Aren't mothers important?

This petition had 17 supporters

This is not a story of a single mother or an abusive home situation. But I see that where children's studies or careers are concerned, it is only the father's name that counts for anything. Mother's names are not required for ANYTHING at-all, be it admission forms, exam admit cards, ADHAAR cards, PAN cards etc. On the other hand, mothers put in 99% of the hard work in bringing up their children. Mothers suffer the same agonies their children go through, exult with their children at their successes equally with the dad's. Mothers make the difference between responsible adult individuals or possible anti-social adults. Is this right? Only when "Official" India gives mothers the status they deserve, will the status of women in India change.

If you agree, lets change the situation. Lets give mothers the respect they deserve!

Mother's names should be made mandatory along with father's name for all official documentation pertaining to their children.
