From being a secret keeper to a motivator, a mother plays various roles for her kids. A child is an inseparable part of a mother and she can go to any height and fight against all the odds to give anything that her kids desire. A mother is just a word but is a synonym of many emotions all combined in one. Her immense sacrifices and countless troubles in giving you the best of everything sometimes get unnoticed but a mother’s love for her kids will always be the same no matter what the situation is. Even if she is angry with her child, then also she will try to be a secret watcher and make sure that her kids are fit and fine. From making sure that her kids have everything they want to sacrificing her own needs to fulfil her kid's needs, a mother is a compilation of sacrifices and love. Her abundant love is always cherished by the kids as they feel most protected when they are around her.

Alongside it, he had written a long note that could be read as "Found this handwritten poem of mine pardon the handwriting though. I wrote this for Mom when I was 12 years old. It’s maybe my purest moment as a child where I felt loved and wanted to thank her for the love, she gave me. I miss her love, I’m vulnerable every morning without it. I didn’t have a choice but to accept that I wouldn’t have her Love anymore. On most days it feels unfair and it bothers me, it consumes me I feel lost and helpless. I’m just writing this as a son and nothing more. I wish I could hear her call me Beta one more time. I miss her all the Fucking time and it makes everything seem irrelevant more often than not. I broke 8 years back, now I wake up trying to fix myself every morning smile at life but honestly, that vacuum shall never cease to exist. I don’t know why I’m venting but I guess life takes a toll on us because we are human and I confess I am no hero, I am no different it takes a toll on me too... Miss you Mom hope you are happy wherever you are. Love You the most." (Suggested Read: Janhvi Kapoor's All-Red Look For Umang 2020 Reminds Us Of Her Late Mom Sridevi's Same Hue Saree Look)
On March 25, 2018, Arjun had taken to his Instagram and had shared a post sharing how much he misses her. His post could be read as “As I was shooting by a canal today in Patiala wishing I could send you a picture of how nice the location was Mom I realised I never quite got to walk the red carpet with you to show you one of my films but I’m certain in the last 6 years you have walked every step of the way with me thru these 9 films. Along with mine & Anshula s personal journeys...wish you were here Mom so much has transpired so much where I would have looked at you for answers and looked at you to draw strength...I don’t know if I’m doing a decent job at it but I’m taking one day at a time and making each moment count trying to be a truthful reflection of you and your teachings...can’t believe it’s been 6 years to the day but I have thought of you every breath I have taken please smile spread your warmth n positivity wherever you are cause god knows the world me and Anshula need it...love you forever and beyond...”
In an interview with Huffington Post, Arjun had talked about his sister, Anshula and how she had coped up with such a big loss. He had shared, "Anshula has stood by me like a rock. She has gone through far worse. and she’s younger than me. I still had 11 years with my father living in the house. I had my mother living with me for 25 but Anshula only got 20. Imagine a child who has been through a life where the father couldn’t be physically around after they turned five. And the mother who was there physically and then after 20 years, she wasn’t there. Imagine the psychological scarring of that child. And still, Anshula is more mature, very well-educated, honest and more sincere than me."
He had further shared, "When Mum passed away, my only thought was how will I take care of Anshula? I was prepared to take care of myself, how I would take care of Anshula? It’s like having a child when you’re least prepared. She is my child in that sense; she’s somebody who I am the most protective about. She completed her graduation in the US and passed with flying colours. This was during my film release. She came back to be with me when she could’ve gotten a great job abroad. Till today, she doesn’t accept that she did it for me." (Must Read: Priyanka Chopra Jonas Shares A Breathtaking Picture, Her Hubby, Nick Jonas's Comment Is Unmissable)
