She protected her child from the rebukes and reprimands of the villagers. She knew it well that Krishna was well known as the “maakhan chor”. He loved homemade butter more than anything else. The moment he could smell it, he somehow managed to make his way to the pot of butter. Everyone in the village knew of his habit, but it was Yashoda who became his saviour, everytime he got caught. Even if the Gopis blamed him for causing troubles, Yashoda became his saviour. Though as soon as he stepped into the house, he knew his mother would punish him.


Kunti is the foster mother of the powerful and iconic warriors Pandavas. What is appreciable about being a mother to five non-biological sons is that she never discriminated against them, nor did she ever compare them to each other. She always taught them to share whatever things they had. She raised her children in a way that whatever situation life may throw at them they must never give up. She taught them to be prepared for the worst. They were trained by her in warfare, politics and life’s survival skills. They also shared a strong bond with one another. The warriors were raised by a loving yet a strict mother. Whatever decisions she made, they never bickered over it.

A perfect example of it was when Arjuna got married to Draupadi after winning a Swayamvar by hitting a fish in the eye. The brothers were overjoyed with Arjuna’s victory. The moment they brought Draupadi home to announce the good news to their mother, they were devastated. The reason being Kunti was cooking, and without seeing she told them to share whatever prize they have brought home. The brothers had to abide by his mother's instruction. However, she realised her mistake at a point of time, but it was too late till then. Her story teaches us never to make any decision in a jiffy without understanding the context.

Kaushalya even forgave her for loss of marital bliss and happiness, and other misfortunes that befell her. Kaushalya is a mother, a woman who kept forgiveness and humility above everything else. As a mother, there are many lessons that we can learn from her.
