Mother’s Day Celebrated at KIMS
Bhubaneswar, May 14: “Mother’s love and affection is the lifeline for every child. A mother sacrifices everything for her child, faces all the difficulties of life and in return shapes the child as one of the best human beings in the world,’’ said Dr Achyuta Samanta, Founder of KIIT, KISS & KIMS while speaking at the celebration of Women’s Day at Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), here, on Sunday.
Paying floral tributes near the “My Mother My Hero’’ statue at the KIMS campus, Dr Samanta spoke about the life and struggles of his beloved mother Nilimarani Samanta. He spoke about her contributions towards shaping the life and fate of all the siblings.
Dr Samanta regretted that he could not spare quality time with his mother while struggling hard to see KIIT and KISS stand as unique and world-class institutions of repute and distinction. He also urged all to be caring, loving, and mindful of their mothers. He also narrated how the non-descript Kalarabanka village could become the first Smart Village in Odisha due to his mother’s constant persuasion.
Dr Samanta expressed his happiness over the popularity of the book “My Mother My Hero” and said that people of over 100 nations in the world have got the opportunity to go through the book and students are getting inspired while going through the publication.
Announcing that Mother’s Day celebration at KIMS would be an annual affair on a big scale as a tribute to all the mothers of the world, Dr Samanta also requested all to love and respect the elderly as they have immense contributions towards our lives.
