    He is so kind and generous.

    We love him too.

    And mom keep writing. Well done!

  3. That's really a sweet post. Nothing can replace dad's love. For every girl, dad is her first hero and for every dad his daughter is most beautiful princess.

    Thanks for sharing, God bless 🙂

  4. Sukhi,your Dad sounds like a wonderful person…and the many gifts he gave you while growing up became a defining part of who you are as an adult. The beauty is he passed those traits on. You share a great Love with your Dad…I know how that feels. Thank you for sharing this beautiful story of father and daughter…

    Suuukhiiii, what an article….sob, sob, sob……I will always be grateful to your father for giving me an opportunity to live my life with such a beautiful person. Thank You DAD.

  8. Lovely post. I think all girls do love their dads in a different way. I see it with my own daughter. But as a mum I also sympathise with the mother's role – we are so often the ones who have to lay down the law as we are the main carers but dads can come home after work and be the fun one with just time for a few kisses and cuddles before bedtime.

    I don't want to be seen as the bad guy – but it is always me reminding the kids it's bedtime, it's times for homework, piano practice and so on. I know it was the same with my own mum and dad but my consolation is that although I had this kind of softspot and really special relationship with my dad as you do I am also v close to my mum although it's always been a much more volatile realtionship!

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful memories

      Totally agree with you……..if our dad's are soft, then it is our mom's responsibility to make us what we are today……..am grateful to my mom for making me a strong personality.

  9. Sukhi love that picture of you and your dad. Dads are something so special and different. Reading your post I could sense that intense longing in you to be with him. Really touched me.

    Emotionally Riding thoughts … For once, I was in Flashback!!.. Cherished all d Moments tt i had spent wid Dad wen i was wid him at Home… all d Sobs wen he went on Sailings, his best efforts to change mumma’s mind to buy me a Dog, he saving me from mumma’s scoldings .. ahh!!..n Now in Hostel .. Feel like catching d Next BUS n Go TO DELHI.. n “HUG” him as Tight as possible n Repeat the Lines, ” I WILL NEVA EVA LEAVE U N GO”.. :’)

    Awsum it is Aunty… 🙂

    • sukhi

      We girls always say that………..I will never leave you and go. But then we all have to go. DADS are always so special. Hold him and hug him whenever you meet him and say thank you to him for everything.That’s the best we can do for them.

    Beautiful article Aunty! My eyes were wet while I was going through it! The way you have pen down your feelings for your father I think it refreshes the memories,of the all the readers, of the time spent with their father ! I think from now on I'll value the time more which I spent with my Dad!….:)

    • sukhi

      thank you amrita for reading……..try and spend as much time with your parents, one day when we are so faraway…….we are only left with these memories.So have the best of them.

  16. I’ve read this several times when it was posted, and as I told everybody else, when it’s a “dad” post or anything about love for a father, I’d love it.

    I, most of the times, envy this kind of posts, lol. It’s kind of weird for me if I’ll share something so intimate between me and my dad.

    This one has particularly touched my heart. Your dad is like a hero and I could feel through your experiences how much he has been involved in your life.

    Thanks for sharing this.

Share your thoughts before leaving :)
