A FATHER. Who is this person that we call "father"? A father is a hero in every child’s life. For most of us, our father is our role model.

This is my story. It is about my beloved dad. He has always been there for me through all my ups and downs and he never gave up on me regardless of all the disappointment he had to go through.

For the very first time in my life at the age of 16, I had to live apart from my father. He was posted to another state for a job. That was when I truly realised the importance of a father in a child's life. It has now been 6 years since we ever lived together under one roof for a long period of time, but my love for him remains strong.

Watching him sacrifice for the family and to support my studies drives me to study harder. Nothing makes a father more proud than to see his hard-earned money well spent when he sees his children do well at school. Even when he was sick, he still forced himself out from bed to go to work so that we can have food on our table, a roof over our heads and that can go to school.

It does not stop here. He did not just work hard to support our basic needs but also to provide us with luxury items such as laptops, mobile phones, television and more so that we can fit in into modern day's society.

I simply cannot imagine how my dad works under the scorching sun without even complaining about the heat, whereas I cannot even stay a short while without the air-conditioner. My dad gladly accepts whatever food that is available around the area regardless of whether it is tasty or not, whereas I can only live on food items that are good enough for my taste buds. Also, even when his health is deteriorating, he never once complained and used it as an excuse to stop working, but continued to strive for his family so that his children's dreams can come true.

The list of how I admire my dad is endless. Yet, I can only say this much, "I love you Naina (
Telugu translation: Father). Thank you so much for everything."

Happy Father's Day to all fathers around the world. Continue to be the superhero you all always were.
