My mother, Tatini Banerjee, passed away some years back. I remember her all the time, with fondness, thanks, regret (I was often a bad daughter!) and some heartache. She was a big influence on my life and on my writing.
On the occasion of Mother's Day, I wrote about her, and a surprising discovery I made after her death, here: http://www.bookreporter.com/blog/2017/05/05/chitra-banerjee-divakaruni-what-my-mother-said
I'd love to know what you think.
And please write a comment with anything you would like to share about your mothers. We honor them by remembering them.
Coming soon: a post on my other mother, my wonderful and kind mother-in-law, Sita Shastri Divakaruni.
