Father’s Day is one of those special occasions when no matter how busy a person is, they take out time for their fathers and go that extra mile to make their dads feel special. Each child has a bucket of memories with their father and each memory holds a significant lesson for them. With just a day away from Father’s Day 2017, we’ve got a list of lessons that the likes of Richa Chadha, Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Ali Fazal and Saqib Saleem learned from their respective dads.
Richa Chadha: I learned to pursue excellence and quality rather than quantity from my father. He wanted me to get good grades, but all the same, let us enjoy our childhood with several extracurricular activities as well. He supported me whole heartedly when I told him I want to be an actor. I think i choose good content because of my parents.
Taapsee Pannu: The sense of responsibility, clarity and how well organized he is. I learned that u need to take the onus of your life and take responsibility on your own shoulders as soon as possible. The way he is so clear and organized with the things he does is inspirational. I think my clarity of thought is all thanks to him.
Ali Fazal: My father always had a habit of making sure everyone got cards even if it wasn’t a festival or an occasion that called for it. I learned the art of writing postcards and letters from him. I’ve barely spent time with my father in the years I’ve lived. So I cherish the few where he tried his best to teach me things – the short versions compressed in school holidays when I’d visit him. I’ll never forget the effect that a personalized card has. You can’t achieve that with emails and fonts on the web.
Saqib Saleem: One thing that my father always told me that there is nobody like you, always believe in yourself what you can do nobody else can. So I think that’s what I live by, I completely believe in myself, I believe what I am here for only I can do and nobody else. One more thing he said never be afraid of competition it will only make you better and always be happy in other people’s success more than yours.
