It would soon be Father’s Day! To girls, their fathers are their superheroes, their supporters, and their best critic too. All their qualities get blended in a way that they come together to form the personality of their children too. Every day could be celebrated as Father’s Day and every moment could be celebrated as the same. It’s because kids are never left unprotected from the care and support of their father.

To celebrate Father’s Day, Shethepeople.TV engaged with some young girls to know about their thoughts on their superheroes. Here is what those joyful girls said.

“I have learned to handle difficult situations from my father. My father has always told me to face the worse of the worst situations like a rock. Along with this, while I was growing up, my father had given me a nugget of advice that has remained intact with me. He says that even if you don’t become the person you want to be in your life, just try to achieve the goal of becoming a good person,” says Lovely Singh, a student of Mass Media from National Rifle Association Institute, New Delhi.

“My Dad not only taught me how to walk but he also taught me how to walk independently. I still remember he was the first person who made me learn how to ride a bike, then a car, and how to withdraw money from an ATM, among other things.

A journey towards independence

“My Dad not only taught me how to walk but he also taught me how to walk independently. I still remember he was the first person who made me learn how to ride a bike, then a car, and how to withdraw money from an ATM, among other things. All these minuscule things play a very important role in my life and I owe it all to my Dad.” said Vasundhara Singh, a student of Kamala Nehru College, Delhi University.

While Samridhi Khandelwal, a student of Kamala Nehru College, Delhi University said, “My Dad is my super-hero and I can go on talking about him for the whole of my life. He taught me the value of a disciplined life. I still remember the time when he used to wake me up at 5 am in the morning. I used to hate him at that time but it’s because of him that today I still maintain a healthy lifestyle. Fathers are just the best gift one can have in their lives.”

A cluster of memories

“Most of my precious moments in my life involves my father, I remember all the situations in a clear crystal manner. The best part of my childhood was that my father never discriminated between my brother and me. On one hand, he taught my brother how to spin the ball and on the other hand he taught me how to hit that spin ball. I didn’t realise it’s importance at that time… but now when I look back, I realise that knowing or unknowingly, he taught me an important lesson: that there’s no difference between me and my brother.” said Divya Tripathi, a student of Kamala Nehru College, Delhi University.

I remember that when I was in 8th standard and I scored low in mathematics. I was frightened about how my parents would react, especially my Dad. When we went to Parents Teachers Meet, I was just standing with my head hanging low outside the room. To my astonishment, my dad came out of the teacher’s office and said, “Wanna eat samosa.” That was the day when I realised he’s not just my dad but he’s also my biggest moral support and my best friend.” 

WhileAyushi Jain, a student of Kamala Nehru College, says, “I have never met someone like my father. He is a very happy-go-lucky persona and very calm and composed too.

The true admirers

Apoorva Dubey, a student of Gargi College, Delhi University, says, “My Dad has tried to instill one thing in my mind which I truly admire now, is that he always asked me to be strong all the time. He said that, even if you are nervous, unwell, or anything, just pretend that there is no one who can handle the situation better than you. I have tried to implement this strategy in my real life and I have realised that it has solved more than half of my problems in just one go.”

While Priya Pathak, a student of Kamala Nehru College, Delhi University, says

“I feel blessed whenever I get to speak about my father. He is amazing. He is well aware of the fact that children should be loved but not to a great extent. I wonder how he is able to get practical and emotional, both at the same time. I can’t complain that he didn’t support me in any kind of situation. But, I also have to accept that the way he had supported me in those situations had some conspiracy theory inside it. And well, all that was always done to make me stronger and independent.”
