International Mother’s Day is being observed across the country as elsewhere in the world, with much affection.
The International Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year paying tributes and gratitude to mothers around the world.
It is a time to appreciate mothers and motherly figures, conveying gratitude for the hardships born in child-rearing.
The day was marked by high spirits and enthusiasm as various public and private organisations and schools arranged entertaining programmes for Mother’s Day celebrations.
Mother’s Day has been celebrated in Pakistan and the sub-continent at large for the past few years with tremendous zest. People send flowers and present Mother’s Day cakes, cards, mugs, sweets and other gifts to their mothers on this day.
