It is a day, which celebrates the fatherhood, paternal bonds and the efforts of male parents towards their family and society. The day is meant to recall, recognise and remember the endless efforts, initiatives and contributions of all the fathers around us. Father’s Day is an occasion to honour all the fatherly figures like Stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles or even big brothers.

Some quotations about fathers

“One father is more than a hundred school masters”

“The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams and aspirations he sets, not only for himself but for his family”

“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society”

According to Swami, fathers are responsible for upholding the ideals of justice and truth. Fathers must love, foster, protect and guide all members of their family. The heart of the father who fosters a child and develops his personality is sweet. What Makes a Dad   
God took the strength of a mountain,                          
The majesty of a tree,                                              
The warmth of a summer sun,                               
The calm of a quiet sea,                                          
The generous soul of nature,                                
The comforting arm of night,                                
The wisdom of the ages,                                         
The power of the eagle’s flight,                             
The joy of a morning in spring,                             
The faith of a mustard seed,                                  
The patience of eternity,                               
The depth of a family need,                                    
Then God combined these qualities,                            
When there was nothing more to add,                
He knew His masterpiece was complete,           
And so, He called it … Dad
