Apnon ne Apne Dum pe Jeena Sikhayaa
A honest and true account of how
my family members have guided and encouraged me to grow into a better, more self-reliant
person., a blog from the true and honest me.
As the father and the husband of
the household and thereby being the senior most member of the family, it was
quite natural that I was assumed and presumed to be the only candidate eligible
to done the role of the mentor, the trouble shooter, the caretaker for all
other family members. I took of my responsibility in full zeal too, taking care
and embracing my close knit family consisting of my beautiful wife and three
wonderful daughters, my princesses under the cover of the umbrella that my
spread out wings covered, not only with respect to the love and affection that
they needed from me but also the financial support and risk cover to take care
of their needs in case of any unforeseen eventuality of I not being there to
watch over them.
They say, children learn from
their parents, and that may be true to a certain extent, but my practical
experience has made me a firm believer of the maxim that we are constant
learners, we learn from what we see, we learn from our and others’ experiences,
we learn from our mistakes and we learn from our deeds. And in this process of
learning, our teachers, our mentors can be anyone. In my case, it happened to
be my own daughters.
Born and brought up in a very
conservative household, from the southern hemisphere of our country, where risk
taking was considered taboo and securing a job with the Government was the way
to eternal bliss, it was initially a bit difficult for me to shed my inhibitions
and leave the comforts of my secure job and take a plunge into the world of entrepreneurship,
which I did a few years back.
A father with the ultimate
responsibility of seeing three daughters getting married off, how could I even
think of such a stupid idea? These recorded messages by my so called
well-wishers kept playing back in my mind and into my ears. A totally confused
me was at the mercy of breakdown, when my eldest daughter, my angel came as the
mentor to me. It was she who stirred and woke the confidence in me. She
insisted that her Dad was not destined to work under someone for the rest of
his life. She realised the flame in my eyes, my quest to become an entrepreneur
and cajoled me into taking the dive.
Today, as I look back on the
crossroads of my life and career, I have no regrets for having taken the
diversion, the less tread path, when I felt like doing it. My daughter has
been the one who believed in what her Dad was capable of and ensured against
all odds that I achieved it. Years after that fateful decision, today, even she
is following my footsteps on the same profession and ready to take over my
enterprise from where and when I shall be willing to hand over the baton into
her worthy hands.
For me, it was my eldest daughter
with the able support of my ever understanding wife and the loving care of my
other two daughters too, who let me live my life the way I dreamed, so that I
can hold my head high and exclaim, Apnon ne Mujhe Apne Dum par Jeena Sikhaaya.
I could do all this without fear was because I knew always that in any
eventuality, my family will be looked after by HDFC Standard Life Insurance
Company Limited, where I have invested prudently in their various life
insurance policies will ensure that my family will also live their life Apne

    • Yeah baby, Dad feels so happy to know that you realise it. You know that Dad is there for you no matter what the situation is. I can understand how happy you too feel to have made your Accha proud. Accha's love to you three, my beautiful princesses, is unconditional. You will always remain Dad's little princess for ever.
