Paa’s Favorite – Puliyogre

I could start this post by thanking you for multiple things. Such as the roof over my head or the food you place on the table but somehow when I sit back and think about how truly thankful I am to have you as my father those things barely scratch the surface. What I really want to thank you for are the countless times you carried me on your shoulders even when I was getting too big to be up there.

You forgive my faults and only encourage my strengths. You are so proud of me and your confidence in me reminds me that I am meant for greater! Every day I know how much you love me! Especially those photo sessions that you did for both of us from day 1! Every time we are together you just pick up your camera  and  the shoot begins….that’s the precious gift you gave us –“our childhood captured in beautiful way”…I still cherish those days looking on those excellent photographs taken by you. Thanks a lot paa.

 It has been said that “the most important thing a father can do for his children, is to love their mother.”  You have been the greatest example of this!  Your love and care for our family shines brightly through you!  You always have shown me love and set an example for me on how to treat people. Through you I have learnt how it feels when you help someone, yes! the smile on their face gives us immense joy and  satisfaction.

I know I still have much to learn, but I have begun to see, How blessed I am with a Father who has loved and corrected me. Thank you for the life and legacy that you’ve given me! Paa, you’re the greatest. It’s not just because you’re there for me through good times and bad. It’s also because you make the bad times good with your amazing love and support.

Always remember, no matter where I am or how old I get, I will always love you.

Happy Father’s Day Paa !

Mumma’s Special – Tehri

Every year I can never feel like I’ve given back enough to this amazing woman, and the older I get the more I see how outstanding she truly is. Every child and adult that has been so lucky to have a wonderful parent in their life will say things such as “Best Maa IN the WORLD” and I wish that there was something more outstanding to say, but here’s a letter that will help me share how amazing this woman truly is…We meet different people in the journey of life making a difference to our lives, but there is a special someone who inspires us by giving us some precious insights. Apart from GOD, there are some angels who truly keep guiding us, the special ones whom we are blessed to find correcting us in our daily lives.

To the one who have been working harder day and night to take care of us, here is a token of my love to Our Angel Mumma for having gifted us love in abundance.

She gifted me the keys to unlock life’s useful guidelines; she is the medium who teach me ways to connect to divinity more closely at all times.

She is not just a mother but also a guide, a friend who could answer my queries. She believed in all the work I did by showing immense faith in me and my capabilities. If there is any way that I could offer my love to her, it’s only by walking on the glorious godly and loving path that she taught me since my teens when I met her.

She is a beautiful person in the lives of each one of us, youngsters as well as elders, an epitome of humility, sincerity, love and a true mother chosen by Bhagwan.

Maa Even at the worst of times, just a hug from you makes me feel calm but seriously, thanks for always being there for me and for always having the door open for me whenever I need to come home.

I just wish you all of the happiness in the world, because there is not enough love and happiness in existence to give you all you truly deserve.

Happy Mother’s Day Maa.
