We will love to look into the present-day TV mothers who have been really popular and iconic in their own ways.

However, we have included one mother from the yesteryear list just because we believe she will remain the most evergreen mother of Indian Television!!

So here we go!!

Tulsi Virani, played by Smriti Irani in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi: We know Tulsi as a symbol of love, courage, resilience and emotions. She was a mother who loved not only her kids but also her entire younger generation kids. She was also the mother who killed her own son, Ansh and empowered the woman who was raped by her own son!! She had the guts and courage to go through of the sorrow attached to it!!

Pragya, played by Sriti Jha in Kumkum Bhagya: Pragya has been a devoted wife and mother throughout her life. She loved her angel Kiara and her world came crashing down when she lost her little daughter. She blamed her husband Abhi for being careless of not being able to save their daughter. Now, she is the loving mother to Prachi and has brought up her daughter around all the principles she has followed as a woman!! To raise her child single-handedly without being supported by her husband, Pragya is outstanding as a mother!!

Naira, played by Shivangi Joshi in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai: Naira has been a mother who has fought her son all through her life!! She left her husband when she was an expecting mother. However, she withstood the sorrow of being alone and brought her kid to life. She lived all alone with Kairav, and destiny paved way for her reunion with husband Kartik. Now Kairav has got his father too. The story ahead will see the dramatic twist of Naira getting to know of her first child being alive. She is a mother with all the courage!!

Daya Ben, played by Disha Wakani in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: Daya has been a dutiful mother, wife and daughter-in-law. Her equation with son Tapu is adorable and cute at the same time. She is a mother who talks and practices the right!! And though Tapu has been a mischievous child, he has taken the good qualities from his mother and has grown into a stronger individual.

Ishita, played by Divyanka Tripathi in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein: Ishita has again been a loving wife and a really good mother. She has seen a lot many ups and downs in her life and has never had a child of her own. However, she has showered all her love and affection for her two girls. A very symbol of pure and selfless love, Ishita is one mother to watch!!

Kalyani, played by Reem Shaikh in Tujhse Hai Raabta: Kalyani is just a teenager girl who was pushed into the responsibilities of being a wife and mother at a very early age. At an age when she had to be childish herself, she was nurturing Moksh aka Pillu. The bond that she shares with Moksh is very pure and affectionate. She is one mother who can do anything for her son.

Yamini, played by Sudha Chandran in Naagin: We have seen many mothers becoming iconic for their goodness. However, here is a mom who got really popular and noteworthy for being negative. Yes, we are talking about Yamini who was the wicked power in the show. We saw her take her family through all the downs, especially when it came to her own son’s love life. She was one mother who will always be remembered for being different!!

Television has seen many such iconic mothers, and the list is actually endless. We salute each one of them!!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!!
