For Mom & Dad, With Love!

The Best People In The World - My Mom & Dad

The Best People In The World – My Mom & Dad

This life that we have, no matter how deep a shit we might be in at the moment, is the most beautiful gift we can ever have. People come and go, situations change but the basic truth remains, Life goes on. And in this never ending cycle of events, there are these one set of people who will stay with you, guide you, protect you and shower over you that unconditional love, forever and ever, Our very own Parents.
Some one rightly said, God can’t be every where so He made mothers. And its indeed so. A mother is perhaps the only species in the world that thinks from the heart and heart only. She took the pain of carrying you within her, for 9 long months and though the doctor may have cut the umbilical chord at the time of the birth, but the connection with her child remains well intact all throughout her life span. She is one person who can actually die for you, just to see you happy and successful.
Similarly for the ‘Fathers’. If you ask me, every time I am in front of my Dad, I try to impress him. He is like my idol, the only person in the world I actually look up to. My Dad has taught me some of the biggest lessons in life. The virtue of patience and humility being numero uno. I wish I could inherit even a small bit of his nature and abilities, I would consider myself an accomplished person.
I cherish being with my parents more than ever now. When I was a kid, just about to go to school, I had to live at my maternal grandparent’s place due to some safety issues since my Dad was posted in Bihar then and kidnapping cases in Bihar were very common. My Dad being on a high post in Education Department, couldn’t risk it and plus there were hardly any good schools around. So I had to stay with my Nani, Nana, Mama, Mami, cousins. Not that I had a bad childhood, my Nani and Nana are probably the best people in the world, but yes, I did miss growing up with my own parents.
It almost took me 20 years to realize their true value. In 2010 when I was diagnosed with cancer, after completing the first year of my graduation, my mom and my brother left everything else and stayed with me for 7 long months in Gurgaon while I was under going treatment. Dad used to be their in the weekends and trust me, it might sound crazy to you all, but those were the best days of my life. I might have been dying then, but I never felt better.
Though they were in a lot of pain then. They never let me know about their agony, but I could see it in their eyes, how much they loved me and couldn’t see me in a state like that. It is for their love and care that I am alive today. I wouldn’t have survived it otherwise. My life really changed from that point onwards. I was like any teenager before, confused, with no set goals in life, fascinated by alcohol, girls, late night parties. These 7 months changed my outlook towards life. I now seek the goal in my life which is to make my parents happy by being a successful person. I have given them enough reason to worry for long, its now time for me to pay back. They have given me this beautiful life, and I have now dedicated it to their happiness. I have promised myself to work real hard and make their dreams come true.
Some day they will have no reasons to complain, someday they will be proud of me, for being their son. And that someday is going to be very very soon! Amen!
