She suggested the students to read the proposed writings along “Bandi” by Mumtaz Mufti and special editions of Urdu Digest; “MAA number”, while sharing her own views on the writings.
While commenting on children’s behavior towards mothers, she further said that; new generation wants their mothers as smart as made-up TV stars, as loving as shown in movies and as active as a progressive working woman but at the same time as submissive as mothers of the past. And eventually the character of mothers has become confused in itself.
The session lasted for two hours, during which many emotional words were thrown towards attendees of the P213 hall. All Participants were agreed that Mothers should be treated with love, affection and sincerity as they treat their children throughout the life.
