Pink City Jaipur all set to celebrate Mother's Day on May 7
The gift shops in Jaipur have put up the gift items, posters and greeting cards for sale for the upcoming celebration of Mother's Day on May 7. Over the years, the celebration has become a commercial event promoted by greeting cards industry. The online market is also upbeat for this year's event.
Presenting a Mother's Day card with a bouquet has become a common way of celebrating Mother's Day in urban India. Many schools organize events a day before the Mother's Day through theme-based events dedicated to the mother and her roles.

Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May in many countries across the world to honour mothers, motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence and contribution of mothers in society. The celebration that originated in the west has got assimilated into Indian culture to thank the mother for her care and love.

The modern Mother's Day has been assimilated into Indian culture. However, it is celebrated primarily in urban centers.

However, with the commercialization of Mother's Day, it has become the day to buy, present or send gifts to mothers. Online shopping ventures promote Mother's Day gift ideas. Consequently, market forces have converted Mother's Day into a materialist gifting experience rather than an emotional one, it is being exceedingly felt.

According to Charles Stanley, motherhood is a great honor and privilege since mothers selflessly meet the needs of their families and continuously put others before themselves. In the similar vein, Meryl Streep says, "Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials."
