On Father's Day

On Father’s Day I too want to give you a gift My Son
To Manas
who is a young Power Engineer


On Father’s Day I too want to give you a gift My Son
A legacy of determinations and desires
Of living in Happiness in every situation of life.
The highest goals of life can only be achieved 
By those who believe in converting every struggle
A stair to rise up more in life.

Problems and difficulties of life my son
Are blessings of God to put you on stride.
Failures too are meant to make your efforts
More shining and meaningful for your life.

If you want to rise-up high in the sky
You will have to dive deep in your life,
If you want to touch the lofty heights
Never forget the ground
From where you got your first light.

Producing light and giving it to others, 
Is not an ordinary work of life, My son,
With this feeling, if you comply your works
The glory of doing something for a noble cause
Would give you the wealth of Happiness throughout your Life.

    Dear Ravindra, this is a very touching tribute for your son and filled with good advice. Indeed, God does put obstacles in our path so we can overcome them and grow from the experiences. Words of wisdom, my friend! Love, Carolyn

    "If you want to rise-up high in the sky You will have to dive deep in your life, If you want to touch the lofty heights Never forget the ground" Such cool words you have left for someone who will no doubt soak in! WOW!

    All through reading I was smiling but covered with goosebumps and a lump in my throat. An exquisite gift to your son, Ravindra. :))

    For you I think, father's Day is every day as you have constantly paying tributes to your father by translating his work, a nice legacy

    Thanks for your kind comments Linda. Manas is yet to get married. I would invite my friends on PS, when we find a suitable match for him or he informs his own choice. ...With best wishes..Ravindra
