Today is father’s birthday. He would have been 73 years old today.  It’s the fourteenth year since he passed away. We are no longer able to hug him on his birthday and wish him like we used to do. But his presence is still strong in our lives.

We are fortunate to have had a father who led us by example. He set the highest standards of integrity and honesty for us to follow, he was generous and giving, almost to a fault, he was well read and knowledgeable on almost any subject and he encouraged us in whatever we chose to do.

He had four daughters and a son to deal with. We were all allowed and encouraged to follow our dreams, thanks to which we are all standing tall today, in our chosen fields. I know whatever I have archived in my life is because of his guidance and encouragement and my siblings will no doubt agree.

Happy Birthday, Thattha. We miss you and count our blessings for being fortunate to have been your children.

  1. Thank you Akka for putting It down in writing. Thatta is missed today and everyday, and will be in our hearts until we are no more. Glad he had 5 of us for thanks to him, we have each other. Hope the events to mark Thatta’s birthday went off well. May his soul continue to rest in peace.
