“A son is a son till he gets himself a wife but a daughter is a daughter all her life“.We all must have heard this endless times.I actually started understanding it after i got married.Earlier it was just a part of a song from kareena kapoors movie.yes!!.That is true.You have no idea how embarrassed i am right now.Anyway,now when i understand it,it makes so much sense and fits into every newly married girls life.
Adjusting in my new married life,my in-laws,my husband,new home,made me feel that every father in the world should have a daughter.To basically understand what another dad feels like.To actually think before taking any step and realising that this girl too is someones daughter.A father daughter relationship is one of its kind.My father has been the coolest person ever,I was closer to him than my mother.Imagine i used to call him and inform that i was bunking college that day and he used to just laugh it off.
The weird feeling sank in after I got married and i had to take permission to go and meet my father,the newly weds do that.There was this constant battle in my heart and mind that” why the hell do i need permission to go to my own house and meet me own father“.That is when i felt every man,a father should have a daughter in order to understand his wife and then maybe his daughter in law.And now when i have a daughter i knew i was right.I see a completely changed man.Now i often make him realise now you know how my parents felt when they would wait for me to come home and you just cancelled plans not realising how big of a deal it was for me.Would you be able to take it if your daughter went through the same?
Even though I have been very lucky in this phase of life but not everyone is.We all know someone who is fighting a constant battle everyday,every minute.Imagine if both a daughter and a father have to think twice to meet each other,imagine how a father would feel when he is no longer the number one man in her life.Imagine how a father would feel if he comes to know his daughter is sad or depressed.
Respect your wife ,your mother.Both of them have left their homes to make a home for you,your father.T hough she is a mom,a wife,a mother now,but she still is her father’s daughter too.
