Fathers, like mothers, are pillars in the development of a child’s emotional well-being. Children look to their fathers to lay down the rules and enforce them. They also look to their fathers to provide a feeling of security, both physical and emotional.
Fathers might not be great at expressing their love, but we all know that their love is beyond definition. But somewhere, as we grow up, keeping ourselves busy with stuff which we thought had greater importance than family, we forget to spend time with our fathers who gave us everything, even beyond that. It is sad to know that we learn to value certain things only when they are gone.
Majority of the kids are lucky enough to have their fathers presence around them while growing up. But, there are also kids who get to see their father only once in a while, hence having their father around, especially on special occasions like Birthdays is no less than a luxury. These are the kids whose fathers are busy protecting our country – guarding borders, posted miles away from their family, army men survive the harshest conditions. Yes, they are Fauji Brats.
And often, at the cost of missing out on precious moments that they might never witness again. While leaving all that matters to them behind, they head out to protect our country.
Fauji fathers are the bravest father- both physically and emotionally. For them, duty comes first and rest is all secondary. To have such great commitment towards their motherland and to be able to detach themselves from the family they love the most is the bravest thing any person could do.
On this Father’s day we remember all the brave Fauji dads who could not be home, we love you and are proud of you. We miss you but we equally know the importance of your duty, sending lots of love to you.
The army is a profession where you have to sideline everything else for the country, and we are proud of all such brave fathers for pulling it off so well.
A heartfelt Happy Fathers’ day to all the brave men out there. Thank you for guarding our country, and keeping us all safe.
