1 year ago Two people have had a big influence on my life, what I am, & what I do today.
One is Tagore. The other, more importantly, is my Ma who introduced me to him.
She would read out his work to me while putting me to sleep, and that's where it all began.
Today, I owe my taste in literature, music & culture, everything that inspires me, to all that Ma introduced me to while growing up.
And what's a filmmaker without endless inspiration?
I remember spending afternoons with Ma where I would read out from Tagore and others, dramatising the moments & making sure she was gripped throughout.
And she spent all these afternoons cheering me on and encouraging me to read more, write more & do more.
For as long as I remember, Ma has always been the cool one in the house.
From playing a drug dealer in a club play & pulling it off, to recently finishing her training in Rabindra Sangeet, she keeps surprising me with how she is always up for a challenge. Always looking to try something new.
And that's the spirit, enthusiasm and motivation I try to emulate. In my work. In life in general.
#DearMa you've been the most inspiring person in my life. More than Tagore. There's no one quite like you! - @bangdusen, Filmmaker & Musician
1 year ago Ma has always been the best at showing me the right direction.
When we first moved from Kashmir to Delhi, she took up the charge to help us all feel at home, in what was then an alien place. With new school & new friends to make! Quite a scary thought for a kid.
And amidst all this, she made me take up Hindi. How I protested! While all my new friends were taking up fancy foreign languages, she wanted me to take up Hindi. So boring, I thought, and so uncool.
That was then. Today, when I am presenting at an event or talking about cricket on national television, I can switch seamlessly between English and Hindi and reach out to so many more people.
And when people get pleasantly surprised at how well I speak the language, I find myself sending a silent thank you to Ma.
Language aside, even what I do today, a profession that was not considered mainstream when I started out, I can attribute to my mother.
Because she told me that I could either keep doing what others are doing or could do something different! That I could do things simply because I felt it made sense to me and I wanted to! That's something that has always stayed with me.
Each time I start something new, if there's one person who can make all the jittery butterflies disappear, it's you #DearMa! You're my life coach, confidante, friend, philosopher and guide all rolled into one. - @jatin_sapru, Sports Presenter
1 year ago Amma was a working mom.
In her time, that was even more difficult than it is now.
Balancing us, balancing her job, it was never easy.
And constantly making the most of every second, meant there were things she had to keep simple.
Like celebrations. We were never big on it. But we were big on having a great time.
Or food. There were never elaborate meals. But they were delicious.
When I grew up, it was not always easy understanding the choices she made.
But now, I know.
As a working mother, I know what it feels like to juggle things.
And I also know I inherited my love for simple things. Like the food I cook, the kitchen garden I have. Or the fact that my favourite dishes are the most homely, Mixed Vegetable Rice and Tomato Dal.
#DearMa, thanks for showing me that it's possible for us to make choices and to keep it simple. I juggle, because you taught me how to.

1 year ago I remember when Archana's Kitchen was still in the making.
I was expecting my first child & decided to use all the free time to experiment in the kitchen.
Of course, that came with a million calls to my mother.
Some frantic, some happy, some just out of hunger, looking for quick fixes.
True to form, she would sit and deconstruct the entire recipe for me.
Even to vague questions like, "that dish you used to make for me when I was 10 years old." And each time it would seem oh-so-simple till I reached the tasting part.
Most of them would turn out to be quite alright to be fair, but there always seemed to be something missing.
I think that's where a mother's intuition comes to play.
An intuition that can't quite be measured in cups. And it's not just with cooking, is it? It shows each time.
They just know when something is wrong, even if you're putting up a wide grin.
It shows when they somehow know what to tell us and when to tell us.
It's like their full-time job is to look out for you.
And somewhere, they pass it down to you.
Or at least that's the hope.
#DearMa, I hope my kid spots that magical intuition in me too! - Archana Doshi, Founder, @archanaskitchen#DearMaStories#AxisBank#MomsBeBest#MomMagic#MomKnowsBest#Mothers#WhatMomsDo#MothersBeLike#MothersLove
1 year ago "My mother was the best magician ever.
As a 6 year old kid, I was convinced she had super powers. When I was sick, she knew it before anyone. She also knew only light chicken stew could make things better.
As I grew older, my mother's magic powers only grew stronger.
She knew in an instant when my brother and I had fought. She knew I liked jam on bread and not toast. She even knew I was in trouble in school, the term I did really badly in math.
As I grew older, I knew it was more than magic.
It was ma being ma. Putting us first, remembering all the things we love, making sure we never lacked anything.
When I first thought of leaving my job and launching my food blogging career, I called her.
I was trying very hard to keep my nervousness out of my voice. But ma knew.
She just said, go ahead, and do what you love.That’s what I brought you up to do. And of course, if it doesn't work out, chicken stew is always there.
And just like that, the nervousness, the jitters, they were all gone.
All I can say is #DearMa, even today, you are the best magician I've ever known." - Kalyan Karmakar @thefinelychopped, Author & Food Blogger #DearMaStories#AxisBank#MomsBeBest#MomMagic#MomKnowsBest#Mothers#WhatMomsDo
