Amazing qualities of my father...

As this is my first blog I thought it would be appropriate to begin with this topic as my father is the person I have always thought the reason for whom I am today.He is the sculpter of my characters.

He is a person who is still admired by his ex-collegues and is a great human being who lives a diciplined and principled life. He never forgets or finds reasons to say that he could not do his regular morning prayers or exercise routine. A very active person who always looks at the positive side of anyone whom he meets. Egoless simple person who is always friendly and tries to do whatever help he can to others without any expectation.

His hard work and dedication led him cross all hurdles and is blessed to have retired as a prestigeous Indian Postal Services(IPS) officer, who always was the most sought after person by all his superiors and subordinates. His love for his brothers, sister and even cousins cannot be explained in words. Always calls me by his sister's name and vice versa.Such is his love for both of us.I have never heard him talking ill about others or even feel bad when a situation of such a sort arise.

I have not seen him have time for attending bhajans or discourses though is a devotee of Sai baba, but he practices what is being preached by Bhagawath Geetha and Baba . This reminds me of the day we had been to Putta parthi where he was one among those two or three who were personally blessed by Baba in a very big gathering of devotees.

His care for children cannot be explained in words. He is always there for me to share anything that I come across no matter good or bad. Always advises me to increase reading habbit and wants me to be a knowledgable person in life. I hardly remember him shouting at me. I was not restricted or questioned regarding money which I used to have, as his brought up was such that he knew for sure that I would not spend extravagantly. There used to be times during which I would retain the balance of amount from shopping and give that when need arises. It was like I was managing the household expenses at a very young age. He had trusted me ,gave me independance in what ever I felt like doing.He found me a perfect life partner and I am sure he is a happy man today for having got a good son-in-law.I doubt if I can be a good parent like how he is. I feel proud to be his daughter and want to adopt all his good qualities in life. I donot look at him as a daughter longing for being pampered but feel blessed to have got such a noble ,caring person as my father.
