There’s nothing in this world which gives me more satisfaction and pride than to see my daughter grow.
From the day, I held her in my arms for the first time till now, the feeling of pride has only grown and will continue to grow. We share a special bond which keeps on getting strong as the days go by. I had always wanted a girl even before my marriage. The father-daughter relationships around me made this desire even stronger. Hence when my wife was pregnant, I was hoping for a girl for our first child.
There were complications due to which, I and my wife were stressed throughout the pregnancy as she was not growing at the desired pace. When she was delivered and doctors put her in my arms, tears rolled down my eyes and I felt it was all worth it. She was tiny and weighed less but for me at that point in time, she was the whole world. As I carried her whole night singing and trying to make her sleep, it gave me a tremendous amount of satisfaction and happiness.
Though how I felt is difficult to express in words, I wrote the following lines when she was only 5 and they perfectly describe my feelings.
मुश्किलें इस कदर आई कि जीना आसान कर गई
खुशियां इतनी मिली कि मुझे परेशान कर गई
उम्र गुजर गई सारी, कोशिश में इंसान बनने की
वो मेरी गोद में आकर मुझे भगवान कर गई
मुझे क्या लेना ऊपर वाले से
मैं अपना खुदा खुद आप हूं
बस इतनी पहचान काफी है मेरी
कि मैं अपनी बेटी का बाप हूं।
Today she’s 11 years old and already surpassing her mother in hard work & compassion and her father in intelligence, my pride in her keeps on growing with each day and I can strongly say that having a daughter is the best thing that can happen to a man.
