While society leaves no chance to underestimate women’s courage, it is quite inspiring how during the tough times, they stand against the storm to protect their whole family! One such woman is the mother of famous comedian Prashasti Singh.
Through her heart-touching standup act – Superhero Aur Sidekick, Prashasti Singh shared a heartwarming tale of how a mother is the ultimate symbol of strength and transformation.
While sharing her personal experience, she talked about how her own mother refused to bow down as life kept throwing curveballs at her. Focusing on the journey of falling in love with her mother’s courage, Prashasti Singh shared how she always wanted to be like her father.
She always believed that her mother was a ‘clumsy sidekick’ to her father, the ‘superhero’.
Like many of us, she never really got a chance to know the inner superhero within her mother, until her father passed away.
Recalling a specific moment, she mentioned how when her relatives expressed worry at the fact that they were now fatherless and Prashasti would have to get married to an IAS in order to sustain herself, it made Prashasti wonder as to what would happen to her mother thereafter.
But, hardly she knew her iron-willed mother wasn’t letting society dictate terms of how her family will lead life. Rather than listening to society’s unsolicited advice to get her daughter married, Prashasti’s mother told her to pack her bags and get to work. She proclaimed ‘Your mother is still alive’ to a daughter who didn’t even know her mother had a strong voice.
Recalling the powerful moment, Prashathi shared how her mother’s words revealed the immense courage and strength she had. And, her mother kept her word. Even after 8 years of Prashasti’s father passing away, she never had to compromise on her dream job or ‘marry an IAS’, as society had suggested she should do.
It is worth applauding how her mother made a difficult yet inspiring journey from never having to worry about matters of finance while her husband was still alive…… to handling and managing the family’s entire financial responsibilities.
How she transformed from a docile homemaker to an all-around single parent.
This powerful account of how a mother went from silent spectator to single decision-maker is a story of strength and empowerment. It is an ode to every mother for doing everything that it takes for their kids.
