A Son Never Forgets…

with 5 comments

Today is father’s day… A day marked for all fathers of the world… Baba, my father, is no more with me, it has been 3 years that he left me and moved on to his heavenly abode…

I am a father to a one-year old now… Rajvir plays in my arms, calls me ‘Papa’ and smiles at me most lovingly… And each time he does that, I cannot help but remember and miss Baba…

Baba taught me many things, in fact all the things that I know and do were taught by him. Now that i am a father myself, I recall many of them every day.

Baba was different; way different than many parents. Normally, to encourage a kid to pick up a new thing, parents compare him or her to other kids and say, “Hey kid, you are doing great…and see, your friend or cousin doesn’t know it, you are doing too good…”

Baba, on the contrary, used to tell me, “Hey, you are doing very good! Now, let’s get together and teach this to your friend or cousin…”

He was indeed different… way ahead of his time…

Today, I want to tell him, a son never forgets… I will try and raise my son with the same values my Baba instilled in me, by living them everyday.

Miss you, Baba. Happy Father’s Day…

  1. Every body could be Father but Baba is special. It’s only when you become Father to Dad, we understand the difference.
    Happy Father’s Day.

    • Thank you, Poonam. A leader is merely a connector of talent within the team. I simply try and play that role.

  3. Loss of parent is insufferable but I realized the parents wants your light so shine before world that they may see your moral excellence and good deeds, glorify your Parents Who see us from heaven. Missing my Father … Who imparted strength in me …………..but I am still not tough enough to bear this pain.
