The gift hampers will be addressed to the winning mothers.
The Secretary of LCSCF and the project chairperson for the event, Joyshree Paul, in a conversation with The News Core said, "We had earlier planned to celebrate the occasion by distributing relief aids in orphanages and old age homes, but in view of the adverse COVID-19 situation in the locality, we dropped the plan and decided to set up an online event to make the mothers feel special." She futher added, "People living outside Silchar, and away from their parents, can find an emotional attachment towards the entries."
On being asked about the debates on mothers' day that revolve around the fact if the mothers should be celebrated on a single day in the entire year, the Public Relations Officer of LCSCF, Nabangkur Das said, "Mothers are blessings to the society and they should be love and respected throughout the year; however, since a mother dedicates her entire life for the well-being of her child, she deserves a grand celebration, and therefore, we believe in celebrating Mother's Day".
