Well it's absolutely true my dad my hero !!!
I want to tribute my this write up for my superhero my dad!!!
Umesh Chandra Srivastava may b just a name or some relation for others who knew him as son, brother, chacha, mama, mausa, jijaji or a friend but for us he is still our lifeline to survive every day with his teaching!!
He was always a good son , husband, brother ,friend but he was a greatest dad. He has given us best upbringing...
He got 4 daughters and never regret for that ... I still remember when some relative came and said "Beti ho par Beta ban kar khayal rakhna " papa you was there to correct him and said " yeh beta nahi meri Beti hai aur Mujhe garv hai ki meri Beti hai ... Yeh 1 Beti meri 10 Beto se lakh guna behtar hai ... You said "Ruchi I am proud that you are my daughter n you proud yourself being a girl " thanks papa for never making us realize that we don't have any identity. Thanks and sorry words are beyond what we feel it's much more than that .. you made me to feel proud of being a daughter n a girl child.
Only daughters and giving everyone best education and never regretted that he got daughters!!
He invested his all hard earnings in our education and believed in us ...
He was a mentor , he was one guiding source for me he was solution for every problem!!
But God decided something else for us and in 2004 he got brain hamrage and paralysis attack and for 7 long years went on bed .., but he never left us alone in any situation even in bad n tough times when sometimes relatives and all left us alone he stood like big pillar of strength and made us believe that nothing is going to be wrong as long as we are correct...he was strongest person who survived on first attack for 12 hours without proper medical treatment with his will power.
He always said " If you believe you can .. Only then you can "
From emotionally, mentally, financially he never left us alone ...he was always there standing right with us.
But as says "अच्छाई की ज़रूरत सब को होती है " and may be God too need and must be he needed more so in 2010 he called him and made him a star to shine up there and give us endless light
Papa we love u, Papa we miss u,
You must be listening to us,
and we promise...
we will follow & carry your dreams, your teaching & your values
Papa but still I need you today, tomorrow everyday!!
