Mother’s Day in India is observed unofficially throughout the country on the second Sunday of every May. It is a time to recognise the bond between mothers and children and the vast importance of “mothering” to the overall well being of Indian society.

At schools across India around this time, mothers of smaller children often come to school for the day. Kids recite short poems, sing, dance, or give speeches to tell the class something good about their Mum. Mums also join in and do something to entertain the children, like sing or dance, and bring tasty food items for all to share.
Children may also give Mum a homemade card or a small gift. And kids and mothers sometimes go out to a restaurant, mall, park, or other venues together.
Many bring Mum breakfast in bed, let her sleep in, and may do some household chores so their Mum doesn’t have to do any work on Mother’s Day.
