As the world celebrated international women’s day, we tend to get so many heart touching stories and tributes from all around the world.
On this occasion, famed Pakistani actress Mahira Khan turning to Instagram has shared a photo of her mother, who is holding baby Mahira in her hands.
The Humsafar star has shared an emotional note, dedicating Women’s day to her mother as she says, “Today and every single day I want to be like her”. No doubt she strikes remarkable resemblance with her mother.
She writes, “Here is a picture of my Ama from the day that I was born. She has had rheumatoid arthritis for the last 30 years. She’s been in pain ever since. Despite that, she has worked as a teacher most of her life. Raised me and my brother, while running our home. She has trouble doing normal day to day things now – like walking, taking a bath or even making her own hair”
She continued her note, saying, “Now here’s the thing – she smiles through it all. She is always grateful. Always thanking God for little things. She keeps telling us ‘tender mercies’ is what one must be grateful for. She enjoys her tea and makhan toast like no other. And even though she can’t dance, she doesn’t miss a chance to groove to the music she loves”.
Mahira concluded her post by further adding that “Today and every single day I want to be like her. Happy women’s day to all you women, bravely going through life with a smile on your faces!”.
