Of all the blessed things god has bestowed on us, motherhood is probably the best gift that human beings are gifted with. There is nothing that could be an exchange for the value of motherhood. It is the highest and noblest feeling that women possess. Her sacrifices often go unattended and unaddressed—irrespective of the fact—if she sacrifices her life. It is even sour and bitter if the mother happens to be a Dalit woman; the discrimination is doubled and the marginalization is doubled—of being a woman and a Dalit. Thus, in the light of the above things, this paper aims at providing a critical study of the poem Mother to explore hurdles and difficulties a Dalit women encounter, especially from a Content Based Instruction (CBI) approach.
