It was the time when China was invaded from the north…The army in China was commanded by General Yue Fei. Undoubtedly, the situation demanded of him to show up his real strength and valour for the country. However, in those crucial moments, Yue Fei was trapped in a dilemma. On one end, it was the question of the life of his elderly mother, who was severely ill. On the other hand, his country’s freedom was at stake…He simply sat with watery eyes, looking at his loving mother in the state of utter helplessness. The mother smiled. She asked Yue to take off his shirt…However, without questioning, he handed his shirt to her. Mu, Yue’s mother, took her sewing needle and tattooed in big and bold letters these four Chinese words on it…

She has gifted this world with the great philosophers of the time!

This relates to the Fourth Century B.C. There was a child named Mencius, who was born in real challenging situations. When he stepped on this earth, he lost the shelter of his father. His mother, Zhang…In those trying times, she could manage to arrange for a dwelling near a cemetery...To her astonishment, Zhang noticed that her little son started imitating the voices of processions. This indeed became a cause of worry for her. There was no other way to rescue her son than looking for another house…She thus decided to make a move for the third time, despite all difficulties in making arrangements for the money. This time, she was successful in getting a house, which was adjacent to a school. Soon Zhang observed her son being impacted positively by the surroundings. Mencius was seen imitating the scholars...Mencius grew to become one of the greatest philosophers of China…There exists a Chinese idiom reflecting her mother commendable role in the making of Mencius, which says...
