Initially, they lived with His Parents in the Village. Soon, the wife got tired of village life, and persuaded her husband to move to the city, leaving his old parents in the Village. However, they kept visiting his parents off and on. But soon, as he became busier in his work, such visits became rarer and rarer.

The time passed with the son wanting more and more money and a better life for his family which, by now, included only his wife, not his parents. Simultaneously, the husband got a job with the US. Since he was urgently required to join, he could not visit his parents before the departure.

The son enters that house, and recognizes his mother on the bed but obviously in bad shape, almost listlessly sleeping. He tip-toed, as he would rather not wake her up. Suddenly, he hears his mother whispering, mumbling something while she lay half asleep. He gets closer to hear his Mother’s voice. This is what his Mother was mumbling, “God, I am now very Old, and Blind. My Husband just died. There is no one to cremate me when I Die. So please SEND MY SON to fulfill my last wish”.

This is the ending of a Story where the Prayer of a Mother has been accepted.

A human body can bear only 45 Del (units) of Pain. But at the Time of giving Birth, a Mother feels up to 57 Del (units) of Pain which is similar to 20 Bones getting fractured, all at the same time. This is just to tell you the extent, to which a Mother Loves Her Child and undergoes such extreme pains happily for the child.

That's why it is said: “God could not be everywhere, so he made mothers”.
