Mothers Day is a beautiful festival which celebrates the joys of motherhood.On this day people pay tribute to their mothers and express their love and gratitude for them. The idea of the festival was given by poet and writer, Julia Ward Howe. However, it is due to the struggle of Anna Jarvis that Mother's Day came to be celebrated on second Sunday of May and was declared a holiday in US. The noble idea spread and Mothers Day is now celebrated in several countries across the globe. Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India (SCFI) wishes to generate awareness about wonderful thoughts behind Mothers Day and pay sincere tribute to all mothers.
As a socially responsible manifestation, Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India endeavors to create value for the Indian society by introducing the beauty, grace and wisdom embodied in the various festivals of India, thereby preserving India's rich cultural heritage. We bring unique customs, traditions and goodness of Indian festivals to form a distinct association known as the Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India. Through this organization, we hope to form a mutual respect for and foster the common bond that various Indian festivals share.
The great diversity of Indian religious beliefs is projected through the various festivals that are celebrated in India. They arise from the innate desire of man to seek diversion from humdrum activities that help in symbolizing, reflecting and enriching social life in a specific cultural setting. SCFI seeks to conserve and promote an awareness of this rich and diversified cultural treasure amongst the citizen of this country through various expositions that focus on the tradition of excellence, conversing the famous legends, rituals, mythology and philosophy of Indian Festivals and in turn facilitating an awareness of their deeper and subtler values.
In this dedicated website on Mothers Day, SCFI has tried to portray all facets associated with the festival. An effort has been made to go in-depth into the history of the festival and highlight the struggle of people who made Mothers Day a reality. Joys and sentiments of the festival are captured through Mothers Day songs, quotes, messages, poems, prayers, gifts, crafts, recipes and many other articles. SCFI invites its visitors to share their special relationship with their mothers by contributing message, songs and poems.
