Have you ever subconsciously hugged your dad? If not, this Father's Day, go give the biggest hug to your idol- to you father!
One man any person idolizes,
the man to whom everybody looks up to,
the man who smiles at end of a tiring day,
the man who makes everything possible,
the man who has solutions to each undefined problem
is none other than an adorable FATHER.
Father sets an example to children on how to move ahead in life though obstacles surround them. His teachings and lessons help one reach the goal with clarity and solidity.
A father is a person who sets a goal, believes in us and shows us the path to reach the greatest height. A belief in a father’s heart makes a person so stronger than any big obstacle seems to be a tiny pebble, and that kind of blind belief takes you long in the journey of life.
My father made me strong,
to continue alone and go long.
The bond is now set to loose,
So one is confident for any cruise.
Fathers are so strong, and most are less expressive than mothers. Children, generally hug mothers now and then, and less often dad. Have you ever thought, why is it so?
On second thought, fathers are posed as the spinal cord of the family and strongest while everyone else in the family feels weak in a particular situation; he stands like a rock- steady in any high tide circumstances.
So a simple thank you now and then shall make your relationship stronger and merrier, so it’s wonderful to thank your dad.
Fathers are so extraordinary- that mind boggles when it comes to gifting them something special. Even saying thank you to parents is hard at times, seems simple but it’s a hard task; isn’t it.
Sometimes gifts correctly express one’s feelings. But what to gift as every gift seems to be petty in front of your role model father.
After a lot of thought, I ended to give him something that will make me connect to him more and take his positive vibes and blessings. It is none other than a tight hug from a loving dad. “My fingers may be small, but I can still wrap daddy around them.”
A hug is an exceptional gift that one can give as many as one wishes, and one gets immense happiness in return. It is a priceless gift that will fill your heart with the treasure of memorable moments and compassion.
So, hug your dad and gift him a remarkable present. Many of us may be staying away from our loving father but don’t miss your chance when you meet him.

Freelance or full-time, which is a better mode of work for you? Here are the pros and cons, from someone who has been-there-done-that.
For women who are restarting their careers after marriage, motherhood, or any other personal reasons, freelance work is an excellent avenue to consider. I think I’m qualified to make this statement because I’ve been there, done that.
When we had to shift from Chennai to Bangalore because of my personal situation, I was both excited and anxious; excited about the new pastures I was going to explore, and anxious that it should all work out well for us; for me, my husband, and our daughter (5 years old then).
Bangalore welcomed us with open arms and there has been no looking back since. I had just completed a corporate training course a month before moving to Bangalore, and was looking at new opportunities.
Most of us dislike being called aunty because of the problematic meanings attached to it. But isn't it time we accept growing old with grace?
Recently, during one of those deep, thoughtful conversations with my 3 y.o, I ended a sentence with “…like those aunty types.” I quickly clicked my tongue. I changed the topic and did everything in my hands to make her forget those last few words.
I sat down with a cup of coffee and drilled myself about how the phrase ‘aunty-type’ entered my lingo. I have been hearing this word ‘aunty’ a lot these days, because people are addressing me so.
Almost a year ago, I was traveling in a heavily-crowded bus and a college girl asked me “Aunty, can you please hold my bag?” It was the first time and I was first shocked and later offended. Then I thought about why I felt so.
