Happy Mother’s Day 2021 in Bangladesh is celebrated on the Mothering Day of each year. The day is celebrated on the second Sunday of the Shri Puja of the Hindu community in a dedicated and auspicious manner. On this day, every woman in the community, rich or poor, male or female, old or young, live together to celebrate their motherhood and Mother’s Day in a traditional manner. This day is the most colourful occasion as women decorate their homes with flowers, potted plants, colourful cloths and other decorative items.
The main highlight of the day is when the women hand over potted plants to their children, which have been bought for them on this special day. The children can also celebrate their own Mother’s Day by taking their mothers’ favourite plants home to plant. This special occasion is one where both the family members and children enjoy celebrating the importance of motherhood.
Happy Mother’s Day in Bangladesh is marked by different organisations. All the organisations supporting the cause of mothers will organise a large gathering. They are decorated with flowers, potted plants, and other gifts to celebrate the celebration. Some of these celebrations include a boat race in the sea, which helps to bring in the season of spring, while the annual breast cancer awareness festival draws crowds to the hospitals on this day as well.
The organisations involved in the cause of Motherhood raise money for the causes of the women who have lost their lives fighting for their rights. A special fund raising dinner is organised in honour of the woman who has lost her life fighting for the cause of women’s equal rights. The women who have lost their lives fighting for their rights are remembered on this day. The entire dinner is celebrated with special music, speeches, and fun filled events. Each year more women die fighting for the right of motherhood and on this day children join in the fun as they sing songs and clap and raise money in the name of their mother. Each year new stories are told about the achievements of these mothers who have given up everything to give birth to children.
For those who have adopted a new motherhood there are special events that are organised by the schools, churches, and many other community groups. This day is also observed as International Women’s day, where all the woman members of the family, friends, and acquaintances wear sari and other traditional Indian clothes to mourn the death of their mother.
