Mangaluru, May 9, 2016: Every Mother has a special place in the heart of her children. She is special for a reason. She faces all hardships to protect them and give the best to them. While every day is special with a mother in ones life, Mother’s day is one such day, when we pull out all stops to show her what she means to us.
Moms of Mangalore, an online social group of close to 14 thousand mothers of the region took this opportunity to do their little bit on this day to commemorate this special person in everyone’s life. MOM along with all the well-wishing sponsors came together to host a special evening at City center mall, Mangalore. The enthusiastic crowd participated in various activities such as free nail art, Mehendi art and professional Photo shoot and Photo booth, which were all free of cost to the mothers by the sponsors. The event was hosted by RJ Anurag. The highlight of this event was the Babyoye Super Mommy 2016 contest.
Initially, a judging round of online photos was held. There were more than 85 participants and the final 20 participants were screened and shortlisted. 10 on the number of votes that each contestant received and the remaining 10 by a committee of judges. The shortlisted mothers were then invited to walk the ramp with their little ones wearing color co-ordinated outfits in the first round of the show. From this group, 10 contestants were further shortlisted for the Q&A round where a question on motherhood was posed to each of them and based on the answers the final 5 were selected and given a fun game to play. Namratha Lobo emerged the winner of the Babyoye Super Mommy 2016 title, while Sahana Jatanna was crowned first runners up and Joy Christin Johnson the second runner up. There was also a special prize for the Best Dressed Mommy which was taken by Jugnu Bhatt.
Dr. Vidyashree Kamath, a consultant obg and Laproscopic Surgeon and Mrs Mercy Dsouza from Mercy spa were the judges for the grand finale.

While a plethora of like minded people came together to make this possible, the main stars of the event and of the Group are the mothers of MOM, whose support and participation defined the success of the event. As MOM intends to get involved into more social responsibilities in the region, while supporting each other through the various services it renders through its online Page, mothers are encouraged to join this group and make use of the opportunities and also make a small effort to make a difference in the lives of other mothers .
