Yesterday, the first day of Spring,
On this very special occasion Watani honours all mothers—and children—wishing them happiness all year round.
P.S: The above note was written by a grandmother. All the younger mothers at Watani strongly protested against “honouring mothers—and children” on an occasion that primarily honours mothers. But the grandmother, who happens to be the managing editor of Watani International stood her ground.
The reader is free to take whichever stand.
