Father’s Name: Nongmaithem Achouba Singh, Asst Teacher, Kakching
When you were away from for days, weeks, months and years for physical works and later for duties, I missed you and I hated you. When I was sad and hungry because of the hardship, you gave me the courage to live on and do well with studies. Your repeated words “Lairik pu tamge hairadi paisa leitrasu ei (blood) yolla-ga tamhan-gani” made me work harder and stronger within. At times we fought when you became erroneous, that was because you taught me to be sincere in early stages of my life. Dear Baji (and mother too) – I love and thankful to you for whatever you have done for me and I always wish that you live healthy and happy for the rest of the life. Happy Father’s Day and stay healthy always.
