This is what every Indian daughter wants to tell her mother but never does!

Whether you agree or not, we've all grown up with a love-hate relationship with our moms. Most of the struggle was in trying to relate to each other, to bridge the generation gap between us. This was one of the major reasons why I ended up fighting with her, ignoring things she did for me and my siblings, even though we felt terrible about it later. It is only with time that I've realise her importance and feel like thanking/apologising to her for all the stupid things we've done.This realisation struck me recently and ever since, I've been revisiting all those moments when I was stubborn, unreasonable or, simply put, a jerk to her. As I walked down the memory lane, another realisation struck. And this time, it made me cry. I realised, there'll be a day when she won't be around to entertain my crap, love me or even hear me confess my feelings to her.

That's what motivated me to compile all the things my mommy deserves to hear before it's too late. Please bear with me.

"Yes, you were right!"

I know I get annoyed when you nag and scold me for almost everything that I do. But, you have to know, in most cases I'm wrong and you're right. It's only that sometimes the light in my brain flickers on too late.

"I'm proud of you"

You always tell others how proud you are of me, but seldom do I say this about you. Today, I will. I'm extremely proud of you and how you've brought us all up. It is now that I understand that juggling between work and family life isn't a piece of cake.

"Thanks for being my confidante"

I know so many women who gather at kitty parties or get-togethers to discuss their children's lives. Thanks for not doing that to me and keeping my secrets locked in your heart.

"Sorry for lying to about EVERYTHING! I was just scared..."

From impromptu study sessions (which were actually dates) to staying late at work and more, I've lied to you a LOT. Please forgive me...

"I forgive you"

As clichéd as it may sound, no one's perfect and I totally understand it. I forgive you for all the times you put me in a spot at weddings and other family get-togethers. After doing this myself, a couple of times, I know you didn't always do it deliberately.

"Sorry, I didn't say all this earlier"

You know how slow I am in understanding things. Also, it's impossible to summarise all that you've done for me in such a short note. I love you!
