He is the person who asks you to smile when you fall down from the bicycle the first time and surely he is the one who asks you not to drive the bike beyond the speed of 60 km/hr when you grow older. In themselves, our father and mother comprise of a whole world for us. And, it was with the aim of honoring the great man that we call dad that the holiday of ‘Fathers Day‘ came into being.
