The Hush Post | 15:40 | Two-minute read
An emotional Facebook post by a Kerala man has left netizens teary-eyed. In the heartwarming post that has been shared in Malayalam, Gokul Shreedhar congratulated his mother for her second marriage.
Kollam based Gokul’s post when translated in English, says, “A woman who set aside her life for me. She has suffered a lot in what was a disastrous marriage. After getting beaten, when blood dripped from her forehead, I have often asked her why she bore it. I remember her telling me that she was willing to suffer for my sake as she was living for me. That day, when I left the house with her, I had decided about this moment. My mother, who set aside her entire youth for me, has a lot of dreams and heights to conquer. I have nothing more to say. I realized that this is something that does not need to be kept hidden. Mother, happy married life,”
Gokul had been living with the guilt because he felt that his mother was making sacrifice for him. Now that his mother is settled and happy, Gokul is satisfied and nothing could bring him greater joy.
Before sharing his feelings on his mother’s second marriage, Gokul was quite apprehensive because he felt that certain sections will not be able to accept his note with a positive attitude. However, he soon realized that he doesn’t need to “hide” it, and instead, issued a disclaimer for those viewing his post with regressive mentality.
“It was my mother’s marriage. I thought a lot about whether to write such a note. After all, this is a time when a lot of people still cannot accept a second marriage. Those with eyes of suspicion, pitty and hate please don’t glance here. Even if you look no one will melt here,” Gokul wrote in his post.
Gokul also shared a picture of his mother and her second husband.
Gokul’s post on Facebook garnered over 29,000 likes so far and has been shared over 3,000 times. “This society needs more Gokuls,” read a comment on the section while several others congratulated the couple as well.
