A Father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way ’’

21st June 2020 , yet another day in this COVID-19 phase, but this day is just not like any other day, it’s special. Any guesses?

Not because of international yoga day, or the biggest solar eclipse, these are also crucial events but today is the day to celebrate the most unsung, upraised, unnoticed and yet one of the most valuable assets of our society, our family - our fathers. Yes, 21 June 2020 is Father’s day.

Inadequate Love

I was going through YouTube to find some songs dedicated to fathers and guess what ?

I couldn’t find much and when I just replace the 'P' of papa with 'M' of mama, then there came a big list of songs for our mothers. The question here is not that why we have less songs for our fathers as compared to our mothers, but the question is why is the contribution of our fathers in our life not celebrated or not given the deserved respect and recognition?

That Missing Space

Many people say that since our mothers keep us in her womb for 9 months, her contribution and her importance in our life is unmatched. Agreed! But what about that man who, in those 9 months, can’t feel the child but still works hard and hard for the well being of his coming child. They can’t express there emotions very well but that doesn’t mean that they don’t feel it.

When our father misses our birthday party due to office work, we get angry at him and tend to say “You only love your work and not me“. Ever wondered why they missed our birthday parties, our annual functions, PTMs ? So that his boss doesn’t cut his salary which he earns for us, his children. And after sacrificing all the fun, missing the precious moments of his life for us, we still get angry at them. Sad, isn't it?

Fathers - Our Dear “Coconuts”

It is very easy for us to share our thoughts and feelings with our mom, but ever tried sharing your feelings with your father? Well, many of us have this pre-conceived notion that our father will not understand. But dear readers, you are highly mistaken. Fathers are like coconuts, they surely don’t express their emotions but that doesn’t mean that they don’t understand us.

Try to talk to them, apart from asking for your pocket money from your father, for once, ask his time and talk. It’s magical, a feeling that can’t be expressed. 

Think and Thank

Many people say that are mothers are selfless and they think about their children before thinking about themselves and I agree with all of them. But dear readers, our fathers, I think they are more selfless than our mothers. Want to know why?

So we all spend a lot of money on shopping, at parties, etc. and even our mothers buy jewelry, cosmetics, clothes, etc. With whom’s money? Our father’s, right?

And these people get satisfied seeing us happy and fulfilling our needs and for them this is their real income - So aren’t they selfless ??

Now many people would say that even mothers work and still they manage the house. So dear friends, times have changed, even fathers now have taken up moms' jobs, but still they aren't getting the kind of love, respect and recognition they deserve and after doing so much, they always get compared to our mothers and do not get the deserved position. But they won’t complain because there happiness lies in our happiness and nothing else.

Dear readers, if our mothers are tea, then our fathers are sugar. If mothers are trees, fathers are its branches. If mothers are stars, then fathers are the moon. In a nutshell, our parents are equally responsible for our existence and they both make ample amount of sacrifices for us with a big smile on their faces.

So on this Father’s Day, let’s make it special for our fathers, for our heroes. Let’s talk to them, let’s bake a cake for them. Let’s make a card for them, let us make them feel special and thank them for being our fathers.
