Renowned sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik has made a beautiful sand art on the eve of Mother’s Day at the golden sea beach, Puri which is situated at the distance of 65 km from Capital of Odisha.
Mother’s Day is observed on the second Sunday in May. It is a day for many people to show their appreciation towards mothers and mother figures worldwide.
The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Today St Andrew’s Methodist Church now holds the International Mother’s Day Shrine.
Mother’s Day is an annual event but is held at different dates in the calendar, depending on the country. It will be celebrated on 8 May 2016.
