No matter how much one grows up, what remains constant in a desi person’s life is your desi mom's wisdom. In every Indian household world over, a mother’s love comes with loads of wisdom - mostly unsolicited, and most often, ignored.
An Instagram user, Pranav Sapra, has taken this love-hate relationship with a mother's gyaan a little further and created an entire Instagram account for his mother. The 'Mother With Sign' Instagram page shows his mother holding up placards with various pieces of advice and things desi moms say.
Pranav Sapra shared a post about his mum’s new page on Twitter -“My mom keeps telling me things, so I made her an Instagram account,” he wrote on Twitter with a link to the page.
As Sapra’s mother got down to work, it was a matter of time before her Instagram page was noticed, possibly because everything she is saying is so relatable. The page shows his mother holding placards with wholesome life lessons, arguments about eating your veggies, trolling about not waking up on time and more. The page is growing fast and has thousands of followers in just about a week.
His mom’s advice has been there always but after the ‘Dude With Sign’ took social media by storm, Sapra thought why not do the same for her. “I thought there’s advice I get all the time from my mom, but always ignore. Figured other kids do the same and then realize later that she only meant well. Put two and two together and you’ll have mothers who want nothing but everyone to be happy, healthy and peaceful. Amplify these messages and boom it’s motivation for all, and everyone is finally listening because it’s on Instagram,” Pranav Sapra told Indian Express.
Poonam Sapra, a homemaker by choice and artist by passion, holding a cardboard with handwritten messages has gone viral across social media sites, and people have loved not only the idea but found the advice way too relatable. She is also doing what every mom does best — recycling. Going ahead with her son’s idea she incorporated to use the cardboard from waste boxes. And also plans to move to something that will be more eco-friendly in the future.
