Yesterday was Fathers day, a day to celebrate the quiet contribution of the hero. Just a note for all the fathers and mothers too.
When a daughter gets married, the father gives everything that his daughter needs to lead a life in her new house. Dresses, jewelry, cosmetics, bed, wardrobes, beddings, AC, television and so on.. sometimes when the in-laws demand and also when they don't demand anything.
But what is the most precious thing that a father gives away? His beloved daughter. A part of the soul of both father and mother. They give away the life they have created, the body they have nourished with all the love all along their life. Is that not enough?
Can't the parents-in-law respect this big sacrifice and welcome their daughter-in -law with open arms? Can't they buy the new gifts for their new daughter instead of begging from her father? Can't they become her own father and mother?
Any day will be a father's day when a girl will stop her father from giving dowry, any day will be a father's day when a man doesn't take a single penny from his father-in-law because he has respect for his own father. Any day will be truly a father's day when a father-in-law will love his daughter-in-law more than his own son.
Until then it will be only a business for archies and flipkart.
