Writing Prompt: Childhood Revisited

Yes,I turned out pretty good, but the thing I would have liked different was to have my Dad longer than twelve years. To make him proud that despite my flimsy excuses of skipping school. I was able to continue and complete my education.

I would also have liked to be able to live in Rawalpindi rather than Bangladesh. My reason is I was comfortable there and I had friends whom I would have liked to be with,even after the completion of my education.

I have nothing against Bangladesh,my parents are from there. We adapted very quickly,we knew the language,thanks to my Dad who taught us how important it is to know one’s mother tongue. I missed my childhood friends, it’s the only reason and also my Dad’s presence in our lives would have been awesome.

“I know the saying man proposes,God disposes.”

I have kids they were fortunate to complete their education in Canada . This is what I wished and luckily my wish was granted.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this. Dads are so very important. This post is poignant in terms of how you express your gratefulness for your Dad, and also your wish that he hadn’t left this world as quickly.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. Great post. I lost my father too, but I had much longer with him. I was 31 when he died. He was such a strong influence on my life and I cannot imagine losing him at such a young age.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Mel
