Today on Facebook all I can see are the posts flooded with the Fathers day wishes. Every one are busy thanking their dad for being the best dad in the world. Looking at these posts, I remember some blur images from my memories of my dad. I think how much my life would be different if my dad would have been there. I had lost my dad when I was 5 and yet even after 22 years, I still find that void in my heart as it is. And I am sure it will remain the same until I am alive.
If I get a chance to say a few words to my dad, I would tell him how much I had missed him all these years. I missed him on the days when I would see my friends dad who use to come to pick them up after the school hours. I remember today how I had learnt to mask my emotions at such a young age. I missed him on the first day of my Engineering college, when I had carried that heavy bag of mine all alone till the hostel. I had seen how everyone else was dependent on their dad for such things.
I missed my dad everytime I went back to my hometown during vacations. When other girls would get down from the bus, their dad would be waiting for their princess, with a smile on their face, to take her home. And here I would be waiting for an auto with my luggage to take me back home.
I missed my dad on the day of my marriage. I imagined how much emotional he would have been on that day, when he would see his only daughter getting married.
I have never discussed about my dad even with the people close to me. But, today I am writing the unadulterated feelings of mine, on this fathers day. Everyone learn something from their dad. And I can proudly say even I have learnt something. I have learnt being self dependent. I am an independent practical women today and it's all because of you pappa. I am just like you.
Happy fathers day to the bestest dad in the world.
