Beloved Prathana,

This is a reply to your letter published in Chitralekha direct from the heart of a Father, uncensored.
  1. All parents love their children equally, I am no exception. Here in our case, all four daughters are just the same whatever you feel.
  2. In spite of your step of marrying a person not approved by me, you always remain my daughter. My love for you is just the same as it was ever, whether you agree or not.
  3. In fact, I love all the daughters of your age and bless them for their best of luck. Believe me, I have experienced that being nicely reciprocated by all.
  4. You claim to love me than what stops you from coming to me, why do you not write a single letter or contact me by telephone, mobile or internet. I am always ready to accept you as you are with the same love as ever.
  5. I have no ill-feeling for you. Let us forget the past, both of us were wrong somewhere. Let us remain Daughter-Father as we are always so.
With all my love and blessings,

Pappa

  3. My eyes are wet... Just a suggestion if not already implemented, why can't father approach the daughter if he loves her so much instead of waiting for the daughter?

  4. Fuaji, I love the content of this post. It reminds me of this very famous book in Gujarati: Dikri vahal no Dariyo.

      In fact,parents-daughter relations are egoless ones.Parents are always ready to forgive and forget. At the time of daughters' marriage at undesired place, they sometimes over-react. It is here that daughter has to be little more egoless or the situation worsens.Well, at a later date, nothing matters and everything is settled.

Dawood Ibrahim - A Journey From Dongri To Karachi, Via Dubai

One of the recent off-bit topics I’ve read, this one book about ‘Mumbai Mafia’ has been the most interesting, well-researched and well-written. Here is an excerpt from Dawood Ibrahim's journey from “Dongri to Dubai”, and the six decades of Mumbai mafia.

Anavils - Endangered Species Among Human

After Parsis, Anavils (Anavil Brahmins, અનાવિલ બ્રાહ્મણ ) are the fastest decreasing community. The total population of Anavils around the world does not exceed two lakhs figure and that is also fast reducing day by day. Days are not far, beyond a century or so, when they will have to be seen/found in records, photos and videos. Why?


Because,
   - they get married too late,    - many are dying unmarried,    - they wait for the career to be settled before the first (and maybe the only) childbirth.
