Dear Dad,
I know I am not the best daughter in the world, but you are still the best dad ever. I want to thank you for picking me up whenever I fell. For even when there was whole family, you were the only one who stood beside me. For all your activities were always centered around my goals and dreams. For always being able to see my dream and live it with me. For believing that I was right and the world was wrong.
I want to thank you for being the Santa not only on Christmas but everyday, whenever I demanded something.
I know I couldn’t be there for you the way you were for me every single time, but I promise to always be by your side.
I want to Thank you for all this and more. Because you’re the best dad in the world.

Happy Father’s day daddy. I love u.

The note

After all those years of being a single mother and working 15 hours a day, she once sat there looking at the sun set, holding the note which told her the truth she never listened,

“Dear future me,
Please don’t go back to him. He doesn’t love you and will cheat on you again.
You can do better alone. Do not give up on your dreams cuz of him.”

She should never have given up on her dreams. He made her quit everything she loved, gave her a daughter to look after and left her alone. But she still had faith he will come back one day.

Imagination

Have you ever thought, what you are seeing now can be a dream and when you are dreaming can be reality.

Just imagine one morning waking up and opening your door and your house is flying like “UP”

Have you ever imagined, your mum, your dad, siblings and cousins and everyone that’s related to you, all of them are just paid actors. They are all acting and you are in a big prank TV show and someday they’re all gonna laugh at you and you would have to laugh with them.
Your best friend or sister you share your secreats with is just playing you. Your mum and dad. Yeah, I know this all’s nonsense but, there is a possibility.

Well, I know you’ve atleast imagined about aliens. What if these aliens were our masters and all these TV actors worked for these aliens. What then?

Imagine every book in this world that crosses your eye is just written to catch your attaintion. Even all the TV shows and movies.

Okay think about this, what is sky actully falls someday like in the rabbit story and it happens that aliens were jumping on the sky so it fell.

Well, what if this whole world was just in a tiny little flower. I remember seeing a movie in which this stuff was shown ( I don’t remember the name ). They said there was another world in a speck of flower and only an elephant could here them. What if there’s a world in every flower?
How many flowers have you plucked yet? What if an alien would pluck the flower named earth?

What if the sea animals lived on land and mammals lived in sea. Imagine the sea life. And one day a shark will come fishing for humans. ( well you can’t call it fishing then I guess, or maybe you can? ). Remember sponge Bob? What if any of that is true?

Imagine all the Disney cartoons to be true. Cinderella, snow white, little mermaid. What if there actully exists a Doraemon with anywhere doors and all those cool gadgets?

Sorry if I bored you but What if any of this is true?

A visit

My dad is engaged with social work. There’s a foundation called “Paramhans Swami Lilashah Foundation” which helps the poor and needy people for improving their standard of living. This foundation helps people in every way it can. It raises funds from the richer sections and passes on to the poor in the form they need. They provide children with books and school fees and also food grains to families every month.

So tonight, dad asked me to come with him to visit one of these people and give them money. Dad described them on the way.
This family had 7 members in all. A husband who recently was detected with throat cancer, a wife who was busy to keep the whole family together and meet ends, 4 daughters and a son.
The father woke up at 4:30 in the morning. Gets ready to catch the 6 AM local train to Rajkot and reaches there at 8:30. He has appointment with local doctors who offer free treatments under some Government schemes. The treatment is free but the transportation charges take almost 30% of their income.
So they had asked for Rs. 3000 from the foundation. When we went there today to give them the pay, the wife was not home. She took her daughter who was 19 to Ahmedabad. Recently the daughter suffered from a chronic elbow pain in one of her hands and couldn’t bear it. The doctors in this small town couldn’t detect what was wrong.

When we gave them the money, they thanked us and said that they were so much in need of that amount. It was the first time I had been in this work. I had a look around their house, the ceiling was falling apart and the the plasters were ripped off. I tried to talk to the youngest of daughters. She said she had just passed her 10th class with good grades and was willing to do something in science stream. This was something amazing.

I came home and I had to share this with everyone who has time to read this. All I know is that I am always complaining about stuff I don’t have to my dad and mom. But looking down at someone, makes me feel more vulnerable. I think everyone in this world deserves a healthy and happy life style.

Today I feel much more greatful for my belongings than I ever in my life have. I just pray for all the souls in need out there and hope to help them in my best possible ways.
