Dad, you are my inspiration and who I am today, You always had cheerful evening with your friends! Greeted people who crossed you every day! You have built an empire around you You are a King and you lived like a King… No matter what it’s, you take that with ease… Extended your small support whomsoever they are! With people who you loved, liked and even who lied to you… Wondering how inclusive you are… You always find reason or create one to invite people to home… Few of your friend became mine too… I never forget my first visit to Chennai with you and mom… The movie we watched, the hotel we stayed and the visit to marina… The angry, the way you make peace after the fight Oh, it comes very naturally to me as well… On the job training! Your fight with rheumatoid, a life lesson for us… I used to think, Cigarette and Coffee was the secret of your life But realised now that Cheerfulness and Conviction on what you do was secret of your life… Amazed with your travels… I don’t how you went to Gulf… I used to wait for your letter, just to tear the stamps from that… But those are your footprints, to keep exploring the world! Give me all your strength to explore & conquer the hearts of the world!
