My Dear Dad!
I am sitting right next to a window, from where I can see an oozed traffic coming and going on Shiekh Zayed Road, contrary to that right in front me is the view of luxurious Emirates Towers, which indeed with the passage of time will start to shine like diamonds. With a corner of my eye I can even see, yes of course a Li’l blurred – Dubai Pyramid. Sun is shining all over me while m still siting cold and blue in my office just because with all these luxurious views I’m missing the best sketch of your face. I remember when the last time we spoke on the phone you said, “You write quite well my doll, please write something for ME”. But DAD, here’s the problem, no matter how well I can write, I will not able to justify the emotions and feelings – that I have for you or for that matter the happiness and blessings I feel when I see your face. Though, I would definitely try my best to favor the sentiments. This one’s for you PA!
My mum told me, when I was born, her room was full of blossoming flowers, sweets and the essence of father hood. Father – my father has protected me with his love – from stomach-ache to heartache, knuckled knees to hurtful heels, my baby book to my thesis, from my first cycle ride to car dive, from cradle to my DOLI, my DAD has loved me abundantly and infinitely. He has taught me some incredible ways to cherish life with love and kindness. A true father is always there for you, regardless of his meetings or his headaches; he is there with his bony arms to catch her when she stumbles while her first walk till the last. The sound wave of that echo DAD is always cherished in his heart. He is there to teach her at the youngest age, even though she might not understand half of it. He was there when I was learning to write, talk or walk. In my toughest hour he was furious not because I did wrong, just because he couldn’t see me in pain.
When people around me, admires me – the pride in me Dad’s voice is mesmerizing. My choice of words or choice of soulful music – all I know today is all because of you. Do you remember, the very first time when I rode bicycle? I was scared – very very scared – but I remember your voice ” Go Girl, I have got your back”. The feeling is not perished at all, it is still fresh as blossoming as your existence. The feeling is undefined – when you call my name, the sound is so beautiful, I feel my name is protected, I feel I am sheltered.
We have lived our deepest despairs with dignity and with togetherness. Because you taught us no matter what, Love will find a way. I remember those beautiful nights when I use to read books to you. Finally the time came – the time of life, where I took a step forward to make my own family. I remember the first time you told me, “Girl it’s time to make me proud, it’s time to live my teachings, and it’s time to get married.” I was blue as by the thought “kina jamiyan tey kina lay janiya” but when we walked down the aisle of blossoms once again, but this time you were telling me “My li’l girl has become a woman now, You have to design your husband’s house with smiles, love and care. You have to love him and support him unconditionally.” And then you kissed my forehead and said, May God Bless you today and forever, and tears rolled down on both of our cheeks. But somehow you managed to smile with the same dignity and elegance as you had at the very first time when you hold me in your arms and then you smile, that smile was yours was and still is my strength.
Thanks Pa, for telling me how blessed I am, for letting me know that love is beautiful and blissful. Thanks for making my every move a worth and thanks for telling that I’m beautiful. If people think I have live my life with norms and values, and if they consider me a good human – its all because of you.
I owe it you all, completely and thoroughly. Whether its life values or musical notes, my best handwriting or my sensitivity towards every soul. My inspiration, my charm, my life, my world, my colours, my rainbow, my best buddy, my teacher, my guardian, my hero, OMG the dictionary has not enough words to name you as you deserve.
May God bless you, with more dignity, respect, health, wealth, prosperity and long life. Ameen.
I love you DAD, you are my living legend. You’re not just a human being, you have a legendary generation enwrapped within your own soul, which I am lucky I am a definite part of. And I am blessed that I have been chosen to live this legacy.
Some people don’t believe in Heroes – well, I don’t blame them, they just haven’t met my DaD!!
