellence and innovation and consistency has been in its veins. The same also holds with Lionel Messi. With consistency and vigor brought in by Lionel Messi and the toughness, the elegance and innovation by Tata Motors, I believe this is a wonderful combination of two brands coming together and will definitely flourish.

  11. That poem pulled at my heart. Beautiful write up Bushra :) A hero is someone one can look up to, someone whom one can model himself after. I am glad that like me, that hero for you is your Mom.

    Everything from the choice of picture, which speaks volumes of simplicity and greatness, to the sweet poem is lovely about this post.

    We are lucky to have been blessed with mothers who are the only forms of angel we have got acquainted to. The hardships and sacrifices our mothers have taken to mold us into what we are today are limitless. Their unconditional love and support is what keeps us going even in the hardest of times. :)

    Your Mom's a Football fan? Wow! :D Lionel Messi is my fav sportsman too. Looks like I have GOT to meet aunty now!

    TATA Motors, a legend in itself collaborating with the amazing Lionel Messi sure sounds thrilling to me. I too can't wait for the awesomeness which will follow!

  12. Moms are just like this! So well said :) I hope you like my thoughts too!


    These are not mere words but a part of our soul. Not just the ones that we carry around in our individual bodies but that supreme soul that binds us all together in this universe. That is why we teach our children values and morals so that these little pockets of our souls do not die away. But when we look around at our modern day lifestyle and society,it leaves a lot to be desired, right? Wrong :) I would say,as long as we have even 1 shred of humanity left,there is a ray of sunshine and that is what we see here.

    I am inspired by your story just as I am inspired by the stories of Tata Motors and Lionel Messi. As I said above about humanity and ray of sunshine, it is very few icons left in this world who make me feel that way. Both Tata and Messi definitely make it to this short list.

    When we talk about Tata Motors,we talk about the pride that every Indian feels because this is our truly global brand, a brand with a soul, with every product made to help us fly. This is a corporate behemoth that has not amassed its fortunes at the cost of the little man but by being a part of the very grassroots. The legacy of excellence and giving back to the society selflessly is so ingrained in Tata DNA that it has become part of folklore. Even today,in any Indian home, the moment a son/daughter gains employment in a Tata company, nobody talks about salary or CTC, they just thank their lucky stars that they are a part of Tata family. The very soul of India resides in Tata. Tata Motors has taken these very same values global, making Indians proud of what they represent. 'Look,we represent excellence, with a dollop of old world values, with love and respect' !

    When we look at Messi, we see a boy with dreams in his eyes and a man who has put everything he had in making them come true, and he did! With singleminded focus,dedication and hardwork, he has managed to outdo every obstacle he faced since his birth personally, healthwise and family financial situation wise. Every obstacle became just another step for him to grow and reach up the sky. And still, every time he walks out on the field, he plays with the same agility, alarcity and a a hunger to prove himself as if it is his first game! He hasn't achieved his demi-God status without superhuman efforts.

    When these two demi-Gods of their respective fields come together, there are bound to be fireworks and that is exactly what it is! Purely from a corporate point of view, there are rare instances when we see such a perfect fit form. It can be called a divine sign that a symbol of vibrancy and dynamism like no other has taken shape with the partnership of Tata Motors and Lionel Messi. More than a mere advertising gambit,it is an amalgamation of those perhaps 'lost' values that the world needs more of,now more than ever. Maybe the Gods are finally happy!

  13. Oh,what would we do without moms :)

    When it comes to impact and impacting millions of lives, Yes, we can see both Tata Motors and Lionel Messi being the pioneers here. While the very name Tata is enough to make us go back to all our history books where we have seen there hardly is a comparable name that has contributed so much to the society in such an ethical manner, the very name Messi conjures up images of a boy-man who has turned the world upside down with his talent, determination, discipline and never-give-up spirit. The compatibility between the values they both share is intense and that is the reason this partnership works perfectly.

    With a concern for the society at large,everything that Tata has done has inspired us to dream big, conquer the world and pour all our energy back into the society to do good and inspire good. By facing his demons, Messi has done the same. He enjoys a God-like status in the world today because he dared to dream, achieved the sky and still hasn't lost his humanity a bit. He is still a child at heart and he gives back with his multiple philanthropic activities just like Tata does!

    Talk to any person in India, ask them about the companies they admire the most. Tata is right there at the top. This name is beyond bottomline, spreadsheets, return on investment and share price. It is equivalent to soul of India-soft, kind, diverse, dynamic, eternal. Just like that Messi has emerged as not just another football player but someone whose very life is an inspiration, whose personal struggles are a template for others to emulate and who has morphed into an eternal legend.

    While it would take eons to write about what makes Tata Motors and Messi great, as their list of achievements is too long for us to even skim over, suffice to say that this partnership is for the ages. As they say, some things are made in heaven :)

    Thank you for this opportunity.
