Have you ever thought of any person as your ideal image? Well, I have! The person I idolize is neither a big celebrity nor the figure of national importance. The person is a common like us, but holds special significance and has the deep attachment with me. That person is female in her late 40’s and about 5′ 6″ tall. She is medially built weighing around 140 pounds. She has the thick black hair with tan complexion. She typically wears traditional “sari” and blouse. She is no other than my mother.
I admire her for her intellectual ability, leadership, friendly behavior, loving nature kindness, remarkable cooking ability. She has always been an inspiring example in my life. My mother is my best friend ever. I grew up in a small village of remote Nepal; there were no kids of my age in the village with whom I could play. In that case my mother used to play with me. She used to give up her work whenever I asked her to lay with me. She used to buy the play things whenever I request her. I used to share all my feelings with her, and there was no any secret that she did not know about me.
So we were good friends. In addition, she was always a caring and loving mother to me. Whenever I had to stay long in the night to prepare for the exam, she would wake up to make a coffee for me in the midnight. And she comes to check up my room everyday when I sleep to ensure that I sleep well. It is the love of her towards me that she took me to hospital at the middle of night carrying me on her back when I got slight fever. Any time I have conflict with my father she always takes my side and support me. The other for being my mother my ideal image is her intellectual ability and wisdom.
She has the huge knowledge about the culture and traditions. She is a good problem solver. I like the way she finds a genuine solution to the problem. She does not have much educational background, but in my personal account she is far more knowledgeable than a person with higher degrees. There is a one famous quotes in Nepali “You learn either by reading or either by experience. ” Experience is what she really learned from. She lived difficult live. As my father was away for the job, she was the one who took whole responsibility of handling the family.
Whenever we had any problem she used to find some unique solutions to it. For example, there was a mass epidemic of cholera in our village and my elder sister was also affected by it. Many people were dying in the village; they solely depended on traditional witch witchdoctors called “dhamis” in the village for treatments. Except everyone my mother knew nothing was going to happen from his blessing and treatments, so she took my sister to the district regional hospital and she got rid of the disease. Furthermore, I regard my mother as the best cook.
I simply enjoy the food she cooks. I had never got a chance to say that this food was not tasty, this had too much salt, and this was not cooked well. She was always perfect in cooking. When we later migrated to the city, she even hosted a weekly cookery show in the television. Later, she came up with the recipe book of her own and published, which is still popular in the market. In addition, she won the nationwide home based cooking competition in Nepal. Now, she has learned to cook intercontinental dishes.
Recently she has come up with the plan to open a restaurant in the town based on her unique recipes. The other reason I glorify my mother is because of her kindness nature. She is kind to all type of people. Her beliefs are extraordinary, she does not think of herself. For example, when she cooks food and we come together to eat, she keeps on serving us but she does not eat, she eats after everyone in the family. She does not care whether she gets enough for her part or not, she thinks of other first. This does not apply in case of food only but in all other cases.
During the festivals she would buy us new dresses but she would be satisfied with her old dresses. This shows the she just does not think of herself at first. Her kindness can also be explained on the basis of her participation on the donation to the poor people. She donates clothes, money and whatever else she could offer. Recently she was a part of organization that raised funds for the earthquake victims in Haiti. She believes the ideology of Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama, who says “This is my simple religion.
There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. ” In my personal account a person who you glorify must be an example to you, inspire you to do the best and more importantly, you know them personally. For me, my mother is an example, an inspiring person, person I know by heart and person with immense intellectual ability, friendliness, loving nature and kindness. I think myself to be one of the luckiest person to have been blessed with such a good mother.
