On the evening hours of May 13, 2012, an attempt of making the normal day-to-day mothers of Belgaum to become special record holders on the occasion of Mother’s Day. Jyoti Chindak, the president of the Shiv Ganga Roller Skating Club, decided that there should be at least one event where in the beautiful and friendly relation shared between the mothers and their daughters should be showcased. She braind churned and came to the conclusion that there can be nothing more heartwarming than the daughters applying mehndi (Color) on the palms of their mothers or vice versa. So, that was it and mother-daughter pair did support her immensely. The result was a massive gathering of mom-daughter duo who were applying mehndi on each other on the grounds of the skating rink.
The specialty of this attempt wads that only mother and daughter pairs participated in this attempt. This was the very first time that mother and daughters in such a huge number have participated in any such mehndi activity.
In total, the total celebration was accomplished as promised. Elegant, amazing and full of color. Jyoti Chindal not only made herself a record maker, but also provided a proud platform for all the mothers to emerge as one. Everyone was happy and satisfied as they had been a member of a great attempt. Even the onlookers were excited as they saw their small city towering towards getting famous.
Special stars were added with the arrival of India’s Woman shooting star, Tejaswini Sawant who arrived at the venue along with her mother and sister. In addition to that, Dr. Kiran Bedi, the former IPS officer, Sonia Narang (Dy. Commissioner of Police, South) and Shalini Rajneesh (Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms), also gave their heartfelt best wishes and gratitude for this event which carried a beautiful meaning with it.
The trip of ours ended with memories of creativity and added love for our own mothers. Hats off to Jyoti R. Chindak, for taking such a charming move to add beauty and magic to the occasion of Mother’s day.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers!!
