I know just a few words cannot describe him. This is my child like attempt. 

When I was a child he bought me toys, dresses, books and my favorite sweets like any other good father. He admitted me to one of the best schools, not worrying about the fees. In fact, our relatives were against educating a girl child. My father never listened to them and gave us this opportunity. With all the responsibilities on his shoulders, he has been working so hard all these years for us. I know it is the responsibility of the parents to give all the good things to their children. But they never settle for the good, always, they are in search of the better and the best constantly. They are persistent even in times of financial crisis, when they can choose to settle for just the good one. But, no they cannot compromise with the facilities they give to their children. Isn't that something to be thanked for? Yeah, I realize it now... now, when grown up and I am all by myself.

Dad does not demand anything but, just our well being and our success. He is not dependent even now on us; if we children buy him something he says, 'what was the necessity to get this? I have all'. 

We always have talked about the mothers, their hard work and unconditional love but rarely about the fathers. When a mother is working at home for us, a father is too toiling hard outside for the same, for us his true treasures. We are celebrating Mother’s day since many years with such a joy but didn't even know when the Father's Day is. I didn't even bother to check it on calendar. Did you? I really thought there is no such day. Why did I feel so, well that is a question I am still pondering over. There are reminders on all the channels on TV and FM for the Mother's Day every year. But never heard a bit about Father's Day. Why? Have we all become feminists? Or the atrocities on women have shadowed the good men and their contribution to the world! Doesn't every good person in the world needs to be celebrated? Now, I am feeling that there should be a debate on this on TIMES NOW. Wouldn't that be a great idea to talk about and stand up for the good men? :).

Feeling sorry for not doing this, these many years. So, not forgetting my bit, without much delay now, I need to hug and tell him what a great dad he is.

This father’s day, I am expressing my love towards my dad by participating in the #HugYourDad activity at BlogAdda in association with Vicks.
