Papa

I wonder at times..  i was born when my papa was 40 yrs old.
i'm the youngest [22 yrs] out of the four children he has. And the eldest is of 34 yrs something, i don't exactly remember his age.




The best days I remember with him are those when ...

* He bought me, my first princess Barbie, way back in 1993, It was an imported Doll in India and way too COSTLY.

*We both used to go to park to exercise daily, from jogging, playing Frisbee, lazying over the green grass to catching BUTTERFLIES.

*He used to bring and keep animals to increase our "general knowledge" we have  ......... kept...........a baby EAGLE, A wild Green bird, a sparrow, many chickens, pair of DUCKS, several dogs, Grey Pigeons, cats, Rabbits, and others which can never come in pet category like leeches!

he brought a caterpillar once and showed his life cycle to us! he kept in an airy jar, with leaves and flowers freshly plucked from the park everyday ... it grew into a pupa to a b'ful and Large butterfly!! It was amazing experience when we saw it flying.. and hovering on flowers for its first taste of nectar!


* We both used to go to Book fairs and buy  books and encyclopedia for me, a fun pass time we used to do together.like reading about animals and  developments in science. he introduced "computer" to me..

* He bought me my first thick "Enid Blyton book, the Enchanted Tree"  and I stepped in my world of imagination and stayed there.

* He used to drive me to my "high school" and when i feared for the examination, he used to take me to walks after I took my exam and we DISCUSSED my exam. Yes, he used to drop me to my school and picked me as well.

* He used to engross himself completely when i took my "Senior High School" examinations. and Taught me Political Science and Sociology. how can I forget English!!!  Growing up in a family of teachers added to my advantage!

* He was angry but then calmed over MY decision to be a lawyer.

*He has always paid my Tuition fees, books, leisure money, cinema tickets, shoes, allowances, party expenditures... every  thing I own is bought from his hard earned Money. 


*He recommended "withania's use for my thyroid" 

*now when he asks me to switch off the lights.. he wants to sleep in completely dark room.. i see him getting old...

*whenever  Faheim and I  sit together.. he looks pleased.. at least he knows,he has inculcated in me the best attitide a father could provide to his daughter...

I have never taken any of my relationship for granted .. if its with Faheim, 9 years old relationship or with my dad, 23 yrs old relationship. I'm serious about them.



[My papa, is a Prof. of English language, and a Doctor of Naturopathy [ Alternative Medicines] and spl. in Yoga. ]




Happy Papa's day to All.

  13. Dear Naqvee, how lovely it is to re-visit you again!

    I know it's been way too long -- mea culpa.

    Your wonderful trbute to your Dad makes me miss all the things I never had with my own (gone four years now) -- and I think it's wonderful your acknowledgment of him. No doubt he is quite proud.

    I hope life is treating you kind as you so deserve -- you are an inspiration to your generation and beyond. Bless you, darling gal!

    I have thought of you and your lovliness so frequently...

    Peace and serenity,
