Hey everyone, your best friend Sara here. I agree with 10 year old Dhriti from Chennai, when she says we need to celebrate our special dads through the year and not just on Fathers Day. Read this endearing essay and hopefully all dads will share the workload of parenting as beautifully as Dhriti’s dad.
Read with Sara: Essay- My Super Dad
As a daughter, I have always been attached to my father. He is the one who always protects me from my mother’s scoldings! He showers me with his love and teaches me kindness. And most importantly, he leads me to the safe and the best path, even though it may be filled with thorns and problems.
He supports my dreams and helps me pursue them. My father has helped me through whichever problems I have gone through.
Now let me tell you some incidents involving my father and me.
When I was around 2-3 years old, I once got high fever. My parents were very worried as it was the first time when I had such high fever. My father never left my side. My mom told me that I used to blabber something or the other. Each day and night, he stayed near me trying to make me feel better.
I recall the first time I got lost. We had gone on a trip to Amritsar to see the Golden temple. After the prayer we had gone to collect prasadam. My father was holding my hand as he moved his hands to collect prasadam, I suddenly went missing! Finally he found me dancing joyfully at the entrance!
Fathers dedicate their lives to keep their family happy and safe. They are willing to do anything to protect their family, even betting their own lives. So, I do not think one day is truly enough for the hard work our fathers have done. Yes, we need to celebrate them through the year
