The concern on his countenance never leaves,
the love in his heart never deceives,
he may not show his care,
but his thoughts are always there,
the epitome of sacrifice,
the wall shielding the family,
the hope, the grit, the force,
the navigator helping his loved ones
to never sway away from course,
he who stands tall in the moment of adversity
he is my Father
My dad is no more in person, but his thoughts and lessons are going to stay with me for a lifetime. His sacrifices and his unprecedented love will always remind me of what a true father should be like. He encouraged me to succeed, was hard on me to ensure I taste success, yet when I failed few times he was the first one to pick up my shattered soul. He taught me to be a kind soul, a passionate individual and keeping family interest before mine.
He was in the Indian Air Force and one thing he engrained me to the core is the art of being disciplined. There is so much I have learned from him a blog will never do justice. Today I just want to leave you with two thoughts he used to always say
“Eat what you take, take what you can eat”
“If you have nothing to do, don’t do it here”
Happy Father’s Day to you all.
