Father’s Day

“A father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.” The celebration of Father’s Day is a notable event as it allows us to give time to commemorate the efforts of a father that he puts in for taking up the responsibility of taking care of the family. He contributes to both family and the society. Besides that, Father’s Day allows the children to express their gratitude and admiration for their father. A good Father-child relationship helps in the emotional development of the child. 
 
On the special occasion of Father’s Day, in an exclusive interview with The Societal, Mr. Jagjit Sabharwal a 47-year-old Tik Tok Star, Model, Influencer, and Motivator from India, and his daughter Baani Sabharwal showcased their sweet and unbreakable father-daughter bond. “The love between a dad and his daughter is unbreakable.” which is evident in their relationship. They show us the true importance of this bond and how it is necessary these days for a father to have a good relationship with his daughter. A father-daughter relationship is very unique and for a daughter, her father is her hero. Baani mentioned how an 18-year-old girl needs an understanding and an open-minded father, how a daughter should feel comfortable and be able to talk about each and everything with her father including important topics such as Menstruation which is a widely neglected topic of discussion in a father-daughter relationship.
Mr. Jagjit is a fun-loving dad who loves to spend time with his daughter and bond over life talks, movies, etc. they both thoroughly enjoy making fun Tik Tok videos and Instagram reels together and because of that, they have got some really negative comments from people about the kind of bond they share. But this doesn’t affect their relationship in any way. They have successfully broken the stereotype that a father should be strict and should have a very formal relationship with his daughter. Even the generation gap between them doesn’t seem to get in their way because regardless that they share everything and have fun together. Baani considers her dad as her best friend, her go-to person, and the one whom she confides in. 
 
Just like any other relationship, this awesome duo of father-daughter also has disagreements on various matters. Mr. Jagjit stated an incident where they had a conflict of interest, his daughter wanted to buy a very expensive phone whereas he thought that it was not worth the money which led to a lot of argument between them but somehow, he convinced her to buy the phone of his choice. These small incidents make their bond even stronger. Mr. Jagjit mentioned several times that how important it is for a father to have a friendly and loving relationship with his daughter and how they should spend more time together because some children have a very formal relationship with their fathers and they don’t even wish their fathers on Father’s Day.
A father is a very important person in a child’s life they are a male role model for them and provide them with a sense of security. A father-child bond is very beautiful and it should be cherished every day and not just today. So, a very Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there.
