A Facebook post by a son celebrating his mother’s second marriage, and thanking her for her sacrifices, has touched a chord with thousands of people online. Gokul Sreedhar, an engineer from Kollam in Kerala, shared a Facebook post on Tuesday to wish his mother a happy married life.
“It was my mother’s wedding,” he wrote in Malayalam, sharing a picture of his mother. “I had contemplated a lot about writing such a post. Remarriage is still a taboo for many.”
In his now-viral post, he spoke about his mother’s abusive marriage to his father. Recalling one incident in particular, he wrote: “Once I saw her with blood dripping from her forehead after being assaulted. I asked her why she endured it. I remember what Amma told me then: that she was living for me and she was ready to endure more.”
Gokul then went on to speak about the time he and his mother left their house.
“When I left that house holding my mother’s hand, I decided that I would make her remarriage happen. My mother, who gave up her youth for me, has many dreams to achieve and heights to conquer. I have nothing more to say. I just didn’t want to keep this a secret,” he wrote, concluding his post with a simple yet poignant: “Happy married life, mother.”
Take a look at his post below:
