Dad – An Unsung Hero

Written By Sakshi Talreja (Grade 10)


Isn’t it crazy how a father sacrifices his dreams, just to make his children’s dreams come true? Here is my story…

I don’t like my dad…

For coming home late, I don’t like him…

For being there for the relatives more than with me, I don’t like him…

For waking me up early morning, I don’t like him…

Telling me only to study, I don’t like him…

Telling me to be the perfect daughter, I don’t like him…

Telling me that you have to forget that matter, I don’t like him…

Telling me not cry on silly things, I don’t like him…

Telling me to work without breaks, I don’t like him…

I understand his dreams and pressure he had. I understand he sacrificed. I understand his childhood was difficult. I understand he wants me to be the best. I understand he wants me to be better than the rest.

I don’t like him.

I love him…

For coming home late, but not forgetting to bring my favourite flavour ice cream, I love him…

For fixing those relatives who taunt me, I love him…

For telling me to study and making me independent, I love him…

For always telling I’m his perfect daughter no matter what, I love him…

For telling me to forget that matter and move on, I love him…

For telling me to be strong, , I love him…

For telling me to never give up, I love him…

It’s not Father’s Day, it’s not his birthday. But still, I want to say thank you. Thank you for being there with me. If a man can spend his life working hard for me. I can spend 5 minutes every day to thanking him.

No days are enough to thank a father. But still Thank you Papa…

“I don’t need a Prince to be a Princess, I’m a princess cause my dad is my King.”
