He is none other than my “FATHER”.
I would say that, God cannot be everywhere and so he made Fathers. “Daddy’s Girl” and “Mumma’s Boy”, though I could not split the fraction of love in equal halves to both. It’s been always a concern for all the Dads around the world regarding their child’s future. Right from my childhood he was concerned about my education and he was worried like all other dads do.
His dream was to make me an Engineer but, Mamma’s dream was to make me a Doctor. During that time I wasn’t mature enough to take decisions since I believed that dad’s decision would not go wrong I followed his path. On the other hand I cannot disappoint my mother and so I took the role of a home nurse in my house. When either of them feels ill I look after them and I take the equal amount of pain that they took. He used to get me up in the early morning before sun rises tricking that you are late by time just to be punctual in life in all aspects. While during late night studies he checks me every now and then whether I slept or not. When I cried he melted like a candle from inside but I never seen his tears.
Mom always reminds me not to cross dad’s decision. When mom falls ill he takes up the position to take care of us. The pain, the hardships and the struggle he does every day cannot be compared to anything. All dads have a significant role in each of their child.
When I do something great or achieve something in life he never expresses it in words. I know that, in his heart deep down inside there is a place for my recognition. He doesn’t want his child to be carried away with that attitude and settle for less. He makes a fun way of expressing his opinions and feedback on my accomplishments so that I do not get carried away and reminds me there are other things in this world you yet need to know. That’s the chemistry between us.
Even he knows this and I know this. But to regulate it and not to fall on emotional grounds the other side is always better. I dedicate this article to my Dad to let him know that I have no hatred only endless love for all he did to me till whatever I am today.
A good father is one of the most unsung, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society. Happy Father’s Day, papa!
