I offer my obeisance to you Rev. Sri. Sri. Om Swamiji🙏wishing you good health, peace and much love🙏🕉

The photograph above holds a very special place in my heart and today I could not stop penning a few lines on the same.

Little did I realise I would find my father back in the form of Karan — my exceptionally loving son, a compassionate brother, a wonderful husband, a warm-hearted caring Doctor, a simple human being and above all the best dad to his sweet little daughter, Reya.

Childhood Memories…

I still remember Karan’s fascination for cars when he was barely three years of age. He just loved these little Hotwheels cars. Those were the days when I could hardly afford anything fancy for him and a content child that he was, never ever troubled me to buy it for him.

And this one fine day, I did manage to buy and surprise him with the miniature car and you could imagine his joy.

He would carry it with him at all times, whenever he got back from school. He would quietly keep playing with it everywhere and anywhere right from the table, to the bed onto his duvet and pillow, eyes intensely glued to the mini wheels noticing its mysterious movements as to how it rolled and seemed like he was seriously driving it. He would eventually even go to sleep keeping it next to his pillow.

In early teens, his passion grew to buying Autocar magazines, studying every little detail of different models of cars, and writing great reviews on them.

A small-town boy he grew up working hard to become the topper in school, ended up in the UK all by his own hard work and his hard-earned money at a very young age, to excelling extremely in college where his sheer dedication and performance in academics always drew praises from his teachers and professors. He finally made his dream come true when he chose to get into the noblest profession and to making it big in his university, to becoming a Doctor.

Equally passionate about reading various subjects related to different cultures of the world, philosophy, works of fiction and spiritual genre; he is also an exceptional writer (started writing when he was barely 13 years of age) and also carries within him a fine taste of arts.

The best thing that I, as a mother, learn from him even today is his persistent spirit to self-coaching each day to maintain calm and balance in every given situation. He makes sure to keep challenging his own abilities and that truly surprises me. Love you my bacha 😚 Miss your hugs.

What also gives him immense gratification is when he lends his time to all the patients he attends to (almost 40 patients every day) with immense patience and compassion. Serving others keeps him grounded he says.

Fatherhood… He in the Role of Dad:

The picture above speaks volumes of a treasured endearing ritual with his little daughter. Together, this father-daughter pair enjoys and have a fun time, from hiking a trail and skipping on rocks outside, to enjoying the sea waters and sitting down making sand castles at the beach , to jumping in the puddles during rains, to cooking her favourite dish, feeding her with his hands and enjoying all sorts of cute moments. He makes her laugh, encourages his little one to ask him all of the questions she is brimming with. He even reads bedtime stories to her. Most importantly, he always lets her know just how much he loves her by giving her warm teddy hugs. Even though he drives in his fancy cars now (his achievements have only humbled him even more), he has not forgotten to gift sets of the Hotwheels cars to his little one.

Having a Father is Such a Blessing!”
