Happy Father’s day to all the wonderful strong supportive Fathers in the world. Fathers are the most important person in their children’s lives and it is seen that Father’s presence, love, care and effort makes a big impact on their children as they grow up to be strong and confident person.

Fathers are considered to be the backbone of a family. I lost my Father when i was very young so who better than me can understand the importance of Father in any daughter’s life. ” May you rest in peace papa, I miss you”.

With my Father’s blessings which always stays with me and by the grace of god I found a very strong, supportive, and caring father figure in the form my father-in-law. He has filled the gap of father in my life. Happy Father’s day  Papaji, wish you a long and healthy life.

In today’s era Fathers job is similar to mothers in terms of providing care to their children. My both daughters really look up to their Dad as their hero.For each and every tiny problem they first run to him or call him as if he is a magician and can fix any problem in a blink of eye. They always rely on their father for almost  everything.  At the same time they try their best to make him happy and proud Father by their small little acts. This bond is adorable.
