The painting is a powerful expression of the artist’s reflection on the sorrow and pain that the country is going through from the perspective of a mother’s nurturing and enduring love for her child. Her tears reflect the suffering and loss that the country is experiencing due to unnecessary killings, violence, oppression, or injustice. The painting also conveys a sense of empathy and solidarity with the people who share the same fate as the mother.
The painting hopes to evoke a sense of patriotism, loyalty, and resilience among the viewers, as the mother’s tears can also signify her strength and determination to overcome the challenges and heal the wounds of the nation.
