Out of all the men in the world, daughters always say “Fathers are the sweetest”. When I think of my childhood, the first memory I cherish till date is as to how my dad persuaded me to be strong. He wanted me to be a very strong girl. So when I was four-year-old, I broke a bone in my thumb finger and it gave me a lot of trouble. The doctors said that there was some minor distortion internally and it must get operated to get better. Upon hearing this, I reckon my daddy must have lost all his good senses.

​Everyone knows how childish men suddenly become after they become fathers to daughters; my father very well epitomized this. It was hard for him to decide what to do. To let his little daughter know the smell of medicines and the pain of toxins, Nah... One day when I went to him complaining about the pain in the thumb finger, he gently made me sit on his lap before saying “Sweetheart, the more you pay attention to the pain, the stronger it would become. So stop thinking about it and one day it will leave you.”
