Behind all of our stories is one woman who has braved it all for us. The one who brought us into this world, the one who raised us to who we are and the one who will always be the best person for us. Our mothers. Mothers are truly a gift to humanity. While we do spend time with our own moms, meet our friends’ moms, ever wondered about the famous moms? What we mean to say is, have you ever heard about mothers of famous personalities? Take a look at some awesome moms who gave birth to some really great people.

Jijabai – Mother of Chatrapati Shivaji
A woman of mettle, it is no wonder that Shivaji rose up to be such a courageous personality. Jijabai was always ready to fight for independence and was by all means active in the endevors of both her husband as well her son.

Rajni Tendulkar has always been a delight to watch. Behind the roaring success of a cricketing legend, was this beautiful woman.
Heeraben Modi – Mother of Narendra Modi
Away from the fame and glitz of her son’s life, Heeraben Modi has been silently doing her bit as a mother. Just a few pictures of her and Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioning her in his speeches is all we know of her. But we do know that she raised a great human being and a politician for our nation.
Teji Bachchan – Mother of Amitabh Bachchan
It would be unfair to bracket her as the talented Amitabh Bachchan’s mother. Teji Bachchan was a social activist and was also a close confidant of Ex Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
