At the young age everyone has got a hero in their mind. He may be a cricketer or a film star or some famous personality whom we come across through the media. When we grow older and older our heroes keep on changing. One time we would have liked Ganguly and later shifted to Dhoni.
From our tender age we have our parents taking care of us. Our mother keeps on insisting us to get up early and study, get ready to go to school, eat vegetables which we don’t like. She pours love at the same time while she is very strict. What about our father’s role? Yes, he is the saviour of all children. When mother raises her hand there comes father to the rescue. In between his busy work schedule he takes us to school, to shops, bank, post office, park cinema etc. We are being introduced to every possible part of the world by our father. He teaches us how to handle the good and bad, where to go and where not to go, the positive and negative in each part of life. He protects us but never compels us.
Now crossing the teenage part of our life, our father becomes our friend and as years go by he becomes our real hero in our life. The path shown by our father sticks into the mind. For every child, especially for a girl child, her father becomes a great hero. When she is getting ready to lead a married life, she starts comparing the groom with her father. Do he have patience like my father? Will he take care like my father?
There may be hundreds of people for advice but in the hour of difficulty we blindly follow our father’s advice. He is our ultimate HERO.
‘I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.’- Sigmund Freud.
