From that time, this day adopted to other countries and now it is observed in all over the countries of the world.

Every day and every moment, children should show their respect, honour and love to their mothers. They always should try to comfort their mothers. The person who has sacrifices everything for her children, its not possible to fulfill her debt in this limited life. So we should respect and honour them.
