The Dignity of Labor and our Mothers

The month of May of each year starts with the observance of Labor Day and then just a week after the Mothers’ Day. This may just be a coincidence but certainly these are very closely and significantly interrelated.

                We all must give due respect to anyone who have to toil and sweat it out just to earn a living. Our mothers have done the same just so they can bring us up in the best way possible so that our future will be nice and easy. It is not all about money. It is about the values, character, dignity and honor for those people and for us too who tirelessly do the same.

                It is all about life with the hope that someday soon, all who labor must enjoy the fruits of their undertakings.
