Sobana Rachael says her mother Mohanarani (Rose) has been a constant pillar of support in her life, helping her through some very difficult times in her life.
"Hi! my name is Rachael, I wanted to join this competition to tell everyone in the world that my mum is a very wonderful person.
"The commitment, love, care, concern and responsibilities she took on to raise my brother Alvis and I make her the most valuable person on Earth..
"I love my mum very much and I want her to be proud of her children, so I will do all my best to get selected to win this competition as the best mother’s day surprise.
"First, let me tell you the best things that she has done for me in my life until now. I can’t tell you every single thing because if I have to write all the memories down, that would be countless things.
"There is a Tamil saying that goes, when people are alive we don’t know their value and don’t care about them much, but once they are no more we remember their value and commitment they have done for us and regret.
"I don’t wish to be such a person, I will value and love my mum always and this is a surprise for her.
