"It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was." - Anne Sexton "
There could be no other time if not now, for me to write this. ( I know this post is a day late, but better late than never!)
For all the pamperings that you have showered on me
For all the hardships that you went through inorder to get me to whatever I am today
For all the games we played, outings that we have had
For being so unselfish, generous and always giving
For all the things that you have got me even before I asked for it
For calling me subbudu( I loved the name just cos u called me so appa)
For trusting me completely and giving me all the freedom to do/ talk what I want
For letting me make my own choices
Appa, I love u for all this and much more. I still remember, how everytime you happen to go for an eat out, but dont eat there, instead pack it up and bring it home for me all the way. I have not seen you buying a new dress for yourself, they were so rare.You dont take leave, no new shoes and you dont waste anything. Save and squirrel every little thing and spend it on your kids.I am so proud of being your daughter. I wish to be as nice, gentle, unselfish, generous,sacrificing as you are appa.
Happy Fathers Day appa
