Of Fathers and Daughters

22 Jul

I know Father’s Day is long gone but I recently took this picture and couldnt help wondering about it. There is something so warm and fuzzy about a father daughter relationship. They share a very special and unique bond unlike any other. I am told that when my baby sister was born, I brought the house down at the prospect of having to share my mom and finally gave in with a heavy heart but when it came to my dad, I just plain refused, ‘NO WAY. HE IS MINE’!

The beauty of this relationship is that it has stayed the same over generations, no change, no evolution. Years ago, it was ‘Baabul ki duwayein leti ja’ and today it is ‘Papa ki pari hoon mai’.

The picture in question, which sums it all –

Although, I love being a mom and I would never give it up for anything else, I sometimes wonder how it would be to be a dad and experience that warm and fuzzy love!!

    Thanks Tima. A mom can be a mom, sister, friend, agony aunt but a dad is always THE HERO 🙂

    My Dad has often said this to me (mostly when we are arguing).. "Tu baap ka dil kabhi nahi samjhegi.. tu samajh hi nahi sakti.."It used to make me so mad, but I guess he's right about that one :)Love the picture.. it made me miss my Dad..-g

    Thanks G! Its so true about dads! My husband surprises me at times with some of his dad traits and his 'baap ka dil'.
