Readers ‘Club Conducted “A Tribute to Mothers” at UOG
May11,2012. “ Traditions, values and requirements are been modified with the passage of time. Mother ‘lap is replaced by day care centers and pampers have made it easy for mothers to get a relaxing sleep rather than sleeping on baby’s wet bed as our grand mothers were used to be. Now all these are just fantasies to live in a joint family with grandmothers’ night time stories and love of aunties. Yet love of mother is still required throughout the age, from childhood to being aged.” Said by Mr. Zahid Bilal ., Lecturer Media and Communication Studies , university of Gujrat while he was expressing his views on the mother’s day in the session “A Tribute to Mothers”.
