After Birth Panda Cub Meets Its Mother For The First Time


Like Edwin H. Chapin said, “No language can express the power and beauty and heroism of a mother’s love”, I believe there is something special, and incredibly sacred, about the unique bond that exists between mother and child. A mother’s first act of courage is to give her baby life at the risk of her own. The moment a child is born another also takes birth. The women always existed but the mother in her is absolutely new. For women who have experienced it, the pain and joy of childbirth is something that can hardly be described in words.

In many cases, mothers overcome their emotions by weeping at the sight of their long-awaited offspring—but these are tears of joy. Above all, the happy mothers embracing their precious babies exude a sense of serenity–as if they finally feel complete and in perfect harmony with the universe. Here the baby panda was kept away from the mother for a month in an incubator, after the cub had hurt her leg. The emotion the panda is going through while seeing her baby for the first time cannot be explained in as many words, since it’s a feeling that can only be felt.

A mother understands what a child does not say, and this reunion is a perfect example of how the baby panda and the mother communicate their feeling and the immense love for each other without saying a single word, and it was emotional to say the least. Jill Churchill once said, “The most important thing she’d learned over the years was that there’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a great one”. The same holds true for the mother panda, who was eagerly waiting for her child after a month.

One of the lesser known facts about pandas is that they are quite similar to humans in a lot of ways. They are also extremely hesitant in sharing their most beloved things, and what could be dearer to a mom than her child? The zoo authorities have decided to re-unite the mother and the panda cub for good. What could be more touching than seeing a mother and child growing up together and building memories? Yes, Pandas too love to play and spend time lazing around and yes they love eating, which is kind of apparent, isn’t it? If you could relate with this, please share and spread the love.
