He thinks I’m mad that I take care of him so much and so does the world. But I can’t help it. What are children meant for, if not to be there for their parents?” asks Nikita Josephine, a post - graduate from St Francis College with a slight smile on her face revealing a father’s importance in her life.

He thinks I’m mad that I take care of him so much and so does the world. But I can’t help it. What are children meant for, if not to be there for their parents?” asks Nikita Josephine, a post - graduate from St Francis College with a slight smile on her face revealing a father’s importance in her life.

Father’s Day is celebrated to honour men who’ve given their children a life of comfort keeping all the worries for them self. Although, celebration of the day is a relatively new concept in India as compared to the other countries; it is often recognised by gifting, cutting cakes and a dinner. Personalised or to say customised gifts and the ‘do it yourself’ craft have taken on as the new trend among youth.

When asked about her father’s role in her life, 20-something Chesta Badjatya, who is currently pursuing her Masters says, “It feels great when people tell I am exactly like my father (his copy). Looking at his courage and determination in varied situations gives me a lot of strength to deal with all the ups and downs that come in my way.”

Adding humour along with keeping the essence of his contribution, homemaker Avani Jain avers, “I would thank him for the genes he’s given, which was a reason for my personality.”

Call him ‘dad’, ‘papa’, ‘daddy’, ‘appa’, ‘abbu’ or by any other name the role he plays for his child, feelings and unconditional love for them sets aside all religions, caste or any sorts of human divisions. On one hand where he treats his daughter like a princess and his son like a people’s saviour, he also gives them the courage, support and affection.

Some people take to the day by thanking their father for standing by their side amidst all problems. Sr Executive – Communications at Dr Reddy’s Foundation Priyanjali says, “I can’t describe the impact he has on my life. I always pray to God to keep him safe and pain-free for years to come.”

Article trainee at BDO international Kunal Kotak states love for his father, “Even if I can achieve what as much as my father has, I will conclude my journey in peace.”

Describing the relationship of a father with his son, Sunand Godha, a student of Mass Communication says, “It is like a ball and the wall. He throws you so hard on the wall that you bounce back with double the speed and are ready to face the harsh realities of the world. It’s not that he enjoys it, he just prepares you for success.”He concludes by saying, “Trust him and you will never be disappointed.” We couldn’t agree more!
