daughter dearest

straight from the heart
today is daughter's day. as many proud parents have mentioned it is a treat to have a daughter (bangalore times). i would like to add a different angle to the issue. most fathers like me get a humbling effect through our daughters. the strict father figure takes a beating and what emerges is a more understanding and holistic father. our whole take on the other gender undergoes a sea change. suffice it to say that every man should become a father to a daughter for the world to be a better place. later

"every man should become a father to a daughter for the world to be a better place" I dont think i have ever heard that before.

But i do know that every girl should grow up with a father, preferably like mine.
