On all those days…

“My daddy strongest!!!” Tagline of a cooking oil advertisement that used to be one of my favourite advertisements back in the 90’s… I would run from any corner of the house to the tv so as to not miss it… not to mention if papa happened to be around at that time too, he would get a very high decibel version of the tagline along with a few extra squeezes from me as a bonus…

Can’t believe a lifetime has gone by since I last yelled and shrieked that line… and if there’s one thing that I’ve learnt in all of my 27 years, it is to never trust anyone who says “I can’t live without you”… as figurative as it is, it still is a very strong commitment to make… losing papa has been the worst thing to have ever happened to me and not getting to talk to him the one last time, my biggest regret..

Who knew that the three women whose world revolved around him could actually live without him! But they sure did and how.. we may not say it everyday but…

On all those days when i didn’t think of u, I’ve missed you

On all those days when mom couldn’t sleep coz I came home late, I’ve missed you

On all those days when I watched mom fix the bulb and cook the meals, I’ve missed you

On all those days when Di feared leaving mom and me alone in the country, I’ve missed you

On all those days when I had to choose a career away from mom, I’ve missed you

On all those days when life happened, I’ve missed you
