You owe a supreme duty towards your parents who are responsible for all that you are. You will be less than human if you do not show your gratitude to them for all that they have done for you. Parental love means for the children what the sun's rays mean for the blossoming of a flower. Wherever you may go, whatever you may achieve, whatever position you may occupy, you must always remember your mother with love and reverence. A person who fails to remember the mother and the motherland with affection is veritably a demon. There is nothing human in such a person. One should cherish one's mother and the land of one's birth with the deepest regard.
