I came across this post by Pooja Priyamvada of http://poojapriyamvada.blogspot.com.
It is a post that she wrote on Father’s Day this year. I liked it so much that I requested her permission to re-blog this on my blog. She graciously gave me the permission,
Pooja is a veteran blogger well known in the blog world.
Here is how she describes herself:
I believe I am poet’s soul who is an Online Content Consultant, translator (English/Hindi) & writer/editor by profession but a blogger by sheer coincidence.All my formal education has been in the English language and I have an M.Phil in English literature,but my soul babbles in Hindi as much as it does in English.Hence the two blogs in one language each.Issues of gender,race,identity have always intrigued me.I read Chinua Achebe, Emily Dickinson,Eve Ensler, Salman Rushdie and Khaled Hosseini in the same breath as I do Premchand,Harivansh Rai Bachchan,Gulzar and Sadat Hasan Manto.When not working or reading I write for my blog and learn life lessons with my daughter.My poetry is about my conversations with life and the pauses in between.It has been published in several online and print anthologies in India,UK and Canada and a few poems can be read with a hot cup of coffee on the walls of The Human Bean Cafe,Toronto.My work has appeared online at various reputed National and International websites and portals like The Mighty , Women’s Web, Feminism In India, Momspresso, Bonobology and Writersmelon.Both the blogs have been awarded consecutively at the acclaimed Orange Flower Awards.
