“A mother’s love cannot be valued. A mother of virtue teaches her children to lead a blissful life filled with love and prayer. A nation and also a community are always nourished by a mother.”

Dr Judi Pinto, former vice-principal of St Aloysius College, Mangaluru said that mothers are known for their patience. They love their children, bending all rules. Mothers should live a dignified life so as to become models to their children, she added.
