'Mother' In Different Languages

A famous Jewish proverb goes like "God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers." Mothers are the bearers of children and hence, they are considered next to God. Plus, they have been blessed with immense love and care that they shower upon their kids throughout their lives. They have been created to take the responsibility of caring for God's holy souls - infants and kids. Therefore, mothers are placed at the topmost position in terms of respect, admiration, affection, and appreciation. Though, undoubtedly, every single day is a day for mothers, but, one day that honors and pays a tribute to mothers is Mother's Day. On this delightful occasion, the entire world gathers together to observe the celebration of the most charming relation on earth that of a mother-child. No matter which part of the continent a child is in, what language does he/she follows at home, the first word that every child learns to speak is 'mother'. Let's take a look at how the word 'mother' is called out in different languages.
