Talking about motherhood in modern age Kher said,The pace at which the world is changing,the concept of motherhood is also changing. I was brought up in a very simple time,and my mother always taught me to be truthful and never hurt anyone,but today the world has become very competitive and mothers must ensure ,more than ever before,that children do not lose sight of these essential values.
Kher also said that she had given up work for many years to ensure that she gave all the attention to her son when he was growing up.
The period of my life when I had given up work to bring up my son seemed very difficult and unrewarding then,but those years were some of my lifes most beautiful years, the actor fondly reminisced.
A book Ek Sangharsh Aisa Bhi,authored by Mayank Mishra,was also released during the function by Kher. The book documents the life of eight personalities,who have been instrumental in setting up educational institutions in the region. Several officials from Mohali and Chandigarh were also present.
