Fathers are wonderful people.


Fathers are wonderful people. We do not sing their praises as often as we should... For, somehow, Father seems to be the man who pays the bills, While Mother binds up little hurts And nurses all our ills...

Father struggles daily To live up to "his image" As protector of the family and perhaps that is the reason We sometimes get the notion, That Fathers are not subject To the thing we call emotion. But if you look inside Dad's heart, Where no one else can see You'll find he's sentimental and as "soft" as he can be...

But he's so busy every day in the grueling race of life, He leaves the sentimental stuff to his partner and his wife...


When I was Four years old:

Friend Subbugaaditho: Maa Nanna emainaa Chestaadu. Super Man, Spider Man, Tippu Sultan, Rajiv Gandhi kante Maa nanna Chaala Great.

When I was Five years old:

Friend Penchal Kumartho: Maa Nannaki Anni Vishayaalu Telusu. A for Apple Ane mana teacher nerpinchindi but maa nanna A for Asia, A for Antartica, A for Australia etc., chaala nerpinchaaru. He is the most intelligent person in this world.

When I was Six years old:

Friend Sandhyatho: Maa Nanna Mee Daddykante great. Maa nanna cycleni mee daddy kante chaala fastgaa drive chestaadu. Maa Nannaki Meesaalu unnayi. Kabatti, Maa Daddyne great…kaadu…greatest in the world.

When I was Ten years old:

Friend Pavantho: Mana nannalaki peddagaa emi teleeduraa…edo aa rojullo puttaru, perigaaru vaari knowledge anthe. Emainaa anthe Maa chinnappudu ani class peekatam tappa emi teleedu. Maname better.

When I was fifteen years old:

Friend Harshatho: Edo chebutaadu maa nanna. Peddagaa pattinchukovaddu. Light teesuko. Maree Old fashioned raa. Ee generation gurinchi emi teleedu.

Harsha: Avunu Raa…Maa Nanna kooda anthe. Ee fathers antha inthe anukuntaa.

When I was twenty two years old:

Friend Ranjittho: Intiki vellalantene chiraaku vasthundi. Vellagaane Maa nanna enti ee time intiki. Ekkada tirigi vachaavu. Lifelo Settle avvavaa? Eppudu Friends Friends ani tiragadam tappa vere panulu undavaa..ani class peekestaadu. Ee rojullo aa maatram late avvadaa bayata tirige vallaki. Artham Chesukodu…

Ranjith: Mee nanna Better raa baabu…Maa nanna directgaa Man handling

When I was twenty five years old:

Friend Visu tho: Mama…Ninna Naa girl friendtho phonelo maatlade timelo maa nanna vachi red handedgaa pattukunnadu and nannu amma naa bhoothulu tittadu. Chi…Chi…intlonchi bayatiki vacheyaali ani anipinchindi. Nenu tine annam, vesukone dress antha aayane konichaarantha. Assalu aa intiki pokoodadu ani decide chesukunna. Amma aapindi. Enduku raa aayanaki nenanthe antha kopam. Andari dads alaane undaru kadaa..friendlygaa untaaru kadaa…

When I was twenty seven years old:

Friend harshatho: Job vachindi kadaa…Offer letter choopinchaanu…ayinaa happygaane ledu…aayana problem entho naaku artham kaavatam ledu. Manam settle ayyamu ante kooda oka smile ledu. Inka nenu depend avvanu kadaa andukosame anukuntaa…

When I was thirty three years old:

Friend Pavantho: “Mama…artham kavatam ledu…naa wifetho ninna pedda arguement ayyindi…endukainaa better ee problem ni oka sari nannatho discuss chesi aayana iche ideas emainaa naaku use avutaayemo choostaanu.

Pavan: “Avunu raa..mee daddy chaala friendly kadaa…so mee dad can give you some good advice anukuntaa raa..”

When I was thirty nine years old:

Friend Anooptho: “Rey..Naa Pillalu assalu naa maata vinatam ledu…edainaa tuitionlo vestamani anukuntunna lekapothe residential schoollo join chestaanu…maa nanna elaa penche vaaro mammalni artham kaavatam ledu…anyway, aayanni okka saari kalisi advice teesukunte endukante aayanaki chaala experience undi kadaa..”

When I was Forty six years old:

Friend Visutho: “Maa Vaadu assalu maata vinatam ledu raa…monna cigarette tagutoo red handedgaa dorikaadu…em chestunnavu ani adigithe mind your business…generation gap neekemi teleedu antunnadu…and pocket money I gave him 3000 rupees and vaadiki adi saripodu anta…vaadiki minimum 6000 kaavaali antunnadu…maa nanna salary monthly 6000 rupees raa…andulone he used to pay rent, nannu maa akkani manchi schoollo join chesaadu. Prathi roju edo okati tinataaniki techevaadu. Yearly maa familyni bayata ooriki teesukoni poyye vaadu. Naaku artham kaavatam ledu how he was managing everything without complaining. Nanna Chaala great raa…”

When I was Fifty years old:

Bharya Sarikatho: “Ento ee pillala college fees kosam savings, intiki EMI’s kattukone sariki mana life ayipoyyindi. Still manaku chaala commitments unnayi. Almost manaki less tomorrows and more yesterdays are left. In this process, nannatho ekkuva time spend cheyyaleka poyyanu and I never appreciated him. I could have learnt a lot from him. I love him.”

So, I just want to avoid all these scenarios. But Fathers are just wonderful In a million different ways, And they merit loving compliments and accolades of praise.

For the only reason Dad aspires to fortune and success is to make the family proud of him
and to bring them happiness.

Some Quotes on Dad:

"The most important thing a dad can do for his children is to love their mother."

"Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad."

"My Dad didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it."

"My dad gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me."

Moral of the Story: No Morals as such. I just want to Thank my Dad ... for listening and caring, for giving and sharing, especially, for just being my dad!
