Today marks the 63rd birthday of the greatest man I’ve ever met.
If only technology came early for us, I would have done the same thing for you. I would write the things I can’t say and share every significant milestone in my life with you. I guess, we are only the two persons in the family to the entire clan, who are negatively perceived as the person of few words. We don’t talk much because we don’t want to become contributors to our chaotic environment. You never gave me advices and words of encouragement, but I realized that a lot of the values and principles I have in life came from you. You gave me the best parenting approach, living by example. Your entire life was a showcase of patience, selflessness, humility, hardwork, respect for elders and silence in mind and heart.
You never read me books. We never talked that much but you gave me the best learnings about life. I can’t even think of a way to honor and gratify you. My entire life and humbled achievements will always be a tribute to the all the love and sacrifices you have endured.
Happy Birthday to the man whose silence overflows with principles, values, love and greatness.
Happy Birthday Daddy.
