He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it

Today is Father’s day and I can write a book on my father – yes, as I have learnt things in life looking at him, learning from his actions and yes I am known as ‘I am like my dad’ and I feel proud about it.

“One father is more than a hundred Schoolemasters.” ~George Herbert

But today I am here to share something which always will remain in my heart as other things remain still in my heart about my dad :D

I remember the day I got my first copy of my book “Khawabon Ki Zameen” to edit and everyone at home was fighting to grab it and feel it :D….I could only hold to it and just run the pages ….but my dad…when he got it he just sat there with it and read till 20 pages at one sitting :D….I think I saw my fan….my inspiration there!!!!

Yes, my dad always did this and that’s why I am where I am because of him.
This morning I got this mail saying my blog has won the "Blog of the Day Award", which I would like to dedicate to my Dad :)

“A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.” ~Enid Bagnold

I love you dad, I always do.

I have sent my released book as a gift to my dad for father’s day :)

Happy Father’s Day to every dad….
