Whenever people ask me about my relationship with my dad, I always tell them that we have shared a normal parent child relationship, the only difference is I am the parent and he is the child. I have been a bossy, strict daughter ever since I was a toddler. I am the over protective parent and he is the rebel child.

In spite of his busy schedule, he made sure he was around to listen to our everyday issues. When I was a child he was around to tell me stories and when I was a teenager he was there to listen to my stories about exam stress.

 

Appa is a feminist and has always told me that it is very important for a woman to  have a successful career and that I should work very hard. He is an atheist but he never forced atheism on me. I was free to follow any religion. I don’t follow any religion. Dad made sure that I was always involved in his career. 

He started narrating scripts to me when I was 10 years old. I am lucky to have a father who loves me unconditionally,  without restrictions or demands. He has always believed in my strength and respected the fact that I wanted to be financially independent. That is the best gift he can give me.
