Mother is next to God - in fact a visible God. That’s why a Jewish saint said, “God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers". Yes, it is true. It is the mother who takes care to fulfill every need of her child while rearing from birth to make her child great and energetic. Among the four venerable personalities, Mother, Father, Teacher and God, mother is revered firstly and fore mostly. To express her reverence for her mother, Ann Taylor writes as follows.

If you ran to help me when I fell?
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
My mother.

She creates permanent impression by teaching the child from birth itself. The teaching of the mother is divine teaching. There are many such mothers who have made their children like heroes by their sheer love for their children.

Thomas Alva Edison, the great scientist and inventor of electric light did not get proper education through any school. It was his mother who taught him, guided him and inspired him the interest in science. We know about Sivaji. He became great because his mother taught him patriotism basically. The impression of mother’s teaching is so strong so as to say that the wise mother who rocks the cradle makes her child great who can rule the world. Only those children, after they grow into adults, adore their mothers as God.

It is the mother who sees the first smile on the lips of the child and makes it a permanent one with her teaching.
