Father as a friend

Dad, I never understood you or your up bringing. You and me never got along, I would vibe with my mom but vibing with you was always scary and difficult. It’s righty said “Two kings can’t stay in the same jungle” 😅 – I guess that’s why we never get along. We all have written poems, shayris, songs and what not for our moms, but our dad – he didn’t even receive 1% of the appraisal that he deserves. Dads are the pillars of our future; they set a base and lead by as an example. Agree it or not, our dad is the first superhero of our lives. Idols come by and go, but our Dad will always be our role model. There is a reason why I have chosen this topic today. There’s a serial called “Tera Yaar Hoon Main” which is telecasted on sab tv, on weekdays at 9pm. This serial has made me realised how important a dad is for a child. Moms shape our future while our dads work hard to support us financially and mentally. The serial starts with the father’s attempt to befriend his son. We have a picture of dads being strict and orthodoxical; but nowadays even dads are cool. Dads and sons share a special and brotherly bonds these days. In the serial, the dad tries many things to be close to his son. His only reason for befriending his son is that his son comes up to his father at times of problem. Dads are the best advisors anyone can have, cause they have seen the world before us, and they know what the world expects from us. A dad’s efforts are always misunderstood. His care is misunderstood for his “bossing around”His questions are misunderstood as his “unnecessary interference in our personal space.” We have an issue sharing things with our dad cause we think that “Bhai papa kya sochege!” We have a fear of dads cause we think that his childhood wasn’t as interesting as us; we think he grew up without fun and without the understanding of sarcasm and messing around. Let me quote what Sushant Singh Rajput said:“Maine Bohot kuch meri Maa se sikha hai,Lekin Bohot kuch seekh sakte ho, yeh Maine mere Papa se sikha hai!”❤️

Our dads teach us to be calm, composed, strong and smart. If we ever have any issues, we know that our dad’s advice will be the most useful one. We know that our dads want the best for us, but it’s just that we are so busy portraying a wrong picture about him that we never ever try being a friend to him. Dads also want to be our friends, but he always maintains his distance so that we don’t feel awkward. He gives us his space so that we don’t get irritated by his presence. In the serial too, the son just doesn’t want to befriend his father because he thinks ‘A dad can’t be our friend.”

I choose this topic today because it’s my dad’s birthday and there is no better day to post this! I am just thankful to him for whatever he did for me. I have always felt that what he is doing for me “he is meant to do it!” But I was wrong.

He has done more than I deserve. He has adjusted his dreams so he could fulfil mine. It would be wrong to say that he has not done everything I wished from him cause he gave me all he had! I know we haven’t been the typical best – friends wali Jodi but yes I can always trust you and I know you have my back!

It will always be you who I look up to❤️ You will always be my role model❤️ I really am thankful to have you in my life, and I can’t imagine my life without you.

Love you dad🌍 Happiest birthday!❤️🎂

All I could do is just Hug you for what you have done, and be by your side when you need me!❤️

  1. Yes it’s true that 2 lion can not share same den but it’s always true that father lion wants his son lion to build bigger den then that of his.

    Father and son are two side of a coin u can not make a coin unless u have 2 side to it and can not imaging of a coin without both of them.

    Understanding thought and dream of a son and trying to make him achieve is always a first preference of a father and so is of mine.

    Thanking for wishing me in such a beautiful manner my birthday .

  4. Very well written Soham.
    It takes time to realise importance of dads in life…they are always silent figures. Personally for me it happened when I started earning and shouldering responsibility and strengthened after my own marriage.
    Good that you came around sooner. Cherish and live the bond to fullest.👍
    Parag Sir 🙏
