Mere paas maa hai : Your mother is your only Startup supporter

When everybody would have left you alone while you keep ideating/iterating/pivoting/trying/winning/loosing your startup, only one person would stand for you : Your Mother πŸ™‚ You can proudly say ‘mere paas maa hai’ and keep your spirit high.


Though I don’t have too many data to substantiate this thought such as in Richard Branson’s autobiography, you would have come across his mother’s support and guidance from early stage, also hope you remember AR Rehman’s said ‘Mere paas maa hai’ during Oscars for the Best Original Score “Slumdog Millionaire”. Ok who needs proof of a mother’s role πŸ™‚ This blog post thought came from a recent experience while talking to few Startup friends of mine. When we sat down for a coffee and started discussion, it was becoming clear that in each case their mother has been the pillar of strength. That inspired me to write this up.


Call me biased πŸ™‚ but I think mother’s role for your Startup is equally can’t be done by your father/brother/wife/sisters….etc. No, when days are hard and things are going wrong, a mother will listen to you without judging you, without making you feel to be blamed. That love, care of a mother which makes each of us unique will power you back and you will feel ‘I am ready again’. Lets be positive  to other family members, they may do care you too πŸ™‚ However as an Startup entrepreneur, your family members are your big investors so they are bound to be give you tough questions & time. Is that bad? not at all. Who doesn’t love a bit of care, affection and believe in your strength. A mother does that more than anybody, at times she is also your biggest critic and when everybody is gone, she will stand for you.


Love you mom.


Note : All family members are duly respected and their roles are hugely appreciated πŸ™‚
