Dedicated to all fathers
(Mostly translated from the great write up of my face book friend sri Anantha Narayanan. Thanks Sir. I did shed a tear remembering my father)
It is very easy to become a father but it is difficult to be a father,
The courage and stability every one gets is from their tap root called father,
The roll model for every one in almost everything is only their father,
And because of this father is the greatest gift every one gets from God.
He at any time would be equal to thousands of teachers to their children,
AS he is the lamp that always shows the way in darkness of the path of their life.
To bring up their children the way they want a father carries very many crosses,
And the pain that he gets when those children disregard him is inestimable.
A father dedicates all his life to his children and always thinks only about their future,
And because of this , though his love and affection is in no way less than that of the mother,
He keeps it as a secret and shows himself as some one who is very strict ,
And keeps on shouting and correcting them though his mind sheds blood at that time.
The Plants called children would grow up luxuriously if they get the light ,
From their father who is the Sun and water of affection from their mother ,
No doubt no one can love their children as much as their mother ,
But their love makes them blind to the wrongs committed by them,
And it is the father who stifles all his love within himself and corrects their wrongs.
If Our society or religion gets a good person to nurture them ,
You can be rest assured that behind them is a father who puts on the mask of a tormentor,
For just like an elephant’s strength is in a trunk , the future good citizen’s strength is in his confidence,
And this river of confidence in every person minds starts from the mountain like father.
This confidence is got by every child when it takes its first step holding hands of their father,
And they learn to fall , get up and bear the pain of the wounds from their father.
This society can never have a good man without the healthy cooperation ,
Of Affection as well as the strength of the mother and the father ,
A mother carries the baby carrying it on her hips so that she can always see him,
And the father on the other hand carries it on his shoulders so that , they would be greater than him.
A child till it becomes parent of other children never ever realizes ,
The amount of loan taken by the father to fulfil his/her wishes,
The struggles that he underwent to repay back those loans,
And the number of sleepless nights he spent wondering how they would fulfil the desires of their children
IN the hairless exterior of their heads ,
In the cracks of their feet , which gives them pain,
In their hands where the blue and red veins are clearly seen,
And in the silver like moustaches of our fathers,
The struggle that our father underwent lives with great peace.
He would have hidden hundreds of such pains so that their children do not become sad,
He would have worked day and night producing extra sweat to fulfil the desires of their children,
He would have daily struggled and tortured their body to pull the cart of the famly,
Their hearts would have wept when before their son wakes up he had go to work and return only when they are deep in sleep again,
He would have constantly undergone mental torture when He goes to some other country ,
Leaving their children here , so that their children would not suffer like him.
Imagine how cruel his life would have been when he sees you all only in the photo of all of you pasted on his cot
A young man without asking gets the gifts
Of valour ,, courage . work without losing hope , confidence and struggle to work,
From their good father even without asking for it?
Even when his child grows up and becomes an adult , a father sees them as his baby and guides him in every step of his life.
He says, “Do not get scared?””Do not be break down , whatever may happen” because I am there for you,
These are the daily orders and commands from him to them so that , they would never suffer.
Even if a father becomes old , and becomes not able to walk , he never forgets to tell these words. For he knows that for his children his voice is sufficient.
