A Daughters Ode to Her Dad …

Posted on November 17, 2011. Filed under: Searching for Success |

Grand Finale Pantaloons Femina Miss India Contest (UP);  MB Club, Lucknow.

Now for the Deciding Question. One by one the judges put forward the tricky questions – why do you want to win this pageant? With whom would you like to go on a date? Choice between modelling and acting and between success and riches and the like.

Then one Judge asked a Q which resulted in pin drop silence. He asked Contestant No 4 – “If it is the last day of your life, whom would you want to spend it with and why?”  

Contestant No.4 paused to gather her thought before responding with an answer which brought the House down and gave her a standing ovation! Here is what she said –

“A Father has a prime role to play in the life of his daughter. He is the first male that a girl comes across and hence, becomes the role model of her life. She sees the reflection of men in the rest of the world, through her dad and often perceives that all men should be like her father.

Right from her childhood to adolescence to adulthood, he plays an influential role in her life. He is the guide, the saviour, the protector, a friend and most importantly, the ultimate caretaker, who nourishes her in the loving and protective atmosphere set by him.

I have seen my daddy assuming multi-faceted roles, which keep changing with the changing phases of my life.

I would like to dedicate the last day of my life to my Father, and those 24 hours I would want to spend in his company!”

And was’nt it Goethe who said, “Girls we love for what they are; young men for what they promise to be”.
