As my crisp poem goes, I’v been an apple of eye for my family ,having spent most of my years in a joint family ,learning & playing with dada dadi ,chacha chachi, but amongst all this ,it has been a most wonderful memories with my dad ,a nostalgic feeling sets in even today to recall those days when I had him on my side as my Play mate or Study mate or even Cartoon mate..
We’ve spent winters making little braids out of his hair & laughing & dancing all around on the terrace
We’ve spent rains, splashing water & swaying our little paper boats..
We’ve spent every evening making & flying our Rockets along with him..
We’ve spent every months of Jan –Feb & Aug enjoying the plight of neighbour’s to see their kites blown off by him 😉
He has been a saviour when I ran away from those boring studies 😉
He sat with me to watch my favourite Cartoon ,Doraemon ,leaving aside his matches
I remember seeing him dance on high music of Prabhudeva’s songs (Muqabala) & making us chuckle & enjoy the days
I miss the days when we used to play cricket in “house lobby” with mom shouting behind the scenes! I miss those days of having Gulab Jamun eating competition 😉
I miss those days of having Bread & Home butter with Kellogg’s cornflakes & Chocos!

I really miss every moment, every day, every minute & thank God to bless me with such wonderful friends, who gave me all the comfort & freedom of life along with the necessary learning’s to be a good human!
Well, such has been my relation with my parents, never authoritative, but always a cooperative, interactive with mutual give & take from both sides. In all phases when I needed their suggestions, support, love, care & understanding, they were always besides me. Writing from the core of my heart this relation of parents cum best friends has inculcated immense respect for so called “Parents” in the form of God bestowed upon us.
Agree, many of the parents still do not believe in “Buddy Parenting” with many theories supporting & few criticizing the same. But whatever the theories have to say, it all matters on the quantum of openness you bring into. A controlled buddy parent is the best to have the child enjoy the most beautiful relationship along with the knowledge of where to draw the boundaries.
So till then, enjoy the Parent –Child Relationship, the most amazing one on this planet!
