The Ultima-mum

If you haven’t done your puja, or studied for your exams, this kind of mother might just threaten to abandon you. This mother is loving enough to sacrifice all her jewellery for the benefit of her young children, but she will ensure she drops a few earrings in front of you while she’s on the way to the goldsmith, so you can reflect on how sacrificial she’s been the next time you’re about to cuddle with your girlfriend.
