Man, today, is undergoing several difficulties on account of ignoring the love of such a noble mother. If you strive to win the love of your mother, you can win the love of all other people. The love of your mother will always be with you, constantly guarding and guiding you in all your endeavours.

On the other hand, if you are moving about in bad company cultivating bad habits, resulting in bad behavior, they will be very sad and will be unable to share their distress or anguish with anybody. Hence, it is your foremost duty to keep your parents happy. If you want to keep your parents happy, you must tread the right path.

A generation that does not respect and foster its parents is bound to end in disaster.
