Everytime we say goodbye

It's tough having your heart broken every day. It's tougher when you are just a year and a half, trying to understand why your father drops you off at a strange place each day. You know you can't do anything about it, you know your parents need to get to work on time, you know it, it happens every day.

So you don't create a fuss, you don't yell and scream, you don't puke all over the vehicle like your father did when he was three times your age and dragged to school. You just gather up all the courage in your tiny little heart and wish your father goodbye. You can't stop the downturned lips and the look in your eyes, though. And you just cannot stop the break in your voice each time you say goodbye.

  7. Am sure it gets really difficult to raise a kid when you are in the rat race. Give her a few hugs from our side
    *hugs*

  8. My uncle (maternal) has to shuttle between Italy and Gurgaon frequently. His 2yr old daughter Nihar is quite insecure. Everytime he leaves home, she fears he will be gone for days again and very sweetly but desperately tries to stop him by saying things like "Tu matt jaa. Aaj meri tabiyat kharab hai." You are a lucky father, Madhav.

  11. Pretty strong for a one and a half year old. Kudos.

    And since nobody seems to be hugging you, take two from me, one for her, and one for you. :P

  12. That' so touching. And to think that it was just yesterday when I asked how good a father you were. Got my answer now.

  13. I spent K.G in Kollam and one of my most vivid memories was my fav. Uncle enticing me with a ride (going dubs) on his cycle with Mundu and all. As soon as we reached the road to K.G perdition, I knew I'd been duped one more time.
