Phase A —- Entry Into the world
A dad is someone who hugged me to provide his warmth ,
Who had sleepless nights to make me sleep,
Who made himself silly & ridiculous to make me smile & laugh,
Who forgot his pains to give me lovely rides, Who let me play in the sand to make me strong ,
Who embraced me every day post returning from work & I shrieked with elation to be with Him 🙂
Phase B — Schooling to Adult
A dad became someone who never made me do any work,
Who never asked me to study hard when I was small ,
Who was the saviour to me from harsh studies ,
Who encouraged me to be naughty &indulge in Play ,Play & Play,
Who guided me to be “Master of All” & not just studies ,
Who never made me polish my shoes or even bring a glass of water,
Who ensured that his pampering was enough to make me puckish ;),
Who saved me from the brunt of my MOM, when sometimes I scored low & stood 2nd or 3rd in class ,
Who made me travel a lot from East to west & North to south,
Who made me aware of the goodness of the world, Who made me laugh a lot by being a kid himself ,
Who struggled himself to make all my wishes come true ,BUT
Who never made me aware of the word “Struggle”,
Who gave me a lavish adolescence with full freedom of thought, heart & mind.
Who cared & loved the most when I became sick !
Phase C —College to Marriage
My Dad is one , Who became my mentor for higher studies ,
His dream to see me big ,made me achieve Academic Success,
His separation for studies made me frantic, but made me learn to face the world,
He taught me rights & wrong’s, to stand firm on my decisions & beliefs ,
He who rejoiced in my every victory ,
He who made me smile in my Pain, crying within himself,
He who ran from pillar to post to make my marriage a grand affair,
He who understood my feelings to marry the Man of choice!!
Phase D –Post Marriage
Nothing has changed dear Dad post marriage,
He suddenly made me realize of my responsibilities,
He suddenly made me aware of the struggles & gave me the strength to kick them off,
He motivated me to fulfil my dreams,
He gave his everything, sweat, time, money, when I was carrying a little baby,
He gave all his love for the new born, He took ample holidays from work to be with me & kid,
He again got back into his old memory lanes & hugged me & my Kid!
Such is the power of “MY DAD” ,whose dominance make me laugh ,whose shouting makes me feel that he is still a kid ,whose immense tolerance & Love has made me a loving human ,whose gigantic heart within has made me love all ,whose mantra of Humanity has made me the person I am today! He is my stepping stone of success today!
I may have found the prince of my life, but he is & will remain the KING of my life not just in this life but in all life’s I live !! Words cannot express ,Speech cannot say ,My pen isn’t stopping from writing this post ,nothing in this world can help me express how much I love you ,how much I respect you ,how much honour I feel to be a part of you! Thanks for touching my life now & from ages .Yes Dad, a big Hug to you for all you have done for me!
