The world celebrated the Mother’s Day recently and social media networks were flooded with posts talking about the love and affection that mothers give to their kids and also about the sacrifices which are made by them in order to give their kids a good life. However, there is one thing which separate the desi moms from the foreign mothers and that is Maa Ki Maar (beating by mother).
In some western countries, beating a kid by parents is also a crime while in some Asian countries such as India, Pakistan, etc., parents consider it their right to beat their kid because they follow the saying, “Spare the rod, spoil the kid”. Nowadays, many experts talk about the negative effects of beating the children but the kids of 90s have a good experience of getting beaten by their mothers.
The mothers of 90s used not only their hands for beating their kids but many other items such as slippers, umbrella, cloth hangers, comb, kitchen stuffs, etc.
Recently a Twitter user shared the photos of items which were used by the mothers for beating kids and asked, “आपकी मम्मी का पसंदीदा हथियार कौन सा है? बचपन मे माँ की मार सबको पड़ी है.” (Which is your mother’s favourite weapon? Everyone must have got beaten by mother during childhood.)
आपकी मम्मी का पसंदीदा हथियार कौन सा है?

The kids of today must be unaware of Maa Ki Maar but if you have experienced it, do let us know what you feel about it now and which all weapons your mother used.
