It was Father’s Day last week and the social media was full of emotional messages for the dads across the globe. Let’s be honest, it’s just one day, we talk about the Superhero of our life. Rest days we boast about the sacrifices mothers do for their kids. How they juggle different roles, their sleepless nights and unbounded selfless love for the family etc etc. I don’t deny that a mother is the bearer of the family but we cant overlook the fact that a father is the pillar of the house. Fathers are generally men of few words and unlike mothers, they dont shower their love and express their feelings often. But, does that make them less important? NO!
The moment, a baby is born, parents are also born but we talk about only mothers. A father also have the equal contribution in making you. Just because, he doesn’t go through the labour pain and contractions, his love is underestimated and overshadowed by the roars of motherhood.
Like your mother, he also fell in love with you the moment he laid his eyes upon you for the first time. His priorities also changed in life after your arrival. He also tries his best to protect you from any evil. Makes the best arrangements to welcome you home from the hospital, checks twice if your cot is bugfree before placing you in it. As you grow up, he prevents you from falling down from your bicycle, accompanies you to the parks so that you don’t hit yourself while swinging or taking rides. He acts as an invisible safety net for you throughout his life, no matter how old you grow.
While a mother juggles various roles raising you up, a father is no less. After a tiring day, working arduously and commuting long hours, he still plays with you joyfully, helps you with the maths homework, listens to your school tales, plans for the weekend outings or your birthday celebrations and much more while managing the finances of the family back of his mind.
